Tuesday 22 March 2016, by SIGNIS

Juba, March 22nd, 2016 (Amecea/Fides). 12 community radio stations across South Sudan created a radio network to spread peace messages in the country.

According to Radio Bakhita, “the initiative brought together 45 citizen Journalists for training to gather information to the community radio stations in their respective states.”

Nobert Otieno, Chairperson of the initiative, “advised participants about being professional, and not to accept bribes in their work”. He urged them to report accurate information to the communities they serve.

The initiative is supported by the European Union, DW (Deutsche Welle) Akademie and UNESCO.

In South Sudan, a fragile peace has been obtained through the agreements of last August, but remains in danger. A radio network can help contributing a culture of peace and of mutual respect.
