Classic Sudan pictures


I was sent the link to this blog post featuring classic Sudanese pictures via twitter. Its funny and scary to think how we & where we were a mere 4 decades ago to where we are now Omar El Bashir (and the NCP as a whole) Sadig El Mahdi, El Merghani et al – they all have a lot to answer to for the failure, degradation, killings and total collapse of our country.
