October 7, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - The Sudanese pound’s exchange rate hit a new low against foreign currencies on Sunday after some respite over the past weeks, after U.S. refusal to delist Sudan from terror blacklist

The USD selling price jumped to 71.5 pounds and the purchase to 70.5 compared to 69 pounds to sell and 68 pounds to buy during the past week. Also, the Saudi riyal reached 18.75 pounds and the UAE dirham jumped to 19 pounds.

During the past weeks, Dollar selling prices by bank checks corresponded to cash sales due to the availability of cash in banks and ATMs, prompting many operators to provide liquidity to banks.

Traders in the parallel (black) market who spoke to Sudan Tribune attributed the rise in foreign exchange prices to weak supply in the market against rising demand. Also, they pointed to the government inability to provide foreign currencies for import purposes so far.

“Major traders have lowered currency rates over the past few days because they expect concrete changes to follow Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok’s visit to New York and Paris,” a trader said.

"But that did not happen and the demand for foreign exchange increased," he stressed.

During a recent visit to New York, Hamdok called for his country removal from the list of state sponsors of terrorism but US officials dashed his hope for quick removal from the blacklist.

    Do the losers know that falling pounds value doesn’t mean anything? Didn’t you cloned arabs of North Sudan let us use the ’dinar?’ a money that was used by the ’Romans and us’ in today’s Jerusalem including our Egypt? The Biblical Jesus Christ was even ’betrayed’ by one of his disciple, Judas Iscariot with 30 silver coins of ’dinarions’. Fellows, be very careful.>>>>

                      The ’Masaais and Kelenjins’ were bullied by the ’Indians’, they were even called ’indented slaves’. Indians are the most poorest criminals on earth than Africans. Their *Mahatma Gandhi* even call the Bantuses in South Africa, the "Kaffirs". I don’t know whether *Mahatma Gandhi* knows what he was talking about? We don’t consider Indians anyone, fellows, watch this space.>>>>
