Governors Arrive in Juba

Posted by Joan Mower:

The governors arrived in Juba, Sudan today - second stop on their Africa trip. Juba will be the capital of South Sudan, slated to become the world’s newest nation on July 9! For now, the resource-rich region remains one of the poorest places on earth.

After a meeting with U.S. consulate staff, our group attended a social event for leading South Sudan officials. Minister of Information Dr. Barnaba Marial Benjamin said he would like VOA “to play a big role in the independent media.”
