The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM), Uganda Chapter is set to hold a political rally in Kampala this week on Sunday to foster peace and reconciliation among South Sudanese living in Uganda.
In an exclusive interview with Juba Monitor, Anthony Angelo Kumbonyek SPLM Chapter Chairperson said it will be the SPLM first political rally to be held in Kampala. He said South Sudanese living in Kampala are cordially invited to attend the rally which will be held at Pope Paul Hotel in Rubaga.
He said the purpose of the rally was to restore peace and unity among the South Sudanese living in Uganda. “The other important objective of the rally is to swear in the newly appointed chairpersons and members of youth league and women league who had no time to go to Juba and to be sworn in at the party national secretariat,” he said.
He said South Sudanese youth should be agents of peace and unity of the 64 tribes.
According to Kumabonyek, majority of the SPLM political organs in diaspora have decided to rejuvenate and officially recognize the last year’s re-established party in diaspora.
The SPLM Women League Chairperson, Panda Machol has appealed to all women in Kampala to attend the rally since they were championing the true unity of South Sudanese people under SPLM leadership in the country.
The National Resistance Movement (NRM) Youth League and Women League of the Uganda’s ruling party are among the parties invited to attend the event.
