MUSCAT, Oman, March 8 (UPI) — Protesters in Oman said they plan to continue their peaceful demonstrations despite the major cabinet reshuffle announced by Sultan Qaboos Bin Saeed.

A spokesman for the protesters told Gulf News the demonstrations would continue because the group has wider goals.

“We are really very thankful to His Majesty Sultan Qaboos for making changes to the cabinet and removing some corrupt names,” said Ahmad al Sejawi. “We want to make sure by changing the constitution that there’s no room for any corruption.”

Sejawi was among some 2,000 demonstrators who gathered outside the Shura Council office in Muscat Monday and cheered news of the cabinet reshuffle.

He said two bulls would be sacrificed Tuesday to celebrate the sacking of the ministers.
