moment even though wolf stepped down as the head of the transitional council after only one day as head of state. and two days later on sunday the army finally in the once a way statement of a possible transition to civilian government what are some of your thoughts we want from you and we wish. that everybody reaches an agreement in a short period of time we need to find an agree on an independent and a national figure to become prime minister. no timeline given no names in the ring the role of the army remains unclear instead the appointment of another military figure to keep position. to move out of there now it's the appointment of

a new intelligence chief. booka mustapha. on monday five thousand people blocked an attempt by the army to break up of the protest camp outside the defense ministry this after the army brought in truck to to remove the barricades. the fall off amal bashir is the latest in a wave of changes sweeping away many of africa's longest serving rule is just days before bashir was pushed out of office abilities bush a fake off algeria was ousted off to weeks of protests the military eventually turned on the eighty two year old and he was forced to resign after nearly two decades in power before which if eco was zimbabwe's rabbit mugabe who was removed from office in twenty seventeen off to thirty four years the difference here is there were no protest at least not the kind we've seen in algeria and sudan but it's the military was instrumental in helping the faction of mugabe's party that

profit his step now among africa's remaining long serving the leaders all paul b.-a of cameroon the eighty six year old one who lost his presidential election with and with thirty seven years in office is currently the longest ruling non royal leader in the world uganda's un with seventy trails not too far behind at thirty three is in office now my guest today wrote an opinion piece he titled africa extinction of the dinosaurs in the article published in all africa dumisani malaya sais it's the end of an era for african dictators the journalist and political commentator joins me now from zimbabwe as capital. welcome to. africa mr malaya we've seen a pass in here of military intervention. in terms of these long ruling leaders and you've written that elections in many countries in africa are a militia raid so for the countries that are still holding these long really need
7:35 pm
protests and then military intervention looking like the only way change can come about in these countries. it is the phenomena of military intervention in this country is in these african countries as we have seen in in zimbabwe in algeria and so it's fundamentally a product of a failed electoral process is failed to look for systems. of people have been given so many opportunities to vote and tried to express themselves and should change in their countries those systems failed them and as a result you see in the intervention of the military in. algeria in zimbabwe before that in sudan is primarily because the person sees the electoral process is notes leads into mates they are made
7:36 pm
a sherry and the people when they fail to free the expression of those processes they end up to bring up with the military in order to effect change ok but you sort of alluded in that opinion piece you sort of teaming up with the military to baria words as an unconstitutional removal of the dictators and then you say that that makes the transition from dictatorship to democracy complicated are you saying that that's what we've seen in algeria and sudan and what is the prospect of democracy for these countries. yeah it makes it very complicated because when the military gets involved in the politics to begin with is undemocratic it's unconstitutional although it is desirable because most of these people are in forces with the military to overthrow a dictator as they would have been trying the electoral process is in failing they would have been appreciated and failed leadership and they failed economic polices for a long time so they end up. in the process of teaming up with the military you create
7:37 pm
a new problem because when you overthrow the constitution you overthrow the dictator has now you three is a huge challenge of secession from dictate. the democrats are. very very different democratic institutions when they get involved in politics they will do things the way they nor best which is the commander way and the that is my first thing is for the prison to be the zimbabwe. is that are made by the heavily militarized that is why you are having a very difficult transition because the military itself is not a democratic institution and they would really want to ensure. that remember in the first place they involved primarily because they wanted to solve any problem. their positions right and indeed to be. so they were not in the first place to democratize the process so that this experience of the probabilities because of the
7:38 pm
real reason why they were involved in the first place which was to present themselves of preservation ok mr mann i want to get to the question here and that is in this piece that i'm referencing you talk about now being this full of dictators this is this is the end of the era you say and i'm i'm wondering why you use years so adamant up now being the time given the fact that we've seen dictators in other countries for libya for example why you adamant about now being the time. knowledge is. really watched because. that is great. because people power if you just say we want to break the arab spring you saw it we've. uprisings in north africa the middle east the people are taking the power in to be on his to confront the one of them in egypt who was a long serving dictates i was and he was overthrown during that period and we also
7:39 pm
saw the same situation happening in tunisia so when people begin to feel that they can be able to effect a change through uprisings through the streets the politics of. there's truths about them that would buy loads to introduce a new dynamic and that new demanded be dynamic was playing itself out in zimbabwe algeria and also don so it is clear that we now have different kinds of politics who brought a kind of pull it was bring also is in africa and about is that indicative i was across the because i was maybe remain in power journalist and political commentator do recently have from how that is the bob we thank you. it's a month since. we have to have a south east africa the storm killed more than one thousand people in mozambique some bubbly and malawi hundreds of people are still missing as a result of his afia flooding that hit the region the world bank estimates that three million people are still suffering the ofter effects off the natural disaster one of the worst affected places was the port city of beira in walls and be our
