The South Sudan Young Leaders Forum (SSYLF) plans to mobilise youth to critically evaluate the successes and failures of the leaders
With 70 members drawn from the diaspora and South Sudan, the group has doctors, lawyers and economists.
The group says that the government, led by President Salva Kiir and his former deputy Dr Riek Machar, failed to make use of the international goodwill that the country enjoyed at Independence in July 2011 to build strong state institutions. Instead, the leaders adopted a strategy of disorder to undermine key institutions.
