Flash floods that hit Kabkabiya in North Darfur during the last week have polluted the water wells and caused the flooding of streets and markets.

“The stagnant water in the area and the polluted water in the wells has resulted in the spread of diarrhoea, typhoid, and malaria,” a listener reported to Radio Dabanga from Kabkabiya town.

She criticised the state authorities for failing to purify the wells and drain the pools, and combat the proliferation of flies and mosquitoes.
