Sudan faith forum urges final peace

"The momentum must be continued"
Delegates of the Sudan Ecumenical Forum (SEF) from Africa, Europe and North America have hailed recent peace protocols signed between the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement and the government of Sudan, but they would like to see a final agreement clinched.

SEF chairperson Bishop Kevin Dowling, a South African Catholic, said the forum, meeting June 13-16 in Nairobi, was delighted that there is now a chance for a just and sustainable peace in southern Sudan. “We are concerned the momentum must be continued,” Dowling said after the forum’s assembly. He urged the protagonists to sign a final and full peace agreement in addition to the protocols signed May 26 in order to end Africa’s longest war.
