1:04 pm
betrayed the revolution. his removal, as far as they're concerned, was the last fig leaf that was covering this regime and what remains is a full fledged military military dictatorship. so i think the international community will now will likely increases pressure on the military regime with the hope of heating the demands of the city streets and installing a pull civilian rule demonstrations against the military and the deal have signed with them have led to the killings of dozens of protesters by police insecurity forces. ham duke has been unable to stop the violence or install a government that would remove military interference. and now it seems he is left with no choice but to concede defeat and resign hebrew morgan august 0. well let's go live now to correspond mohammed val, whose income teams, while mom at this development was widely anticipated. what's the mood not happened?
1:05 pm
yeah, nick, we have a few reactions from different political players in the country. and the most important one that everyone is expecting, or everyone is interested in, is how those will protest every day on the street. how do they see this as a nation? i talked to them this morning and they told me that it doesn't change much for them . it even at probably means more, more momentum for them and more support for them. industries in the country, in the public opinion. they said that during the last couple of weeks, some of them where saying that, why don't we give a child to the handbook? why they don't give a chance to his political agreement between him and the military. probably this will be the key to the solution and so on. so they were not 100 percent united during the last couple of weeks because of the situation now. they said there is no reason why they shouldn't be united, and those who were lukewarm about the continuation of the protest are going to join
1:06 pm
in full force starting today. they are planning a protest tomorrow, which was not scheduled. it's going to go to take place in on demand, and that means that they see that this is a charles for them to make their voice louder about what the situation and about their opposition to the continuation of the military in power. they are not ready to negotiate with anyone. they are not ready to compromise. and that's different from the other players in the, in the political spectrum they, the, the party, for instance, the various other entities in the political at game are trying to create a kind of consensus. 3, trying to talk to all sides. they are calling for negotiations or calling on the military to sit with the civilians and try to find a solution. but the street itself, if the street means the protesters is completely disconnected from this process,
1:07 pm
and this is, this makes it interesting. now to, i'm in the fear of more polarization. the fear of all the players being taken to side, there is no middle ground right now. because of the law presented that middle ground, but there is no one in his place and no one is, i mean there is no clarity about who can replace him. somebody who can, who can continue with that piece, make an effort that he was leading at the same time, continue to be able to talk to foreign partners to help. so then that was the plan of the $100.00. he said this, he failed and continue with be continuing it. but there is no way to replace right now and that creates a lot of concern about what's next for. so them are like, so that's i'm, i haven't the income to my estate culture. we can speak to them, but i don't who's chair of the political bureau for the democratic line to show social justice and joined his life from the capital. we knew this was coming,

1:17 pm
example of what paging is trying to do to ease frustrations due to the inconveniences caused by these outbreaks. the city of she, 13000000 people, is the population. all of them now are under severe lockdown, unable to even leave their homes. and this lockdown is entering its 3rd week now. and there are been many complaints that because of this locked on, many residents are not able to access fresh food or other daily necessities. i was unclear so far how long this locked on will continue. but authorities that under extreme pressure to get the case numbers down before the beginning of the beijing winter olympics in february. so far since the beginning of december, that have been in total more than $1600.00 cases. they're covered cases of the delta variant. and the latest figure reported on monday was 60 cases added to that number. the restrictions served started in the philippine capital as daily cove at 19 cases continued to riser in person classes, contacts, bolts,

1:19 pm

the military underestimate the consequences of its actions. this is, i don't know, this vacuum is likely to cause divisions along. this is william good for a long i don't believe that he planned for as of yesterday night. there are some serious, very agreements among the military officers, especially among the york that was holding the country. it seems that they have a consequences of the good italian self and they feel that they are now being secluded from international support from national and support. so in the coming few days, we are likely to see some these agreements among the media platform, but most likely that is going to be
1:35 pm
a unanimous agreement on the fact that it has to be a complete tcp abroad. and there is no room for the court of any ship in the city any more. a man is gee to appear in court in cape town on tuesday, charged with arson and damaging state property. detained inside south africa's parliament on sunday, as a building was badly damaged by a large fire. chilling wolf is more now from cape town, a national monument and symbol of south african democracy. up in flames. a fire tor through cape towns, buildings of parliament, sundays severely damaging the offices of south africa's ruling party and later spreading to the national assembly, south african president, several ram, oppose at calling it a devastating event. but insisting that the work of parliament must go on my chest . it is disappointing, devastating. there is something that we can be grateful for. for these men and
