Well 80% of the cars on Khartoum's streets were purchased in the last decade, meaning that the cities cars are mainly new, the fact that you can't see many old cars tells you how few cars there were in the 90's .

People presume that Northern Sudan is a desert but only the two Northern States have a desert climate. Khartoum actually used to be a forest before, it was cut down to make way for the city.
However Omdurman across the Nile has a hard rock surface unsuitable for plants, the only reason it developed in to a settlement was because the Mahadi forces used it as a base in the siege of Khartoum.

Kuwait donates 500 mln dollars for Sudan development
(AFP) – 1 hour ago
KUWAIT CITY — Kuwait has donated 500 million dollars for the development of east Sudan, the Gulf state's foreign minister said Wednesday at the start of an international conference for donors and investors.
"I am pleased to announce the donation by the state of Kuwait of 500 million dollars for east Sudan development," Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammad al-Sabah announced at the opening ceremony.
Sheikh Mohammad said 450 million dollars would be in the form of development projects to be carried out by the state-run Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development and the remaining 50 million dollars as a grant for social projects.

people who complain about Sudan's close relations to the Middle East should take in to account the investment and Aid provided by these Countries to Sudan.

Its worth pointing out that the Rashayda Arabs of Eastern Sudan originated from Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

Sudan Raises More Than $1 Billion to Develop East of Country
Sudan has received pledges for more than $1 billion to help develop the impoverished east of the country, said Mustafa Mohammed Osman, an adviser to the president.

The money is in addition to the $1.57 billion already promised by Sudan’s government, Osman told reporters at a conference in Kuwait City.

Kuwait has pledged $500 million, its Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed Al-Sabah said today, while his counterpart in Iran, Manouchehr Mottaki, promised $200 million. Kuwait will provide $450 million for infrastructure projects and the rest as grants through the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development, Al-Sabah told the conference.

Sudan aims to attract foreign investment worth $2 billion at the two-day conference, presidential adviser Mostafa Osman Ismail said on Nov. 28. In March, the Organization of the Islamic Conference raised $850 million of a targeted $2 billion for development in western Sudan.

Who's on the photo?

Yeah being in the Arab league has it's benefits. It's good that they are investing and not handling over a big fat cheque.

Why are they only developing the "east of country" though?

The previous Arab League Donor conference was for Darfur were Qatar alone pledged $1 billion, the Arab league fund also provides a monthly $12 million for Darfur. As for the North and central Sudan they are relatively well developed and these regions receive the bulk of Arab investment in Sudan Which Since 2005 amounted to over $30 billion.
That s why it mystifies me when Kenyans suggest that we should be jealous that after 2011 the South will join EAC a region with an annual GDP output of less than $60 billion I think we can live with out the flood of Burundian investment
