Sudan’s central bank has attempted to tighten its control of government finances, despite still not announcing a replacement for its late governor, who died in June.

The Central Bank of Sudan has also tried to cut the amount of currency in circulation as the country’s economic crisis deepens.

A successor to governor Hazem Abdelqader, who died while on a visit to Turkey, has still not been announced, according to statements from his family and Sudan’s president, released on June 17.
