Southern Sudanese debate new name

Juba residents ponder what to name new country that will separate from Sudan.

    At least 98 per cent of southern Sudanese had voted for the region's separation from the north, according to provisional results of the recent referendum.

    What to name the new country that will separte from Sudan is now the question that has been generating a lot of discussion.

    A series of names have been suggested but none is without fault. Some say that South Sudan, for instance, does not offer a clean break from what the country is getting away from.
