Hundreds of people demonstrated in Khartoum this Wednesday against the worsening economic situation in Sudan, demanding the withdrawal of the government of Abdullah Hamdok, who is accused of not having better conditions in the country in the year he was in office.
According to the Sudan Tribune, security forces used tear gas to prevent demonstrators chanting anti-government and anti-economic crisis slogans from the Council of Ministers headquarters.
According to Radio Dabanga, the country has faced a shortage of bread and fuel for the second week in a row, resulting in long queues among citizens.
The shortage of bread is due to the government failing to pay its debts to the country’s mills, which has resulted in a shortage of bakeries for the past two weeks. In addition, the national currency continues to depreciate against the dollar, which affects the import of flour.
