‘Put people first before personal interests’

Author : | Published: Monday, October 27, 2014

A South Sudanese lawyer is urging the government and the SPLM-SPLA in Opposition to negotiate in good faith and end the on-going conflict.

He urged them to put the interest of the people of South Sudan above their personal interests.

Agok Makur told Eye Radio’s Dawn program this morning that the government’s delegation and the SPLM-SPLA in Opposition’s delegation who are in Addis Ababa should speed up the peace process.

“What is obvious is that the people of South Sudanese have paid a huge price for this war, their children and relatives have been displaced and others killed,” Mr Makur said.

“As such, peace is now a real demand of the people of South Sudan. Our appeal to the people who are leading these negotiations in Addis Ababa is that they should put the people of South Sudan first before their personal interests.”

The phase one of the seventh round of South Sudan peace talks starts in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, today.
