An aide and workplace director of Sudan’s now-arrested Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok advised CNN that the premier was conscious of military plans and was beneath strain to dissolve the federal government.

The adviser, Adam al-Hireika, mentioned that he visited Hamdok on Sunday night the place he mentioned the present state-of-affairs. Hamdok had simply met with military chief Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, who declared the coup on state-TV on Monday. 

“I say he was cautiously optimistic that there was an opening for agreement, but I think the military side wanted him to dissolve the government and he insisted on not unless there is a process and there is an agreement between political parties,” he advised CNN’s Becky Anderson.

“This morning, when I heard about what happened I went to the PM’s residence, he is my boss and friend. I went to his residence unfortunately he wasn’t there. His wife and him were taken to an unknown destination by soldiers,” he added. 

Burhan mentioned in a press release that power-shared council and authorities had been dissolved and declared a state of emergency after a balanced power-sharing settlement with the civilian element “became a conflict” over the previous two years, “threatening peace and unity” in Sudan.

“What, General Burhan mentions in his address, actually what most of a lot of it was agreed between the two parties, but as the PM stood very strongly against dissolving the government without a process. I think that was the biggest issue of contention,” Hireika mentioned.

Hireika warned of a civil battle in Sudan if there was a return to military rule. 

“Well, I think the bigger picture, a return to military rule will mean more civil war in Sudan and instability in the region as a result,” he added.
