President Omar al-Bashir vowed Monday to launch a "war on corruption" in a bid to revive Sudan's ailing economy and curb food price rises. In a strongly worded address to Parliament, Bashir said a nexus between foreign currency traders, bankers and smugglers had damaged the economy, already weakened by U.S. sanctions, conflicts and loss of oil revenues since a north-south split in 2011 .For decades the Sudanese economy suffered from U.S. trade sanctions that were lifted on Oct. 12 .Sudan's economy was also hit by the loss of 75 percent of oil earnings following the north-south split, in turn impacting the country's key source of foreign currency used for food and other imports.
