Jul 09, 2014, 06:18 PM

The political dispute in #SouthSudan between President Salva Kiir and his former deputy Riek Machar has caused many people to flee. Since fighting began in December 2013, the #UNHCR has received over 150,000 refugees at its camp in #Gambella in #Ethiopia. Many more people are expected to join them, as peace talks flounder. Rebecca Garang - the widow of the man regarded as the father of the nation, John Garang - is closely associated with the long struggle for self-determination in South Sudan. She spoke to #FocusOnAfrica's Audrey Brown, and shared her reaction to the testimonies of Sudanese refugees sheltering in Gambella.
