South Sudan Broadcasting Corporation (SSBC) journalist Mading Ngor has had a long journey.
Surviving the Southern Sudanese War in his childhood, Ngor was eight years old when the civil war broke out, forcing him and his mother to seek safety at a refugee camp in Kenya.
Years later, Ngor moved to Canada where he studied journalism.
He joined Joanne Joseph on Afternoon Drive to share his story and more about the politics in his home country.
