The population of Sudari and surroundings in North Kordofan are suffering from a severe shortage of drinking water since more than three weeks.

“This Tuesday, not a drop of water was to be found in the entire area,” an angry resident of Sudari told Radio Dabanga.

He attributed the crisis to the break-down of the pumps at the only water well in the area.

The people of Sudari have twice staged a protest against the water outages during the past weeks, “to no avail”, he said, accusing the North Kordofan government of “inertia”.
