The official made the remarks while officially opening a workshop attended by at least 30 organized forces and civilians in Wau State on Friday.

“Let us concentrate on positive things that can make our people live together and we provide good security to our community,” he said.

The minister cautioned the workshop participants against using hate speeches and spreading harmful propaganda that incites people.

“Sometimes we live our professional job and we engage in community differences and spread rumors and negative things which disintegrate our people. We want our people to come together to live in peace and coexistence,” stressed Madut.

South Sudan’s civil war, which broke out in December 2013, has killed tens of thousands of people, displaced some 3 million and destroyed the country’s economy.

In September last year, however, South Sudan’s arch-foes signed a revitalized peace agreement to end the country’s civil war.

    Thank you very much Mr. Madut Chan, your government officials and the great citizens of Western Bhar El Gazelles. Peace is what among all South Sudanese people is the way forward. The ’divided house’ doesn’t stand every South Sudanese knows this simple fact. And people in authority should know better. South Sudan security and stability depends on every South Sudanese nothing less. Once again continue doing good jobs fellows. Peace from village to village town to town until all South Sudanese are covered with the message of peace and benefits of having peace and move around our vast country without fear of being harmed by anyone are going to follow.
