Tuesday, June 19, 2018 (PW) —With many wondering whether peace will ever comes from the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa after many phases of peace talk bear little progresses.

It is possible for Peace to come from Ethiopia, the 1972 Peace agreement that enable Southerners taste and felt the fruits of development and citizenship within the Sudanese societies came from Addis Ababa.

The 10 years of peaceful Sudan from 1972 to 1982 had left big footprints of development that are still visible and will be available for generations to come.

What matter is not the location of the peace talks but the readiness and responses from the parties to the agreement.

Any suggestive change toward Peace Talk locality, participants and mediating partners cannot favour the current situation of South Sudan and the prolific progress that has been made by IGAD.

Parties involve in the mediation of the conflict are less to be blamed than the parties themselves.

Our living God has given us all the instructions on how we can go on with our earthly challenges; the creator instructed mankind in the books of Mathew 7:7”Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you’’ and in Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

Those fatherly directives are what all South Sudanese must turn to in order to change the pitiless face of their suffering.

South Sudan Leaders must all turn to God for forgiveness and guidance.

Throughout history benevolent leaders have often exhibited a certain type of behavioral or political restraint, which in turn has often resulted in the establishment of permanent peace and economic growth through various forms of agreements or peace treaties.

Such behavioral restraint has often resulted into the de-escalation of conflicts hence leading to national healing, reconciliation and progress.

The avoidance of war or violent is often the result of compromise, thoughtful and active listening which may tend to enable greater genuine of mutual understanding and action.

All must give peace a chance.
