The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Malakal has commended the government and all stakeholders such as the church, and traditional authorities for restoring stability in Upper Nile State.  

Speaking exclusively to Eye Radio Wednesday, May 3, 2023, Bishop Stephen Nyodho says the area has witnessed relative peace compared to previous months.

Two weeks ago, Bishop Nyodho visited different counties in Jonglei and Upper Nile to preach the message of peace, reconciliation, and unity among different communities in the area.

The religious leader prayed for relative stability to continue in Upper Nile amid the state’s influx of returnees and refugees.

He commended the church, traditional authorities and the government for restoring stability in the State.

Bishop Nyodho hopes that the tranquillity will continue to be observed.

“We thank God that there has been some calm in Malakal and also many parts of Upper Nile state there is bit calm, said Bishop Nyodho.

“We thank God that a month ago there was a big peace initiative done by the churches in Nasir and Ulang counties, and there have been a lot of changes in those areas and up to now the situation is calm. We thank God for that,

“We hope it continues that way in Upper Nile State and especially the area from Malakal up to Renk, there is a lot of calm and it is good news.”

Bishop Nyodho urged the authorities to restore the rule of law and order in some areas affected by the violence.
