Des Moines, Iowa, March 30, 2015 (SSNA) — The Nuer Community Development Service in the United States of America has successfully concluded its official two days annual convention and passed resolutions after key proposals were presented before the delegates.
The South Sudan News Agency (SSNA) gained a rare access inside the conference hall where voting process for key proposals took place. The SSNA also obtained a partial list of some of the resolutions passed by the delegates.
The list includes permanent and strong unity of all Nuer sections, appreciation letter to the United Nations (UN), petition letter to member states of the international community, and unnamed International Criminal Court (ICC)-related cases. The conference further demanded all Nuer sub-sections to have “indestructible unity” under Nuer and warned “unspecified consequences” against any Nuer section daring to cause division or defy the unity of Greater Nuer Community.
The SSNA noticed that the list did not detailed actions the NCDS will take or implement after the conference.
However, the Leadership of the NCDS-USA, Inc, made it clear to the SSNA that some of its agendas and resolutions are not for public and that voting procedures are closed-door, citing confidentiality.
Earlier this month, the NCDS said the purpose of convention will be to discuss the ongoing worse catastrophic humanitarian situation in Nuer land in South Sudan, peace, development , insecurity, child education Agricultural food security, among others.
The conference has drawn thousands of delegates from across the US and around the world.
The NCDS is a US-based non-profit organization and is by far the biggest South Sudanese community in the United States.
