The Ugandan leader, whose visit to Juba was unannounced, did not speak to the media on arrival and no immediate release was made from the talks he had with president Kiir.

It was not immediately what the two presidents discussed during Thursday’s meeting.

The South Sudanese presidential spokesperson, Ateny Wek Ateny said discussions involving two leaders focused on bilateral relations between the two nations as well as the upcoming United Nations Security Council vote on an arms embargo due on Friday.

Highly placed sources at the presidency told Sudan Tribune that the Ugandan leader informed president Kiir that the region wants him to implement key provisions in the peace agreement in order to resuscitate the agreement and move the country forward.

President Museveni, the source said, told president Kiir to extend dialogue to both the armed and non-armed opposition figures to make it a broad and inclusive dialogue.

“You know president Museveni is our strongest and longest ally in the region. He is more than just a brother and so he came to consult his brother and to provide some advises which I know will definitely be taken into consideration by our president".

Museveni reportedly emphasized the need for inclusive dialogue and asked Kiir to allow the church lead the process so that everybody feels included and have the opportunity to participate and be represented in the recent calls for national dialogue by President Like.

    Mr. Museven, be fair this time and balanced.
    We know, you are covering a very dangerous secret of the black-box of your doomed helicopter to assassinate the vision bearer of this fragmented so called SPLM/A. You bear the greatest responsibility for this crisis in this country.
    You fooled Kiir with your dum advice thinking we are like your matooke eating people who value money to humans beings.

      First of all, the most delicate decree made on July 2013, you deployed your NMA prior to the exercise (without study),Dec 14-15, 2013, you deployed army, all this time you fought alongside Kiir as you champion in IGAD and IGAD+. Now you dressed your NRA (notably nothern Ugandans for their black skin)is SPLA uniform and continue civilian massacre. What is your legitimacy in this country, refuge hos

        This war is btn brothers of the same father but diff mothers. Soon or later after shorting out their differences, they will come to round table to agree and harmonize their traditional differences. You don’t need to come as a neighbor and starts shooting the family of the other just to defend your interest which constitute crime against you and later you will regret. Better distant & speak truth.

    "When brothers fight to death, a stranger will inherit their father’s house" African proverb.

    Real peace will come when real dialogue begins between brothers and sister without intimidation or manipulation and both sides need heard about what they think may constitutes "intimidation & manipulation" to be avoided during peacemaking.

    I am always pleased by Museveni’s speech. We should stop blaming at other while we have not put our house in order and cooperate for the development our country. Stop lies and let us dialogue to create the state we want. Blame games take us nowhere.

    All he emphasized on are implementable for he, the president of Republic Of Uganda and his fellow citizens aren’t like those who gloat burning of their siblings’ house without knowing they can be faced by the same circumstances next time.President Kiir is a man of peace and no doubt that he may not lead the search for peace.

      when you massacre Dinka in 1991 we accept the tears of Riek and came together, just come Gen. Mayardit is ready to cry, know that you guys will not win even 0.001% on your abuses on social media, the world has learned that the IOs are in Juba for peace but those in the bush are defectors. abusing anyone who doesn’t support you cannot help either
