Several protestors were injured when Sudanese police broke-up a rally in El Hasaheisa district in El Gezira yesterday.

The demonstrators demanded the dismissal of the governor of El Gezira and the commissioner of the locality.

The rally, organised by the resistance committees in El Hasaheisa, took place in front of the locality offices.

The resistance committees of El Kalakla in Khartoum also staged a march yesterday demanding the dismissal of the acting commissioner of the locality.

The officials were appointed during the regime of President Omar Al Bashir ousted on April 11, or by the Transitional Military Council that ruled the country until a Sovereign Council and a civilian-led government was formed in August and September. Many people hold them responsible for bad governance and corruption in the country.
