A Japanese peacekeeper serving with the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) has discovered the beauty of sunrise and sunset in the newest African nation.

Daisuke Yamane is part of the Japanese contingent of UNMISS that is helping the country stand on its feet since it gained independence from Sudan in 2011.

After the recent conflict broke out in December last year between government and rebel forces, part of his work has involved helping to provide water and toilets for internally displaced people.

David Lukan took a tour with Mr. Yamane at the Juba International Airport where the peacekeeper is assigned.
