Last week’s similar – but smaller protests in Sohar and Muscat – have brought about a cabinet reshuffle today, where Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said changed six ministers. The announcement was made today but that didn’t seem to stop the wave of protesters who have gathered to demand more rights over the previous two days. According to Dhofari Gucci, who blogs from Salalah, the protesters demands are as follows: (1) An end to corruption in the government. (2) More jobs for people in need. (3) increase in salaries for the poor, widows and divorced women. (4) Lowering prices. (5) An end to financial and administrative wasta (influence/nepotism) in the government and private sector. (6) And other demands.
