Mawaheb Magzoub

Name: Mawaheb Magzoub

Position: Spokesperson of the Unionist Movement

Background

The Unionist Movement is a faction of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) which opposed to the decision of its leader Mohamed Osman Al-Mirghani to join a coalition government led by ruling Sudan’s National Congress Party (NCP) after the independence of South Sudan in July 2011.

They are now member of the opposition alliance National Consensus Forces (NCF) and signed a memorandum of understanding in October 2012 with the rebel alliance of the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF).

The house of the last Unionist leader and first Sudanese Prime Minister Mohamed Ismail Al-Azhary is in Omdurman next to the bridge to North Khartoum.

Al-Azhari raised Sudan’s flag on 1 January 1956 marking the end of the British- Egyptian presence in the country. He died several days after his arrest by Gaffar Nimeiri, a military general who ruled the country from 1969 to 1985 after a coup d’état.
