“Some have been rescued but others are still hiding in villages which is not a safe option to them,” she stated.

She then added: “We have been getting $800m per year from trade in Southern Sudan but now it is a real set back.”

The instabilities in Southern Sudan have caused a lot of damage to Ugandan lives as well as business progress.

Southern Sudan had given employment opportunities to many Ugandans and business has been running smoothly across borders.

Many Ugandans are stranded and do not know what to do, as many continue to lose their lives.

“I heard that some are hiding in villages instead of coming back to their mother country thinking that this will end very soon and they resume work which is not the safest option to their lives because this seem to be an intertribal war.”

Kyambadde in the same conference also passed over a Christmas message to all the Christian believers to celebrate it with a purpose instead of thinking about eating good foods and drinks plus going out with loved ones.

“I want you as Ugandans to think about what you have achieved in 2013 and make plans for next year 2014,” she stated.

She has also urged believers to work hard in the coming year in order to be successful.
