18 Jan 2022 Sudan

Large majorities of Sudanese see the country as headed in the wrong direction and describe both the national economy and their personal living conditions as bad, according to the latest Afrobarometer survey.

Increasing numbers of citizens are going without basic life necessities, and fewer than half are optimistic that things will get better during the coming year.

Negative assessments of the country’s overall direction increase with individuals’ age and experience of poverty.
