By Martín Manyiel Wugol
South Sudanese citizens living in Kampala have welcomed the newly formed Revitalized Transitional Government of National Unity.
According to views gathered by Juba Monitor from both living in the refugee settlement and urban areas, every South Sudanese was in need of peace so as to return home.
Mary, one of the refugees who preferred to be identified with only one name, said the formation of the new government was good news and called on the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs to support the repatriation of IDPs and refugees.
“We are tired as mothers because our children are often asking us when they are returning home to South Sudan and to answer this direct questions South Sudan government and all the parties to the Revitalized Peace Agreement should work extremely hard to repatriate all the refugees back home,” she said.
John Marial, an urban refugee told Juba Monitor that he was tired of living in a foreign country without employment.
He asked all political leaders to work as one team to deliver services to the people who had suffered for so long.
“This government of national unity is expected to meet people’s expectations and most importantly meeting demands and aspirations of local communities at the grassroots level,” John said.
John Ariath Deng, a South Sudanese lawyer based in Kampala urged the Revitalized Government of National Unity to give judiciary full powers to restore respect of law in the country.
He said nation building was centered on rule of law and without strong judiciary there would be no justice in the country.
