The forum, initiated within the framework of the IGAD-led peace process for South Sudan, is expected to run concurrently and provide critical contribution to the ongoing broader political dialogue towards national reconciliation and healing.

Also graced by Ethiopia’s Prime Minister, Hailemariam Dessalegn, the SPLM meeting prepared ground for the party’s leadership review and self-assessment.

“The advance team meeting will develop the agenda, modalities and time frame for the Forum, which will address underlying causes of the current crisis in South Sudan,” IGAD said in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune.

The intra-party forum is facilitated by representatives from the Ethiopian People Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) and the African National Congress (ANC) in light of their relevant experiences in dealing with South Sudan’s ruling party crisis.

    This initiative to bring the SPLM leaders together in Addis Ababa is a long known move. However the funny bit is that, Ateny Awek Ateny, president Salva Kiir had since distanced his president from it. So what is happening now my people of SPLM?

      Ambago,
      Even you should not talk. Your problems are much worse than the problems of SPLM.
      After going to every party SPLM-DC, SPLM, and so many other parties you are discovered to be an animal. Get your brain stable first before you point a finger at our SPLM.

    I don’t get it why South Sudan government refers even basic issues that can be dealt with in the country to Adis Ababa. This govt. is very unstable for real, now I believe SPLM-IN-Opposition has potential to overthrow this government

      Hahaha uncle J, for real? Where have you been? This leadership have been weak and full of theft , nepotism , segregation and idiots from the get go! It started right from the referendum when the Dinka sent the secret memo informing people of how voting for separation will lead to instability because Dinka leadership is at steak! This has been coming Uncle J!

    Isn’t it ironic that this failed ruling party is still called Sudan People’s Liberation Movement even after independence of South Sudan? South Sudanese need to leave this party and start afresh as this name carries stigma of failures, dictatorship, corruption, genocidal, etc. No wonder Kirr’s closest friend remains Bashir. The Politburo better dispose this incompetent leader to save South Sudan.

      I hope they use this opportunity to select their representatives for the interim government while Kirr is still in Khartoum; his most probable exile and his next place to keep his loot now that US suctions will be imposed on them. The more you keep Kirr in power, the more the ship will sink and the more Southerners will become Bashir’s slaves. South Sudanese deserve better.....

    Joseph and Philo. both of you brothers have made good points. I personally support change of leadership if there was a good leader with no dark side record. All I need now is a leader that will reunite our beautiful nation so we can leave in peace as one people so we can call it South Sudan ’yetu’ more like Kenya ’yetu’ for Kenyan.
