Tombura-Yambio, 04 July, 2023 / 4:05 pm (ACI Africa).
Young people in South Sudan need to strive for values that positively contribute to a good future, the Bishop of the country’s Catholic Diocese of Tombura-Yambio (CDTY) has said.
In his Sunday, July 2 homily at St Theresa’s Cathedral of South Sudan’s Juba Archdiocese, Bishop Edward Hiiboro Kussala highlighted some of the values that the youth in the world’s youngest country need to embrace.
“Our young people need to have values that are good, the values of peace, respect, and hard work, and avoid those things that will ruin their future,” Bishop Hiiboro said.
He added, “Youth are the majority in this country and the world; that’s why we as elders are looking up to you for a better future for the nation.”
The South Sudanese Catholic Bishop said young people are sometimes “misled” by the protracted violent conflicts in sections of South Sudan, going after issues that do not contribute to a better future for them.
