Posted: December 31, 2011 by PaanLuel Wël Media Ltd. in Commentary

By The Editorial: 

While much of Asia, Australia, Africa and Europe have already ushered in the New Year 2012; from North America though, it is still about several hours away to the arrival of 2012. And so, in memory of 2011—the year of South Sudan’s independence, we have decided to take a voyage, news-wise, back to the beginning of 2011.  Whereas the year 2011 may have been unkind to some individual South Sudanese people, it is still, however, the overall best year nationally because it marked the birth of a nation of South Sudan. Below are our editorial board top 10 picks for the year 2011 as reported by various news media.

  1.   The Independence of South Sudan, July 9, 2011
  2.  South Sudan admission into the U.N. as the 193rd member
