AfrobeatRadio on South Sudan Independence Referendum
Are peace and self-determination possible, for the Sudanese people, despite troops amassing in both north and the south, and vast oil wealth, concentrated in the South and coveted by competitive foreign powers? And, despite the Global War on Terror, which casts north and south on opposite sides of a Judeo-Christian/Islamic divide? Ann Garrison reports on Southern Sudan’s referendum on independence.
This program was produced by Ann Garrison and broadcast on January 8, 2011 on AfrobeatRadio on WBAI 99.5 FM, New York at 4:00 PM. Our guests include:
- Mugume D. Rwakaringi, African reporter for Nile Fortune in Djuba, Southern Sudan,
