NAIROBI, Kenya — Predictions are a mug's game but this one, from veteran Sudanese politician-cum-troublemaker Hassan al-Turabi, might be on the money.
This Reuters article quotes the predictions of the Islamist head of the opposition Popular Congress Party:
"I expect the Sudanese people to stage a revolution and I think this will happen very soon," said Turabi. ...
"I hope it will be a peaceful revolution so we can get a real multi-party parliamentary system," he told reporters.
President Omar al-Bashir is facing an increasingly coordinated armed rebellion along the southern border and is president over a faltering economy and an increasingly restive population in Khartoum.
His time may be coming.
