The people of Southern Sudan “knew” that they would have a “new and free” Sudan when voting for secession ended. I celebrated the historic occasion in Kakuma, Kenya. Kakuma has one of the largest refugee camps in Kenya with people from the Sudans, Uganda, Somalia, Ethiopia and DRC. These pictures were taken on the last day of the vote, which the Sudanese community celebrated with a feast and a dance fest at a sports ground. I loved the antelope-like moments in some of their dances. The mama in the pink suit was a freedom fighter. The plank she’s holding symbolizes the guns used to earn freedom. She used to eat grass and drink urine when she was still in the bush.
