telling south sudan’s tales in a language not its own

The name of South Sudan is often connected with war and devastation and political wrangles. But there is more to this country. There is literature coming from this very young country. One of the writers is Stella Gaitano. She was born in the capital city of Sudan, Khartoum, but her parents came from the very south. Stella carries her South Sudanese citizenship and works in Juba. Her husband and children have Sudanese citizenship and live and work in Khartoum.

Stella uses the Arabic language for her stories. To get some more information on this writer you can travel to here
