Every cloud has a silver lining “goes an English adage”

April 2, 2017 (SSB) — Our country, blessed with abundant natural resources, has been badly and intentionally plunged into a senseless, destructive and escalating conflict for over 3 and half years now. The crisis which started as a power struggle/wrangle in their own house has put the country into the state of uncertainty and later ethnicised.
Many precious lives and properties including the minimal infrastructures put in place are devastated. Some of our major towns of South Sudan have been completely destroyed and are now ghost towns. Several attempts to end this civil strife remain futile. The 2015 ARCISS which is/was believed to have been a way out and forward, in the words of the international community, is partially being implemented or that there is no progress in the implementation process.
