1985: Nimeiri Ousted in the Sudan

General Nimeiri was ousted in the Sudan after serving as head of government since 1969. Nimeiri fought to suppress a rebellion in the non-Muslim south.

He imposed Islamic law, but lost almost all support. In April, a military revolt led by Defense Minister Abdel Raham Siwar el-Dahab removed Nimeiri from power. (History Central)
