With more than 10 militia groups, observers say that the country — which is only five years old — could be divided into the three regions.
A failed peace agreement, lack of institutions of governance, economic collapse, lack of donor support due to embedded official corruption and increased ethnic cleansing are driving the disintegration.
A United Nations report says that South Sudan is experiencing ethnic cleansing and edging closer to genocide.
