The organization that I am working for have just purchased an iDirect Hub, and I would like to get quotations for a full transponder space/ bandwidth from Satellites that have a good footprint over South Sudan.

Have you considered Amos 5 (Ku or C) at 17E? Satellite will be up and operational mid 2011 (if that suits your timelines).
Let me know if you need more info.

The technical brochure for Amos 5 is here:

The Africa C band coverage includes all Sudan.  The Ku3 beam covers only southern Sudan.  Check your hub location also, wherever that may be.

If you are starting out with a new network consider initially leasing a fraction of a transponder with options to increase the bandwidth at future dates.  This might considerably ease your cash flow situation in the early years.
