“We have come home finally -0ur group which is known FDs, as a result of the peace agreement that was signed and finalized in Ethiopia,” Mr Luk told reporters.

“What is left for us is to implement what we have agreed, and therefore it requires that all of us are in South Sudan because this is the place and this is where our people are, so that peace can prevail in our country.”
