Abstract: This study examines the on-going Civil War in South Sudan. From the study, findings reveal that, the Civil War began in 2013 after an alleged coup by the then Vice President, Riek Machar. This led to government crisis and mobilization of political support along ethnic lines, contributing to the instability in the country. The study therefore concludes that, the ethnic dynamics in South Sudan (i.e. Nuer-Dinka dichotomy) have contributed significantly to the instability of South Sudan and act as catalyst for the Civil War in the country. Due to the devastating effects caused by the instability in the country, the international community including the UN, the AU and the IGAD Plus have taken some steps to restore peace in the country but to no avail, since instability continues to persist in the country. The study, therefore, recommends that, the UN, the AU, the IGAD Plus and Political leaders in South Sudan should devise and apply a hybrid justice mechanism, which facilitates reconciliation and trust-building between the Political leaders of the country to restore and maintain peace and stability in the country.
