December 10, 2017 (JUBA) - South Sudan president Salva Kiir has written a letter to the chairperson of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), seeking ways to end the ongoing civil war, which has displaced more than two million people.

President Kiir, in a 6 December 6 letter, openly protested the endorsement of the pre-forum consultation report IGAD’s special envoy, which excluded the coalition government’s participation.

“I write to register my sincere disappointment, on behalf of the transitional government of national unity, on the IGAD council of ministers sideline meeting of the 28 November 2017, held in Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire, in which progress towards the conduct of the high-level Revitalization was discussed in absence of South Sudan”, the letter reads in part.

The South Sudanese leader claimed the report represented views of the country’s former detainees and other opposition at the expense of the government, ignored government views as well as proposals.

“The report in the main epitomizes views of the FDS (former detainees) and other opposition groups. The TGONU (Transitional Government of National Unity) only presented to the IGAD council of ministers, during its visit to Juba from 13- 14 November 2017, a combination of elucidations and preliminary proposals. The response of the IGAD to the TGONU, as submitted by Mr Ismail Waise, was surficial, completely failing to satisfactorily respond to the questions advanced by TGONU”, Kiir wrote in a letter extended to Sudan Tribune.

An emotional charged Kiir accused IGAD’s special envoy of failing to engage the coalition government on its views as well as position.

Kiir said the South Sudan’s coalition government does not accept the pre-forum report by Waise, which was also approved by the IGAD council of ministers.

In June, a summit of IGAD heads of state and government decided to convene a meeting of the signatories of the South Sudan peace agreement to discuss ways to revitalize the peace implementation. During the June summit, it was agreed that all groups be included in the discussion aimed at restoring a permanent ceasefire.

IGAD unveiled the timetable for the revitalization forum with South Sudanese leaders and the citizens, which ended on 17 October.

The South Sudanese government earlier warned that the revitalization forum by the regional bloc, which mediated the 2015 peace deal, should not be another platform for negotiations of the peace accord between the two factions to the conflict.

Over a million people have fled South Sudan since conflict erupted in December 2013 when President Kiir sacked Machar from the vice-presidency. Tens of thousands of people have been killed and nearly two million displaced in South Sudan’s worst violence since it seceded from Sudan in July 2011.

    IGAD are moneymaker, they will always come up with something that would keep their paychecks running. If the government and rebels don’t committe themselves and bring their very own conflict into a lasting peace, then expect 100 years to fight yourselves. IGAD is not a country, it’s a representative from all over the world. Why would they care about South Sudan? Think twice!

      give peace chance, stop defending Jieng tribe or kirr, do you think Kirr will remain there 4ever, peace will come if people like it or not. the worse part if peace come thru force then other people will pay price, the early is better than later because if you think you’re Queen of English in South Sudan then you’re deceiving yourself.

Dr. John garang after the CPA aggreement, he use only one word at the interview and that word killed him.

          I knew the Kiirminal would renege and his snubbing the IGAD ahead of the HLRF is just an indication. The IGAD, US, Troika with the help of the UNMISS and RPF should just issue an arrest warrant against the Kiirminal. Dont argue with dictators, they are simply wiped off by force. The time is now over when a single illiterate idiot has duped learned people

              Well, there´s nothing wrong with help as long as it gets a regime change. The US, Troika, UNMISS and RPF are already on the ground and soon you will hear good news. Nikki Haley has given you a shot already, next your Kiirminal will be indicted to ICC or at worst killed and dragged out from his hideout like Sadam or Gadaffi. He is already shitting for fear. Where next?

Remember this. Iraq andnLibya are very dear lessons to US. US will not start another war in the world. Asad of Syria would be out by now, the lessons from Iraq and Libya are keeping him in power, wicked, shut up.

We need someone who is care about the life of others. IInstead of keeping someone who does not care about the life of others. For example, people are dead in un protection camp. No care about thier life in this country.

      He would have saved lives and money and presented a great example in July, 2013 if he listened to historical colleagues who knew how the movement was run, but he preferred to listen to Bona Malual and Khartoum’s Boys!!!

    Anyway, to the chagrin of the rebels, let IGAD continue to capitalize and make money out of their meaningless rebellion and death because they lack common sense and reasoning capacity. They don’t do thorough periodical analyses of what they have been gaining out of this Pandora’s box of a rebellion. IGAD is enflamming and fanning the war again and more deaths and destruction are on the offing.

While hotels are being cleaned up and made neat for marathon negotiations in which a group of having nothing with their money will be asked to pay 200 million dollars.
