The 60 kilometers paved roads country

Today is the last day of the Southern Sudan week long independence referendum which involved 3.9 milion Sudanese citizens. The predictable results will lead to the creation of a new country in July 2011, the Republic of Southern Sudan. Expectations of the locals are very high and this event represents for the overall region an important proof of maturity.

The days of the civil war in Nigeria when the eastern regions of the country proclaimed the independence of Biafra seem very far. The cold war is more a fact of history books and the International community seems unite, supportive and respectful towards the final results of the votation. For sure there will be a lot to do for aid agencies, NGOs and the United Nations already working in the area
