Sudan’s transition: New civilian governors, new challenges

Sudan’s government has sworn in civilian governors, some of whom are women, but they have a long, tough road ahead.

Sudan has replaced the military governors of its 18 states with civilians, including two female governors for the first time.

This comes as the restive Darfur region continues to see violence and loss of life, and not everybody is sure these new governors are cut out for the work ahead of them.
