Election No Silver Bullet - South Sudan Needs a New Vision

Africa's youngest independent state has been plagued by chronic instability since gaining its independence a decade ago. Civil society groups have called on the country's government to step down as South Sudan deals with what Amnesty International is calling a new wave of repression. allAfrica's Mantsadi Sepheka speaks with Dr Andrew Tchie, senior research fellow, who has written several papers focusing on South Sudan's struggles with democracy, stability and peace about how the country can break free from its cycle of peace agreements and conflict.
