April 25, 2017 (JUBA) - South Sudanese President Salva Kiir Tuesday has appointed Rebecca Garang, the widow of late SPLM founding leader John Garang and a political rival, to the National Dialogue committee.

In a decree read on state-owned South Sudan Broadcasting Corporation (SSBC) on Tuesday evening, President Kiir also appointed Transport Minister John Luk and former finance minister Kosti Manibe.

The duo together with Rebecca Garang are members of the Former Political Detainees (FDs), the politicians President Kiir detained and accused of treason for months at the onset of conflict in 2013. They were released when the government dropped the evident under pressure from the international community.

The appointment comes after a recent meeting a delegation from the opposition Former Detainees led by Rebecca Garnag held with President Yoweri Museveni over ways end the war and hold an inclusive process to end the over three-year conflict.

After the meeting she told Sudan Tribune that the meeting with the Ugandan president “focused on how to unite the different political groups in South Sudan".

She further said the national dialogue should be inclusive to realise freedom, sets control over security organs and meets requirements of the 2015 peace agreement between the government with the armed and non-armed opposition.

The Former Detainees are party to the Transitional Government of National Unity formed in April 2016 following the August 2015 peace agreement.

The national dialogue announced in December 2016 has not kicked off its work. The government cited lack of funds but the opposition, including the FDs, have criticised the strategy as a tactic to escape implementation of the provisions of the shaky peace agreement.

The new members to the national dialogue include Sudanese and Ugandans.

John Luk works with President Kiir in Juba but Mrs Garang and Manibe are outside the country. It is not immediately clear if they will accept to work with the dialogue committee.

    What exactly qualifies her for this position other than just being Garang’s wife? This is just like how Salva Kiir was chosen to rise to the Presidency based entirely on seniority instead of knowledge and competence. This entire exercise is worthless precisely because it’s being initiated by an untrustworthy, illegitimate ’government’...

      ..But Salva Kiir and his cronies refuse to recognise that they’ve been entirely discredited. I would not be able to sleep at night if I sparked a terrible civil war on a false prospectus; a war that has displaced millions, claimed at least 50, 000 lives and plunged millions into a state of famine... man-made famine.

        You’re definitely correct Khent. President kiir is messing up the country by appointed uncapable people in higher positions for his political gain. Please don’t get me wrong, I love president kiir, but his leadership is taking us no where in the world. This is terrible and majority of citizens are getting frustrated. Therefore, nyandeng is not qualify to hold this position or given upper leadershi

              Khent,
              Thank you for the honest and objective analysis on the state of affairs in our country. The Kiirminal has betrayed the people. Each SS contributed relentlessly directly or indirectly to liberating SS. For those like me that witnessed that historical 9 July 2011 in Juba, the tears, emotions and hope, it is betrayal of the people. It shall never be the same anymore after all these. Sad

This is not what we all lost family members for and yet there are people that still support Salva Kiir and pretend that they represent the country. I don’t understand how.

You should know that, all the S.S are suffering under Kiir and his cronies. Few Jieng benefiting are just like the few Nuer under Taban, Riek Gai, Bari under Wani, Zande under their leaders Etc. It’s the system that has failed not Jieng

                  For us to liberate the south from these myopic leaders is to group together and unite as people. But if some of you label the entire tribe as benefiting even when you all quiet know that, it is not the case, then, these corrupt leaders will be defended until the last man. For now, let us agree that, Kiir and his group are worthless and must go.

                  I have bitterly critizied the jienges for their tacit or complacency to the system. Most have been terrified not to criticize and have indirectly endorsed the Kiirminal. I have till now not heard from any single jienge condemnationb on massacres, rape and killing of non-jienge. When 21 jienges got killed on Yei-Juba road, it was the Equatorians in Juba that strongly demonstrated.

                    what about raping and killing of innocent Dinka women that took place in Bor massacre in 2013 from the very begin of this conflict? Do you personally condemned it? you are always commenting on tribal line not only being tribalistic but also stupid enough to understand the respect for diversity and coexistence. do not be so ignorance my friend, all S.

Some only speak out when they are fired from the system or when they rebelled like the stupid Swaka. Did you criticize them the way you do to the Jieeng people? Where did they Equatorians criticize the savages who killed innocent Jieng on Yei-Juba roa

E.g Costella Garang Ring, Jok Madut Jok, General Dau, Mabior Riny Lual, among millions way back before the current crisis.

                  It’s simple and concise

                  The Dinka Tribe must come out openly and denounce their support to well rejected/unwated Salva Kiir.... Otherwise, the whole tribe will suffer and will continues to suffer for many years to comes because the Dinka tribe think that 1 man live, is important than thousands lives lost through such senseless war created by unwanted S. Kiir..

Give a peace chance for all South Sudanese tribes, but if there are a few who want to impose their stupid ideas on us, we must deal with them first. This is exactly what president is doing now. He offers dialogue while making sure that our country is safe.

        I couldn’t agree more. Kiir could pull some face-saving stunt by stepping aside from his national dialogue gimmick. Kiir cannot wage war on one hand and on the other hand write decrees appointing people who work for him (Manibe) and those without influence on the armed opposition (Rebecca) expecting any useful outcomes....

          Wait a minute; what does me agreeing with your comment has to do with me being desperate about president Kiir legitimacy? There is no question; I support president Kiir over Riek Machar. Now my question to you is; who do you support? Riek Machar over president Kiir?

            You started off by saying that you agreed with my comment on Nydandeng and that you didn’t read on as soon as I didn’t recognise Salva Kiir as a dear leader. You shouldn’t support Salva Kiir or Riek Machar. These two mis-leaders are not worthy of support of any sort and the potential triumph of one over the other will just prolong the war and the suffering of our people.

      Hi Khent,
      In the first line of your statement"what exactly qualified her for this position other and just being garang`s wife?"
      This question seem to be an appeal to form of authority because Dr garang was the former chairman of SPLM.
      Symbolically,he was also chrismatic national figure.Therefore,before we even read this question, we are more likely to incline to your argument.

      President Kiir, is his right to do as such but country is affected by hunger whereby there will be no people joining the process of the national dialogue is concerned with the citizens or communities concern.
      The national dialogue is be run after relief process by the president to the people of the country.

    I think if this dialogue is to succeed, presidency must refrain from trying to control the outcome - the Church must be the one to do the picking, timing, venue, agenda and money will come elsewhere - dressing this wound any other way will only make it rot more becoz of prevailing mistrust.

    Mr. President Salva Kiir, you’re Jesus Christ the second! Why? You’re really very an opposites 90% on your daily routine. Is Nyandeng and her alike are the ones worrying much about lives saving in South Sudan? You can’t solve problems with problems. But, you can solve a problem with peace. What will these people tell me, if they come to state? I think you’re just putting them there for the sake of

        Thank to all your comments
        first of all we are all South Sudanese and there is no need for as to argue on tribal basis but we must put our argument national and political prospective as you elaborated above. we need solution for our country not more chaos. neither Kiir nor Riek can save us from this mess but any patriotic national.

        Kiir is there busy appointing/relieving, but that will not solve the whole country’s problem, the things is to step aside in order to give peace and stability a chance otherwise our country will collapse in no time soon because i never witness a country where by leader speaks on how to stay on power rather than speaking on what will bring the people together.

        Our economic has collapse, no hope.

    Regardless of whomever is in the committee, it’s bound to fail, unless with the full inclusion and participation of the different armed opposition groups, the civil society and the church, and plus the representatives of all the 64 tribes of South Sudan.

    Kiir has to pack up and go, we don’t want him nor Marcher, time for a generational change and fresh minds with new ideas.

        So the question is; what capacity does salva kiir have over Nyandeng appointment when she is not part of his faction?? Or has Nyandeng quietly abandon so called Former Detainees (DF)?? If not, will she ( Nyandeng accept this cunning appointment without her being consult first?? Anyway, I will just fold my both hands across my chest, and see how things are going to work!! Good luck..

    It is always useless to point figures at everyone. There people do not have sense of doing things at their households level and always the first challenge the people who trying to bring peace. we all tired of comments that touch others but put prayers first so whoever do what we really want that can bring peace and stability to our beloved nation. Appreciate any effort made.

    I hope mama Rebecca and Manibe can read between the lines as to why Kiir is desperately needing them to patch his reputation! The National dialogue is pointless, has no direction and no objective other than garnering financial support from the international community. Kiir and all involved need to understand that the Peace Agreement is the only way forward. Anything else is treason.

      Kiir’s number one mistake is his belief that once he has given someone a job, he has solved a problem. Its not about positions, its about the rotten system. For god’s shake, trying to fix your corrupt, tribalistic, murderous and incompetent government on your own is the stupidest thing you will veer do. If you want to solve a problem, stick to the peace agreement.

    i am surprise that kir appoint Mrs Nyadeng while after he was about to kill her in Kenya condemning her she is supporting Dr Riak. i believe that could not be the end of s.Sudan conflict of assigning her as one for peace dialogue unless the kir is committing to step aside and allow other person to take over the leadership of the country.

    I am amazed by the level of hatred among South Sudanese as manifested in this debate. This conflict will not end any time soon because each tribe has its own version of the story. Fellow South Sudanese from Equatoria have decided to hate Dinkas for no apparent reason. Refusal to believe that Kiir’s failure is affecting every S.Sudanese alike and call for his collective overthrow is absurd.
