In South Sudan, Father's Day is celebrated on the last Monday of August. President Salva Kiir Mayardit proclaimed it before 27 August 2012. First celebrated on 27 August 2012, Father's Day was not celebrated in South Sudan in 2011 (due to the country's independence).
Family is the most important aspect of life in South Sudan. The man is the breadwinner and the decision maker, while females are the house maker and child bearer. South Sudanese society tends to be deeply patriarchal. The father or eldest man leads the family and holds the most authority. Family assets and inheritance are also passed down through the male line.
