The pontiff, alongside the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and the Moderator of the Church of Scotland, Dr. Ian Greenfields came to Juba, South Sudan on February 3rd.

During his stay, the Roman Catholic leader met with President Salva Kiir, the clergy, and internally displaced persons before conducting a holy prayer on Sunday.

The Pope in his last remarks offered blessings to women who he described as the future of the country, but are yet the most sufferers of the consequences so of the civil war.

He said as he goes back to the Vatican, he leaves behind hope and peace in South Sudan.

The religious leader prior to his conclusive remarks called on South Sudan leaders to stop pitying tribes against one another and desist from injustices and corruption dealings.
