Shortages of fuel caused most workers to go to their work on foot in Kadugli, capital of South Kordofan, yesterday. People still have to queue in front of bakeries in the country.

An employee told Radio Dabanga from Kadugli that the fuel crisis started three days ago, but worsened yesterday.

Most employees and owners of private vehicles had to walk to their workplaces because there was no petrol and diesel.


People are still forced to line up in front of bakeries in Khartoum and many other Sudanese cities. Shortages of flour caused many bakeries to close down.

The Central Flour Chamber announced that the flour production of mills decreased with 40 per cent.

People in Nyala, capital of South Darfur, told Radio Dabanga that the price of bread is soaring. A loaf of bread was sold for five Pounds in some districts. In some villages bread was so scarce that people resorted to other foods.


Radio Dabanga’s editorial independence means that we can continue to provide factual updates about political developments to Sudanese and international actors, educate people about how to avoid outbreaks of infectious diseases, and provide a window to the world for those in all corners of Sudan. Support Radio Dabanga for as little as €2.50, the equivalent of a cup of coffee.
