AWEIL, 27 January 2014 [Gurtong] -The 54th African nation witnessed a wide spread killing of people, destruction of property and displacement of thousands of people since unrest erupted mid last month as a result of power struggle within the ruling SPLM party.

“We, the SPLM Youth League members in Australia have been worryingly witnessing and watching the current unfortunate conflict which has already cost us a great number of our beloved citizens,” a joint press statement said.

“We are a nation too young and quite diverse to afford any war with ourselves. Any loss of a citizen be it a soldier or civilian is directly crippling our nation. We have seen what we built up in several years destroyed in days; villages and towns burned health facilities, banks and markets looted and destroyed completely.” 

The youth urged the delegates of the warring parties in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa to focus on national interests. 

“Once we have complete cessation of hostilities, we appeal to all SPLM authorities to seriously deal with SPLM and national issues and find lasting solutions. SPLM should also sincerely engage citizens in national-tribal reconciliation and wound healing,” the statement added.
