2:09 pm
a 3rd term you saw that after the period political space in the country closed there were human rights violations committed was very difficult for international and national media to operate and he basically. plunged me into a protected economic and political crisis what. his legacy the fact that at the end of his term he was willing to step down ok what role did he play a jar in the head the country's civil war. so he was one of the main rebel leaders of the hutu he was one of the main hutu rebel leaders during the civil war but at the end he was willing to choose the political path ok you talked there about sort of the crackdown that happened after him couldn't do that came into power talked to me about what life was like how he changed. in his time in power
2:10 pm
so as i just pointed out of especially at the beginning that he took several measures that helped bring the set on the political path reforms were taken on an economic level but afterwards especially since 2015 the focus came more on the things that he didn't do well so limiting political space and the fact that the economic situation in bruni is currently not in the konami the economy and currently not in a very good state the incoming ruler was seen as is handpicked by the ruling party not necessarily by including jesus himself will include in these death impact the country at all going forward do you think. yes especially in the coming weeks those will be interesting to watch because according to the constitution the president of the national assembly ben there will
2:11 pm
be the interim president whereas the new president or the president elect will only assume office in august this year and ben were supported by were several other generals within the ruling party favorite the candidacy of over at least so it's interesting too to see whether in the coming weeks there will be tensions within the ruling party moving forward. thank you for your time very my apologies for speaking of you we have a little bit of delay with the line to nairobi thank you for your time now the cave and develop there from the international crisis group. head of the u.n. human rights commission says the surrender of a sudanese militia the is extruding significant. faces war crimes charges that the international criminal court relating to the conflict in darfur ousted sudanese president omar bashir is also wanted by the i.c.c. for his role in the darfur conflict. just
