He also urged the youth to go to school and help in developmental programs since their future lies in education.
The government is also urged to put more efforts to the peace process and incorporate the other rebels in the government and join the process of development.
In an effort to find out whether it Khartoum is supporting the rebels as alleged, Chol said that “For anyone to begin a fight, there must be a source of support.”
