Sudan's New Dictator

Foreign Policy published on 2 July 2019 a commentary titled "From Camel Herder to Dictator" by Alex de Waal, Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.

General Mohamed Hamdan Dagolo, known as Hemeti and who first saw combat in Sudan's infamous Janjaweed, is commander of Sudan's Rapid Support Forces and deputy chairman of the Transitional Military Council (TMC). The author argues that he is the most powerful man in Sudan today. The struggle in Khartoum is not just between the military and the protest movement. It is also about control of the country from the historic center of power on the Nile River or by the people of the vast and underprivileged peripheries.
