Church urges public not to buy loot

Author : | Published: Monday, July 18, 2016

A Church leader in Juba is urging the public not to buy food that was looted from people’s houses because they are what he calls “cursed items”.

When violence erupted in Juba last week, there were reports of looting, including of the main warehouse of the World Food Program.

“I know there are many unholy things that are going around including unholy food and unholy looted items in the market and they will come very cheap,” said Bishop Dr Isaiah Majok Dau, General Overseer of Sudan and South Sudan Pentecostal Churches, who was addressing worshippers during a prayer for peace at Juba Christian Center on Saturday.

He urged the public to be aware of looted items, which could be sold at lower prices than normal prices.

“Somebody somewhere is crying that their things have been taken. Stand firm; if you are to die by thunder, die holy – die when you are holy.”

Bishop Isaiah Majok is a member of the faith-based group that participated in the IGAD-led mediation of the peace negotiations, which led to the signing of the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan.
