Road between Khartoum and Darfur unfinished, NCP requests money back
Emad Bushra, parliament member of the National Congress Party (NCP), requested that the Shirian Al Shimal company returns the money and rights it received to construct the Al Ingaz Algarbi Road. This road connects Khartoum and Darfur but gaps were found in different segments of it.
According to Bushra, the money should be returned to Sudan's Ministry of Roads and Bridges. This will enable the ministry to seek for other companies that can construct the Al Ingaz Algarbi, Nyala Al Fasher and Nyala Kass streets, segments of the Al Ingaz Algarbi Road. Bushra said in a press release that during a tour to the area they found large gaps in these segments and urgently invited the federal government to raise funds to construct these streets. Shirian Al Shimal received funds in the past few years for the construction of the Al Ingaz Algarbi Road.
During a Darfur People Conference, the company's chairman, Al Haj Atta Al Manan, suggested the Darfuri could construct 100km of the road in the region and they would be payed from the company's fund. In addition, Shirian Al Shimal would provide 200 billion Sudanese pounds for charity projects in Darfur. These suggestions were denied by community leaders and participants of the conference.
