Sudanese Resistance To Condominium Rule (1900 - 1914)

Authors : Dani Fatiha .

Abstract

It was often thought that the reconquest of the Sudan by the Anglo – Egyptian Army put an end to all forms of opposition and resistance and launched the Sudan into a period of peaceful development and tranquillity, which remained undisturbed until the First World War. This is far from true. In fact, opposition to the new administration sprang up from the very beginning in different quarters and for different reasons and motives. In the first two decades of the Condominium, one may notice that the Sudan Government relied on a reputation for achievement won by guns and reinforced by the absence of serious revolt. Indeed, the determination of the British Government in the Sudan to resort to massive military campaigns was a remarkable feature of its policy towards the peoples of the Sudan.
