South Sudanese living in Bidibidi refugee settlement in Yumbe District of Uganda’s West Nile region have asked the South Sudan holdout groups to join the government so that everlasting peace would be achieved in the Country.

Speaking to No. 1 Citizen Daily Newspaper yesterday, Duku Felisto, a Block Leader in Block C said it will not be easy for refugees to return to their home country if the leaders in South Sudan do not work for national interest.

“Trust me, refugees will not return to their Country if violence is heard in every part of the Country,’’ Duku said.

“They are talking about election but majority of South Sudanese are in foreign countries, who will vote,’’ he asked.

Duku noted that there are parties who do not want to see peace in South Sudan just to fail the government.

“They may think it’s a pride if they kill innocent people,’’ he wondered.

The block leader asked President Kiir to have dialogue with his fellow rival leaders for him to achieve his dreams.

Duku congratulated the President for graduating the unified forces last week. He asked concerned authorities to have close supervision of the army.
