In late October, joint military forces detained civilian members of Sudan’s governing body, in addition to a number of ministers within the transitional government.
Armed forces detained Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok over his refusal to support their coup.
The military junta has since cut off internet in an apparent bid to to prevent the world from seeing seeing what is happening in the country. Army checkpoints have been set up on all major roads with several roads leading to the capital cut off by men in military uniform.
The country’s main pro-democratic political group Sudanese Professional’s Association (SPA) has been organising regular workers’ strikes in protest at the coup.
