Khartoum — Student protests opposed to the government austerity plan continued for the second day on Monday in the Sudanese capital Khartoum and its suburbs.
President Omer Al-Bashir announced before the members of the parliament on Monday the main points of drastic measures his government aims to implement.
The austerity plans impact negatively the living conditions of Sudanese who are already affected by the high inflation in the country and the economic crisis hitting the country after the loss of South Sudan oil revenue.
