October 10, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - Sudan’s inflation rate for September slightly increased to 53.35% in urban areas compared to 53.13 in August 2019, the official statistics agency said on Thursday.

The Central Bureau of Statistics attributed the reasons for this slight increase to the stability of prices of food and beverage and the decline in meat prices during the last month.

The statement pointed out that the rate of inflation in urban areas during September reached 51.3%, compared to 50.39% last August.

For its part, the rate of inflation in rural areas reached 54.98%, according to the agency.

Inflation measured by consumer price index (CPI) which is defined as the change in the prices of a basket of goods and services that are purchased by specific groups of households.

In a related development, the US dollar remained stable against the Sudanese pound as the USD buying rate remained at 70 and the selling rate at 71 pounds.

Traders and retail clients consumers are reluctant to sell foreign currencies expecting an increase in the exchange rate in the coming days, especially as the government failed to get foreign financial assistance so far and nothing on the horizon as well.

Ahmed Al-Hadi, a dealer told Sudan Tribune that the sale of foreign currencies is currently very weak and confined to students travelling abroad or families that support their sons and girls studying in foreign universities, in addition to some employees working in international institutions and companies.

      don’t consider you clones anyone? We are going to see how the Abeshas (so-called ethiopians) would go with their Abiye Ahmed 1 million dollars of ’secret societies’ so-called "peace prize" award. I hope they creeps would bring their ’prostitutes’ into our country with their so-called "Africa Unity and regional integration" business bullshit.>>>>

        Probably the Mr. Abiye Ahmed would cut our ’Nuers’ of our Gambella region a piece of that so-called ’peace prize’. But the Abesha prostitutes have shown our country and our people their evil teeth. And we are going to show the prostitutes back to Yemen where the evils belong. ’Our Nuer ke nyantoc’ with their believe in fools and call themselves anyone over the Dinkas/Jiengs of the Sudan has>>>>

          been ’hijacked’ by the evils like Abeshas (so-called ethiopians), their evil white Americans, English people, their UN, their sleazy NGOs, their former slaves from West Africa or their Bantuses’. Who says these vermin are ’ETHIOPIANS’?. Our Anyuaks people are the ones who own our Gambella region. Our Nuer ke nyantoc losers only own ’Itang, Tharpam and Bilpam’ and nothing else>>>>

            The Abeshas the (so-called ethiopians) have chase away the Anyuak people in their own land in the Gambella region and that land is now use to ’grow food’ consumption in gulf Arab states and some other countries in Asia or Europe. The farm was even ’financed’ by the so-called ’World bank and IMF’. But you ask our ’Nuer ke nyantoc’ of ’Itang, Tharpam and Bilpam’ of what do they get from>>>

              from the ’world bank’ financed in the Gambella by the ’the so-called world bank?’ They would even blame the ’Dinkas/Jaangs’. Our Nuers ke nyantoc, we are going to bomb our enemies out of our country once and for all.>>>

                Reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. There is no more war in South Sudan, the Nuers are honestly asked to get out of these ’filthy UN POC sites, and farm their lands’. Your Riek Machar would not come to South Sudan with free money and distribute it to you losers. Did You lowly informed fools say that the Nuers are the "Israelis in Africa"? My arse>>>

                  Your so-called israelis are our *chief enemies* with their evil white Americans, English people, Abeshas (so-called ethiopians), our cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan, their gulf arab states’ financiers and even some of their Bantuses in South Africa, Rwanda and Kenya. But the evils are going to be bombed to near extinction. The losers like Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta, Raila Odinga and other scrounger>

                    in between thought they would negotiated their evil selves into our country and over our people again through their ’cheap and dirty intrigues’ of their so-called "Africa unity and regional integration" piece of trash. The scroungers in Kenya, Abesh (so-called ethiopia), Rwanda, our cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan don’t have enough food in their damn countries>>>

                      But they are feed the genetically modified ’maizes (corns) or sorghum’ grown and feed to cattle in the US and other countries. The European union (EU) don’t even buy genetically modified food (GMF) from the US. Here in South Sudan, the so-called UN NEW ORDER GOVERNMENT was to be ’started’ here in South Sudan. But we won’t let it happen. War is here fools>>>
