Young people in the Darfur region of Sudan are being encouraged to work for peace, no matter how impossible that might seem.

That's the message from the Deputy Joint Special Representative of the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID), Jeremiah Nyamane Kingsley Mamabolo.

Mr Mamabolo recently travelled to Tawilla in North Darfur state where he met with youth uprooted by conflict.

The state has been hosting more than 20,000 internally displaced people (IDPs), many of whom have fled recent fighting in the Jebel Marra area.

Setyo Budi spoke to Mr Mamabalo following his visit.
