Thank you for letting us know. Can you please cite a government publication or a newspaper argument that specifies this change? 
Preferably with a URL, so that others can read it. Although English publications are preferred, Arabic is also fine.

When exactly will the change occur? What time of day?

Is the change intended to be permanent?

Does the change affect all of Sudan, or only some regions? If so, which regions?
