The Sudanese authorities have ordered the director of the National Television and Radio Corporation to stop broadcasting the radio series Beit El Jalous.

Screenwriter and psychologist Ali Baldo accused prominent businessmen and media tycoons of instigating government officials to stop the series that reportedly criticises suspected links between power, wealth, and the media.

The Sudanese radio began broadcasting the series, said to be addressing the spread of corruption and nepotism in the country, during the current fasting month of Ramadan.
