We have to be peacemakers after years of conflict: South Sudan radio journalist

12 February 2019

From its base in South Sudan’s capital, Juba, Radio Miraya – the station run by the UN Mission in the country, UNMISS – is tasked with promoting dialogue, tolerance and peace – the three interlinked themes of World Radio Day 2019, marked on 13 February.

The challenge for broadcast journalists is huge, given the level of suffering and intercommunal hatred generated by years of civil war after the world’s youngest country was born, in 2011.

In an interview with UN News’s Daniel Johnson, presenter Lucy Jubara explains how the radio station accomplishes its mission, through community programmes that involve women’s groups, civil society and government officials - bringing “all these voices together”.
