the trouble is in your remarks series. the like. i love you even once you're in work today you certainly look to the source like me to see. if the story. gets very personal tips very. good. t.w. . this is fate every news applicant coming up in the next 15 minutes a significant step in. the military route 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
11:31 pm
on his need to see. the union. i'm christine want to welcome to news africa i'm glad your change 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 cause 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 negotiations bits. in
11:32 pm
protest leaders and the military would being held there on june the security forces moved in on protesters camped outside the military headquarters the army say 61 people were killed but the opposition says that real number is 128. now the agreement signed in part 2 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 of the next 18. and for more on this i'd like to bring in a bring him a reporter from sudan recently just before it is to were removed from that military headquarters city and good to have you what is the essence of the power sharing agreement that's been signed into 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
11:33 pm
sort of like the beginning of what could be a transitional period that could lead after 3 years into 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 i want to pick up with you on that. this is a historic moment in sudan and it's 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 opposition 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
11:34 pm
a correct assessment i would say and the biggest proof of that is the man who we just heard give the sound bite the fact that committee who is not the head of the transitional military council is being sort of the face of this transitional deal 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's still able to be the face of this deal 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 at a document that he's decided is what is being called
11:35 pm
a constitutional declaration that is the next step in this process why is this likely to be a tough for the 1st reason is. in this project in this country constitutional declaration the whole question of immunity for military leaders are supposed to. be discussed in detail that 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 things 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.

sounds all the late south african singer songwriter johnny clegg who has died at the age of 66 clegg defied signification goals and was one of the few white autists openly criticize the apostate government in the late 1970 s. and eighty's he died peacefully at his home with his family in johannesburg alter a long battle with pancreatic cancer. they called him the white zulu johnny clegg was one of south africa's most celebrated musicians mastering the language culture and high kicks dance. that a white man in a mixed race band he became a symbol of the promise of post apartheid south africa. that could you.
