Residents of El Matama locality in the northern Sudanese River Nile state complain about the sale of vast tracts of their lands by Sudanese authorities to a Syrian investor.

“The authorities sold 225,000 acres of farmlands in Wad El Habashi, Wad Hamed, and Hajar El Teir for $5 per acre, to be paid over a period of 99 years,” one of the affected told Dabanga from Wad El Habashi.

“We have not been offered any compensation, also not for the damage to our land left to us, caused by the construction of a canal for the irrigation of the land sold to the investor.”

He appealed to the governor of the Nile River and the Presidency to intervene, and return their lands to them.
