By Sheila Ponnie

South Sudanese have been urged to take responsibility in the search for peace in order to end the suffering in the country.

Interim Chairperson of Reconstituted Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission, Ambassador Lt General Augustino Njoroge said the Revitalized Peace Agreement gives an opportunity for the country to emerge from war.

Augustino was speaking to residents of Rejaf County on Saturday during the Neighborhood Advocacy for Peace funded by UNMISS.

“The people of South Sudan must take the responsibility of looking for peace and I urge especially the leaders to spread the agreement and push for implementation so that we can have durable peace and prosperity in this country,” said Augustino.

He also encouraged peaceful coexistence in South Sudan urging people to live together in peace and unity.

Augustino revealed that RJEMC is working to ensure that the peace agreement is translated into native languages, printed and given to the citizens in the country so that everyone gets to know the Revitalized Peace Agreement.

The Revitalized Peace Agreement was signed in September 2018 and it brought great Jubilation to the people of South Sudan especially in Juba City where thousands of South Sudanese gathered at Juba International Airport to welcome President Salva Kiir Mayardit upon his arrival from Ethiopia with the signed documents.
