    National dialogue can only be successful if matters of security are met. The people of South Sudan are afraid of expressing themselves due to the ongoing killings.

    “Our voices must be heard! ”

    A government that hides to constructive criticism is a government that is willing to bring change to its citizens.No one is above the rule of law and freedom of speech is our right.

    The role of women in peacebuilding in national dialogue can only be achieved through promotion engagement in decision-making processes and leadership position in peace programs.

    The youth should be engaged also through prior consent on ongoing national dialogue processes. The youth of South Sudan are being victimised, discriminated, and used against each other for war purposes. I strongly condemn propaganda that promotes ethnic division and tribalism. We ask the government to prevent the acts of dividing the youths and its citizens based on politics that are not for common good or peace of South Sudan. Self-interest is not the way forward for South Sudan!
