Sudan on verge of medicine, fuel and wheat shortage amid port blockade

Life-saving medicines, fuel and wheat are about to become in short supply across Sudan after the government confirmed ongoing closure of its main port is having an impact

The Sudan government issued a critical warning stating that the country is running short of crucial stocks due to the closure of its main port in the east of the country during ongoing protests.

In recent weeks, demonstrators from the Beja tribe have blocked roads around Port Sudan and forced Red Sea ports to close.

Those that are protesting are doing so against what they say is a lack of political power and poor economic conditions.

In a statement released on Sunday, the government acknowledged eastern Sudan’s “just cause” and stressed the right to peaceful protest, but warned the closure of the port and highways connecting the region with the rest of the country was “harming the interest of all Sudanese”.

Protests took place as the country approaches the day of marking one year since the signing of the Juba agreement between the government and rebel groups that was meant to resolve years-long conflict

But disappointingly, members of the Beja tribe have claimed they have been excluded from it.

Last month, protesters closed two main oil pipelines, including the only one transporting fuel to the capital Khartoum.

The Sudanese government has pledged to work on a political solution to the problems of eastern Sudan and called on the protesters to start a dialogue with the government.
