Yei, 31 March, 2023 / 9:00 pm (ACI Africa).
There is need for politicians serving in the South Sudanese government to render services to the people of God in the East-Central African nation under the guidance and influence of values drawn from their respective religious affiliations, especially truth, a Catholic Bishop in the country has said.
In a Wednesday, March 29 message shared with ACI Africa, Bishop Alex Lodiong Sakor Eyobo of South Sudan’s Yei Diocese calls upon South Sudanese politicians not to compromise their respective faith values.
“My brothers in political life, we are happy for your presence in the government both at State and national levels. We would like you to carry the values of your faith into the government,” Bishop Lodiong says.
Politicians in South Sudan, he adds, “should not compromise the values of faith in your service within the government.”
“Let the values of your faith influence your service within the government,” the South Sudanese Catholic Bishop emphasizes, and continues, “Let this value of faith influence the decisions of the government.”
