On Friday, hundreds of people protested after Friday prayers, against the scarcity of bread, fuel crisis, the widespread corruption, as well as human rights violations in Kireinek, Habila, and Kendebe in West Darfur.

The protestors held banners saying: “No more corruption”, and called for the provision of bread and fuel. They demand the dismissal of the state governor.

A source explained to Radio Dabanga that they are protesting against the ongoing violence, corruption as well as the high prices of commodities in the state.

A new demonstration is planned against the violence and corruption in West Darfur on Monday.

On December 8, Radio Dabanga reported about the ongoing violence in Darfur that people staged a protest against the increasing violence in Um Dukhun in Central Darfur, after a farmer was killed and several others were injured in the neiighbourhood.
