Concern over Sudan Referenda

A very interesting quote in this tv piece is by former Sudan peace mediator Lazaro Sumbeiywo about how the breakup of Sudan could lead to the breakup of other African countries with post-colonial borders. He mentions Kenya, Tanzania, Congo.

He said sometimes bad marriages should be ended, and people shouldn't be forced to have to live in the same country. He went on to say, but it was cut out by the editor, maybe because it was too colorful, that sometimes you can't turn water and oil into the same liquid.

For an excellent on the ground view of what's happening in south Sudan I suggest Pete Muller's blog. I profiled Pete in a video before he left on his new journalistic adventure.
