South Sudan gained independence from the Republic of Sudan in 2011. In this episode, we discuss South Sudan’s arduous road having struggled through two civil wars spanning over 20 years. South Sudan’s current state of affairs has very much been influenced by its relationship with the Republic of Sudan, in particular, conflict over regional borders and oil revenue.
