I rarely discuss politics online but today is an exceptional day and it’s way beyond politics, my home country Sudan is officially split into two states as the State of Southern Sudan officially declared independence a few hours ago. This is the most important and influential development in Sudan modern history since the Independence Day in Jan 1st, 1956.
Personally, I cordially congratulate the people of Southern Sudan (our new neighbors!) and wish them all the best in building their emerging state.
For more information about the new state, you can visit the official website of Government of Southern Sudan where you can also find details about the official ceremony in the independence day.
