About our South Sudan news

Latest news on South Sudan, providing comprehensive coverage of politics, security, humanitarian issues, development, and other stories impacting the world's newest nation.

Officially known as the Republic of South Sudan, this East-Central African country gained independence from Sudan in 2011 after a long struggle, becoming the UN's 193rd member state. With a population of around 11 million, South Sudan is a diverse nation with over 60 indigenous ethnic groups, the largest being the Dinka, Nuer and Azande.

Despite initial optimism following independence, South Sudan has faced significant challenges. A political power struggle erupted into a civil war in 2013, leading to widespread violence, human rights abuses, and displacement. A peace agreement was signed in 2018 to end the 5-year conflict that killed an estimated 400,000 people. In 2020, President Salva Kiir Mayardit and opposition leader Riek Machar formed a unity government to lead the country's transition.

Our feed covers the human impact of the conflict, including refugee crises, food insecurity, and rebuilding efforts. Over 4 million people remain displaced and 7 million need humanitarian assistance. We highlight the work of aid agencies, UN missions, and local initiatives to support communities and foster reconciliation.

As one of the world's poorest countries, South Sudan's path to stability depends on addressing root causes of conflict and developing its potential. We track efforts to resolve political and ethnic tensions, reform institutions, protect human rights and press freedoms, and stimulate the oil-dependent economy. The country joined the East African Community in 2016, seeking regional integration.

This dedicated NewsNow feed aims to provide impartial, fact-based coverage to inform international audiences about developments in South Sudan. Drawing upon a range of trusted media sources, we strive to offer a comprehensive, nuanced view of this young nation as it navigates a critical juncture in its history.
