Voting for the independence of South Sudan remains a wise decision regardless of the turmoil that has followed, the head of a private media company in the country has said.

The African nation has suffered a year of internal conflict as government forces continue to battle rebels loyal to a deposed former Vice-President, forcing close to 2 million people to flee their homes.

Over 100,000 of them have sought refuge in the bases of the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).

Sebit William sat down with Victor Kerry, the Deputy Editor in Chief of Citizen Television and Newspaper to review the past year's challenges and look ahead to 2015.
