In the past weeks Sudan has been going through tough times. As protestors fill the streets, most of whom are youths, the protestors have begun rioting
The World Bulletin writer Serhat Orakci says "As much as the reason fuelling the Sudan rebellions appears to be the lifting of government subsidies on petrol, poverty is the real reason." He states "Sudan has still not been able to pull itself together since the economic crisis of 2011."
"Having lost most of its income from petrol, the country has been unable to find a suitable alternative to the natural resource,"Orakci says and adds: "Money that should be invested in education and healthcare is being spent on the military." Pointing out the damage by the embargo that has been enforced by the west to the country's economy, Orakci believes these protest will not go away even "the government simply retract its decision" unless the real issues remain unanswered.Last Mod: 28 Eylül 2013, 16:25
