Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has addressed the nation after a faled coup attempt in the country.
During his address, he described the failed coup as an attempt to derail the country’s transition to civilian rule.
The prime minister also accused loyalists of former President Omar al-Bashir, who was ousted two years ago by the military following countrywide protests of being behind the action.
Hamdok thereafter explained that several days of unrest in Port Sudan in the east of the country were also part of a plot to destabilise the country.
Sudan has a power sharing arrangement with military and civilian representatives while there has been indications that some elements within the military are likely to be strongly opposed to a transition that will see them lose considerable power.
