TORIT, 09 July 2012 [Gurtong] – The 76-year-old founder of the Kuron Holy Trinity Peace Village in Kapoeta East County of Eastern Equatoria State said the leaders in the country must be held accountable for their deeds.
“Those in power should respect public resources and use the little we have to sustain livelihoods. Be generous to others and live a modest life,” said Taban.
He urged the people to be generous in assisting the poor while avoiding pitfalls that result from greed, selfishness, and overindulgence.
According to the Bishop, for the new nation to seize true nation-building with real peace being enjoyed, essential services such as roads, schools, hospitals and water supply need to be provided to the people of South Sudan by their Government at all levels.
