Sudan uses Eastern Africa Time EAT. EAT is UTC +0300. Sudan’s latitude and longitude is 15° 00' N and 30° 00' E. Therefore geographically EAT is the wrong time zone for Sudan. Time in Sudan should be two hours ahead of UTC instead of three. Because of its low latitude Sudan has no use for daylight savings time.
