Members of the SPLM political bureau, including the party’s first deputy chairperson, Riek Machar are expected to chat the ruling party’s future "in the wake of the recent unilateral decisions taken by the party’s chairperson, Salva Kiir Mayardit, dissolving its structures".

All local and international media houses, according to a statement extended to Sudan Tribune, are invited to attend Friday’s event, which starts from 2:00pm.

"The venue will be confirmed in the morning hours on Friday. For further information, contact James Gatdet Dak, the press secretary of the former vice-president", it stated.

Organisers of the Friday’s media briefing, however, said the public will be excluded from the event, exclusively for journalists and the concerned party leaders.

The office of the first deputy chairperson further announced that the party leaders will conduct a public rally on Saturday 14 December at Dr. John Garang memorial ground.

        Beny yomhoi,
        Nobody wants to shed blood. How can you shed blood when you are simply promoting democracy in our beloved country. Kiir has failed us all. I believe nobody will accept to die defending a failed leader like incompetent. He is not worthy of dying for. The man should quit if he loves the people of South Sudan. He has ruled them for 8 years.

        Do you remember when Dr. Defector said after expressing apology in Bor and at the house of Nyandeng for his massacre of 1991 that he’s fit to rule South Sudan before he dies. Reconciliation doesn’t mean people must quickly forget Bor Massacre of 1991 and other patriotic prominent Nuer commanders who are not with us today. The ten years set back (1991-2002) was democratic to Dr. Defector

      Incompetent Kiir is responsible for this situation. The man wants to rule like a king forgetting that more than 2 million people died to achieve democracy when Khartoum was practicing dictatorship. So, tell Kiir to quit and other leaders allow democracy to flourish. Otherwise, he will be in the history as the worst leader South Sudan have ever had.

    Dr. Riek was not stupid enough to apology on behalf of Nuer community rather than himself. The Nuer (the only threat to Dinka Kingdom in the South) patience for their unquestionable love to the mother land (South Sudan) gave Dinka all the opportunity they needed to expand their power in the South. The more wealth and powerful the Dinka become, the more able they are to further expand their empire.

    South Sudan: Democracy in the making. To promote democracy, the group calling for pc must be allowed to exercise their democratic rights as enshrined in our interim constitution. The citizens of the new republic would listen to what political alternative they are coming up with, and based on that we will be able to judge them, otherwise any thing short of that will plunge the country into violence

    I do not think that the gogrial thieves were born to rule. I think you are mistaken and also Dr. Riek Machar is not an idiot. His goals are to transform South Sudan into the first world class, and without any discrimination among our beloved tribes. We South Sudanese are one family that is why we live in the same land called South Sudan. But we really need a leader that is for the c

    is for the country and for the patriotism of this country and its people and Dr. Riek is the one that is qualified for that position. We are all the children of South Sudan. Dr. Riek Machar is the only experienced politician that can challenge Salva Kiir. Just think about it for a minute. If you really did not know him in the past, get to know him now so you know the real Dr. Riek Machar. I have t

    . I have to tell you that a lot of Nuer blamed Dr. Riek Machar for calling the people back during the war. All the Dinka were supposed to be killed but Dr.Riek Machar was unwilling to cooperate with those white army who were on their way to kill all the Dinka in Jonglei and in Lake States. He ordered them to return and not to cause any killing in the Dinka’s land, and because of that, he was punis

    He ordered them to return and not to cause any killing in the Dinka’s land, and because of that, he was punished by those Nuer. He fled for his life, and went to Gajaak Nuer land where he was being protected firmly. My point is that do not blame Riek for any killing that had happened before in Dinka’s land because he did not actually do it, and also he did not order any killing that had happened.

    The mission to kill was done by a groups of Nuer who came together for specific revenge against the Dinka and it was not Dr. Riek at all. I know you would blame it on him because he had some disagreements with Dr. John who is a Dinka like you. I am not here to talk about what the Dinka had done to Nuer, but I want to make it very clear and to speak the truth about your argument. Born to Rule, if y

    Born to Rule, if you are really a meaningful minded person who want to help his country, you should role back your thinking and correct your illusions so that you can speak the truth. Never blame Dr. Riek Machar for anything that had happened in the past because it was not his responsibility to protect every Dinka from insecurity that was going on. Dr.Kiir did not protect every Nuer either. Kiir m

    Kiir and Riek must step down. If Kiirule failed to stop Riek from holding a conference, He must step down immediately. If riek failed to over throw Kiir, he needs to shut up his mouth. Here is what gonna happen, the Kiirules gonna shut down that conference of Riek and his Vice Nyadeng or that will be falling of kiirules from SPLA chairman. Machar left SPLA in 1991and form SSIM/A.

    Machar left SPLA in 1991 and came in 2005 with aim to make South Sudan Independence through his party name, which is South Sudan independence Army (SSIA) Then, SPLA under the leadership of Garang failed to achieved his vision of fighting to get the whole Sudan North and south as black country not Arab country.If that is what Riek is fighting for why Machar doesn’t Announce his own party?
