In 2011 when South Sudan finally gained independence from the north it seemed a symbol of African progress similar to the end of apartheid in South Africa. But in December 2013, the violence returned. Pitted against each other were South Sudan’s two predominant and most populous tribes, the Dinka and the Nuer. Mark Riedemann welcomes his Excellency Bishop Paride Taban, Bishop Emeritus of Torit, talking about situation in South Sudan today and his personal efforts for peace.
