Last month, Al Burah removed civilian Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok and dissolved the sovereignty council, Sudan’s top body. Two days ago, Al Burhan announced a new sovereignty council and selected himself as the head of the new sovereignty council for two years.
Pro-democracy supporters took to the streets across Sudan on Saturday. The protesters chanted slogans against the Sudanese military and Sudanese army chief Abdul Fattah Al Burhan. Sudanese military tried to stop the protesters by firing bullets and tear gas shells but people turned up in large numbers in Saturday’s protest rallies.
Sudanese opposition parties and professional unions rejected the new sovereignty council and demanded the restoration of the previous civilian government.
Meanwhile, despite orders from a Sudanese court, the internet is still cut across Sudan. Civil disobedience, protests, and road blocks by Sudanese pro-democracy activists continue.

I am an American who was raised in Shewa Robit where Afar, Amhara, and Oromo tribes meet every tuesday on market day. My father built the first school at Robi in 1962. I am very aware of the ancient tribal rivalres in Ethiopia and I love you non bias, objective observations of the situation. I have returned to Robi three different times and know the area well. One thing you and my other favorite youtube reporter “military and foreign affairs network” seem to be clueless about is why the TDF have stopped their southern advance on the Desi roat at Atiyea for over a week. There is a large ENDF army base and prison
at Shewa Robi. The second thing you both need to know is — if/IF the TDF army could defeat the ENDF army at Robi, they still could never/EVER get through a 100-200 meter tunnel at the top of the 11,000 foot mountian (the Itallians built in 1940s) just 5-10 kilometers west of Debra Sina!!!!! One ENDF soldier could hold the whole TDF army off with one machine gun, or just blow the tunnel up and TDF army could never get through the colapsed tunnel. I suspect one other reason the TDF has stopped at Atiyae is — their is a gravel road the goes up the steep mountian road up to the 10,00 foot plateau that leadds to the only big town on the plauteu MUNS. If the TDF could secure all the small towns along that alternate high mountian road, the could by pass Robi and the tunnel. I suspect tat is why they have not advanced further downt he Desi road. I hope this information helps you understand why the TDF advance on the Desi road has come to a halt. I am not telling you any secret information!!! Every Tigray , or Amharas, Oromo or Afar who has traveled up and down the Desi road know what I just told you — but since you are in Pakistan and have never been on the Desi road, I thought I might clue you in — because I love your reporting!!! As an outsider, you seem very fair and balanced to me. God bless you. Keep up the good work.
thanks for your extremely valuable input. Read it very late. Now Shewa Robit seems to have come under ENDF control. ENDF shared pictures from Debre Sina yesterday
