people creating the continent's biggest refugee crisis now the peace deal signed seven months ago hangs by thread government and un agencies are working to return victims the families and homes they left behind. packing up to leave not joint and how younger sister gathered their last few things after six years in camps for the displaced they're looking forward to finally heading home. like he is different from life in the village because here nobody helps you but in the village you have relatives around you and they help you. her sister is also keen to return to her studies. when we were in the campaign kenya we went to school but we had to drop out because we couldn't afford the school fees so we're happy to go back home and be reunited with our parents and continue with our education. when the fighting broke out they felt their home

in rank in the far north of south sudan they took what they could carry and one hundred kilometers to the kenyan border in the far south now they in juba the capital and the us refugee agency helping them leave and accompanying them on a three day long journey back. many of those who returned faced tough challenges fighting is still rampant in parts of the country it hasn't rained in months and the fields have not been attended to for years but that hasn't deterred everyone. just feel happy because oh go go with my family and start preparing our land when there is peace and then we can grow things i used to plant vegetables and fruit when the rain came after years of being apart from their loved ones the. most important thing for now to want and the others is just to get home safe. now
8:34 pm
i spoke to alan boswell on this from the international crisis group i began by asking him exactly how the government and u.n. agencies helping people would tend to homes and villages well you know the government in south sudan has never had much capacity to really help its citizens and of course since the war started it's been really just made and the truth is there's hardly any services that exist outside either of these units estate i.d.p. camps and a few towns so they've been they've been trying to convince some displaced people to return but it's been really challenging because people both aren't sure if they'll have any services when they return but they're also quite afraid of their safety exactly you mentioned really what about do not want to return due to security concerns yeah i'd say most south sudanese remain in that camp but you have many hundreds of thousands who are still protected from u.n.
8:35 pm
you know by u.n. peacekeepers within their own country and then you have millions who are outside the country as well and thus far although there's a new piece you'll either piece still hasn't really progressed and nobody's really seen large scale movements yet from these displaced populations when they'll feel ready to return is sort of a big question that all the aid agencies are trying to ask themselves right now so we're talking about this peace deal and many believe or hoping i'd least that this will be the final peace deal now bring peace back to the cons after five years of civil war is that the sense you get after all the research and i've been looking into this is this going to be that final peace deal. we know they signed this peace deal in september and they gave themselves eight months to do a series of tasks and then they agreed to form a unity power sharing government on may twelfth now of course may tell twelve is
8:36 pm
coming upon it very quickly and it does far the the main rebel leader has requested a six month delay to that timetable they basically haven't implemented any of the steps that they agreed to implement beforehand and so south sudanese themselves are you know quite rightfully skeptical of this the willingness of their leaders to really implement this peace deal and so the jury is still out but there is a long way to go before anyone's going to call this peace deal a success or exactly how the not to be optimistic about what happens if the peace to it has not worked. well it depends how it doesn't work. a few different scenarios one of which is that this unity government is just never formed at all in which case at the moment we have a successful ceasefire between the two between the main groups which is a really big plus it's really the first time in the war so far that we've seen the
8:37 pm
two main actors not fight each other but eventually if this thing doesn't progress we probably see that start to break down on the other scenario is where they actually do form this government and this is what happened in two thousand and sixteen what is almost as soon as they formed a government they started fighting each other in the capital and i'm spreading that spread outside so suppose that those are worrying scenarios well hopefully wish for the best in that situation thank you very much on a most well international crisis group. kenneth aid. much needed food to survive. but most. affected to move to higher ground warning of the continued risk off.
