It was a mix of pleasure and pain as members of the organised forces took part in a marathon in commemoration of Human Rights Day. The 10km race dubbed ‘Run for Peace and Human Rights’ took place within Juba town and was organised in collaboration with the Peace Protection and Development program, to send a message that the armed forces should be a symbol of peace and respect of human rights.

David Gonji Taban from the South Sudan People’s Defence Forces emerged winner of the male race, while Selina Agor James took the female trophy. They both made an impassioned appeal to the country’s leaders to guard and respect the principles of Human Rights.
