Members of a group named the Acholi Religious Leaders Peace Initiative [ARLPI], have been invited by their South Sudanese Counterparts to share their experience on the contributing work they have done to end the war in Northern Uganda.
Addressing journalists in Gulu yesterday, ARLPI Chairman Retired Bishop, Nelson Onono-Onweng said their South Sudanese colleagues, the Inter-religious Council of Eastern Equitoria invited them for a benchmarking meeting that will be themed, “Amazing impact of unity of religious leaders.’’
Bishop Onono will lead a seven member team that will include Gulu Archbishop, Dr. Bishop John Baptist Odama, Acholi Khadi, Sheik Musa Khelil among others.
Onono added that the meeting will bring together leaders to share experience of interfaith and also formally establish cooperation between ARLPI and inter-religious Council of Eastern Equitoria.
The ARLPI Chairman said they will ask the South Sudanese to provide leadership that will bring Glory to God, reiterating that both the South Sudanese leaders and people are children of God and don’t deserve to suffer.
According to ARLPI, the meeting is hoped to bring insight to the religious leaders of Eastern Equitoria on how they can contribute to ending the current conflict in South Sudan and how they can help internally displaced people and refugees of South Sudan.
