An African condemnation of the killing of protesters in Sudan and a call for the “return of the constitution”

The African Union condemned, in a statement issued today, Saturday, “the killing of at least 10 people and the injury of others” in the recent demonstrations in Sudan.

The African Union called on the security forces to “allow peaceful demonstrators to exercise their rights.”

The African Union also called on the Sudanese authorities to “restore the constitutional status and abide by the constitutional document signed in 2019”.

This comes as doctors in favor of civilian rule announced that the death toll from the security response to the demonstrations since October 25 has risen to 40, after the death of a boy on Saturday from serious injuries sustained on Wednesday.

Last month, the army chief, Major General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, declared a state of emergency. Since then, protests have been organized against the army calling for the return of civilian authority, especially in the capital, Khartoum.

And last Wednesday witnessed violent demonstrations, which, according to the Medical Syndicate, led to the killing of 16 people, while the police confirmed that only one person died, stressing that they do not open fire on the demonstrators.

In a related context, activists on social networks called, on Saturday, for a “million demonstration” tomorrow, Sunday.

In a tweet on “Twitter”, the Sudanese Professionals Association called for a number of gatherings throughout the week, including a massive “million” demonstration on Sunday, and similar demonstrations on Thursday.
