South Sudan must look into new sources of revenue to help shore up its economy and avoid bankruptcy.

That's the personal view of a former World Bank consultant who is also the chairperson of the Central Equatorial State vision 2040, a strategy aimed at developing the state from the grassroots level over the next 25 years.

Kenyi Spencer says the government needs to look at sources of income other than oil.

He believes the country could partner with nearby cement factories in Uganda.

Sebit William spoke with Mr Spencer and began by asking him to describe South Sudan's financial status.
