Sudan: Port Sudan's Water Shortage Worsening

Port Sudan — Prices for drinking water are soaring amid an acute drinking water shortage in Port Sudan.

Yesterday Sheba Dirar, the head of the National Beja Congress, told Radio Dabanga that the residents are fed-up with practices of the state government, headed by Governor Ali Hamid.

He said that "Port Sudan is lacking drinking water amid rise of food prices. Water is available only in government facilities".
