South Sudan bishop analyzes conflict

July 15, 2016

In a recent op-ed piece in The Guardian, a South Sudanese bishop explained that the conflict there runs far deeper than a dispute between supporters to two politicians.

“What we are dealing with is a conflict deeply rooted in complex political and ethnic divisions that didn’t disappear the moment South Sudan came into being on 9 July 2011,” said Bishop Eduardo Hiiboro Kussala of Tombura-Yambio. “Churches represent perhaps the only ‘institution’ that transcends ethnic and regional differences.”
