Medical specialists in El Nahud in Sudan’s West Kordofan have announced a strike in hospitals and private clinics in protest against the locality commissioner’s forcible eviction of specialist Dr Mohamed El Amin from his house and clinic.
A healthcare source told Radio Dabanga that Dr El Amin is seen as one of the most respected, oldest and greatest specialists in the town.
He added that the evacuation from his house owned by the state Health Ministry and his clinic was a clear violation by the locality commissioner, an outright insult to the medical profession and a foreboding of the future of health work in the state.
