Challenges persist in South Sudan

Development has been rapid since independence two months ago but feelings remain mixed.

    It is almost two months since South Sudan gained its independence. The focus in the country has now shifted from celebrations to politics.

    President Salva Kiir has announced the names of the 29 ministers in the government and some parts of town have seen a lot of development in a short time. But reactions have been mixed.

    Some people have raised concerns that the new cabinet still includes familiar faces from past administrations. While others are concerned that development of the country, one of the poorest in the world, needs to be more widespread.
