Bashir’s press secretary, Emad Sid Ahmed, said in a statement to official news agency (SUNA) that Bashir is now in a good condition and recovering well after the surgical operation, which was conducted by a Sudanese medical team.

The 70-year-old president underwent throat surgery in Qatar more than a year-and-a-half ago and another one a few months afterwards in Saudi Arabia.

A year ago, he secretly flew again to Saudi Arabia again for a medical checkup, according to a presidential source at the time.

Bashir’s brother, Abdullahi al-Bashir, a physician, later admitted that his younger sibling was suffering from a throat tumour, but insisted that medical tests proved that the swelling is benign.

The president was reportedly advised at the time by doctors to cut his public appearances and speeches.
