By Martin Manyiel Wugol
The Anglican Church in South Sudan has backed and appealed to President Salva Kiir to form the transitional government of national unity by November 12th deadline.
Primate Archbishop of Anglican Church His Grace Abraham Mayom Athian Deng said the formation of the Revitalized-Transitional Government of National Unity (R-TGoNU) could bring to an end the suffering of the citizens.
His Grace Abraham has urged Dr. Riek Machar to be part of the new government.
He was addressing the congregation yesterday during Anglican Church leadership conference in Western Lakes State.
The event was organized under the theme “Peace and unity of all Christians.”
Abraham reiterated that whatever the reason it might be, there was no reason to keep the citizens suffering.
Eastern Bhar Naam County Commissioner Wugol Majak Wugol appealed to the faithful to continue praying for peace and stability in South Sudan.
He said God has not forgotten the people of South Sudan, stressing that the Old Testament also talks about South Sudan.
Wugol appealed to residents of his county to report any crime activities in the area to the government.
“Keeping peace and security needs collective effort from citizens and the government. You must work cooperatively peace in Western Lakes State,” he said.
Emmanuel Gop Ater, Acting Archbishop in charge of three counties in Western Lakes State urged the faithful to be peace ambassadors.
He praised the authorities at the grassroots for maintaining peace and unity among communities.
