A South Sudanese bishop has declared 21 days of prayer and fasting for peace in his strife-torn nation, one of the world’s poorest, according to Anisa Radio, which is part of the Sudan Catholic Radio Network.
Bishop Eduardo Hiiboro Kussala of Tombura-Yambio also said that he would solicit alms to assist the 365,000 South Sudanese residents who have fled their homes in the wake of fighting between two ethnic groups, the Dinka and the Nuer.
