The people of Sudan and South Sudan have been urged to resolve all their differences through dialogue and to respect one another.
Speaking to Catholic Radio Network (CRN) in Juba in mid-Sept. after attending a two-day meeting in preparation for the 19th plenary Assembly of Association for Member Episcopal Conferences of Eastern Africa (AMECEA) to be held in July 2018 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, AMECEA Secretary-General Rev. Fr. Ferdinand Lugonzo called on the political leaders in the two countries to embrace the spirit of reconciliation with sincerity because revenge cannot resolve the conflicts.
Fr. Lugonzo urged Sudan and South Sudanese political leaders to follow the process of discussion to alleviate the citizens from suffering.
General Secretaries from Episcopal Conferences in their meeting also discussed how members of AMECEA can organize the synod for the youth to discuss on how the Church in Africa can celebrate it to promote faith and vocation.
