Canon Clement Janda, the South Sudan refugee’s representative to the peace talks in Addis Ababa, on Monday May 21, 2018 said it’s their time to be granted peace.
He said, South Sudan’s warring parties at the peace talks did not discuss the key issues facing refugees who are currently living in appalling conditions in neighbouring countries.
It’s my great concern as representative of the refugees when I see my people suffer in the refugee camps, Janda added.
The religious leaders revealed that the warring parties focus on power sharing and government positions and ignore the suffering of millions of people in refugee camps.
Jada said, the biggest problem is security. “We just want to go to our homes and be safe to cultivate and to rear our cattle and goats and live in peace, so we want security,” he said.
Millions of South Sudanese are in refugee camps spread across six countries, the Central African Republic (CAR), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda, following recurrent conflicts in the country.
