(0:17:00) After a long history of violence and injustice to the Sudanese people at the hands of the Al-Bashir government’s severe military rule and conflict, a new government has begun to establish itself. Today, PhD candidate for Middle Eastern Studies at Exeter University, Jihad Mashamoun joins us to discuss the new government, the current political struggles and how we can expect to see Sudan progress.
