Sudan warns expelled aid groups against attempting to re-enter

(Sudan Tribune) The Sudanese ruling National Congress Party (NCP) has warned foreign aid groups that were expelled from the country against attempting to enter areas in the Blue Nile and South Kordofan states without Khartoum’s permission.  The NCP’s secretary of organizations, Adil Awad Salman said in press statements that some organizations which had previously worked in Sudan and were booted out due to violating government’s policies are currently trying to sneak into the two states which are the scene of fighting between the army and rebels.  He claimed that these groups are seeking entrance through political bodies and people with connections to rebels in order to collect information on the humanitarian situation in Sudan and fabricate reports with the help of world powers and organizations such as Amnesty International and Transparency International.  Salman added that those reports will be used to place more pressure on Sudan and its foreign policy and said that they will not tolerate violating Sudan’s political and legal sovereignty, describing it as “red line”.

(Radio Dabanga) The arrival of the rainy season has advanced the spread of diseases such as malaria, diarrhoea, urinary retention and conjunctivitis in Kalma camp near to Nyala, capital of South Darfur.  The International Rescue Committee (IRC) Organisation has warned that a shortage of medicine is exacerbating the situation. Dr Saleh Ahmed Ali who works for the IRC in Kalma camp told Radio Dabanga that the spread of these diseases is a result of the deteriorating environmental situation. Especially children are vulnerable, with about 200 visiting the hospital each day.  Cases of diarrhoea, flu, and intestinal pain are the most prevalent.  The Minister of Health for the Darfur Regional Authority, Osman Al Bushra, told Radio Dabanga that the epidemic is spreading due to large numbers of dead livestock at the drinking water resources, especially in Al Sareif Beni Hussein and Jebel ‘Amer in North Darfur.
