Author : | Published: Thursday, February 5, 2015

South Sudanese and Ugandan church officials have urged the two countries to demarcate their borders to reduce land disputes.

They met at a workshop in Kajo-Keji yesterday. The forum was organized by the Sudan Council of Churches and the United Nations Mission in South Sudan.

The workshop was to prepare the people of Moyo district and Kajo-Keji for a peace and reconciliation.

There have been clashes between Moyo (Uganda) and Kajo-keji (South Sudan) residents over the border land. In September 2014, over 50 people were killed and properties destroyed over the land.

Hundreds of families were also displaced by the violence.

“One of the first agenda was South Sudan government should demarcate South Sudan and Uganda border because they say that it was one of the major issues that causes conflict between Moyo district and Kajo –keji county,” reported Kaja John, Eye Radio’s correspondent in the county.

Residents were also urged to form clubs aimed at educating members about importance of peaceful coexistence.

The workshop was attended by boma leaders, religion leaders and some businessmen from both Moyo and kajo Kaje counties.
