Juba, 10 November, 2020 / 9:20 pm (ACI Africa).
A Catholic nun in South Sudan has expressed concerns over insecurity perpetrated by those only identified as “unknown gunmen,” calling on the political leaders in the East-Central African country to find identities of these attackers and to bring them to book.
“I have a great concern about these unknown gunmen and I wonder why they are unknown when they do a lot of destruction in broad daylight and have led to a lot of destruction and loss of lives,” Sr. Rebecca Alioru who offers lectures in English, literature and drama at the Catholic University of South Sudan (CUSS) said at a public lecture on Saturday, November 7.
The event was organized by the Justice and Peace Institute to mark the 10th anniversary of 101 Days of Catholic prayer for a peaceful South Sudan referendum in 2010.
The member of the congregation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (SHS) said the fact that the identity of the attackers is kept in the dark compromises all efforts put in place to realize growth in South Sudan.
