Less than a year after President Salva Kiir and his former vice president Riek Machar signed a peace agreement to end the civil war in South Sudan, and just a night before the country’s fifth independence anniversary, fighting erupted again in the capital, Juba. What exactly has gone wrong?
ISS research associate Dr Nelson Alusala will present the next View on Africa briefing. He will explore the issues at the heart of the current conflict in South Sudan, along with regional responses and likely future scenarios.
