December 31st 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – Sudanese government on Sunday seized schools belonging to Dawaa al-Islamia, an Islamic organization affiliated to the former regime of ousted president Omar al-Bashir according to a Sudanese official quoted by Sudan Tribune.

The Humanitarian Aid Commission took control of the administrative offices of the schools of the African Council for Private Education (AFPE) which is owned by the Islamic Call Organization or Dawaa al-Islamia.

The measure to seize the schools came as a consequence of a recent law passed by Sudan’s ruling coalition to dismantle the former regime’s National Congress Party which has been accused of Islamizing the country.

In total, 35 schools and 19 kindergartens in the states of Khartoum, Gezira, Gedaref, Kassala, and the Red Sea, were seized as well as some overseas.
