    South Sudan is the world's newest country Unfortunately it leads the world in dreadful statistics Its literacy rate is only 27 per cent of an 8 million population Death in childbirth is very high and malnutrition is widespread Millions of refugees are living in various camps A major reason for all this misery was the civil war that went on for than fifty yearsIndependence ended this war between the mainly Christian south and the largely Muslim north but now the Southerners have turned on each other The above statistics are now far worse Millions have fled The new civil war is now between the Nuer and the Dinka Famine is now widespread The UN has said a catastrophe loomsJok is South Sudanese He wonders here if Independence triggered what is happening He teaches in an American University This is an important book marred by errors poor editing and very poor organization The UN again comes out of all this with what remains of its reputation in a bad way Attempts at nation building have been derisory Leadership has been absent What purports to be leadership is corrupt and incompetent Tribal factions have won at every stage Decades old hatreds and internecine fighting overrides​ all elseJok exposes the corruption that is widespread among the military this is not unique New generals were often NCOs days before promotion There is a huge patronage machine fueled by corrupt activities Here the military is not a legitimate vehicle for nation building it is a means of oppression Brutality is endemic within its ranks and towards the peopleOn reading this depressing book you are made aware that while nationalism is flourishing​ in Europe and America its consequences in Africa have been truly dreadful Sudan has now followed Eritrea's break from Ethiopia Rampant corruption and nasty illiberalism stalk the streets Poverty and misery is the daily lot of millions
