8:31 pm

8:32 pm
feel still going for this. certainly not by name that. those like me always pick out indeed the many who are sailing out or unsafe i mean you can never change anything until you can never change anything unless you speak out of it. the case in uganda is a complex one because we are living in a regime that is that if. we note tolerate any thing that is not its line of thinking so anybody who speaks out. against. this is of the regime is at risk because that freedom is to us anyway. no president has been ruling for thirty three years and counting. you've already mentioned that you are considering running for president maybe for
8:33 pm
the first time you can clarify everything with you have you decided now are you running for president the next election. to say it's not just about me asking is should not be like me should be like we and yes i and my team are considering challenging the seven in the next presidential election that we are looking at the presidency in itself as an end because we know that biggest problem is governance is the governance question that one percent of and we cannot solve that until we get into leadership ourselves so yes expect my team to be challenging for the presidency in the next presidential election recently we all know what happened in algeria particularly congratulated the people of for peacefully demonstrating and no person with a flicker has stepped out of how feasible do you think that process is going to be like in uganda. seems impossible until it's done
8:34 pm
you know. sports especially in africa seemed. invincible and you saw it with. me say it recently in. just a few days in nigeria. sooner or later most of the new will be. strong statements from you what is the major opposition if you are going to encounter. with us where. the major opposition were encountering is the opposition. we are not. making it very easy for us to. say did some time ago that members in the opposition are only concerned about their positions and they will fight any composition that threatens their position and that is not what we're looking to we are looking at inclusiveness of the people
8:35 pm
especially they get people where come from that have been for so long from the way they're governed that's why we're throwing it back to the people and people of power who want to be you know to change the decision making from. this from. should be from bottom up and that is why we're calling upon old they must history just as voters in millions so that they can assert their voice peacefully through their vote and for the first time. the leaders are going to be savants realistically and they will be. through their vote well believe you have made your point very very strong i'm just going to give you the final word for people that are watching you your inspiration of course a lot of young people out there what's your message my message. to the
8:36 pm
ugandan and especially the young people i know you're watching. a special kind of i'm not i'm just. i'm only playing my. you might be a. businessman. under the friends out there in the world we thank you for standing with us but please keep your eyes on that one that one facebook post that you make about uganda projects right now we live because they looked at us and. please keep your. brothers and sisters on the african continent we are not free three and watch we get that believing in enough that we will be proud of when you are much. thank you. the vatican today is bringing
8:37 pm
together in rivals south sudan's president. and former vice presidents very. the vatican is calling it an occasion for encounter reconsideration. bring or bring peace to south sudan and mend the relationship between. rival release the civil war in twenty three seen by brutal violence until now talks fields to bring lasting peace creating africa's largest refugee crisis here's a look back at south sudan's turbulent history. borne out of conflict south sudan's boston twenty eleven was meant to beckon an era of peace and prosperity and state it didn't take long for all the ethnic rivalries to resurface. within two years the country was plunged into civil war with people paying the greatest price violence famine and millions forced to flee.
8:38 pm
in even the prairie because it didn't even last the property. the reason for the mass human suffering the rift between president here and the deputy he sacked. him he accused of. over the years the men have signed and broken numerous peace deals time and again the smiles did not last. through it all the helpless on the home front and the world's youngest country continued a long way to go. i'm joined now by and the head of the africa division of the foundation for science and politics in berlin thanks for your time now you've done extensive research in the region after five years of civil war insults and is the pope the solution. well we would hope that maybe there is no moral boost that he
8:39 pm
can bring but for sure it cannot be the solution because the problem is much more deep rooted than having a spiritual visit. sound to spur a troll so he treats the hold it for could that be well i hope that there is more than a spiritual retreat but a proper reading. you know you cannot be responsible as a leader of your country and let the country go down as they have done in the last five years and i think hopefully calling are on their responsibility to basically start building that country rather than destroying now i dish talks in a different phone about talks five thirty eastern. well. he will not have any mandate to negotiate any talks because the peace talks are negotiated the peace deal is done they have to implement so what we hope of course
8:40 pm
is that he will push them. you know to take responsibility to implement the peace talks that happened in the region before if they different if they are listening more that's one can just hope i don't know if they do. talk about talks i mean there's been so many talks about mine talks related no dues i've been three deals still civil war continues. why how the previous talks all failed i think it's much more systemic than you know having and having a deal i mean what we see right now with this deal and the previous deals is yes ok you have an end to the war they stop fighting at least some of the forces stop fighting the systemic question is are the leaders willing to actually lead towards a positive build up of the country and do they have the chain of command are they really in command of all the troops. so far both both questions would have to be answered with a no. is it different this time i think it really depends on the leaders but it
8:41 pm
also depends on you know the society to push for them but also of course of it depends on the region and the international community at large now real solves gloom and doom every time we talk about south sudan is the time civil war is going to end the five years and counting. is there any hope. i think there's hope i think there is hope not in the old guard there's hope in the young people and the more so sit down like many many countries in the region you have you know more than more than sixty percent are below that they've had thirty five and you have a lot of initiatives by young people by women who push themselves to become part of negotiations and push themselves to actually started reconciliation rather than mobilizing themselves in to a war so yes i do have hope but i'm very doubtful about the current leadership to really you know steer in the right direction there's been talks about possible community efforts you know to actually make this possible to make
8:42 pm
a sort of peace deal possible what you make of it i think that's where we have to start i mean i think they have to be a lot of local efforts of reconciliation because this is where the rooms are this is where the memory of the trauma is but it cannot be done only on the local level if there is no provision by the government of there are no there's no good governance there's no rule of law if there is nothing that sounds like about accountability it is accountability you know the local efforts can only go so far. thanks for your time thank you very much. that's it for now from africa or lost stories on our web site on face book page and now we move to the other side of the continents many of you now with images of caution not the action but then the not the country's biggest our cultural. ties are not.
