3:53 am
a very good of you to take the time to speak to us now protestors have refused to leave the street since the ousting of president tomorrow bashir is it your sense your understanding that they will continue to defy this military audit curfew. while and thank you for having me a listener protesters will never leave the street and they will keep remanding in the streets until the government is thrown out and it's part of the time that the head of the x. president was removed from from from from the thrawn let me call it it's run but he still has his supporters there even the new transitional government will look at it suspiciously at a skeptically because these are the sam species that we. that source to us have to go to the streets so we don't want we don't want them to be there with the full on drugs or government or not we want new faces will never
3:54 am
accept them because we don't want to don't want any type of garbage recycling process or repeating or to group the producer producing the same image so that is why we'll be on the street all of the university professors process ition will be on the street dining the peaceful demonstrators till the end of this protest is took to the streets and they wanted the military to take a position on this we getting obviously that has now happened the military for now are striking a very moderate and they're saying look we don't have any ambitions to hold the reins of power we simply want to guide the country forward and they say they are prepared to listen to protect the protesters. the problem is this is the same case is that they deceive us they have been deceiving us for more than mean for safety is so we never trust any word they are. sure that they will they will
3:55 am
deceive us that is why we don't want anyone from from them to come out so we be the only people that you trust the association does it belong to so if they really want to hand over the. potty to the people who let them bring the people to speak on our behalf of buzz as members from from from the from the government i mean the same the same members there were so i mean will not accept them or trolls . so it's one thing for the president to be up for it it's another thing the you know the entire regime and all the kind of institutions on the pillars of power in the country to immediately disappear that does have to be some sort of interim period are you objecting to these to the people to those that are leading it do they have to go immediately or you are you calling for a
3:56 am
a much shorter transitional period not two years which is what the military lash short a transitional period is acceptable we can accept it but shouldn't sit more than four to six months but we have to make sure that civilians participate in seriously and everything should be on the huns but to be i mean things to be on the government's i mean on the military hands particularly those people who are to speak on behalf of the government so these are the people you don't want to see them and there are some what they call it there are some offices that. people can accept but for those who are there will never accept them particularly this big military has supported or indeed and now the military says that they will not abide by any sort of chaos or instability do you fear what might happen and the protesters continue to stay on the streets and demonstrate. definitely.
3:57 am
professor so it could be staying under street and kill all our demands are met until we make sure that. our demands are met. live the streets but we have to make sure that all the honorable members that belong to the creators of these nutrition . we have to see them on the terrible. releasing statements talking on behalf of the people then we can go by but. without the presence of these honorable men we will never go back because as i've said before you know these people have been deceiving us for thirty is everybody if you ask every small child will never trust them how could we. i don't know how can i put it but these people you know we always look at them skeptically. and they are they are
3:58 am
not they are not the people that. they are the people of sudan will bring them back again and you are not going to repeat the same the same the same mistakes that you made before by accepting right well thank you for speaking to us this evening honey to do that joining us there from harvard to see done on our question salumi joins us live from the united nations in new york and we certainly got a sense of the fast pace of developments there in sudan after one of africa's longest serving presidents has been on seated what is the reaction of the international community what have you been hearing there. well the secretary general antonio good terrorism the high commissioner for human rights have all expressed their concern about the situation in sudan given this military takeover and the fact that the security council met already behind closed doors to get briefed on the situation on the ground shows according to the president of the security council just that the international community is watching the situation
3:59 am
very closely that is the german ambassador christophe and he made those comments after the meeting but there's no official action from the security council at this time the europeans however have been very outspoken and calling for the protection of the rights of protesters they've also expressed concern the united kingdom in particular most forcefully that the call for a two year transition to a civilian government isn't sufficient they think that that transition should perhaps come more quickly and say that they are watching the situation very carefully sudan's charest affairs for the united nations attempted to allay some of the concerns of the international community earlier in the day speaking to the council saying that the military government is committed to a peaceful transition to a civilian government based on the will of the sudanese people then the god the him what it will be the military transitional council was responding to the
4:00 am
sudanese people's aspirations for china and works to protect the lives of its citizens as well as their well being this council will be the guarantor of a civilian government to be formed and collaboration with the political forces and stakeholders no party will be excluded from the political process including the groups moreover the suspension of the constitution could be lifted at any point and the transitional period could be shortened depending on developments on the ground and agreements with stakeholders. and while the sudanese chargé d'affaires said that the support of the international community was welcome and sought by the military in sudan he stressed that this is a quote domestic affair and that the international community shouldn't get directly involved at this time protesters in sudan and many in the human rights community would disagree they point out that.
