This research paper entails the dispensation of justice and its effectiveness in the South Sudan
criminal justice system from the early days of lib.eration struggle by South Sudanese to the post
independence of the Republic of South Sudan and examines the challenges facing dispensation
of criminal justice system; making it another point in the South Sudan historical development of
criminal causation and the laws creating the criminal justice system in South Sudan. Both
primary and secondary data were consulted to determine the extent to which the dispensation of
justice and its effectiveness in South Sudan has been observed.
It is widely acknowledged that there is institutional decay and weak institutions for
accountability with little or no capacity at all. The judiciary which is the central arm that
concerned with dispensation of justice suppose is still in its fonnative stages with no capacity to
administer substantive justice and oversight and hence rendering legal profession weak with no
regulatory body. There is a need to treat the system as a whole by recognizing the
interdependence of the police, prosecution, courts and correctional components even though
customs, traditions, and other factors tend to accentuate and peipetuate the separateness and
autonomy of these functions.
As we can see the criminal justice system is designed for crime control, but the control of crime
must be consistent with our social and political heritage. The justice system must achieve a
balance or equilibrium (as do all systems) between competing values of vengeance and
assistance, and differing political persuasion, as well as between individual actors and social
regularity, it is the balance of these opposing systems that renders the justice system so complex.
