and the time one needs to continue to reject it common sense is party to a conflict. in 60 minutes. good job it. surely to scream africa the world we're willing to accept your story and discussion. of easy and while we do dare you to come smart to join or something support. for. this instead of the news epic that coming up in the next 15 minutes a significant step into the military route isn't opposition coalition have signed a power sharing agreement but this is just one of the documents that need significance will be looking ahead to the next hurdle the parties face. and south africa bid farewell to the white. musician johnny clegg has died at 66 we reflect
8:31 pm
on his need to see. the words. i'm christine want to welcome to deja news africa i'm glad you're chained in a power sharing deal between on the road is an be opposition coalition has been signed in sudan it's a significant step but there's sort of major obstacle to overcome more on that in a moment because this 1st look at the events that led to this point in december actually government protests that would last for months erupted across sudan the demonstrations were initially over bread price rises but soon shifted to calls for amal bashir to step down then in april bashir was removed from office by the army but protests continued with people demanding civilian rule negotiations bit. in
8:32 pm
protest leaders and the military would being held there on june the security forces moved in on protesters camped outside the military headquarters the army say 61 people were killed but the opposition say is that real number is 128. now the agreement signed and hard to today establishes a joint civilian military council that will rule the country for a little over 3 years while elections are being organized a military leader will head the 11 member council for the 1st 21 months followed by a civilian leader will the next 18. and for more in this life so bring in a ybor him a reporter from sudan recently just before purchases were removed from that military headquarters sitting good to have you so what is the essence of the power sharing agreement that's been signed into law today i mean basically it is that it is a power sharing agreement it's by no means an answer to the main civilian demand which is complete civilian rule and
8:33 pm
a sense of it also is that this marks sort of like the beginning of what could be a transitional period that could lead after 3 years into a democratic turn in sudan's history but it's also a huge concession on the side of the protesters for the military leaders ok speaking of military leaders this isn't one of them and one of the general speaking today and i want to pick up with you on that. this is a historic moment in sudan and it's path and one which creates a start of a new partnership between the armed forces the rapid support forces and all the components of sudan's ruling regime. and our partners in the your position coalition of forces of freedom and change. what you. have there is the sense that the military has has had the upper hand here is this a correct assessment of the situation that's
8:34 pm
a correct assessment i would say and the biggest proof of that is the man who we just heard gave the soundbite the fact that committee who is not the head of the transitional military council is being sort of the face of this transitional deal is the biggest proof anyone needs that the military has the upper hand this is a very unpopular man the rest of the rapid support forces that he commands are accused of. committing. unheard of violence against the protesters just last month in june 3rd and yet he's still able to be the face of this deal but another another sort of sign that the military is in turn is the duration they'll be in charge for the 1st 21 months as opposed to the civilians will come and the last 18 months but perhaps most significant is how this entire this deal has unraveled the opposition a lot at least one of the members of the opposition has spoken out against this deal so they've lost their unity in this negotiation as well ok another deal that needs to settle in a document that he signed is what is being called the constitutional declaration
8:35 pm
that is the next step in this process why is this likely to be a tough for the 1st reason is. in this project in this country a constitutional declaration the whole question of immunity for military leaders are supposed to. be discussed in detail the protesters have demanded that members of the military council just. such as how many would not be given political immunity for alleged crimes committed against the protesters but also things like who gets to veto members of the cabinet or the breakdown of the legislative council which would be the defacto parliament of sudan in the transitional period all of these details can be very very contentious the military wants to maintain its upper hand the protesters want to save face in front of the people that they represent so we can expect more heated discussions in the coming days or weeks it remains to be seen. thank you.

sounds off the late south african singer songwriter johnny clegg who has died at the age of 66 plagued defy of segregation laws and was one of the few white autists openly criticize the apartheid government in than 1970 s. and eighty's he died peacefully at his home with his family in johannesburg alter a long battle with pancreatic cancer. they called him the white zulu johnny clegg was one of south africa's most celebrated musicians mastering the language culture and high kicks of zulu dance. that pitted a white man in a mixed race band he became a symbol of the promise of post apartheid south africa. that could you.
8:37 pm
say that i was always a bridge for white people into the possibility of connecting with. another culture. not in an academic but since she was engaged and a mode of sharing. clegg was a musical pioneer blending zulu rhythms from his adopted south africa with western styles he defied racial segregation one of only a few white artists to openly criticize the apartheid regime it was more than mere entertainment famously used his music to campaign finance and mandela's release many of his songs became anthems for the anti apartheid struggle. a career highlight came in 1997 when mandela then president of south africa
