FOREIGN: Sudan ‘orders Christian schools to open on Sundays’

Christian schools in Sudan have been told they must adhere to the same working week as rest of the Muslim-majority country, Radio Dabanga reports.

The broadcaster says Sudan’s education ministry has instructed schools to adopt Fridays and Saturdays as their weekend, instead of Saturdays and Sundays.

According to Christians Sunday is the day of rest, whereas in Islam it is Fridays.

Radio Dabanga have published a copy of the official letter on their Facebook page.

The move comes shortly before the worldwide head of the Anglican church, Archbishop Justin Welby, visits Sudan this weekend
