Tabit in Tawila locality, North Darfur, has been experiencing an acute water shortage after militiamen stole two of the three engines required to bump water from the wells.

The only remaining engine is now operated by government forces, but this has caused water prices to rise sharply.

One of the residents of Tabit told Radio Dabanga that the shortage is so acute that some families have considered leaving the area and moving to Shangil Tobaya or Zamzam.

The residents of Tabit appealed to the Governor of North Darfur, the Tawila Commissioner, and Unamid to immediately intervene to resolve the water problem.
