the people of south sudan if we want to create a common identity it is much better for us to simply consider our selves Africans rather than just "south sudanese". Because we were just Africans before sudan was created. And every person in south sudan understands that we are all Africans. This is the only way some one from equatoria and some one from warrap or jinglei can have a common sense of identify. How ever every tribe in south sudan shouldn't forget their culture, language and identify simply for the sake of a new nation because no one knows what the new nation is gonna become. Also the idea of a nation is a European thing, our African thing is tribes. Let's keep that !
