Sudan: Electricity crisis worsens after sector workers resume strike
Electricity workers have continued their pressuring of the Ministry of Finance into implementing proposed salary structure.
Citizens in the Sudanese capital complained of a significant increase in the frequency of electricity cuts, in conjunction with the return of the electric sector’s workers strike.
The workers resumed their strike after the Ministry of Finance agreed on scheduling the salary structure, proposed by them, within a period of 12 months.
Journalists confirmed that the cuts on Monday affected hospitals and sovereign facilities, including the presidential palace.
Meanwhile, citizens complained that they were without electricity in their homes for more than 12 hours.
Emergency workers refused to respond to reports of service outages due to technical problems.
Electricity sector workers currently on strike have threatened to reduce shut off electricity completely if their demands were not met.
