SAF chief Burhan aims to take ousted Bashir’s place – businessman

Egyptian businessman Naguib Sawiris sparked conversation among his followers after a tweet in which he stated that the Chairman of the Transitional Sovereignty Council in Sudan, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, aims to take the place of the ousted Sudanese dictator, Omar al-Bashir.

The controversy started with a tweet posted by Sawiris on platform, X (formerly known as Twitter), where he said: “Oh God… stop the war in Sudan and stop the war in Ukraine, help their people, and assist our country in overcoming its crisis.”

In response, a user named Ibrahem Mohamed replied: “Please inform me, are you supporting Hemedti? As soon as the war started, you backed Hemetdi and the Rapid Support Forces. Please reply so we can forget the past and start a new page.”

Sawiris replied: “No, we don’t forget the past… Al-Burhan wants to take Al-Bashir’s place and wants the old corrupt regime to continue with Muslim Brotherhood support. The people want civilian rule, and the Rapid Support Forces support the people’s demands… As for the war, the loser in it is the oppressed people.”

Sawiris retweeted a tweet from the account of Amjad Hashim, in which it said: “You’re speaking the truth… Al-Burhan is relying on remnants of the previous Islamic regime to solidify his rule, and Hemedti, the leader of the militias, confronts Al-Burhan’s plan. Hemedti realized the Burhan’s scheme and confronted it after Al-Burhan didn’t participate in the failed October 25 coup that thwarted the civilian democratic transition.”
