African Business;Mar2010, Issue 362, p44
The article discusses probability of incidents that may occur in Sudan as voting on the independence referendum is approaching. From 1956 until 1972 and from 1983 until 2005, fighting between North and South Sudan plagued the country. In January 2005, the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) was signed to end the country's north-south conflict. But the risk of renewed violence is increasing as the South Sudan government in Juba will take control of a large portion of national oil production.
