In 2012, I wrote about Al-Bashir: Sudan: divide and rule, the winning strategy. A year before that, as South Sudan celebrated its independence, I was carefully optimistic in South Sudan: Render unto southern Sudanese that which is theirs. And in December last year, on the beginning of the South Sudan civil war, I paraphrased an article by Daniel Howden published on The Guardian, in South Sudan: how we all fell for the ‘big lie’.
Needless to say the situation is dire and complicated in South Sudan right now. To better understand what is happening, I selected some posts I think are worth reading. Starting with The Sudans: after the divide Series published on The Guardian, and a must-read article by
@JamesCopnall : South Sudan conflict: What chance of peace?
Two other articles will allow you to better understand the situation : ‘South Sudan at war: political failures, public expectations and how to bring peace’ by Peter Biar Ajak, founder and director of the Centre for Strategic Analysis and Research (C-SAR) and Co-Country Director for International Growth Centre (IGC) South Sudan. And ‘Civil society: power sharing dispute means “little hope” for peace‘ via Radio Tamazuj @RadioTamazuj.
