This comes at the time when the country is witnessing a new beginning with the return of the opposition and the formation of South Sudan’s Transitional Government of National Unity (TGoNU).

While we are celebrating this positive and important milestone in implementation of the Agreement on Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (ARCISS), there are still a number of civilians and political detainees behind bars at the National Security Service headquarters detention center and across the country.

This includes the deputy Governor of the newly formed Wau State, Andrea Dominic, and the journalist, George Livio Bahara, Martin Augustino, Fr. Justin Wanawilla, Emilo Paul, and Mohammed Wol. These are a few more who are in the National Security Services (NSS) in Juba. They were arrested in Wau and transferred to Juba.

We are appealing to the President and the transitional government of national unity to exercise the same clemency, shown to the former governor of Western Equatoria, and to release all the political detainees as a good gesture in the spirit of peace, healing, and reconciliation.

GaPPSS calls upon the TGoNU, under the leadership of the President Salva Kiir Mayardit and the First Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar Teny, to commit to bringing stability, build trust and embark on the process of healing and reconciliation.

God Bless South Sudan
