Let’s look at South Sudan

My posts are published now on ‘Africa on the Blog’.

On 27 July 2016, a post was published entitled ‘Let’s look at South Sudan‘. In it, I look at the sad situation of South Sudan. I point out that the Dinka and Nuer languages are both part of the Kitara dialect continuum. However, this is clearly no guarantee that brothers won’t kill each other.

I point out the analogy with the war in Bosnia in the 1990’s and suggest that a similar solution might be needed: one in which the international community steps in not only militarily, but also in terms of civil administration, so that effectively the country is put under Trusteeship. This is what has happened in Bosnia and I support the call of others for the same. That way, perhaps the situation five years of now will be a little more hopeful.
