Sudan: State Land Grabs Fuel Sudan’s Crisis

10 Aug

Al-Noor Othman, a farmer in Sudan’s South Kordofan province, was hoping for a good harvest. He had bills to pay.

His father needed glaucoma surgery on his left eye and he was saving up for his wedding.

But there would be no harvest that season. “One cloudy morning [in 2008], I saw some people dividing our farm, claiming that we have not paid the fees of the ownership renewal — even though we inherited the land; we used to live in a part of it and farm the other area. But overnight we became homeless,” Othman told Ayin.
