King Atoroba Peni Rikito in a press release, is urging the People of South Sudan to embrace peace and have the spirit of reconciliation and forgiveness as they prepare to receive His Holiness Pope Francis.

“I am calling upon people to Embrace the values of moderation, to fulfil the impression of knowing one another and to raise awareness of togetherness” King Atoroba stressed.

“This year is the year of blessings, all what we can do as faithful and followers of God is to embrace the spirit of Reconciliation and Forgiveness in South Sudan” His Majesty added.

Pope Francis is expected to visit South Sudan early next month before proceeding to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
