Sudanese Crowds Welcome Their Singer Mohammed Wardi
Tens of thousands of Sudanese welcomed Tuesday at Khartoum airport the Sudanese singer Mohammed Wardi upon his return home after a voluntary exile that lasted 13 years.
Wardi who was known with his leftist orientation left the country after the revolution which brought the current Sudanese president Omar Hasan al Bashir to power.
After he had left Sudan, the singer who is now in his seventies moved to Cairo before he went to the United States in 2000 seeking treatment for kidney failure.
The Sudanese papers said Wardi would go back to the United States soon to undergo a surgical operation -- Albawaba.com
