UNMISS educates Twic County residents in Warrap on revitalized peace deal

For citizens to galvanize, we must see action at the national level

JUBA, South Sudan, September 27, 2021 / APO Group / –

The Civil Affairs Division of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) continues to work with all stakeholders in Warrap State to promote the provisions contained in the revitalized 2018 Peace Agreement.

In this regard, the United Nations peacekeeping mission organized a two-day workshop for women and youth representatives, traditional leaders and community members in Turalei payam [administrative division] of Twic County. The main objective of the forum: To sensitize the inhabitants of Twic County to the need to implement the provisions of the Peace Agreement, to ensure a reduction in conflicts and to motivate all individuals to play their part in the struggle ongoing for lasting peace across the country. .

At the end of the discussions, the participants expressed their appreciation for the in-depth sensitization and called on the government to fully implement the peace agreement in letter and spirit so that lasting peace prevails in the country.

“After attending each session over the past two days, I am determined to play my role fully and mobilize my young comrades to make sure we try to avoid conflicts between us,” said Daniel Malual Juac, a representative of young people who participated in the workshop.

“If young people avoid violence and decide to unite, there can be no greater agents of positive change and social harmony in South Sudan,” added Daniel.

For Achol Deng, 26, it was the first time she had learned about the Peace Agreement, particularly the 35% representation of women at all levels of decision-making.

“We had vaguely heard that there was a peace agreement and a ceasefire agreement in place, but we didn’t know much more than that,” Achol reveals.

“What is very interesting for me is that women have been included in the revitalized Accord and that is something that makes me very happy. Women are the backbone of communities and families in South Sudan and we have been among the most affected by the civil war. This provision recognizes that we bring unique perspectives to challenges, can overcome obstacles to peace and must have a say in decisions that directly impact us, ”she adds.

For his part, Piol Buoi Ariath, Minister of State for Peacebuilding, called on international partners to continue working with the government to give momentum to the stagnant peace process, noting that critical chapters such as the implementation transitional security arrangements remain unfinished after nearly three years. . This, according to the minister, has an impact on the life of every citizen.

“For citizens to galvanize, we need to see action at the national level. Peace does not come about overnight, but if the people of this country see real political will on the part of their leaders, it will be a morale booster and they in turn will assume their collective responsibility to coexist peacefully. with each other, ”he said. .
