a prime minister to form a civilian government. so we initiated this even before the session with the african union. this is our conviction and this is also the way forward to peace but also we respect it and we are committed to the decision of the i used peace and security council. for the now there's been some angry reaction to the statement a huge chip is than most often the mohamad put out on sudan in it he condemned sudan's military take of a saying it wasn't the appropriate response to the challenges facing the country well researcher and political commentator michael korda will be gave us his take on the statement and the reaction it sparked among some africans. african union has a well articulated policy premix and yet it struggles to implement them so i personally think that it's a zero tolerance and meanings when it comes to military coups because already after
7:05 am
the peace and security contingent they decided that. if. saddam function council military transition plans all of that and over the party the civilians they will. definitely. cause options on them so i personally think it's high time that the african continent which has certain items to us in the charity. doesn't know backlash to once the african union is criticism or military takeover i personally think one of the reasons is because he's always been a negative perception one of the country top one of. a lot of africans think that it's an x. exclusive for you or to sports and only speaks out when one of them is to bolt. so how the challenge is that one hand is deterrent to zero tolerance to once
