Sudan’s military leader General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan has disclosed that steps are being taken to the ease the growing tension since the military coup that took place in the country six months ago.
On October 25, al-Burhan along with other military leaders, staged a coup which put an end to a “two-year power sharing arrangement with a civilian political coalition following the ouster of Omar al-Bashir.”
The military, before and after the coup, accused the civilian coalition of power monopoly and total control of the political system.
There has been growing tension with over 94 persons having lost their lives due to heightened security repression. Several others are in detention.
“We are embarking on a difficult period and we must all present concessions for the sake of our country,” he said, noting the deteriorating economic and security situation in the country in comments at a Ramadan gathering.
“We are prepared to put forward what we can to create the atmosphere for a dialogue that leads to solutions,” General Burhan stated.
He further revealed that plans are in the pipeline to ensure the release of detained persons, including some key political leaders who were arrested following the coup.
