The minister made the remarks while addressing a public rally in Wau town.

She said children from the Greater Upper Nile region have been badly affected by the conflict and this forced many out of schools.

The minister appealed to the youth not to get involved in rebel activities, saying it has caused massive destruction to the country.

“We need stability of the country where children and women are free from arm or any form of violence, a country where children walk to schools and ordinary citizens walk to good hospital,” said Arop.

South Sudan’s civil war has forced over one million children to flee the country while another million are internally displaced, United Nations agencies say, while officials have warned that the future of an entire generation remains at risk.

Children reportedly comprise of 62 percent of the more than 1.8 million South Sudanese refugees who have arrived in Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Sudan.

Over 75,000 of the children are reportedly alone or without their families.

    She look like an Arab. Nadia, you said peace is being implemented by Taban. What are you talking about now? you should just announce new development plan for Wau or admit that Peace has already dead since July 2016 and start advocating for peace like the rest of SS.

    The youth of South Sudan should encourage ministers to follow the constitution instead of acting to enrich themselves through corruption.
    Ministers should promote peace instead of supporting fake military adventures to suppress and imprison or murder alternative voices.

    @ Sunday Junup, Midit Mitot and Mr Point
    Thanks Guys, you did hit the nails on the head... by then (during the implementation of ARCSS) when it was said that Wau should also have cantonment site, the Gov ran there and open big mouth that there were no rebels in Wau that those were just bandits, now the truths have surface.
