Accession of the refugee king

Accession of the refugee king

Southern Sudan is a wartorn no-man's land, with no government, no reliable roads, little fresh water, no electricity, no guarantee of transport. But Adams was travelling under the protection of a remarkable man, an African refugee who had been working in a recycling plant in Ottawa. The man's name was Adongo. Fifteen years after he fled his birthplace, Adongo was going home to save his people, the Anyuak. He was now their king.
