Women And Youth Pushing For Peace In South Sudan


In South Sudan, ever since the conflicts going as far back as 2013, a number of agreements have been signed to promote peace in the region but sadly the terms haven’t been honored to satisfactory levels. The youth have been the main victims of these conflicts with either sides drafting them to fight for their cause, most times without a choice.

Today the youth of South Sudan are calling for President Salva Kiir and his former Vice President Riek Machar to commit to the peace deal particularly to the call for a unified army.
