S. Darfur traders protest against deteriorating security in the capital

March 4 - 2013 NYALA

The kidnapping of a businessman, deteriorating security situation and low detention rates led traders to stage a demonstration outside the office of the Chamber of Commerce in Nyala, South Darfur's capital, on Saturday.

One of the traders told Radio Dabanga they were questioning the Chamber of Commerce about repeated looting and kidnapping they are often vulnerable to. They gave the institution 48 hours to respond to their inquiries.

Representatives of the Chamber of Commerce announced they would lodge on Sunday a “strongly worded” memorandum to South Darfur’s Governor Hammad Ismail about the situation.
