Clooney made some shows in Washington in the past weeks hoping his superstar wattage will help shine a light on the situation in Sudan

Kenya to Lobby Eritrea over Sudan – S.Sudan Oil Dispute

South Sudan Demands Withdrawal of Ugandan Troops from it Soil

Prior to its invasion, Ethiopia settled its troops on an Eritrean Soil of Adi Murug at the pretext of pursuing remnants of the Afar Opposition. Is this a similar precedent to South Sudan too from a client state Uganda? Need to watch out!

“Now that there is peace in South Sudan, the presence of Uganda soldiers is irrelevant,” Officials
