Sudanese Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok yesterday confirmed that the special committee established to dismantle the regime of former President Omar Al-Bashir will speed up its operations.
"We will speed up the completion of the transitional authority structures," Hamdok said, adding that "real urgent decisions will be issued to fortify the transition" stressing that "the current partnership must be strengthened."
Earlier in the day, Sudanese authorities said they had foiled an attempted coup orchestrated by Al-Bashir loyalists.
Hamdok explained that "the coup attempt involved planning to create chaos in cities and closing roads in eastern Sudan."
Unrest in Port Sudan in the east of the country formed part of the plot to destabilise the country, he continued.
