RJMEC to train teachers on peace dissemination in S. Sudan

While officially opening the workshop in Juba on Thursday, RJMEC Deputy of Staff in charge of Strategy, Dr. Thomson Fontaine, said the revitalized peace agreement provides an opportunity for the country to emerge from years of war.

“It is encouraging to see that since the signing of the Agreement in September 2018, though the progress is slow, the permanent ceasefire has held across the country and strides made in its implementation,” he added.

The workshop under the theme, "The peace we have, the peace we share’ brought together 90 teachers representing various schools in South Sudan".

Fontaine said RJMEC will continue to encourage the South Sudanese political actors with the support of the region and the international community, to put an end to the conflict and lay the foundation for peace in South Sudan.

He encouraged the teachers to play a part in contributing towards sustainable peace in the country.

“Your privileged position as teachers and mentors of the future generation, gives you the power to disseminate the objective of the peace Agreement and to rally the South Sudanese society to support the Agreement," said Fontaine.

    Misplaced resources and priorities, wasted time and foolish idiots doing something at the wrong time. Why primary and secondary teachers and not field commanders, political leaders directly involved in the crisis? How can a teacher who has a pencil and not AK-47 influence peace dissemination? How should hungry pupils and students promote peace when they are victims and not perpetrators?

      The moment foolish Africans wear suits, eye glasses and begin to mimick "khawajat" and yet never think outside the box, that’s not only disgusting but reminds one of self-made idiots. How could RJMEC not insist on having the armed groups lectured on promoting peace and unashamedly try that with primary and secondary teachers? Other areas have no functioning schools and no teachers but armed youth.

        watch your language fool. Mr. Salva Kiir said ten (10) years ago that "white people wear black trousers, black coats and white ties, and those rubbishes doesn’t make them (white people anyone)". I think that is probably why the evils have been ’trailing our country and our people’ all the times. Mr. jubaone, Mr. Salva Kiir took up arms in ’anyanya one’ when he was just ’a tiny boy’>>>

          You jienge kaffir and idiot. Since you aryan jienges stopped running around naked and started wearing chobong (half jellabiya), you thought you were close to the jellaba. Now you’re even wearing suits and neckties or, even a "tagia" like the kiirminal to look like a cowboy. This has not made you any near civilized. Just the ordinary jienges.
