Red Sea state residents protest week of power outages
On Monday, the residents of Suakin in Red Sea state blocked the main road between Suakin and Port Sudan in protest against the power outages that have lasted for a whole week.
Journalist Osman Hashim told Radio Dabanga that hundreds of Suakin residents blocked the main road linking Suakin with Port Sudan, which led to a complete shutdown of any traffic between Port Sudan and Tokar.
Hashim attributed the protest to a week of power outages. He further highlighted that the protesters held up banners denouncing the local authorities and demanding the dismissal of the local executive director.
