PoC camp leader urges citizens to stop tribalism

 By Mandela Nelson Denis

A camp leader at the United Nations Protection of Civilians Site (POC-3) in Juba, Charles Riek has urged the citizens to denounce tribalism and focus on the future in order to make South Sudan a better place for everyone to live in.

He made the appeal while addressing school children at PoC-3 during the celebration of Global Hand Washing Day that was attended by the camp leaders and staff of Nile Hope Foundation.

“Stop tribalism and focus on the future,” Riek said.  “Women and men should join adult education so that they can acquire knowledge and be able to educate their children,” he added.

Mr. Riek urged the internally displaced persons (IDPs) living at the PoCs to take education seriously, adding that the future of the country lies in their hands.

The Protection of Civilian Camp in Juba is home to thousands of South Sudanese who were displaced as a result of the 2013 conflict in the country.

Thousands more fled their homes and sought protection at POCs following the renewed fighting in July last year.
