Over thirty officers are among the arrested and interrogated, General Abdel Fattah Burhan, chairman of the Sovereign Transitional Council (CST), said in a speech during the visit to a military base on the outskirts of the capital.
However, he refrained from specifying whether those involved intended to reinstate the deposed president.
The General urged the population to strengthen the national unity of civilians and the military ‘to build the Sudan that our children dream of, of freedom, peace and justice.’
Meanwhile, units of the Special Forces and the Police are looking for others involved in the attempt, according to dispatches from the SUNA news agency and the press, in contradiction with statements by the official CST spokesman, Mohammed Faki Sulaiman, who had stated that all the involved are in custody.
Although smothered, the attempt shows the existence in the Sudan of forces dissatisfied with the prevailing economic conditions and the slowness of the transition to a civilian government after 30 years of authoritarianism by al-Bashir and two of management by the civic-military government.
