Residents of Babanusa in West Kordofan staged a protest in the town on Sunday, calling for improved services in the state, especially roads, agriculture, and electricity to be upgraded. They also call for sustainable forestry management.
The protestors handed a memorandum to the central government demanding that the road between Babanusa and El Fula be completed.
The memorandum urges veterinary services to be upgraded, and for strict laws to be enacted to resolve any potential dispute between farmers and pastoralists.
The protestors further called for development of the agriculture in the region by introducing modern technologies and mechanised agriculture.
Finally, the memo called for a new law to prevent the over-cutting of forests. The forests management is to be transferred to the local authorities at state level, rather than centralised federal authorities.
