Protesters continued to pile pressure on military transitional council to handover power to civilians even after the ouster of President Omar Al-Bashir, it has emerged.

Sudan Professional Association, a body which organised protests against Africa's strongman Al-Bashir, insisted that the military 'cannot steal revolution from people'.

"We hope that everyone will head immediately to the areas of the sit-in to protect your revolution and your accomplishments," it said in a statement.

But an Army spokesman insisted that the council had no interest to cling to power, adding that they are only waiting for protesters and opposition team to agree on power arrangements.

Also, the army insists that a number of close allies to Al-Bashir, have since been arrested and could face trial over the death of several protesters who are now estimated to be 30.

African Union has chipped into the crisis, siding with people who led the revolution. They insist that the military should handover to power to people within the next 15 days or they stand suspended.

If the junta fails to hand power to civilians within 15 days, the AU will suspend "the participation of the Sudan in all AU's activities until the restoration of constitutional order," the body's Peace and Security Council (PSC) said in a statement.

The AU echoed the protesters' demands, calling the military intervention a "coup d'Etat, which (the PSC) strongly condemns."

In February this year, President Uhuru Kenyatta had sent a goodwill message to Mr Al-Bashir, assuring him that Nairobi would stand with him during the protests. But until now, Uhuru is yet to speak after the ouster of his close ally.
