Put aside differences and dialogue on nation building, says a South Sudanese church official


The Coordinator of the Justice and Peace Committee of South Sudan’s Catholic Bishops is urging the country’s citizens, especially the youth to engage in dialogue to build their nation, which is embroiled in a civil conflict that broke out in December 2013.

Speaking at a two-day workshop on Conflict Management in Juba this week, Jim Long John urged the Christian youth at the training session to help communities put aside their differences and to engage in dialogue so as to live peacefully together.

During the workshop, the young people identified insecurity, land grabbing, tribalism, injustice, corruption, economic crisis and cultural conflicts as issues of serious concern in South Sudanese communities.

They resolved to help people address their grievances through dialogue, prayer, respect for human rights and also promote a change of attitude.

Meanwhile, the government of South Sudan is to launch a national dialogue to discuss issues of forgiveness, unity and national development, President Salva Kiir told the National Transitional Assembly on Tuesday.
