South Sudan halts oil production as hopes disappear in tribal conflicts, hunger and market failure

Thousands have died in borders disputes and tribal violence between Sudan and its neighbour South Sudan. Oil produced in the south could resolve the future but the two countries are deadlocked in reaching agreement on how much the south should pay the north for transporting, refining and exporting the oil while the south accuses the north of stealing oil.

SOUTH Sudan, the world’s newest country has faced armed conflict, famine and inflation raging at more than 60 per cent since it gained independence six months ago.

It is immersed in a catastrophic situation but there is still hope that the country’s oil will deliver a stable future.
