Kenyi Yasin the Executive Director of The Advocates for Human Rights and Democracy said their aim as a Rights organization is to ensure that students also have roles to play to bring peace into the country.

“Our vision is to craft progressive and democratic law abiding society where fundament rights are respected. The South Sudan court of law should be independent for citizens to follow the law and rules of the country. It should also conduct a free and fair election to enable the citizens to vote for new leaders of their choice,” said Francis Aguek  Madut.

He added that should encourage legal aid to prevent illegal crimes taking place in the country. He also said power struggle should stop to give the young people opportunities to lead,” said Madut the Executive Director of National Disabled Organization.

During a performance of poem from Juba Day, a student said the government should allow freedom of speech to allow sharing of ideas on how South Sudanese should bring peace back to the country and live to develop themselves.

“We should listen to advice from our parents and elderly people for a better life ahead”, mentioned John Kenyi, a student from Comboni secondary school.

He said youth should not be ignorant and that they should engage themselves in positive activities that shall bring peace and unity to the country. He added that the youth should have a spirit of harmony and see themselves as South Sudanese.

“Actors and Actresses have a big role to play in peace building. Talent is given by God so that we act according to the human daily characters,” Kenya said.

The event was officially opened by the program manager of the Juba Civil Resource Centre, Samson Botrus. It was attended by representatives from several secondary schools around Juba.
