In a statement seen by Sudan Tribune, the NCF urged Khartoum residents to take to streets to demand their basic rights to life and descent living, pointing they have long suffered from the worsening crises.

The statement pointed to the severe water crisis besides the accumulation of waste in most of the localities of the capital, saying the state government failed to tackle these unprecedented crises.

It further mentioned the worsening transportation crisis coupled with undeclared increases in tariffs, saying the health and education sectors have almost collapsed.

The statement also pointed the manipulation in the price, weight and quality of the bread in the absence of the government control.

It called on the residents to protest peacefully to grab their legitimate rights.
NCF, which gathers mainly center-left, and leftist parties including Sudanese Communist Party, a faction of the Democratic Unionist Party, some national Arab groups, is Sudan’s major internal opposition force.
