MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Salva Kiir Mayardit is the President. and Abdalla Hamdok was appointed as Prime Minister by the Sovereignty Council on 21 August 2019, as part of the country’s transition to democracy.

South Sudan, a nation of roughly 11 million people, is seen as one of the most diverse nations in the region, consisting of more than 60 different ethnic groups. Around 60% of its population identifies as Christian. Although it attained independence from Sudan in 2011, in recent years, political disputes have largely fallen along ethnic lines. South Sudan is only recently emerging from a devastating, multiyear civil war. However, it has been mired in political instability and violence since 2013. Although the new outbreak of war caught the Church unprepared in South Sudan, it has played a major role in protecting people and mobilizing humanitarian support, and in mediating local peace and reconciliation processes rebuilding the capacity of the nation.
