A meeting of the Africa Hub was recently convened (13.06.2019) at the All Africa Conference of Churches to discuss the emerging issues regarding the South Sudan. The Africa Hub is mandated to accompany the church in South Sudan in engaging with the challenges of the nation’s civil conflict. Archbishop Wani of the Presbyterian Church in South Sudan represented the church leadership accompanied by Natalia Chan from Christian Aid UK who is also the convenor of the UK/USA Hub. Professor Eale of the AACC chaired the meeting. Others present were Rev Dr Mutava Musyimi who is a former Kenyan legislator as well as representatives from FECCLAHA, TAABCO, ACT Alliance, CAPA, Christian Aid Africa amongst others.
Apart from the updates for Ms Chan and the Archbishop, the meeting was focussed on the effects of the recent disturbances in Khartoum as well as the apathy shown by other countries in the region in engaging with the country post the revised peace agreement. One of the resolutions reached was to use those within the hub to work with the regional church leaders to reinvigorate their national leaders’ interest in South Sudan and their continued engagement with the peace process.
Also Fecclaha handed the leadership of South Sudan Ecumenical Network/Africa Hub to All Africa Conference of Churches
