The people of Motti, a village in Eastern Equatoria, have been through a few dark years since 2016, when violence put an end to life as they knew it and forced them to flee.
“Our 2019 should begin with a new page of love for one another. I know, it is not easy to forgive, but if I can forgive the leaders of our country for making me a widow in 2013, why can’t we all forgive one another for the sake of our children?”
Confidence and trust-building, the bedrock for the implementation of the negotiated Revitalized Peace Agreement, were the focus at a meeting between the South Sudan People's Defense Forces and the Sudan People’s Liberation Army in Opposition in Pajok, located in the Eastern Equatoria
The people living in the Torit and Kapoeta regions have signed an agreement to advance peaceful coexistence and to regulate, control and manage cattle movements between the counties of Kidepo Valley, Riwoto, Ikotos, Chukudum, Torit East, Kimotong and Lopa.
“Torit give us a chance! Marriage is between adults, not between an adult and a child. We are left without a future when our brothers are sent to school, but we are picked out to clean, cook and get married,” Mary Akur, a student at the Father Saturlino school, poured out.
