May 18, 2017 (JUBA) – President Salva Kiir Thursday said that the national dialogue process will start with those are ready to take part, insisting that the others can join it later on but he would not delay it further.

“Those who are available will be sworn in on Monday, May 22, 2017. Those who are not around will be sworn in as and when they come because the process cannot be postponed,” said President Kiir on Thursday.

Different opposition figures including the widow of the late SPLM leader John Garang de Mabior, Kosti Manibe, and Majak D’ Agoot, declined to join the process after their appointment by the President citing the lack of prior consultation and the need for confidence building measures before to hold it.

Kiir pointed out the country’s’ needs to be guided by the values of peace and national reconciliation as a way of observing the spirit of Lent.

The President went on to emphasising on the values of Christianity.

“The fundamental values of Christianity, such as love of the neighbour, forgiveness, reconciliation and peace, transcend the religious domain to be guiding values of our South Sudanese society because they are shared by all of us, regardless of our differences,” he added.

The head of state said that the national dialogue would be an opportunity and a process for deep reflection on the values and principles which bind the South Sudanese leadership.

President Kiir made the remarks on Thursday to members of the organising committee who have been tasked with various responsibilities to make necessary arrangements for the swearing-in of dialogue committee members.

Peace in the country has been unattainable and is constantly threatened but the fractures within the leadership of the major armed opposition parties and within the government.

      Dear President, you are right, as saying goes, "to many cooks spoil the broth." just go on with natioal dialogue and othes shall follow "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." even the war of liberation struggle was not seen at the same angle but did not prevent freedom fighters from fighting its.

      Even in a family unit, there are some cases where there would be one or two, who just want the whole family go their way or the high way. But these obstinate kind of members are asked in a good faith by their fathers/mothers and their siblings to join the family. And if they refused, then they are left alone and the rest of the family members move on with their lives. So Let those criminals>>>

So what is their different between the current mobs in the government and them? My own answer is: These criminals who want the South Sudanese people go their way or the high is, they are after their own selfish interests and the interests of their foreign masters, plain and simple>>>

          In Jan 2011 we overwhelmingly voted in the referendum and 6 months later got our independence. Just 3 yrs on, hookers and goons have turned our country into Jienge Republic and slaughter house. The very scoundrels are again inviting us to a national dialogue, how silly. Any non-jienge participating in this crap is simply strengthening the JR and advocating their jiengeism. No dialogue.

    Yes, National Dialogue is the only viable option available to rescues the worsening situation. Then why rushing and dictate it again? This where your failure came in and surfacing as head of state, there are process a lot of process. Prior appointing anyone whether in government position or committee, you must consult X & Y first. Riek, Lam, Changson, Gadet, Thomas and others should included.
