Sudanese Prime Minister, Abdalla Hamdok resigns amid mass protests


Sudanese Prime Minister, Abdalla Hamdok has announced his resignation amid mass protests over the military’s rule.

According to reports, the military launched a coup in October and put Mr Hamdok under house arrest, but he was reinstated the next month after signing a new power-sharing deal.

Demonstrators have since continued to take to the streets to demand an entirely civilian political leadership.

“I decided to give back the responsibility and announce my resignation as prime minister, and give a chance to another man or woman of this noble country to… help it pass through what’s left of the transitional period to a civilian democratic country,” Hamdok said.

Meanwhile, it was gathered that not less than 56 people have been killed in protests since the coup on 25 October 2021.
