Transformation in Sudan Moves Slowly; Persecution Remains

The United States recently praised Sudan’s transitional government for its financial transparency. Officials published their spending budgets within three months of enactment. Sudan’s inflation rate soared past 400-percent last month; a 33-percent increase from May.

“They (Sudan’s transitional government) are trying to get out from under debt and incredible inflation, and COVID, and all of those things, so that they can get some international involvement,” a believer we’ll call Cliff* says.

“They’re trying to put a new face on Sudan.”

Old habits die hard, though. Take persecution, for example.

Earlier this month, gunmen attacked a Christian government worker and threatened to kill him. “If I understand it correctly, he was part of a committee set up to return property that was illegally seized under the previous Bashir government,” Cliff says.

“It wasn’t just that he was an independent person advocating for it. He was part of the group trying to facilitate that happening.”
