In August 20-27 Radio visited various cattle camps in Terekeka, Central Equatoria. A number of success stories following impact of radio messages recorded in Digital Audio Players (DAP) were shared:
A. Peter Tongun Sub Chief of Joor Boma Lokweni cattle camp and area (centre) reports what he and his camp learnt:
- Value life (Don't kill)
- Hard work to avoid raiding
- Live peacefully with people (use good words and good approaches)
- Beneficiaries: 20 youth, 10 women, 70 children
Peter believes that youth will be transformed as they keep listening to radio messages. Across should keep coming and monitoring the messages and adding more messages.
B. Although he did not receive a DAP in the year Chief Magbang of Joor Boma Terekeka County listened to the messages from those who had. He said, "I have told those who are holding on to the DAPs to go to the churches and share the messages with those who have not had access to them. The messages remind me of a good leader."
C. In Ngamangu cattle camp Garbina and Lakenyi, the camp chief,
reported that the messages are good news to help people come out of the box of ignorance to the box of enlightenment. "We are now living as brothers and sisters. We want to share the same with others. Ours is like a school of peace building." Through the message on peace Lukenyi helped solve the fights in the cattle camp.
There are girls in Ngamangu camp some of whom would engage in sexual acts in the bush and would deceive their parents. They listened to the messages on HIV/AIDS, and on consequences of conflict arising when involvement in unofficial sex is discovered. They now want to involve their parents by introducing their suitors to them.
D. Ujungani Cattle Camp
Rt Camp Leader. There is a lot of improvement in the cattle camps as youth have listened to the radio messages. Many are turning away from raids and conflicts to handling matters peaceably.
