Transcending the Shadow of violence: No one else but only South Sudanese people can bring peace and reconciliation in South Sudan
By Daniel Juol Nhomngek, Kampala, Uganda
August 30, 2016 (SSB) —- On Friday, August, 26, 2016, I attended the South Sudanese Dialogue entitled: Transcending the Shadow of violence: Alternatives for Fostering Inclusive State Building and Sustainable Peace in South Sudan. The Dialogue was entitled: THE SOUTH SUDANESE DIALOGUE.
In that Dialogue, those who attended were expected to give their views of the alternatives on how to bring peace in South Sudan. However, the whole process was not a dialogue as stated in the title.
The so-called South Sudanese Peace Dialogue was not conducted in the manner of which the real dialogues are conducted. It was disgusting as it was a kind of mob dialogue which was intended just to confirm certain conspiracy views agreed prior to the conference.
The dialogue was in fact intended to confirm the prior view agreed by the moderator and others that foreign troops should be sent to South Sudan. I came to realize this fact during the process of lecture that was camouflaged in the so-called South Sudanese Dialogue.
