Late fuel deliveries paralyse North Kordofan transport

April 26 - 2017 EL OBEID

Callers told Radio Dabanga that the vehicles are standing idle. A litre of petrol costs SDG50 ($7,50) on the black market, if you can get it at all.

The head of the union of business owners in the state, Malik El Shaikh, has attributed the crisis to the non-arrival of fuel supplies from Khartoum.
