Sudan: Darfur Students Protest Lack of Transport

Nyala — On Monday, the students of the University of Nyala staged a protest rally in front of the government administration headquarters against the transportation crisis in the capital of South Darfur.

The protestors claim that a number of the students were unable to sit for their exams because of the lack of transportation. Some of the students only arrive at the university when lectures are already over.

The protestors further demand the allocation of a transport line to the university and utilization of the available staff's transport vehicles for transporting the students.
