TIME IS UP! Sudan’s Bashir Bans Protests, Regulates Foreign Currency Trade In Latest Emergency Measures

Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir has banned unlicensed public gatherings in a move aimed at curtailing protests.

In a statement issued by the presidential palace, Bashir also announced a ban on trading or hoarding subsidised fuel products, as well as new regulations on trading and transporting foreign currency and gold.

This comes days after the Sudanese strongman had announced a yearlong state of emergency, dissolved the federal government and sacked all state governors. This failed to end protests.

Protesters in the capital Khartoum and other cities across the country, have staged an almost daily demonstrations demanding that Bashir steps down.

On Sunday, Bashir swore 18 governors constituting 16 army officers and two officers from the National Intelligence and Security Service as new governors for the country’s 18 provinces. Governance experts see this as a caretaker government.

The US has criticised Khartoum saying, it is ‘deeply concerned’ by the state of emergency, calling on the government to ‘respect the rights of all individuals’, and to end the ‘repression of peaceful protests’.

It remains to be seen how the new decree will help the dictator’s hold on power.
