South Sudan Independence
South Sudan, Africa’s 54th state, proclaims independence in its new capital Juba, after more than five decades of conflict with the north and two million lives lost. Due to the referendum which was held on the 9th of January 2011 in southern Sudan and which resulted in the secession of the south from the north, many southern Sudanese who were displaced by the war are now back to their home land in the south.?Among all the ten states of the south Northern Bahar el Ghazal has the highest number of the returnees coming mainly from (Khartoum and Darfur). This number is about to increase due to the ongoing movements of the returnees. This number has made pressure on the existing basic services available in the areas of high return.
