Al-Bashir’s previous government had promised residents to solve the problem repeatedly and in a semi-annual form, but it did not, and a project he had set up to transport water through pipes from the Atbara River hundreds of miles away had faced funding problems and corruption cases to fail like other projects promised by the previous government.
