Sudan’s telecom providers began restoring mobile access to the internet weeks after service was cut off following a deadly crackdown on protesters.
Telephone communications were restored on Wednesday night and the Internet was reconnected in the afternoon.
With the new development, the new military government has taken a step towards conciliation after the bloody day of mobilization during which 15 demonstrators lost their lives, through gunshots by the military, général Abdel Fattah al-Burhan chose to calm the tensions.
On October 25, General Burhane reshuffled the deck in a transition that had been shaky for months. He swept almost all civilians out of power and put an end to the sacred union formed in 2019 by civilians and the military.
For more than three weeks, the repression had been escalating with many protesters killed in the pro-democracy demonstration
Earlier this week, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State for African Affairs Molly Phee shuttled between Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok under house arrest and General Burhan.
The US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced that the world would be able to support Sudan again if “the army gets the train (of the transition) back on track”.
But the general seems inflexible: he recently reappointed himself as head of the interim authorities, dismissing members who support exclusively civilian rule.
