Although Peace has been established in most parts of the country, the Nation is struggling to recover from the damages caused by the war.
As the country is building towards a brighter future the nation is to hold elections in December 2024, yet nobody knows at what it holds. The president of South Sudan Salva Kiir Mayardit and his first deputy Riek Machar formed a coalition government to implement the 2015 peace agreement, which was revitalized in 2018. However, key provisions of the agreement, such as security arrangements, have not been finalized. According to reports there still remains tensions between the two leaders.

And to whom are these questions asked? well the South Sudan Government has all the answers.
