Couple of hours to independence

South Sudan will in the next couple of hours become independente. The population and the authorities are in full swing preparing the official ceremony. Juba is now cleaner and more organised. A move to show the international dignitaries the great job the government is doing for this country. However, the outskirts of the future capital, and the rest of the country, have suffer no changes.

Below, a photograph taking this afternoon in Saint Mary's neighborhood, a slum of Juba that houses around a thousand people. The government plans to destroy it in the coming months, leaving its residents homeless.
