Sudan: Ethiopian Migrants Illegally Given Visas to Enter Sudan

El Galabat — Official sources confirmed to Radio Dabanga that an average of two hundred people are smuggled from Ethiopia to Sudan at El Galabat crossing every day. Half of them are women. The local authorities grant them visas when they cross the border at night.

Some 100 young people cross the border every day, claiming to work in agricultural projects in Sudan, sources told Radio Dabanga. They demand that the Security Committee of El Gedaref state and the Ministry of Interior stop the illegal border crossings and replace the local authorities responsible for the border crossing.

Radio Dabanga's editorial independence means that we can continue to provide factual updates about political developments to Sudanese and international actors, educate people about how to avoid outbreaks of infectious diseases, and provide a window to the world for those in all corners of Sudan. Support Radio Dabanga for as little as €2.50, the equivalent of a cup of coffee.
