Rumbek

The Rumbek is a city. Rumbek (Arabic: r+m+b+k+) is the capital of the state of Lakes (also known as Buhayrat) in southern Sudan. Following the peace agreement ending the Second Sudanese Civil War, the Sudanese People's Liberation Movement chose it as the interim administrative center of the semi-autonomous southern regions. Juba became the permanent capital. Rumbek had a population of slightly under 100,000 in 2005, and sustained significant damage during the conflict. It is serviced by a dirt airstrip. There are some paved roads being built, both the airstrip and many of the roads being built by the main roads contractor Civicon Ltd..
