Sudan Coup Attempt Woefully Fails as Authorities Take Over

Sudan Coup Attempt has played out the wrong way as recent developments show that nation is currently ruled under a fragile power-sharing deal between the military and civilians.

The reason for this arrangement is due to the reality of the present situation on the ground following the attempt to overthrow former President Omar al-Bashir in April 2019.

The Agency report revealed that the Sudanese authorities had contained a failed coup attempt, meaning efforts and the intentions of plotters did not come to fruition.

The report further noted that a member of the country’s ruling council told Reuters that the situation had been brought under control on Tuesday.

Authorities to Begin Quizzing Sudan Coup Plotters

Interrogation of suspects involved in the attempted coup on Monday was due to begin, and the military would issue a statement shortly, spokesman Mohamed Al Faki Suleiman said.

While speaking on condition of anonymity, a government source said the coup attempt had involved an effort to take control of state radio in Omdurman, across the River Nile from the capital, Khartoum.

Measures were being taken to contain a limited number of people involved, the source said.

A witness said that the military had used tanks to close a bridge connecting Khartoum with Omdurman early on Tuesday morning.
