October 1, 2017 (JUBA) - South Sudan President Salva Kiir said the national dialogue will be an opportunity for the people to decide on the number of states.

President Kiir, according to the official South Sudan broadcasting Corporation explained that the dialogue is intended to address the issues which the 2015 peace accord overlooked.

“The national dialogue is intended to iron out whatever differences that remained, that have not been addressed by the (peace) agreement. Whatever type of the system of governance that the people want, they can recommend it through the national dialogue," he said.

"How do they want the government to be shaped, the national government, the state governments, do they need more states, do they need some of the states to be scrapped and then to squeeze the government, all these things are left to them," he added.

Kiir pointed that such process will pave the way to achieve unity again and peace in the troubled country.

The opposition groups in the past rejected the creation of 28 states in the country by the President Kiir, saying such matter should be discussed during the transitional period by the constituent assembly.

South Sudanese leader said the purpose of 2015 agreement with the rebel SPLM-Io and other groups was "to bring the warring parties together to silence the guns in our country".

He once again repeated that the IGAD brokered peace agreement was "not a good agreement" imposed by the outsiders who wanted it to be signed on 17 August 2015.

"(But) I did not sign. I said this agreement I will sign it in Juba after having consulted with my people and I came back and took seven days, consulted with different groups and after that I invited the IGAD leaders to come to Juba and they came,” he added.

President Kiir signed the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan on 26 August 2015.

The national dialogue, he said, was not welcomed from the beginning by foreign diplomats in the country but has now been gradually accepted by those who did not show interest from the start and have now started to join slowly the process.

    Kiir, should know that national dialogue committee are not more powerful to decide the scale of the states of country, national dialogue committee are on beach to be forces by president orders which mean that they are fearing reversed the president orders. Let Kiir works alone on whatever he thinks to be the best in his leadership.

      who cares about what you’re saying and who cares about your criminal opinions anyways? it is up to you to join national dialogue or not, just stay in the bush until you get shot with a big weapon so you can feel a big bullet in your body before you die, than Riek will collect your spirit to make him more strong

          You stupid bitch, you think like South Sudan is for president Kiir alone, everything that concern this country leadership it means it concerns it’s people to, it is not professional thing in any country to leave president to design or desite on everything alone, Kiir doesn’t own the country, he is just a president

          Ayuiu Makuac Lam,

          Leave folks like john akeen to showcase their political deficiency that borders on zealotry...Any South Sudanese must know that not everything that Kiir says or does is right. Kiir has made mistakes and continues to make more mistakes but zealots continue to die in his support. I am not surprised..!

        These jienge bastards must know we’re following them each step and revenge is for sure. We know where they live in Jubaand unless they fly out of Juba, but we swear by God, for the thousands of Equatorians, Nuers, Collos and Fertits, the spilled blood must be avenged. Eye4eye blood4blood. No reconciliation, no peace.

          jubaone,

          Leave big talks to real men who know to fight, you are a little guy who like to eat, have women and have alcohol. Today in jubaone, I saw a sign "Juba NA Bari", well that sign needs to be changed to " Juba NA Junuubiin". I love Juba, my city. Security in South Sudan is very good, a few rebels are in Uganda border and Ethiopia border, we are winning.

      in the book of Isaiah, the Bible describes the woe of Sudan. the " country of whirring (insect) wings." that was " always feared, a people mighty and masterful ".such ominous Biblical prophecies do not lend themselves to peace and may condemn the Sudanese to eternal conflict. the book of Ezekiel describes the people of Cush taking part in an apocalyptic war against Gog,a chief who came from Magog.

    This should have been the case from day-to-day one when 32 states were form.It is very hard to comphrend since the public did not understand as how do the state get form!firstly they have to know the population of each, geographical, cultural heritage, social circumstances n regional composition,these are the elements of state composition or else any other Farmington is not a correct formula

    And why the heck did he created the 28 and 32 states before consulting the people if he knew consultation is the first thing he should have done?

    This Mzee is getting too old.
    Let me help you; reverse it to 10 states.
