South Sudanese is calling for the revocation of the leadership and governance award given to President Salva Kiir by Universal Peace federation(UPF).

Kiir received the award for his roles in mediating between parties to the Sudanese conflict.

The award was presented by the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) — an international and interreligious network of individuals and organizations, dedicated to achieving world peace.

“Almost 500,000 people have died, over 5 million displaces, the country is still in crisis, thousands are under UN protection. ” Gatluke Chuol Reat said in a petition opened on the “change” website calling on the Universal Peace Federation to Revoke their award to South Sudan President Salva Kiir.

“So, under what achievement is President Salva being awarded that important recognition?” Gatluke questioned the organization.

According to the petition, the people of South Sudan urges the UPF to immediately revoke this award for the sake of the 500,000 people who lost their lives for the last five years, the millions in refugee camps in foreign countries, and the tens of thousands being protected from the regime by the UN within the country.
