N ear one of the primary schools, Hajja Fatima, put her tray on an empty carton, and put the  contents of her  full bag with what the kids like,) some lollipops, goodies, beans, chocolate beans, buckthorn and tasty sandwiches(, she started her day before the morning bell rang.

She said in her voice some tones of regret: The market is stronger than my abilities and capabilities and from this commodity on which the lives of my five sons are based, and whose capital does not exceed (10) thousand pounds, profits do not exceed (4) thousand pounds, this amount was enough to support me and my children for a whole day, may be two days.

Now it is not enough to provide a meal for the children, after I lost my husband, no one helps me to support my children and pay the house rent. Four or five years ago, it was easy for me, but with the new increases in the prices of commodities, I am  unable to manage .

Most of the optimists said that Sudan, with its multiple wealth, would not fail to overcome the shock effects of the secession of its south on July 9, 2011, with all its oil resources, which represented about 70% of the federal state budget.

At that time, alarm bells sounded in the economic institutions, which Al-Bashir translated in the same year (the separation) before the National Congress Party’s Economic Sector Conference, “that his government was working to address the economic effects of the secession of South Sudan, which led to a gap in the public budget, raised the inflation rate, and a deficit Public budget”. The repercussions felt by Al-Bashir’s (government) since the first months of the secession, but the economic institutions were unable to get out of it due to the decline in the trade balance, the increase in the percentage of the unemployed, the increase in the prices of consumer goods, the increase in taxes, the reduction and lack of spending on health and education, effects that are still attached to the Sudanese economy, After more than eleven years…

Despite some aspects of wellness that began to appear on the body of the Sudanese economy, at the beginning of the transitional period, the coup of the twenty-fifth of October cut the way for many decisions and economic formations that began to restore what was destroyed on the ground.

To restore the economic conditions to before the eleventh of April 2019, when the economic deterioration returned due to the coup, and its consequences from the cessation of external support and the impact of the economic and commercial movement..

 And after three years of the revolution, the economic conditions worsened, and the state’s economic circles turned into a mechanism for collecting taxes.

Decline of purchasing power

The decline in purchasing power is one of the crisis surrounding the reality of traders (wholesale and sector), meat trader Youssef Abdullah said that purchasing power has declined significantly in the recent period, and the goods that have decreased by more than half have barely ended, and the profits are not enough for today’s expenses of deportation and taxes.

 In the same direction, (teacher) Abdul-Malik Muhammad, owner of the mobile accessories store and teacher of the basic stage, went on, confirming what his predecessor (Youssef) said, adding: The economic conditions have become very stressful, salaries are not enough, so it was necessary to look for support for the salary, and unfortunately with the economic conditions ,the deteriorating state that the country is going through, the purchasing movement has become weak, and the field of mobile accessories has become far from the interests of the citizen, whose concerns have become related to providing food.

 Abdul-Malik continues: The country is completely closed and there are no solutions that appear on the horizon.

Daily newspaper seller Hammad Moussa complains about the same problem of weak purchasing power, and that people are no longer interested in buying newspapers, perhaps because of the multimedia, or because people are more interested in providing what they eat than reading and following what is happening through the newspapers, in the past I used to sell hundreds of newspapers But the situation is different, and rarely does someone come to buy a newspaper, but the situation is different, and rarely does someone come to buy a newspaper.

The widening circle of poverty Economic

 Researcher Noureddine Abdullah Dhahab said: The rescue failed to maintain and develop economic stability despite its existence for more than thirty years and destroyed the economy by relying on petroleum resources and neglecting other resources, and the treatments it set to increase budget revenues, expand the tax base, reduce government spending, diversify exports and increase export commodities failed. And encouraging investors to attract capital from abroad, which made Sudan suffer from a severe economic crisis, high inflation, scarcity of hard currency, and the Sudanese pound’s exchange rate fell to a horrific level.

Abdullah continues: ” Hamdok government has already started through many economic policies, to get out of the depth of the crisis, to attract external support through the “Thamrat” program, and to sign a number of investment projects, but the coup cut off the way for the civil state, and the economic situation deteriorated for the worse” .

stabilization of the transition period

Experts expected that the government would not be able to meet its internal commitments in the peace agreements towards the reconstruction, rehabilitation and development of the regions of Darfur, South Kordofan, Blue Nile and eastern Sudan, and this would lead to some problems and political tensions or open conflicts. The state may not be able to meet its dues towards external debts, which puts some pressure on it and may deprive it of any new loans, and in the face of such volatile conditions, the state may be forced to increase taxes and customs duties without increasing wages by the same percentage, and this means increasing the burden of living on the middle and weak classes Which has been suffering for years from the hardship of living, and its conditions did not improve even after the influx of oil revenues.

The Sudanese economy crisis

 A broad banner under which millions of stories of poverty that began to spread during the past two years , families in the wind besieged by needs, and salaries that do not protect against poverty. Are the leaders of the coup stronger than what they have made? The former toppled leader used to resort to other countries to help in case of such an economic crisis.  Why  the road seem closed for the Oct 25 coup plotters?
