Yei, 29th May 2018. The work of the Grassroots Peace Initiative is not effective in Yei River State, says the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Yei.
Bishop Erkolano Lodu Tombe encourages the initiative to do tangible work to bring peace to villages so as to put the people together to denounce war.
We want to be good to our army and let the army be good to us, this is the kind of internal peace we are talking of building the trust between civilians and the army stresses, the Bishop.
He calls on the Grassroots Peace Initiative to join the Reconcile International and the South Sudan Council of Churches for the struggle of bringing peace.
The catholic prelate calls for the removal of the security forces along Lutaya road so that people can return to the area which is now abandoned for two years.
The bishop was speaking on Friday during the commemoration of the second anniversary of Sister Veronica Teresa Rockova in Lutaya.
