I will say that reconciliation should start with IGAD, with the politicians of south that we have ARCSS that need to be implemented and we need to take it forward. If IGAD, RJMEC and CTSAMVM do not want to help us to take it forward, let us grab it out from them so that we are not laughed at and intimidated. We need to start taking care of ourselves and be responsible and accountable to any action we do.
