Youth dialogue begins in Boma

By Martha David

Youth in Boma State are discussing together to restore relationships among themselves after they had been involved in conflict of cattle raiding.

Speaking to Juba Monitor on phone yesterday, the Minister of Information in Boma State John Kaka said the two days’ dialogue workshop from 4th to 5th of September was meant to unite the youth from different areas affected by other cultures.

“The reason why we conducted the youth dialogue is to restore the relationship between youth who are fighting among themselves, we need them to maintain their unity,” John added.

The minister explained that the youth has been divided into three categories to identify the cultural change among the youth from the past generation to the generation of today.

He revealed that 60 youth participating in the workshop are from different areas, 20 of them are from last generation, 20 from second to last and 20 are from elders.

The workshop was funded by United Nations Development Program [UNDP] in partnership with Sweden and Kuria cooperation Agency. It was attended by commissioners of Pibor North and South counties.
