The Republic of South Sudan became the world’s newest nation and Africa’s 55th country on July 9, 2011. South Sudan is located in northeastern Africa.

Its beautiful lush rainforests, swamplands are home to some of the world’s beautiful animal world. Before 2011, South Sudan was part of Sudan. South Sudanese population is having African culture and ways of living. Juba is the capital of South Sudan.

December 2013 and July 2016 have undermined the development gains achieved since independence and worsened the humanitarian situation. As a consequence, South Sudan remains caught in a web of fragility, economic stagnation, and instability a decade after independence.


South Sudan is one of the most beautiful African countries having rich in ethnicity and culture. There are nearly 64 major ethnic groups in the country. Despite the presence of many commonalities between them, each one has many unique systems of social structure, livelihoods cultural traditions and a sense of identity.

This diversity has at once presented both a unique opportunity for the country to enjoy the colorful richness of these traditions and a threat to national unity and a collective sense of national identity. In other words, much like the rest of black African, South Sudan has had to face up to the question of whether cultural diversity is an asset that aides the development of the country or liability that could shatter the hope of strong collective nationhood.

This question about cultural diversity has been tackled by the philosophy of national development, by putting all the cultures, languages, traditions, the arts, social norms, and the unique livelihoods on a national stage in order to equitably celebrate that diversity while teasing that which unites.
