May 6, 2017 (JUBA) - South Sudanese government under President Salva Kiir will on Monday swear in members of the national dialogue committee. Officials hope the initiative would be a step towards a lasting solution to end a deadly conflict and permit discussions for reforms and multi-party democracy.

In an announcement on the state-owned South Sudan Broadcasting Corporation (SSBC) TV on Saturday, President Kiir has called on members of the National Dialogue Steering committee, including the Secretariat to attend the swearing-in ceremony on Monday 8th May at 10 A.M.

The announcements follow a presidential order rebranding National Steering committee made up of more than 109 members with representatives of the neighbouring Countries.

It is not yet clear whether all the members of the National Steering committee will attend the widely publicised function. Key opposition figures who are appointed without prior consultation, including Rebecca Nyandeng de Mabior and Kosti Manibe, have turned down their appointments, citing the need for confidence-building measures, including the end of hostilities and the involvement African Union and United Nations.

Presidential Advisor Tor Deng Mawien on decentralisation and intergovernmental linkage told Sudan Tribune on Saturday that the dialogue would be an opportunity for all the parties to hold frank discussions on how to end the conflict in the country.

"We are going to hold a comprehensive national dialogue during which we will announce South Sudan’s transition towards a multi-party democratic state in which everyone will be equal and able to participate in the building of the nation’s future,” said Mawien.

Delegates, he said are expected to include civil society, women groups, youth, political parties and representatives from international organisations and observers from countries in the region.

The delegates would be invited to discuss a whole bundle of reforms and would encourage experts to present during the dialogue analytical reports to support the reform project and the national dialogue.

      Yep, continue to refuse national dialogue idiots and tomorrow, you will be first one to open your useless mouths that the government doesn’t want peace, but to use force to win the war. Fellows, be very careful though. Your Riek Machar sociopath isn’t going to walk the streets of South Sudan if he is the one you are blackmailing the South Sudanese people for>>>

    Song good let’s get started, the day of Monday will be the day south sudanese people’s will know who want peace to come for them & who don’t want peace to come for them. I mean the person who is going to attend that national dialogue or the person who agree with that national dialogue is the person who love SS and want peace for the people’s of SS and want SS to grow healthy

          The kiirminal has failed to implement the ARCISS 2015 and desperately wants to sell the bogus luakthrash dialogue as a national event. Only fools and idiots believe anything worthwhile will come out this jienge crap. You cant be the referee and the player at the same time. Anyway,I am at peace cos nothing will ever happen, except eating and drinking for a few hungry benydits/bandits

            Kiir is a very smart president. He has given rebels two choices to choose between them, peace and war. Peace is representing by national dialogue. If you want peace join it, if you want war, show us. You ran away from South Sudan, why? Please stop all these stupid writings, cowards always like to talk, but when it comes to actions, they run away to hide. You are a piece of dirt, no more.

      You idiots keep on day dreaming with your Jienge Dialogue, only the people in government and their beneficiaries are the ones who still see logic in Kiir’s stupid JCE tribal ideologies.

      There is nothing the JCE, Kiir or the Mathiang Anyoors can say or do to reverse the situation they created, except run amok like rats in a sinking ship.

        Anyone who will refuse dialogue to bring peace in South Sudan is mentally retarded. People who have concerns about our government should go to dialogue and air out their concerns. This is a right place to fix everything in our country. Did our government made mistakes in the past? Of course yes, our president apologized to citizens of South Sudan. He wants things in our country to be fixed.

      Thiep Mawien Thiep,
      I disagree with you a little bit my brother. President Kiir needs to show to the world that he wants peace in South Sudan. He is in full control of the country and calling for a dialogue is not in anyway standing down to anyone. Peace should be in his right hand, then hold others who will refuse peace on his left hand. We need support from regional and international community.

          You are right with the issues of peace and controlling the country. You are wrong with famine and our economy. Famine will go away a little by little, by September 2017 you hear good news about food security in South Sudan. Our economy is showing good signs of improvement, no single country in the world had ended recession in one year, again, little by a little. You are welcome back to SS

            Is that what you learnt from your bogus BA studies? What internal and external factors and components does a country like SS require in order to revive an economy? It is not about a US$ that now sells at about 150SSP, there´s more to that. Please enumerate some of the signs of an improving economy in your next mail, just to see how intelligent you jienge are !!

            The Collo, Anyuak and Nuer developed Makal, the Fertit, Balanda, Jur etc.. developed Wau, the Equatorians developed Juba, the Madi developed Nímule and now these jienges want to claim these towns as theirs cos they are to lazy and hopeless to develop their own towns like Bor, Rumbek or Gogrial. They love ready-made nests where others have worked so they come to parasite on them

                When a jienge loses reason and arguments, he resorts to insults and use of vulgar words. Why have jienges claimed all SS towns are theirs, when they have their own? Even in Yei, they claim to be "jienge ta Yei" like the Kiirminal who owns a big piece of land in Yei. Others claim to be jienge ta Nimule. Why? The jienge is the eternal drifter and vabagbond. South South is no different.

    Really? A government that lacks tolerance for freedom of speech, association and press is not sincere to say any thing about democracy. It makes no sense to talk about multi-party democracy when political space for opposition parties is closed. The world should not allow J1 continue to play the game of deceit and misinformation. How many citizens and journalists are dead for their work and speech?

    Where’s the venue of that JCE project called National Dialogue? No any town in RSS is safe to hold that dialogue. The capital city is flooded with Anyoors and the likes and we don’t want to repeat the mistakes of 2016 J1 plot to kill Riek. Those who dare will regret. Only Khartoum or Addis Ababa are the right Venues if that ND is to come. Omar Bashir or Lazarus (Kenya) be mediator.Try

      Third Step: No pre-conditions about dialogue

      You are missing point in your above statement. This is South Sudan dialogue, inserting Omar Bashir is already rejected.

    Then no need for dialogue when no preconditions are not allowed. Why are curiously looking for dialogue? What’s wrong in your camp? Taban Deng Gai and Kiir are in Juba and everything is fine. You want to fool us and world that economic crisis need dialogue? You are wrong> just make plans of economy. Try your so-called JCE Dialogue and come up with a declaratory paper to attract donors.

      Listen to me very carefully. If we start with pre-conditions, we will not move forward one inch because all the problems will pop up. Dialogue means to talk about differences people have, so things you want or your do not like about the government will discussed, then we reach very good understanding. You need to start liking all tribes of South Sudan for peace to come.

    Take it from me that a venue must be safe. Juba is not safe. No one is neutral from the list KIIR circulated. All are part of the chaos. We just Pagak (IO) GHQs. Dr. Riek will be there, Salva Kiir and his 109 members will come under UNMIS or RPF and attend that dialogue. We’ll grantee the safety of everyone or else, Nairobi or Kht. No more no less. Otherwise go ahead with your ND alone

      You need to stop for moment before you jump to Khartoum, Nairobi, Ethiopia, Omar Bashir. You can not refuse peace and think that you will stay in Pagak. Anyway, we have national team for dialogue, we will be sitting and wait for others to join us. It may take us long, but we will not leave a table, 1 year, 5 years, 10 years or more.

      This dialogue is just a gathering of luakjiengs who want to eat and drink especially during these "hunger and starving months". Jienges have never staged any successful conference whose outcomes can be followed and implemented. These scoundrels are chaotic, inconsistent and disorganized. Just think of their many inter-clan fights, and resolutions which have NEVER implemented

    We will come to Juba to liberate those trapped citizens under JCE regime. It’s after that we can open door for reconciliation. Either the 2015 collapsed ARCSS is revived, criminals who committed atrocities punished in Hybride court and dialogue later. No short cuts.

          Huge different between you and me when it comes to the killing of innocent people in South Sudan. I am against that. Killing 10, 20 innocent people will never help you to win the war in South Sudan. When it comes to real war, we are the master of it. You are under our feet like an insect, the only way out for you is to escape and stay outside the country.

    Al Bashir of Sudan tried that kind or National Monologue when he took power in 1989 to solve the problem of SS, but he failed miserably.
    Peace came to Sudan in 2005 when the government in Khartoum started the real processes for peace with then SPLM/A under Dr. John.
    Juba Government must learn the hard way than wasting time and money. 1/4 of citizens rebelled, and a right way forward is needed.
