A one-day peace and reconciliation retreat organized by the sub-office of the Ministry of Youth and Sports has ended in Kakata Margibi County.
The retreat which was held at the Kakata City Hall brought together young people from the five electoral districts of the County as well as some local County Authorities.

Mr. Wuo explained that after gathering the information they as heads of the Ministry in the County decided to host the one-day peace and reconciliation program.
He asserted that they want to have peace in the County because without peace there will be no work in the County peace to restore in the mind of everybody.
