By Hassan Arun Cosmas
The Commissioner of Yei River County, Central Equatoria State Aggrey Cyrus Kanyi kwa has called for peaceful coexistence worldwide.
The call came during the commemoration of the International Day of Peace, Tuesday at Youths Garden in Yei.
Commissioner Aggrey regretted that the entire world had a lot of challenges that confronted Countries, and cited that only a few nations were free from conflict and violence.
He called on the citizens of Yei County and South Sudan at large to take the opportunity of the International Day of Peace to bring peace to the region.
Cyrus urged people to sacrifice and task each other with the responsibility of bringing peace to Yei County of Central Equatoria and South Sudan at large.
“Today is an International Day of Peace that looks into how peace will come into the world because the world has a lot of challenges. There are only few countries in the world which are not experiencing conflict. I want us people of Yei, Central Equatoria and South Sudan at large to take the opportunity of the International Day of Peace to bring total peace in the region. Let us sacrifice ourselves and take responsibilities to bring peace in Yei,” appealed commissioner Cyrus.
The commissioner regretted that the conflict citizens felt in the country was the problem or issue of the government.
The head of the county encouraged every individual to play their role in ensuring that peace prevailed in Yei County of Central Equatoria and South Sudan as well.
He believed that those who did not want to participate in putting efforts to end the conflict in the country were against peace.
“Some people in South Sudan think that the ongoing conflict is the problem of the government. It is no longer the problem of the government. If it is our problem, then we have a responsibility and role to play. If you are a chief, what is your responsibility in bringing peace. If you are a chief and pull back efforts to peace, then you are against peace. If you are a government official and army who don’t sacrifice to work towards peace, then you are one of those who encourage conflict,” said the commissioner.
Aggrey Cyrus appealed to the people of Yei and South Sudan to own the revitalized peace agreement and work towards peace in the nation.
The 2021 International Day of Peace was under the theme: “Recovering better for an equitable and sustainable world”
