English Language Fleeing 'Anglophone' South Sudan (part I)

Atem Yaak Atem /
English language in what is today the State of South Sudan has played a pivotal role in education and government. As mentioned earlier before English was a medium of education in schools of Southern Sudan during the colonial times and even after "independence" of Sudan in 1956. However, when the military took power in 1958 it soon embarked on the twin policy of Islamicisation and Arabisation, including Arabicisation of the entire country.
