“People from all walks of life are urging South Sudan to achieve peace. Foreigners are even investing their money for this goal. They all want peace for our country. It is time for leaders to show true leadership”: this is the appeal launched by Mgr. Edwardo Hiiboro Kussala, Bishop of the diocese of Tombura Yambio, who has returned to talk about the peace agreement in the country, reported Fides News Agency.
The Bishop also expressed some disappointment at how the understanding is proceeding. Hiiboro urged leaders “to think about the good of the country’s population, especially children and young people, who are denied a bright future because of political conflicts”.
The Bishop of Tombura Yambio spoke on the occasion of the distribution of books for primary and secondary school students in the western states of Gbudue, Tambura, Maridi and Amadi, four of the 32 that make up South Sudan.
