South Sudanese citizens laud Nepal’s peace process, conflict management
KATHMANDU: A South Sudanese citizen, Kim has expressed his happiness over liberal aspects of and the cooperative role played by all three governments in resolving problems at the local level. “There is participation of the three governments (central, provincial and local) of Nepal in resolving problems through talks. On the contrary, our government is not like this. It always tries to maintain a considerable distance from its citizen,” he said at an interaction organised here on Sunday by local organisation Sambad Kunja.
He also termed his government as autocratic. Recalling a talk show entitled dialogue with the people, which was launched in 2014 by the South Sudanese President, but closed shortly allegedly fearing of exposure of its autocratic nature, he said the government is advancing to restrict people’s rights of expression. A team of 27 South Sudanese citizens including Kim is here to research into Nepal’s peace process and conflict management.
Likewise, his other 26 friends attending the event lauded Nepal’s peace process and conflict management. The team leader Krish said learning about peace process and war management was an opportunity for citizens of a country reeling under war.
Another team member John described his country as being indifferent to the participation of women and youths in politics.
