South Sudan Council of Churches

The South Sudan Council of Churches (SSCC) has released a statement marking the tenth anniversary of the nation's independence. The statement laments the "wasted decade," and the way ongoing conflicts have disrupted peace and socio-economic development. The statement points to the 2018 Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS) and the dialogues between non-signatories of the R-ARCSS and the transitional government, facilitated by Sant'Egidio, as the country's best hope, and pledges continued dedication of the SSCC to peacebuilding and reconciliation.
