South Sudan, the world’s newest country, has announced it will not celebrate its independence day this year. Why not? It simply doesn’t have the money.“We decided not to celebrate the July 9 Independence Day, because we don’t want to spend that much,” Information Minister Michael Makuei Lueth said last week, according to Al Jazeera. “We need to spend the little that we have on other issues.” NewsS
