WAU, 31 2016 [Gurtong] – The administrator of the diocese, Sylvester Owaj said they intend to relocate the conflict-affected people from John Paul Primary School and secondary schools and Saint Michael School including other school premises in Wau town to allow the students to resume their classes.

“We already notified the relevant authorities about our underway plans to resume our work in the Catholic schools in Wau town by Monday,” he said.

The church did not confirm the new site to be established for the IDPs of whom many have already started moving to join those at the UN camp as the State government has been calling on the IDPs to return to their homes prior to the normal security situation in the town.

Wau catholic diocese compound was the second leading IDPs home in Wau after the UN base with many health facilities established by the UN agencies.
