According to a report of the Sudanese auditor-general, a large number of “financial irregularities” have been found in the East Darfur state accounts. Residents of Tullus locality in South Darfur accuse the director of El Shaheed Organisation of corruption.

The amount of “financial irregularities” found in East Darfur state accounts reach SDG 7.7 billion (*$274 million), the auditor-general said on Monday.

The irregularities consist of undocumented disbursements and the transfer of government entities to private persons.

“People living in the area have already registered their plots,” a listener told Radio Dabanga from Tullus.

The locality’s Land Administration Department acknowledged that 120 housing units have recently been registered in the name of the director of El Shaheed Organisation.
