Saving South Sudan - Part 1-3


Late last year, South Sudan's president, Salva Kiir, accused his former vice president, Riek Machar, of attempting a coup d'├ętat amid accusations of rampant corruption within the government. Infighting immediately broke out within the presidential guard, sparking what has now become a brutal tribal and civil war that has pitted Machar's ethnic Nuer loyalists against the majority Dinka, who have sided with Kiir. Machar narrowly escaped assassination, fleeing to the deep bush as Kiir's troops razed his home and killed his bodyguards. And now the world's newest sovereign nation is in imminent danger of becoming a failed state.

In February, journalists and filmmakers Robert Young Pelton and Tim Freccia set out on a grueling mission to locate Machar in his secret hideout in Akobo and get his side of the story. Accompanying was Machot Lat Thiep, a former child soldier and Lost Boy who had advised on South Sudan's constitution and now works as a manager of a Costco in Seattle. Machot acted as a guide of sorts, arranging Pelton and Freccia's rendezvous with Machar through a series of endless satellite-phone calls to old contacts and rebel platoons, who would eventually guide the group to the deposed vice president.

After spending a couple days with Machar, he granted Pelton and Freccia unprecedented access to the front lines of a battle in Malakal, where for the first time in history the pair documented the heretofore mythical White Army as they looted, murdered, and pillaged their way to some twisted interpretation of "victory."

Saving South Sudan is a multi-platform exploration of the horrors of the country's newest civil war. We devoted an entire issue of the magazine to Robert Young Pelton and Tim Freccia's sprawling 35,000-plus word epic exploration of the crisis in South Sudan. It's a companion piece of sorts; watch the documentary and read the issue or vice versa. But you won't get a full scope of the situation without doing both.

#Rihanna Who? #Drake Cuddles Up To His 'Boo' Weeks After RiRi Broke His Heart!

They do say the best way to get over someone is to get under someone new!
And Drake might just be doing that because he appears to have healed his broken heart with the help of a beautiful lady.
The rapper posted an innnnneresting pic (above) on Instagram that seems to be revealing quite a bit about Drake's love life. Weeks after splitting with Rihanna, Drake might just be lovin' on another lady.
Along with the snap, he posted the message:
"Me and my boo since way back when and every now and again @Fairytailshair haaaaa"
Oooooh, so she's been his boo and is sometimes still his boo??
You've got our attention, Drake! And she got ours because she also posted a pic of Drake hanging with her brother (below)!
But in case you're wondering who this lil' lady is, she's Brandy Prince, daughter of James Prince, CEO of Rap-A-Lot Records.
And apparently she's also someone who has Drake's heart…perhaps she even had it BEFORE RiRi?!
If so, she's probably the right one to mend it after its heartbreak!
