South Sudan Government Soldiers Burned Down Catholic Cathedral In Lafon

Theresa_Kator_NDLite_777x437August 18, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —–During the latest round of violence in and around Juba, government soldiers burned down a catholic church in Lafon.

Speaking to South Sudan in Focus, Bishop Santo Laku Pio said it is better to be dead than to be alive in South Sudan.

Condemning immoralities and war crimes carried out by the government soldiers, Bishop Laku said majority of South Sudanese are living in total fear including government officials.

The Bishop reiterates that over 75% of government officials are appointed by the president and his inner circle and therefore they do not represent or speak for the people.

Bishop Laku said many people who are now in the camps are seeking refuge for their own safety from their own government.

Asked of why he is speaking out in Juba and whether he fears for his own life, he said his life is not more important than the lives of thousands who have been molestered, killed and their property destroyed by the regime in power.

Although many politicians have been attending masses at Kator Cathedral in Juba, Bishop Laku always stands for what he believes is right.

On the regional intervention, he said the IGAD-Plus and the UNSC have now realized their responsibility although they are a bit late.

He strongly stressed that South Sudan government has failed to protect its own people and left all responsibility on the shoulders of the United Nations and therefore UNSC has a right to impose decisions on South Sudan to save lives.

  • baak baaak, tolio and the jci (jenge council of idiots feels the defeat from the IO. This made them to turn against any church in the country. They have been fighting jenge emanuel church in Juba.

    Right now they know very well that they are completely defeated by their failure to harm the peace lover Dr. Riak Machar. Their toothless mouths are burning in hell. tolio becames so angry and begin to talk of Tambura and the KOKORA TIME. Let me be very open to you. The KOKORA of Tambura’s time was so nice to you because it was only Mundari who thaught light and easy lessons. The real KOKORA which is going rain on you is so different. It WILL BE A KOKORA THAT YOU AND YOUR COMING GENERATIONS WILL NEVER FORGET

  • What the so-called TomfooleryGatazz talking about! You need a matchbox to burn yourself,otherwise shut up your little mouth.

    Thank you Bishop Laku for being the brave and the man of God in the country. Everyone see the problem, but nobody want to speak out for the fear that they would be killed by this government in power. We have collective responsibilities, as the sovereign nation and the responsibility of the national government is to uphold the constitution and protect its citizens. Now, the government has failed and left the responsibility of its own national to the United Nation and it is the duty for the United Nation to save lives of the peoples of south Sudan from its own government, so it is right that the solution must impose on this government to go and leave the people of south Sudan alone.

  • baaaak the cow. I know you do not understand because you are an animal. but the way we pick the MTN who wants escape our equatorian towns gives you a clear answer. The more you want us to burn ourselves, the more the MTN are taken down one by one

  • Sir. habby

    You put it right Tuggo by talking about the MTN bro, I wish bishop had mentioned it in his speech which he declined. This means every one in south Sudan is a killer including you equatorians in pretense. Why is bishop bias to blame one party when all are murderers? Why do you guys make too much alarm when we kill one to two of you while we kept quite after murdering many of us in your MTN saga? Very stupid you Don’t be so brave in media, I know when u meet these people you are raising your ugly voice to, u will shy down. This is our time for revenge and there’s nothing you will do about it. Your weak spiritual bishop need to keep his mouth shut, only in equatorial where men of God take sides. You are now allowed to abuse because that’s the best I have seen in your comments.
