November 24, 2017 (JUBA) — The Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Special Envoy for South Sudan, discussed with the South Sudanese President and his deputies the organisation of a forum to revitalize the implementation of a peace deal signed in 2015.

The consultations come two weeks before an extraordinary meeting of the IGAD Council of Ministers on 11-12 December to discuss the technical modalities of the forum.

"The convening of the Forum will follow the meeting of the IGAD Council of Ministers. The Council is expected to provide further guidelines on the modalities, structure and other details on how the Forum will be organised" said a statement released by the IGAD on Friday.

During his visit to Juba, the IGAD Special Envoy Ismail Wais met with President Salva Kiir, First Vice President Taban Deng Gai, and Vice President James Wani Iga as well as members of the Council of Ministers of the national unity governmental.

"The Envoy briefed the partners of the regional effort in convening an inclusive Forum. He informed that so far, thirty-one consultative meetings were held with the various Parties, estranged groups and other key stakeholders," reads the statement.

The consultations included all the signatories of the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (ARCSS), the SPLM of President Kiir, SPLM-IO Taban Deng, SPLM-IO Rioek Machar, SPLM- FDs, and various political and civil society groups.

“Many of the positions advanced and proposals submitted during the consultation process were very valuable. They must be considered at some stage whether before, during or after the Revitalisation Forum, if the cycle of violence is to be broken and for lasting peace to be restored in South Sudan.”

The SPLM-IO Machar considers the forum as the key process to implement the ARCSS and to take part in its implementation, but President Kiir and his first deputy Gai want to limit the role of the process and to give the priority to the national dialogue and the SPLM reunification process.

The SPLM-IO Machar also wants its leader to be allowed to take part in the forum while the government partners believe that keeping him personally far from the forum will be of a general interest.

    If revitalization of the peace process belongs to the people of South Sudan then Kiir and Taban Deng should not have absolute say on the process. Anybody South Sudanese including Riek Machar must have the right to contribute to the process that may lead to perpetual peace in the country. South Sudan should not be treated as a property of Kiir and Taban Deng.

If Igad retorted peace back to southern sudan,they have to be involved both parties.I believe peace without include all parties in southern sudan.If Igad do not do that,it is going to be failure peace. One again ,nobody do making a peace by him or her they have to be different parts.

        Jur & chong,
        I agree with both of you. Peace is about humility, apology and inclusiveness. I don’t like Dr. Riek from any measure but he’s South Sudanese and South Sudan peace must include all South Sudanese.

    Every South Sudanese is a stakeholder and MUST be heard for their to be peace in the country. The country is where it is because some people dithered with EXCLUSIVITY which has proven costly and catastrophic. Don’t say I did not warn you....!

      Eastern,

      What do you have to issue warning as you are weak, powerless and very isolated. Anyone who wants to be a stakeholder of South Sudan MUST accept that this country has people who fought for it. People who were hiding during our struggle never spoke about wanting to join movement just for one day to show their support to their country, but now, they are making very empty noises.

        South South,

        You don’t have any shred of idea. The JCE tried to isolate Riek Machar so as to lord it over others, now see what happens....I repeat, EVERY South Sudanese is a stakeholder and MUST be involved whether they make EMPTY noises or not. The Second Republic of South Sudan shall never be the same again. Any person who wants to lead like a king will have sleepless nights.

          We are sleeping soundly in Juba and no one can stop us from sleeping. Those betrayers are the one sleepless under trees with their monkeys. Riek is a history man, forget about him. South Sudan is in our hands and anyone who wants good for South Sudan MUST speak to us. But, remember this, we are winning and you are losing. Losers can not give pre-conditions in any part of the world.

              I feel so bad about you in your DIASPORA, enjoy it. Iam enjoying Juba City. Dinka is a bigger tribe and you have to prepare to live with them everywhere in South Sudan if you want to come back to South Sudan. We will teach you and other wicked rebels until you accept everything we will teach you.

                Jienges are the only people on earth who have no home feelings bcoz they are everywhere and nowhere. They are like flies that follow the smell of food and stench. With $billion looted, they haven’t developed their luaks. God knows why he made them many but without use. They don’t have the brains Equatorians have. Just junk.

        South South,
        No one send you to fight for this country. You did it on voluntary service to free it from islamic,arab colonialism like many fighters from different ethnic background. But if you think you went to bush to fight Arabs because you want to own the country and her people as loots of war, then you are mistaken. We in South Sudan have places of origin that we call our homes.No one superior

          Jur,
          I know of many jienge tea sellers, shoe-shiners and street vendors from Khartoum who now have been made directors, security officers etc. These primitive savages have smeared our country with cow and human shit and so it stinks nasty. Everything just doesnt function like in their junk luaks. Chaos, anarchy, lawlessness, savagery and satan surely has found a domicile among jienges

          You are wrong, other tribes especially from Equatoria were very afraid of fake Arabs. Dinkas were left alone to fight and died, but, everyone came back to South Sudan looking for a good position after war. I accept that we have 64 tribes in South Sudan and I am willing to listen to them peacefully and find the best way to rule South Sudan, but, SPLA members are first.

            Why are you conceding by accepting that there are 64 tribes in South Sudan? Where has that Dinka fallacy of South Sudan as Dinka ONLY country evaporated to...? Moron...!

        You late comers to the struggle were just dusting jellaba markoub or hid yourselves in kakuma camp as refugess. Now you claim you fought for what? All battles were fought in Equatoria and Upper Nile, jiengeland had no wars and till now has NO strategic relevance, just "luak regions". Thats why all jienges are running away. Hopeless and useless

          You are very wicked. All fighting in Equatoria was done by Dinka, period. In Dinka land, we liberated Bor, Rumbek, Tonj, Gogrial, Yurol, Malualkon, Wanyjok, Warawar, Nyimlel, Marialbai, Gokmacahar, Alek Aguk, Wunrok, Turoali and many more , shut up coward.

            South South,
            Jiengeland has no strategic relevance at all. Equatoria and Upper Nile were critical for military supplies and logistics, that’s why Garang set a base in New Site or New Kysh. Most jienges were taken as slaves from Aweil to Babanysa, Elobeid while Bor jienges tan to Nimule or Kakuma. Cowards and impostors. You are cursed, worthless creatures.

                Did you fight to come and squat in Equatoria? Idiots and good for nothing. Not even your kiirminal has built a house in his village. Losers and vagabonds, drifters and lazy scoundrels, parasites and slaves. God has cursed you and will remain the eternal fools. You will remain dull like your cows only good to be slaughtered.

                  We fought everywhere and we are going to be everywhere. We slaughter cows and eat beef and steak, things that civilized people do. When it comes to you, you smell monkey poop. I am home, I am in Juba, you are in DIASPORA, you are a real vagabond,a gypsy

                    You child of a drifter and beggar. That is why we call jienges MTN. Your grandfathers were not buried anywhere but left to be eaten by hyenas and vultures. We Equatorians bury our loved ones around us and so identify with our lands. Jienges are like cockroaches, looking for where decent people live then they come. They sneak in the dark to scavenge for food and loot.
