YEI, 12 November 2018 [Gurtong] – Bishop Hillary Luate Adeba said he is thankful to God because the peace agreement has been signed saying it’s high time for all the political leaders of this country to put aside their indifference, reconcile so as to pave way for forgiveness and so that the suffering of the poor South Sudanese is brought to an end.

“I am very happy that we have finally received the peace agreement and I want to make an appeal to the leaders of this country whether being in the government or in the opposition to open a new chapter for true reconciliation and forgiveness so as to re-unit the social fabric of the people that has been broken as a result of the devastating conflict that left thousands killed, properties looted and millions forced into refugee camps” He added.

Hillary said the signed peace deal will create confidence and trust in the South Sudanese leaders and that will only be real if the leaders show true reconciliation and forgiveness and readiness to work together for the good of the people and the country.

Adeba hopes that the peace deal will pave way for the return of thousands South Sudanese displaced to the refugee camps and various villages around Yei River State and South Sudan.
Hillary Adeba also appealed to the South Sudanese leaders and the citizens to denounce the language of hate speech, provocative talking that tears communities apart.

“I want all of us, the politicians and the citizens to light the candles of peace, forgiveness, reconciliation and love so that the slogan one people, one nation is seen real” he added.
He also said religious leaders in Yei are set to preach peace, reconciliation and forgiveness.

“As a church we will not sit down and watch, we have been preaching for peace and reconciliation because we want our people to stay in peace so that they re-direct their efforts to regain their livelihoods and development” he added.

On the 12th of September, all parties to the peace agreement appended their signatures to the agreement to resolve the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan with an aim to end the conflict, re-unite the people and re-build South Sudan.
