Need for S Sudanese-oriented solutions

Author : | Published: Monday, October 10, 2016

The only way to restore lasting peace in the country is to have a South Sudanese-derived solution to the crisis, a religious leader has said.

South Sudan has been witnessing deadly incidents of violent conflict since December 2013. This has led to destruction of lives and property.

Tens of Thousands of people have been killed, according to the UN. Millions have been uprooted from their homes.

The Dean of Philosophical Studies at St. Paul Seminary, Father Denima Emmanuel, believes that the leaders have the means to stop the suffering of the people in the country.

He was speaking to Eye Radio on the commemoration of the St Daniel Comboni Day, which is celebrated annually on the 10th of October.

Father Emmanuel says St. Comboni’s main agenda was “Save Africa through Africans”.

He said his dream would be effective if South Sudanese stand together to bring peace in the country.

“We are all brothers and sisters; with peace, we can go ahead and take our destiny in our hands,” Fr Emmanuel stressed.

“The true solution to this country’s [problems] will not come from outside. We, ourselves, should work very hard to restore peace so that we may go ahead.”

Saint Daniel Comboni was born in 1831 in Italy and Died on 10 October 1881 in Sudan’s Capital, Khartoum.

In 1849 he devoted his life to Africa after hearing of the suffering of the people.

St. Comboni built several schools in parts of Sudan as part of his mission to use Africans to save Africa.
