5:04 pm
think. the protesters have to stay on the streets until a civilian not a military transitional council is in place. i don't even now in studio w.'s not. not i mean things are changing so fast on the ground we heard the latest news of don's interim leader announcing the formation of a limited civilian government within two years what do you make of that recent announcement it's interesting because he kind of made some concessions towards the protests movement to the. leaders. in contradiction to his predecessor who stepped down yesterday so it's not really known what's going to happen next because basically he said it's going to take two years that's was his produce is for disaster said yesterday so i'm not sure if the process would be happy with that that it's taking two years for them to have a transitional civilian government so we'll have to see how things develop in the
5:05 pm
next few weeks we've seen of course a few other victories for these protesters the defense minister abruptly stepping down that curfew has now been lifted will this all be enough to get those protesters off the streets or do you expect them to keep protesting. yeah this is actually part of what they were demanding the actually what i hear from from all the people i've talked to and all what will be given in the news people actually the more important thing is to have a civilian government as soon as possible now the. leaders of the protest. movement they've met today with the military council and it seems that they're making some progress they're coming forward and they're trying to reach a deal what is very important for the protesters and their leaders is to have the civilian government and not to have to be under military rule in the next. few
5:06 pm
years maybe five months we heard that announcement of the military perhaps handing over some power to civilians how much trust is there though right now between the civilians in the military this is the problem trust is a very. rare thing here because people they don't want this egyptian like scenario to repeat itself in sudan they saw that the military in egypt took over power and they ousted the democratically elected president and then they just stayed in power and now they have a kind of a massive crackdown on. kind of opposition so they don't want this to happen in sudan and that's why they are still protesting still demanding that really civilian government should. be in power as soon as possible another hang on a just a second we'll come back to you because we want to bring in a similar story that's been unfolding in algeria thousands of demonstrators there have defied riot police to stage a mass protest in the capital. friday in
5:07 pm
a row now an interim government has been announced has announced elections in july replace the ousted former president. but opponents there say the old regime is trying to cling to power just in a new guys. are coming back. strong similarities between what's going on the sudan and algeria how would you compare the two and perhaps even comparisons as you mentioned the arab spring and twenty yeah this is interesting because when these protests broke out and people started to magically comparing this to what happened in two thousand and eleven in tunisia and egypt so we see that the motives of the people why they go. to demonstrate where they take the streets are the same the dire economic situation the prize is very high of bread and you know basically the things. is in
5:08 pm
a very bad situation high unemployment especially among the youth and this is actually you who are. in the process the protesters are the youth they are taking the street you can imagine a country like nigeria is actually supposed to be rich. to the oil and gas and all these are natural resources of thirty percent almost of them are unemployed out of forty two. million people so the problem is really the youth needs to see a change in. it's to see really all this corruption and all this of the turn in regimes gone and this is what's happening now no jury and so down i think it's also sending a very strong signal to other african countries sub-saharan countries who look very carefully who which very carefully what's happening is for the jury of those young people in the streets they want change or not are also to us from desk thanks very
