Women in South Sudan are calling on the Government and armed opposition groups to stop fighting and make peace.

The country has been beset by conflict since last December leading to the displacement of a million people.

In times of conflict, it is generally women who suffer most.

In South Sudan, they are joining a national platform for reconciliation in an attempt to halt the fighting.

Regina Gorle asked Norah Zangabeyo, a Member of South Sudan Women Leaders for Peace, what she hoped to achieve.
