cyclons are. fairly regular but. not this regular normally where used to cyclists in the coast we have some similar cycler further south in the country in two thousand and seventy. so it's just. that this is the situation in mozambique where one of the main dynamics is that we have a large areas of low lying land. and a lot of river systems that come in from inland and on the continent of africa come through mozambique into the indian ocean so the coastal areas the most extreme susceptible to flooding so butters from that care in mozambique thank you sir for taking the time to speak to us you're welcome. i want to tell you now about some of the of the stories making news around the world. emergency responders in eastern

5:16 pm
mainstream politicians. but first protesters in sudan have vowed to escalate their action if the country's military council insists on maintaining sovereign powers until elections are held on demonstrators in the capital hard to continue their protested day after the so-called million strong march for civilian rule they have been massing outside army headquarters ever since the ousting of president obama bashir just over two weeks ago. all right and with me here is our very own jeff i became who has just returned from sudan great to have you here with us again extraordinary images coming out of a heart to thousands of people surrounding the army h.q. demanding they seek power you just returned from higher to what was the atmosphere like the that we just saw is where you see every day on the streets of course to
5:17 pm
people are angry people are frustrated people say we will protect our revolution with our blood too i even heard this phrase because people say you know it's either no or never we have to protect our revolution the military council should hand over the power to a civilian council that's what we want and the thing as we will not accept ok now how much stress is there that the military will make good on its promise to hold elections and allow for civilian causes this is the thing going on according what i see and when i talk to the people i don't think they trust the military because they just look to their neighbors in egypt and they know what happened there so they have the feeling the military is saying no it's only a part it's only a small amount of time where we are in power but they are afraid that the military will take over the power for a longer time and that's. that's why they are very persistent on saying no we don't want to have ministry in power ok so we know what the protesters don't want gone with the army yes what do they want twenty agree i'm you know the protesters are
5:18 pm
here true genius group from people there are different parties you have the professional association you have the youth of the river you should you have everyone today in sudan says i'm a reviewer person i'm a protester you know there's no one unity among them and that's and that's you should understand it i mean thirty years of dictatorship and now suddenly you cannot imagine that they are united because i even heard you know people saying the dictator is gone but the dictatorship is not done and and when you talk to the people they never had this opportunity to express their opinion to say what they think there's no political structures organization it's all now happening people are it's the discovering of politics is discovery of being part is the discovery of having a voice so they are not united you have the audience of freedom and change they are down the anti government anti. military but among them they are also not united and they don't unite all protesters and this is important to say
5:19 pm
because when we look from here from say from berlin to to to sudan we think it's all organized and you have. parties and all of that but it's not the case everyone in the street feels like i have a voice no i want to talk i want to protest because there was no civil society so you're brushing grass roots movement exam forming a civil society in real time what i wonder you've been there too far yes why is the army taking a wait and see approach because they could just go into squashes protests what are they afraid of they are too smart to do this giving the people the feeling we are for you we support you we love you we're protected you from the very bad guy personnel the she the president the dictator and we are the one who made the last step in order to letting. step down and now they are observing you know it's kind of observing even when you look at the sit in area where the protesters are it's at the headquarters you see everyone observing they know everything going on and they will not give the people of the feeling that we are against you they would do it
5:20 pm
that the right time according to what i see and what i observed that they would do it at the right time when there is no unity and then they say here we are again we are the ones we can unite to we are the ones who can protect you because protection and security is also what. part of the people's thinking the whole time because you know over the wars that happened in sudan people are sick somehow afraid in the say they could protect us but we want the cabinets and the power to be by civilians so it's going to be really interesting to see what's going to happen with it and like egypt or will the protesters they know will not accept it so the next day is the next weeks would be saying it more and more are very very crucial there thank you so very well craig we appreciate it thank you and we're going to turn our attention now to spain that country is gearing up for its third general election in just four years this weekend prime minister fetter sanchez is leading the polls but neither
