A civil society organization, Community Empowerment for Progress Organization or CEPO is urging donors to support media engagement on the political transitional events in South Sudan namely; constitutional making process and conduct of elections.

CEPO says the role of media in providing civic education among the citizens is critical and essential and that it should not be undermined or underrated by the donor community in South Sudan

“Media plays a key role in South Sudanese society. Adequate funding to media will provide civic education among the population for effective engagement in the political transitional process in South Sudan. “ Said Edmund Yekani.

South Sudan’s national elections is expected to take place in December 2024.

CEPO says it will soon faciliacate series of dialogue on the role of the media in political transitional process in collaboration with media authority, access to information commission and relevant state authorities
