Minister Martin Elia Lomuro, according to the government spokesman and the minister of information, Michael Makuei Lueth, was nominated by the cabinet of the transitional government of national at its regular meeting chaired by President Salva Kiir last Friday.

Lomuro, according to minister Lueth, has the full backing of the whole government and was going to participate in the forum with an open mind and in good faith on behalf of the unity government.

The appointment of Minister Lomuro as the lead representative of the government has received mixed reactions from the public with government critics and peace advocates expressing doubts about the sincerity with which the government wants to participate in the revitalization forum.

Many believe Lomuro was one of the hardliners and those wanting to push through the government views and agenda in every process as a way to preserve the current status quo. Also, analysts and observers are keen to underline Lomuro has always been a pipe through which government views are expressed in order to paint a different picture of other political parties and forces in the country upon which the government would capitalize, using it as the position and voice of other political parties.

This appointment follows a statement by the UN Security Council in which it urged all parties engaging in the revitalization of the 2015 peace agreement to agree on strong monitoring and enforcement mechanisms that will ensure cost and consequences for those who violate the agreement.

The Security Council on Thursday endorsed the IGAD (Intergovernmental Authority on Development) -led High-Level Revitalization Forum which will kick off on Monday 18 December.

The 15-member body acknowledged that the conflict in South Sudan continues to cause great suffering and expressed deep regret that the parties had not heeded its calls for a permanent ceasefire.

"We would like to see the parties avoid these consequences by engaging with the IGAD revitalization,” said Matthew Rycroft, the Permanent Representative of the United Kingdom to the UN.

“If they fail to do that, then the consequences we are talking about are either imposing an arms embargo and or introducing targeted sanctions. “The Council urged all parties to engage constructively in the process without preconditions and end hostilities as they had pledged.

Referring to a briefing received from IGAD Special Envoy Ismail Wais on pre Forum consultations, the Council also urged the parties to agree to an implementation timeline, monitored arrangements to stop the conflict and a political process with an agreed path to viable elections.

        When your Riek Machar was stranded in Adis Ababa in 2015, some of you idiots used to sing that same bullshit that the South Sudanese economy is tanking & so what? When your Riek Machar came back to South Sudan, what did he brought from your damn hotels, bars & brothels of Adis Ababa? None, Nil, zilch---in fact his mercenaries were transported back to Juba by the UN mercenaries>>>

    Martin Lumoro has been always representing views of his leader Bona Malual Madut Ring since they were successful in penetrating the SPLM party.
    Nothing new these folks will participate with and they try their best to block other oppositions to keep their dirty mess to the people and the country!!!
    Bona has become the spiritual leader of Juba SPLM!!!

          We are holding it right now, but we have a few people hiding in the bushes and in the refugee camps. First, we will see what they will say about revitalization. If they refuse it, our plan B is already in place and they know it. Riek thinks he is a smart guy to make useless man from Equaotiria as the head of his delegation to deceive us, well look to our delegation, we can play very smart cards to

              I am not sure what Sudanese, Kenyans and Ugandans have to do with the selection of the heads of delegates for revitalization.My point is very clear I am dead sure you got it. Of course, you are dying because our neighbors from the South part of our border are standing with us, big time.

          Eastern,
          In my earlier posting I stated clearly that the Kiirminal and nyagat Taban would not go for the HLRF. In such critical moments you get the best Equatorian for the job. Either Dr Lomuro is a submissive jienge errand boy or an eloquent and articulate statesman with the stuff to get peace. One thing is clear: Nothing will change and war will continue unabated.

            The only best thing Mr. Lomuro would do right now is quit the government and declare his opposition against jienges cesspool in Juba.This is a rare window of opportunities to rescue oneself from a sinking boat.He should salvage his reputation and self esteem and preserve his personal integrity by joining NAS or IO.Foreign observers wonder why this man still clinch to that dead....

        South South,
        There’s NO peace until you let the Kiirminal grow teeth once again. That is of course impossible bcoz jienges in their own understanding acknowledge a total demise and not negotiations or are not sentimental. Junubin must be ready for another 20 yrs of war. That is for sure. UI/NAS/NDF et al must gear up cos the current war is asymmetric, no winner except losers.

This government will be voted out peacefully and with respect such that you fools get trained on how system work. Yes Lomuro is member of Forum with full mandate from the government and the party so you must expect Bona Malual advising him no matter hate you are crying

    Mr. Mathew Rycroft
    The culture of imposing arms embargo on young nation is not a solution neither. We South Sudanese people are fully aware that, this conflicts in new country was not only created by Southern Sudanese themselves but also the outsider interest groups have hands to blamed them and it is only God knows how the people will come to their realization and accepts peace by themselves.

    Mr. Martin Elia Lomuro and his team please, tell them that there is a national unity government in the place already but what needed is arrangement only to integrated those refusal groups of Riek Machar that is all needed. No imposed agreement, no another negotiable, it is done already and these rebels must surrenders if they wanted peace to take place

      by the way if your uncle Kirr did not tell you what he rec’d last month.
      1- This called national unity is not recognised
      2- All the states are not recognised
      3- etc.. Why Governmet is hiding this information from public instead of singing People choice.

      The principle signatories of ARCSS are the ones to make national unity government if the peace talks can materialize.
      Taban Deng is a figure head, stooge and a criminal. He should vacate the chair to Riek.

      First Cabinet Minister of government of South Sudan will represent government of South Sudan and not Pujulu tribe. He is a prime minister of government of South Sudan. Second, Michael Makuei will still has very strong voice whether he leads the delegation or not will not stop him from airing his voice in the meetings. You will see.

    Masiah and your rebel associates you are deluding yourselves of an imaginary collapse of Juba government. To the contrary it is the opposition is dwindling and collapsing. Are you not following news of daily defection of rebels to Juba? What about NASA chasing IO-Nuer out of Equatoria? Juba is now booming, light everywhere, prices stabilizing, beautiful queens are coming back to Juba, etc.

      Just like any jienge dummies, Juba and Equatoria at large is SS, the rest are just uncivilized savages without identity and value. I like how you acknowledge and cherish Juba. Juba and Equatoria is your destiny without which, you could as well opt to walk 🚶 naked. This explains why jienges would rather die 💀 for Juba. Food!

      You have never been to Juba lately or perhaps in your entire godamn jienge life. The jienge republic and government is done; bankrupt, tired and hungry. With civil servants not paid for over 6 months, armed thugs scavenging on poor civilians, inflation at 400%, jienge hoardes begging in the streets of Juba (even when there´s no war in jiengeland), things are pretty nasty.

        Kiir should have rejected the so-called IGAD HLRF if he was in charge as his sycophants want to portray. The HLRF is an indictment on the Kiir-Taban alliance. The world tried to cobble something excluding those to reckon with in South Sudan and it has not yielded any good result more than one year later.

          The ludicrous IGAD political arithmetic of excluding Riak as a gateway to realizing peace in SS was stupid and costly. Like idiots, they hit the rocks and had to redo it allover again. The HLRF is proof. Kiirminal and Taban have been ensnared and can only send it a clever Equatorian as flagship. They will be indicted to ICC 😎

    In the battle fields, the damned NGUNDAENg’s white army have been screwed flat. In peace talks the IO politicians were/are beaten 10-0. IO hurried in 21 states, government operationalised 32 states, and in peace time to come Riek will be screwed dog style with 99.9% to 0.1%.Either way the IO is losing folks. You are in a nightmare.
