    Celebrations erupted across Juba at midnight as crowds marked South Sudan's long-awaited independence day on Saturday, when the chronically underdeveloped region became the world's newest nation.

    "The people of south Sudan have achieved their dream. The UN and the international community will continue to stand by South Sudan. I am very happy to be here," UN chief Ban Ki-moon told reporters on arrival at the city's UN airport on Friday.

    Last-minute preparations have been taking place throughout Juba in anticipation of a historic ceremony due to be attended by 30 African leaders and top-ranking foreign officials.

    It will be the largest international gathering ever seen in Juba, a war-damaged former garrison town on the White Nile that lacks even basic infrastructure, including reliable power, water and sewage systems.

    On the eve of independence, which comes exactly six months after a referendum saw southerners vote almost unanimously to split with their former civil war enemies in north Sudan, Khartoum announced its official recognition of the new country.

    For decades, until a peace agreement was signed in 2005, southern rebels fought two wars with successive northern governments for greater autonomy and recognition, leaving the region in ruins, millions of people dead and a legacy of mutual mistrust.

    Saturday's main ceremony is to be held at the mausoleum of the late rebel leader John Garang, who died just months after signing the peace accord that ended Africa's longest-running conflict and opened the door to eventual nationhood.

    Military parades, prayers and a performance of the new national anthem are to take place from 0815 GMT, followed by the declaration of independence, the raising of the Republic of South Sudan's flag and the new country's first president, Salva Kiir, taking the oath of office.

    Southern officials have said the chief guest of honour at the celebrations will be Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for alleged crimes against humanity and genocide in Darfur.

    French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe has already said he will try to avoid an encounter with Bashir.

    But the fledgling nation needs all the help it can get to overcome the vast challenges of building a stable and prosperous future.

    For this, it must strike a cooperative relationship with the Sudanese leader, given the strong ties that continue to bind the two countries, and despite the strain on bilateral relations caused by the deadly conflict in the border state of South Kordofan.

    North-south negotiations in Addis Ababa, aimed at disentangling the key unresolved issues between the two sides prior to partition, such as the future status of Abyei, how to manage the country's oil sector and citizenship, have so far failed to do so.

    This means the talks between Juba and Khartoum must continue.

    "I know secession is painful, emotionally and financially... While the people of north and south Sudan will soon live in different countries, their future will be closely linked," Ban said in Khartoum on Friday after meeting Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Karti.

    Hongera sana S Sudan. Tanzania lazima tujifunze pia kutoka Kenya kwa kutumia mwanya wa kumsaidia mpigania uhuru. KUjisifu umemsaidia mtu kupata Uhuru bila wewe kunufaika kiuchumi ni upuuzi mtupu.Sasa hivi Tanznaia tungekuwa na ujanja wa kama Kenya au Marekani wa kuwasaidia watu kupata amani nchini mwao kwa lengo la kuwatawala kiuchumi tungekuwa mbali sana na pengine tungewazidi hata wa kenya na Nigeria kiuchumi. Lakini sisi tulikuwa tunasaidia watu kupata uhuru ili wajiunge na Non alignment au kuwa wakomunisti tuu na hakuna kingine. Huo ulikuwa ni upotezaji wa mali na muda wa bure kwa viongozi wetu.Tumesaidia Msumbiji, Angoal, Sychell, Commoro, na Sauth africa lakini ona ni nchi yetu ni masikini kupita hizo tulizowasaidia.

    South Sudan has become the world's newest nation, the climax of a process made possible by the 2005 peace deal that ended a long and bloody civil war.
    Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon are among the international dignitaries attending the celebrations in the capital, Juba.
    Sudan earlier became the first state to officially recognise its new neighbour.
    The south's independence follows decades of conflict with the north, in which some 1.5 million people died.
    Under the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, a referendum was held on independence, which was favoured by more than 99% of voters.
    The new country is rich in oil, but one of the least developed countries in the world, where one-in-seven children dies before the age of five.
    Unresolved disputes between the north and south, particularly over the new border, have also raised the possibility of renewed conflict.
    [​IMG]

    South Sudan is set to gain independence from Sudan on 9 July 2011 as the outcome of a 2005 peace deal that ended Africa's longest-running civil war.

    An overwhelming majority of South Sudanese voted in a January 2011 referendum to secede and become Africa's first new country since Eritrea split from Ethiopia in 1993.
    The new nation stands to benefit from inheriting the bulk of Sudan's oil wealth, but continuing disputes with Khartoum and a lack of economic development cloud its immediate future..

    Geography

    Formed from the 10 southern-most states of Sudan, South Sudan is a land of expansive grassland, swamps and tropical rain forest straddling both banks of the White Nile.
    It is highly diverse ethnically and linguistically. Among the largest ethnic groups are the Dinka, Nuer and Shilluk.
    Unlike the predominantly Muslim population of Sudan, the South Sudanese follow traditional religions, while a minority are Christians.
    HistoryAs Sudan prepared to gain independence from joint British and Egyptian rule in 1956, southern leaders accused the new authorities in Khartoum of backing out of promises to create a federal system, and of trying to impose an Islamic and Arabic identity.
    In 1955, southern army officers mutinied, sparking off a civil war between the south, led by the Anya Nya guerrilla movement, and the Sudanese government.
    [​IMG]

    The yes vote in the 2011 referendum on independence sparked scenes of jubilation

    The conflict only ended when the Addis Ababa peace agreement of 1972 accorded the south a measure of autonomy.
    But, in 1983, the south, led by the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) and its armed wing, the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA), again rose in rebellion when the Sudanese government cancelled the autonomy arrangements.
    At least 1.5 million people are thought to have lost their lives and more than four million were displaced in the ensuing 22 years of guerrilla warfare. Large numbers of South Sudanese fled the fighting, either to the north or to neighbouring countries, where many remain.
    The conflict finally ended with the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement, under which the south was granted regional autonomy along with guaranteed representation in a national power-sharing government.
    The agreement also provided for a referendum in the south on independence in 2011, in which 99% of southern Sudanese voted to split from Sudan.

    Economy

    [​IMG]

    Most South Sudanese sustain themselves through agriculture

    Long based on subsistence agriculture, South Sudan's economy is now highly oil-dependent. While an estimated 75% of all the former Sudan's oil reserves are in South Sudan, the refineries and the pipeline to the Red Sea are in Sudan.
    Under the 2005 accord, South Sudan received 50% of Sudan's oil proceeds, which provide the vast bulk of the country's budget. But that arrangement was set to expire with independence.
    Despite the oil wealth, South Sudan is one of Africa's least developed countries. However, the years since the 2005 peace accord ushered in an economic revival and investment in utilities and other infrastructure.
    ConflictsAlongside the oil issue, several border disputes with Sudan continue to strain ties. The main row is over border region of Abyei, where a referendum for the residents to decide whether to join south or north has been delayed over voter eligibility.
    The conflict is rooted in a dispute over land between farmers of the pro-South Sudan Dinka Ngok people and cattle-herding Misseriya Arab tribesmen.
    Another source of conflict is the Nuba Mountains region of Sudan's South Kordofan state, where violence continues between the largely Christian and pro-SPLA Nuba people and northern government forces.
    Inside South Sudan, several rebel forces opposed to the SPLM-dominated government have appeared, including the South Sudan Liberation Army (SSLA) of Peter Gadet and a force led former SPLA general George Athor. Juba says these forces are funded by Sudan, which denies the accusation.
