Sudan has been a nation at war for years. The Muslims of the north have waged an all out war against the non-Muslims of the south, who are mostly Christians and animists. As of today, South Sudan is a country of its own. Let’s hope this move brings peace. Indeed, let’s pray for peace. The track record in Sudan has not lately been laced with peace.
For now, congratulations, South Sudan. You are the world’s newest nation.
