A one-day peace conference that brought together elders, youths and women
groups of Gogrial state on Sunday, ended with a recommitment to end
fighting and reconcile the deeply divided and feuding Apuk and Aguok

Paramount Chief Nyal Chan Nyal told Radio Tamazuj on Monday that the
one-day conference was attended by all constitutional post holders from
Gogrial state at the national government.

Nyal said after a meeting in Yei last week, the elders resolved to end the
fighting between the two communities and deploy security forces at border
points to prevent any escalation of violence.

“The third item is the formation of peace committee to disseminate messages
of peace, reconciliation, unity and forgiveness.  The fourth item is
conducting disarmament, the fifth is forming boundary committee to identify
and delineate and the sixth item is to identify the ring leaders, establish
the court for trial and determine the mechanism of compensation,” Nyal said.

For his part, Gogrial State Governor Gregory Deng Kuac called for peace
between the two communities. He said, “Instead of unnecessary criticism,
let us unite and give the necessary support and guidance to the leadership
of Gogrial State at various levels to rescue our communities in

He called on parents and elders in the state to take the responsibility of
preaching peace and unity to the younger generations. “We should keep
telling our youths to choose bright future and avoid interrupting other
people who are moving toward the process of bright future,” he said
