Protests erupted again in Khartoum, and also in eastern Sudan's El Gedaref, against the ongoing drinking water crises and power cuts in both cities.

In the Sudanese capital, angry residents of Abu Saad blocked the district’s main street on Monday, condemning the continuing shortage of drinking water and electricity outages.

The town of El Gedaref witnessed several demonstrations against water outages, occurring since more than five months, and the scarcity of petrol.

People living in El Nazir Bakar, El abbasiya, Kerfes, and Borno districts took to the streets, and formed a mass rally demanding the uninterrupted provision of water and fuel.
