you. know this is state every news outlet that coming up in the next 15 minutes a significant step into the military rule isn't opposition coalition have signed a power sharing agreement but this is just one of the documents that need signatures 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 on his make a scene. in the room.
5:16 am
i'm christine want to welcome to news africa i'm glad you're changed in a power sharing deal between on the road liz and the 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 anti-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 the go between protest leaders and the military were being held there on june 3rd security forces moved in on protesters camped outside the military headquarters the army say 60. one people
5:17 am
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 for the next 18. and for more on this i'd like to bring in a ybor him a reporter from sudan recently just before protesters were removed from that military headquarters sit in the chair so what is the essence of the power sharing agreement that's been signed in hartle today i mean basically 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 or in the essence 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
5:18 am
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 a one of them one of the general speaking today and then i want to pick up with you on that. this is a historic moment in sudan and its 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 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
5:19 am
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 and june 3rd and yet he is still able to be the face of the steel 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 another document that he society is what is being called the constitutional declaration that is the next step in this process why is this likely to be a tough the 1st reason is. in this project in this conflict constitutional declaration
5:20 am
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 it is 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.
