Speaking to Eye Radio in Juba, Justice Minister Paulino Wanawila responded to this saying that the African nation would live up to its traditional laws.
Amnesty International researcher Elizabeth Deng, told Gay Star News that the nations government and society is â€śvery hostileâ€ť towards homosexuality.
She said. â€śNo one can be openly homosexual in South Sudan.
â€śGiven the lawlessness, itâ€™s the kind of place where you could easily end up dead because your actual or perceived sexuality.â€ť
She added â€śIt is not a government which takes human rights seriously. When you do not have the basic right to life for its citizens, Iâ€™m not expecting [the UN report] to have much impact on the governmentâ€™s policies.â€ť
