Juba, 14 November, 2019 / 1:16 am (ACI Africa).
As the countdown of the 100-day extension of the formation of a unity government in South Sudan got underway on Tuesday, November 12, the Catholic Church in the world’s youngest nation set out to distribute two sets of booklets containing “factual” information about the peace process including the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan.
“The booklets basically cover the discussions, the root causes of the problem, the discussion among the parties involved, their positions, their disagreements, their gaps, including what has been agreed on and what has not been agreed on,” the author of the booklets, Isaac Kungur Kenyi who serves as Church Parliamentary Liaison person of South Sudan’s Catholic Secretariat told ACI Africa correspondent Tuesday, November 12 in Juba.
“There has been a lot of misinformation or disinformation in the country,” Mr. Kenyi said, hinting to the reason for the publication.
“I was delegated by Catholic Church to follow up the peace process, and that is why in February, they created the Church Parliamentary Liaison and my job is to follow up what is happening in the government,” he disclosed to ACI Africa correspondent.
He explained referencing the content of the booklets, “I gave factual information with dates, with places and those who are involved in it, so this is what I think should be more inspiring for the person to read.”
