‘Live together or perish’

Author : | Published: Monday, July 27, 2015

The former minister of Justice, John Luk Jok, has called on the South Sudanese to ‘accept to live together or perish’.

Mr Luk was a member of the group previously known as the Former Political Detainees.

He returned to Juba last month with some members of the group as part of the implementation of the Arusha Agreement.

Mr. Luk said South Sudan will be a country South Sudanese wanted to build if people accept themselves.

“A country where people disappear because of their ethnic background cannot be one country, one people,” Mr Luk said.

“We can’t pretend that we are one people and we are doing the opposite.”

The politician was addressing hundreds of people attending a prayer in Juba on Saturday.

The prayer was held in memory of former employee of Ministry of Finance, Reath Thon Wakow, who disappeared on the 16th of December 2013 and is presumed dead.

Chief Justice Chan Reech Madut attended the occasion. He called on South Sudanese to love one another and stop revenge killings.

Mr Reec told the gathering that people should stop the bloodshed and be celebrating their unique cultures.

For his part, the former SPLA Chief of General Staff, James Hoth Mai, said South Sudanese must forgive one another and end revenge killings if the country is to achieve peace.
