Tensions in South Sudan are political, not religious or ethnic, Church leaders say
Catholic World News - December 20, 2013
Christian leaders in South Sudan have united in a plea for peace, as clashes between rival groups threaten the fragile security of the newly independent African country.
Bishop Erkulano Lodu Tombe of Yei and his Presbyterian counterpart, Bishop Elias Taban, urged soldiers not to be misled by politicians who are inciting ethnic violence. The conflicts in South Sudan today, they said, are “political differences” between rival factions, and not religious conflicts or quarrels between the Dinka and Nuer tribes.
