On 29 September, the National Interest published an article posing this question.  It says that South Sudanese elites have responded to the UN’s accusations of corruption with their own: that the UN is fomenting an “international campaign” to destabilise South Sudan and its government.  The UN has released a report accusing South Sudan’s elite class of stealing tens of millions of dollars from the poor and war-torn country.  It concluded that $73 million had disappeared from public coffers since 2018, with $39 million stolen in the span of 2 months. 


Any modest contributions for my time and ongoing expenses are welcomed!  I have a page where you can do so, and where one-off contributions start as low as $3, at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
