Enough Project’s John Prendergast: South Sudan Peace Deal at “Grave Risk”

Posted by Enough Team on July 10, 2016

After returning from South Sudan this past week, Enough Project Founding Director John Prendergast said: "The South Sudan peace deal is at grave risk due to the fighting in Juba, just one day after South Sudan marked its fifth anniversary as the world's newest independent country. Just as consequentially, the massive humanitarian aid effort is also being put at extreme jeopardy at a time when nearly five million people are severely food insecure. Command and control on both sides of the fighting appears to have broken down. Regional leaders are actively promoting a ceasefire, seemingly the only hope for preventing a return to full scale war."
