passed through what's left of the transitional period to a civilian democratic country. while aboard me colon my, the buck graham and i'm willing to go now with donald mckinney and, and what are the among military and civilian leaders have been sharing power since it also cracked. omar bashir was ousted in 2090 after 30 years and charge for elections are currently planned for july, boots with ham, dock gone, and stew, done roiled by and rest. the road to democracy looks increasingly fragile. on that subject let's brienne colored cohere managing director of inside strategy partners in car tomorrow. welcome to w news. a y did a ham dock stepped down. now i think he came to realize just how unpopular his de agreement with were hon on the

just oriented around, you know, political structures. i'm, we're will be lots of fighting over who gets what position glucose from inside structure to partners and cut them. thank you very much for your insight. inc. police in south africa. say they have arrested a man in connection with a devastating fire about the country's parliament building. the suspect is due to appear in court later this week. the blaze which took several hours to bring under control got at the historic chamber of the national assembly in cape town. the fire had already been burning for hours when security guards discovered it at around 6 in the morning. fire creams raced to the scene, but were unable to stop the flames from spreading to the national assembly building where south africa's parliaments it. that is a very sad day for our democracy because parliament is the home of our democracy.
