Sudan has signed Thursday a “historic” memorandum of understanding with General Electric, the American group of electricity production. The deal comes after decades of US sanctions, with Sudan since 1993 on the US blacklist of countries that support terrorism. Between 1992 and 1996, the Sudanese dictator Omar-al-Bashir, had indeed welcomed the leader of the jihadist group al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden.

"We have not seen an interaction between such an important company and Sudan for almost thirty years". Sudanese Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok said in a statement released by the official Suna news agency.

Electric Vehicles are Too Damn Expensive

  Electric Vehicles are Too Damn Expensive The average Josephine on the street can’t afford to step into most electric vehicles on sale in the U.S. today, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has admitted. “Our cars are not affordable enough,” Musk said during his second-quarter earnings call in July. “We need to fix that.” Electric cars and crossovers remain far too expensive to be daily commuters for the middle- and working-classes, who in congested urban areas, at least, may be turning to e-bikes instead, an electric segment in which U.S. sales spiked 92-percent in April and 137-percent in May, according to Bicycle Retailer and Industry News.

The memorandum of understanding with General Electric is expected to provide an additional 470 megawatts of electricity to cover the consumption of approximately 600,000 homes. For this, three plants will have to be rehabilitated.

Currently, 67% of the 42 million people in Sudan live without electricity. And those who have access to them often have power cuts that can last up to six hours.

An important step for the economy of Sudan

This agreement should therefore help "to meet energy and health needs across Sudan" welcomed Mai Abdelhalim, general manager for North-East Africa at General Electric.

This project between Khartoum and General Electric is an important first step for the stricken economy of Sudan whose inflation reached 212% in September over one year, a record.

In an attempt to lift American sanctions and encourage investment, the transitional government in power, since the fall of Omar al-Bashir in April 2019, has agreed to pay the indemnities claimed by the Americans from the victims of attacks in several African countries, attacks blamed on Sudan.
