Achol Chier Rehan, head of the ruling party’s branch office in Gogrial county, said unity was paramount, if development was to be attained in the region.

Rehan, a former minister of parliamentary affairs in Warrap, told Sudan Tribune a mobilisation campaign was underway to foster unity and reconciliation for peaceful co-existence.

“Our key message was simple, very simple. We urged our people to embrace peace and unity for the good of our country, because there is no reason for us to fight ourselves, after all we are one people, one country. This is our slogan. We did not fight the war of liberation struggle as tribes or regions but as South Sudanese", Rehan said Wednesday.

"Our diversity was our strength. This was the message we told them", she added.

Rehan explained that membership registration starts with those who are 18 years and above, provided they have shown interest to become members the country’s governing party.

Ariech Mayar Ariech, a state lawmaker, described the function as "friendlier", saying it was attended by the state minister of information, Paul Dhel Gum and his physical infrastructure counterpart, Mayar Deng Mayar. Also in attendance were the Gogrial West county commissioner and all secretaries in various Payams under the territorial jurisdiction of the area.

“Our messages were unified. We told our people that we are for peace and the growth of the SPLM because SPLM is the only party which had managed to achieve the dream of the people of South Sudan", Ariech told Sudan Tribune.

"So instead of dividing ourselves as members of the SPLM, we should live in peace as one people in unity, support each other and share our ideas and grievances, especially our political leaders in the state and in the country at large for us to attain development," he added.

The legislator, however, stressed that leaders should foster unity, team work and reconciliation in order to promote peace, development and social harmony in society.

"The unity of our people is paramount because unity, team work and reconciliation are the only ways to make peace and make us succeed in all the development challenges and other efforts”, he said.

At the occasion, however, several speakers reportedly called for peace and unity among not only the local people, but also within the ruling party leadership at all levels of the country.

    Can there be peace without justice?

    Can SPLM leaders in Warrap effectively promote peace and reconciliation without condemning those SPLM leaders in Juba who arranged the December massacre of citizens that started the civil war and the cycle of tribal revenge murders?

      As you just mention that we fought together as one people but when it comes to enjoying the fruit it is only you the Dinka, one tribe enjoying. You want a south sudan where one tribe eat resources of all. No it will not happen again, we are not fools. Any man who get fool twice is a fool himself. you warrap will cry soon. Fire will knock your doors soon.
