Laura Heaton blogs about refugees [1] taking part in referendum registration in Southern Sudan: “For the first time in their lives, 22,000 refugees are about to vote, and these seven will take them through the process.
This week registration booths opened to start collecting the names of eligible voters for a historic referendum on independence for South Sudan scheduled for January 9.”
