THANKS BE TO THE ALMIGHTY, PEACE IS COMING
Editorial 28th June 2018
Thanks and appreciation should not stop now after the Khartoum agreement. The struggle to bring back the country on its foot should begin until hostilities amongst the population is brought to an end. The two days sitting under the chairmanship of the Sudanese President, Omer Hassan Ahmed El-Bashir between the warring parties took a new dimension according to the document inked by President Salva Kiir, his former deputy turned rebel, Dr. Riek Machar and witnessed by other groups in the talks. This far the country has come. The suffering has been eminent and hopelessness among the citizens, noticed across. Three major components were agreed on and signed. What will now stand on the way to peace which this country has longed for this much? There must be forgiveness and tolerance. There must be such for a new approach to national and international issues. There must be a starting point for the healing of wounds that have been inflicted out the minds and the body of the general public. But most there must be continuous prayers for peace to guide the leaders in the right direction. There must be understanding that these leaders are the servants of the people and not their masters. These components which were agreed upon and signed have been the centre of contention. Ceasefire, Security arrangement and to revise the bridging proposal. These almost cover areas which were considered contentious, apart from the power sharing. With these agreed upon the rest should be a walk-over if the parties are really willing with honest and trust to bring peace to the people of this country. There is need to move forward after being stagnant without development focus and human integrity because of this five years civil war which should not have been there in the first place. Indeed it was and has been a senseless war.
