Radio & mobile open up South Sudan
South Sudan remains threatened by conflict, displacement and severe food shortages.
But the rapid spread of FM radio stations and the roll-out of a nationwide mobile telephone network has made it easier for aid agencies to reach those who urgently need help in Africa’s newest country.
Infoasaid’s South Sudan Media and Telecoms Landscape Guide, maps the rapid development of local radio and mobile telecoms since the Comprehensive Peace Agreement of 2005 paved the way for independence six years later.
Sudan was still officially a united country at the start of 2011.
However, Southern Sudan was widely expected to secede and become a fully independent state following a referendum on independence in January 2011.
According to provisional results, nearly 99% voted for independence in the week-long referendum.
