Haidar Badawi has
been fired a day after he said there is 'no reason to continue hostility
between Sudan and Israel'.
Sudan's foreign ministry spokesman has been dismissed after making
allegedly unauthorised comments indicating there were contacts with Israel
regarding normalising ties.
The development on Wednesday comes after the United Arab Emirates (UAE)
and Israel announced last week that they were to establish diplomatic ties, a
deal denounced by the Palestinians as a "betrayal" of their cause.
The agreement makes the UAE only the third Arab nation - after Egypt and
Jordan - to have full ties with Israel.

I've not in a long time seen Baganda, elite and ordinary, feel so
