June 12th 2018 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudan has been rated as the most dangerous country to live in in Africa for the year 2018 by an American organization.

The American organization said 50% of South Sudanese confessed that their live is poor and they are insecure in their own country.

The 2018 Global Law and Order report is based on more than 148,000 interviews with adults in 142 countries including South Sudan, and areas worldwide in 2017.

The report also ranked the country as the third most dangerous country in the world.

Most of the cities including the capital, Juba, in the country remain fragile even for the citizens.

2017 witnessed the rise in number of armed robberies and deaths of people killed by unknown gunmen.

South Sudan descended into civil war in December 2013 after forces loyal to the country’s president, Salva Kiir Mayardiit and his then Governor of Northern Bahr Al-Ghazal State Gen. Paul Malong Awan went door-to-door in the capital Juba killing civilians belonging to the Nuer ethnic group sparking a nation-wide protests from top army generals from the Nuer leading to a civil war.

A peace agreement signed in August 2015 by President Kiir and rebel leader Riek Machar and negotiated under the auspices of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and the African Union (AU) in presence of Troika and other international observers collapsed in July 2016 following fighting at the presidential palace in Juba “J1” reportedly after President Kiir ordered a failed attempt to arrest the SPLM-IO leader Riek Machar.
