The Governor of Yei River state has urged the citizens to find ways to end the conflict either individually or collectively.
Emmanuel Adil Anthony made the remarks on Tuesday during the launch of the Greater Kajo-Keji Peace and Reconciliation Conference in Juba.
“We have to unite and resume a strong hope for peace and national development,” he told the audience.
Governor Adil suggested that the Yei residents should reach out on individual basis or as a group to people living in the refugee or internally displaced persons’ camps to spread the message of peace and reconciliation.
He said it was important to enlighten those who do not know much about the Revitalized-peace Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCISS).
“Nobody will solve the problems of our country better than us,” Adil said.
He anticipated that the conference would boost Yei residents’ enthusiasm to strengthen their unity and get the people of greater Kajo – Keji in the lead for peace building.
“We can make it together,” Governor Adil stressed.
Derick Derickson, one of the participants said the two day conference for the Kajo-Kaji community members in Juba would eradicate potential threats to peaceful co-existence of communities in the county.
“The conference will also help us brainstorm on how these threats can be mitigated at various levels,” Derickson wrote to Juba Monitor on WhatsApp.
