South Sudan refugees sceptical of new peace deal

South Sudan refugees sceptical of new peace deal

When South Sudan became an independent nation more than seven years ago, there were high hopes for the oil-rich state, but the country collapsed into a civil war shortly thereafter.

A new peace deal signed in September should be bringing hope to the millions – more than a quarter of the population – that have been displaced.

But the complex deal appears unknown to many refugees and those that have heard of it are sceptical. After all, the war that has killed hundreds of thousands continued after an earlier peace deal in 2015 collapsed after less than a year.

For the displaced, the deal on paper matters less than an end to the violence.

  1. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
