Sudan’s cash-starved government on Sunday ordered a doubling of the minimum wage after months of rising prices left consumers struggling to make ends meet.
The order by President Omar al-Bashir reversed earlier official rejections of an increase despite inflation which reached 46 percent in November.
“President Bashir gives directive for increasing the minimum wage to 425 pounds (about $61 on the black market) as of January 1,” the official SUNA news agency said in a brief dispatch.
