Kenya Airways suspends flights to and from Sudan

Kenya Airways has suspended all flights to and from Sudan following the ouster of President Omar al-Bashir.

The announcement issued Thursday evening comes amid heghtened political protests that led to the downfall of Bashir.

The longtime president of Sudan who served for 30 years, was Thursday arrested by the military after he resigned following four months of bloody demonstrations across the capital Khartoum.

Sudan’s Defense Minister, Awad Mohamed Ahmed Ibn Auf, announced the ouster in what he called “the toppling of the regime.

Effectively, the Sudan military has announced a two year rule, before handing over to a civilian regime.

The military has already declared a state of emergency for the next three months and the Sudan constitution remains suspended.

The organisers have however rejected the two year rule by the military, demanding for immediate investigations and release of all political detainees.
