Payinjiar commissioner urges Lake and Unity state citizens to peacefully co-exist

November 29, 2015 (YIROL) – The commissioner of Payinjiar county has called for calm and peaceful co-existence among citizens in neighbouring Lake and Unity states.

William Nyuon Jok, in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune said it was time for South Sudanese to implement the peace agreement, calling on the internally displaced persons to unite and work for the signed deal.

Jok toured the border counties between Lake and Unity states in an effort to reach those displaced and prepare them for the implementation of the recently signed peace accord.

The commissioner urged the residents of Payinjiar who are currently in Lake state to
continue living in harmony with those in their neighborhoods for the sake of peace.

He advised the IDPs to keep strong relations with other communities, saying the current crisis should no divide them, but allow them stand together as one nation and people.

“This peace agreement is important because it will enable you to go back to your homes in Payinjiar county so that you start rebuilding your lives”, said the commissioner.

“The government will now redouble its effort to deliver social services such as health and education after signing this agreement with the opposition,” he added..

He warned those still carrying out banditry and cattle raiding to refrain from activities as people preparing for lasting peace to restore calmness among the South Sudanese.
