Patience is no longer key to a successful political transition in Sudan

Amid the ongoing conflict in Sudan, there is a need for civilian rule and subsequent democracy, according to a recent opinion piece by Byamukama. Since the 2021 coup, the country has been run by the army, and neither coup leader General Abdel Fattah Burhan nor Rapid Support Forces leader General Mohammed Hamdan Dangalo appear to have any intention of relinquishing power. The concern is that the fighting might escalate and destabilize the entire region, spilling over into neighboring countries, such as Chad and Egypt, which are also under juntaism and limited democracy.
