Statement from the South Sudan Council of Churches (SSCC) on the deteriorating situation in South Sudan

South Sudanese Church leaders note that both individual leaders and SSCC have made similar statements before. However, their words have not been heeded. The statement now challenges the military and political leaders to hear the message of the church leaders which is claimed to echo the voice of the ordinary citizens of South Sudan. SSCC wishes to serve notice that the churces will not idle. If their statements are not heeded, they will take more proactive steps to try to achieve peace and reconciliation.

The statement is available as PDF.
