The ongoing conflict in South Sudan is causing people in the country to lose hope.

That's according to Ellen Margrethe Loj, the head of the UN mission in the country, UNMISS.

Almost two million people have fled their homes as a result of continued instability.

Half a million of those people are now refugees outside the country.

Around 100,000 people are living in so-called protection of civilians sites or POCs administered by the UN.

Sebit William asked Ms Loj about her recent tour of the country which included a visit to the town of Lankien in the north of the country.
