Kidney patients in North Kordofan staged a sit-in in El Obeid on Sunday, in front of the town's Dialysis Centre, in protest against delays of dialysis sessions. 

One of the patients told Radio Dabanga that “for more than six months”, the about 150 kidney patients of the centre are suffering from the irregularity of the dialysis sessions.

“Very often, we are waiting in vain for a session and sent home again, because of electricity outages, lack of water, and a defective drainage system”.

He urged the North Kordofan government to “speed up the provision of a generator at the Dialysis Centre, and improve the sewage water draining system, in order to stop the suffering of the kidney patients”.
