South Sudanese expect to see “dividends of peace”

People in South Sudan are expecting to see the “dividends of peace” now that a Transitional Government of National Unity is in place, the head of UN peacekeeping has said.

Hervé Ladsous arrived in the country’s capital Juba over the weekend to assess the progress since April when the new leaders were sworn-in and to take stock of the situation of civilians living on UN bases.
