The Sudanese Army has today said that it will make what it has described as “important pronouncement”, which is widely expected to determine the fate of President Omar Hassan Ahmad Al-Bashir.  

 

This development comes on the heels of months of violent anti-government protests during which dozens of Sudanese lost lives and hundreds injured.

 

 "The Sudanese army will issue an important statement soon. Wait for it," said local media. No details were given  

 

The sit-in around the military Headquarters which doubles as President Omar Hassan Ahmad Al-Bashir’s residence enters the sixth day today.

 

Bashir has ruled Sudan for over three decade and served what looks to be his last term has been characterized by serious economic challenges that induced uprising against one the longest African leaders.

 

Inter Criminal Court (ICC) issued a warrant arrest for Bashir in 2009 for war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in the war-ravaged Darfur region.  He narrowly escaped a nearly-done arrest while at an African Union conference in Johannesburg in June 2015.
