This Saturday will see the birth of Africa’s newest nation, South Sudan.

While the South is getting its independence, the rest of the continent has been called to assist in both the North and South to help clear some of the issues that might affect relations between these two nations.

Sudan Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mr Elsiddieg Abdalla says African countries should chip in before foreign countries hijack the initiatives with their imperialistic agendas.

South Sudan will gain independence on Saturday the 9th of July.

This came as a result of a referendum held in February, which saw an overwhelming majority of people from the south choosing to become independent.

However, outstanding issues especially the disputed Abiye region, have threatened to scale up hostilities between Juba and Khartoum.
