People for Peace in Africa, South Sudan, Joseph Ngala
In a story following the decision by the government of South Sudan to close the Nation Mirror newspaper, Joseph Ngala, director of Pax Christi International member organisation, People for Peace in Africa, voiced his concerns about the president's relationship with media.
Ngala suggested that a Catholic president like Salvar Kiir should understand justice but in this case is not even attempting to listen to the voices of the media in southern Sudan.
"We appeal to people of good will to condemn this act and write him a letter," stated Ngala. "We ask people of goodwill to pray for southern Sudan that there may be light."
The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has called on South Sudan’s government to immediately reopen the Nation Mirror newspaper.
