  • THE BIRTH OF THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH SUDAN

    THE BIRTH OF THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH SUDAN
    Juba, Republic of South Sudan, 9 July 2011There is an euphoric atmosphere in south Sudan's capital: people are waving south Sudan's flag, dancing and singing.The formal declaration of independence has just benn made: the Republic of South Sudan is an independent state, the world’s newest country, after two devastating civil wars with Khartoum, in which more than two million people are estimated to have died and more than five million have become externally displaced while others have been internally displaced.”The freedom of the South is not the end of the road, because we cannot be enemies. We must build strong relations,” says Mr Salva Kiir Mayardit, first elected President of Southern Sudan.A referendum on independence for Southern Sudan was held in January 2011, with 98.83% of the electorate opting for secession, dividing Africa's biggest country. The President of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, accepted the results and issued a Republican Decree confirming the outcome of the referendum.Though it is rich in oil, the new Republic of South Sudan is one of the least-developed country on earth, and ethnic tensions and troubled relations with the north will provide constant security challenges. It is also acknowledged to have some of the worst health indicators in the world. The under-five infant mortality rate is 112 per 1,000, while maternal mortality is the highest in the world at 2,053.9 per 100,000 live. Certain disputes still remain such as sharing of the oil revenues as an estimated 80% of the oil in the whole of Sudan is from South Sudan, which would represent amazing economic potential for one of the world's most deprived areas. The region of Abyei still remains disputed and a separate referendum is due to be held in Abyei on whether they want to join North or South Sudan. Citizenship, legal matters and resources like oil will need to be negotiated too.
