January 21, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudan President Salva Kiir, is currently visiting South Africa in a bid to advocate for maintaining in confinement his main political rival and the leader of the armed opposition Riek Machar and to exclude him personally from future interim arrangements.

President Kiir who arrived on Friday to South Africa is accompanied on the trip by the Minister of Defence, Kuol Manyang, the Minister in the Office of the President, Mayiik Ayii Deng, and Minister of Petroleum, Ezekiel Lul.

“The president is visiting South Africa for two main reasons. One he is going to deliver a unified message of the transitional government of National Unity that Riek Machar should continue to remain outside the country during the interim period of the revitalized peace agreement," a presidential aide told Sudan Tribune on Sunday.

The official who preferred anonymity stressed that the implementation of the peace agreement needs cooperation and this was lacking from Riek.

"Now his Excellency is cooperating well with the First Vice President Gen Taban Deng Gai and because of this cooperation, there has been a significant improvement and in the working relations and progress in the implementation of the peace agreement has been made," he further said from Pretoria where he is part of the presidential delegation.

In October 2016 Machar left Khartoum to Pretoria officially for medical treatment. But in fact, his travel had been decided in a common agreement between the IGAD countries, South Africa and Washington was involved in the decision.

One month later, the former first vice-president successfully escaped his residence in Pretoria and reached Khartoum and Addis Abba. But he was forced to return to South Africa as the Sudanese and Ethiopian authorities refused to allow him to enter into their territories.

The South Sudanese presidential aide said the other message Kiir has delivered to President Jacob Zuma, for his government and the leadership of the African National Congress is to continue to talk to Riek Machar to denounce violence.

He further said that President Kiir and the transitional government of national unity accept the representation of Machar’s faction in future arrangements but not himself.

In June 2017, Machar called on the UN Security Council to end in order his forced exile in South Africa and to allow him to engage in a peaceful settlement of the conflict.

Juba government believes that Machar should be kept far from the country during the reviltalization process and the end of the peace agreement implementation in a way that he can only run for the presidential election.

    EXCELLENT! Insecurity, hyperinflation, roadside killings, etc will continue unabated! Kiir is shortsighted; he thinks Dr. Machar is an individual. The man has many followers who are scuttling the Kiir-Taban alliance of deceit...

      The main purpose of Kiir traveling to South Africa is to personally speak to Riak Machar, face to face and make dubious deals behind close doors.This is clear.Kiir is increasingly getting frustrated with his tribal vermin the JCE.So he’s now toddling up his personal endeavors and approaches to seek orientations.Well cow boy Kiir,why didn’t you make up those distinct moves earlier enough before...

              Dinka liberated South Sudan. This is going to be one of the biggest accomplishment Dinka did in their history. You talk like someone who has no education, even though you have good one. War and development are two different sides of coin. When you have war, you stop develop and take care of war first, that’s what our government in South Sudan is doing right now.

Desperately trying to educate their kids in Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe to be like Equatorians with looted monies? You need another 60 yrs or just carry the guns while we carry the pens. Rather be a coward and intelligent than carry a gun and an idiot.

                  If fake Arabs seduced young Dinka girls, it’s so bad and I consider it "rape". This is one reason we took up guns and chased away fake Arabs from South Sudan. About "KARAMA", it’s fact in Equatoria area. People drink alcohol, eat free food and then have sex all night . When a child is born after"KARAMA", mother wouldn’t know a father. A child is called "KARAMA"

                    Karama is a funeral for the dead after some time. Unlike the jienges who don’t value their dead and are left to be eaten by hyenas and vultures, I’m not aware of such practices. After all you have NEVER witnessed such and can’t tell us which tribe. Just pure jienge guess and wild thinking.

                  This is Majesty, not new person. I want to clarify two points for readers who may not know. 1.There’re two Marial baai: one where i’m from in Aweil had/has no such. The other marial baai which is part of Wau (city) and one you may be alluding to might possibly had such in 1970s, i wasn’t there. What I know it’s true then or today, Dinka may be majority in Wau but not on prostitution.

                    2. You said Dinka don’t bury their deads but leave them for birds & wild animals instead. Such don’t exist in all sections of Dinka. Matter fact, for fear of dead being dug out by wild animals, Dinka don’t just bury dead but are required to dig grave very deep, bury the dead within the compound and guide that grave for a month or two. Maybe you referring Taposa, I know 100% some don’t bury deads.

      2. He’s scared to death 💀 that Riak’s release will mean his demise

          I am actual want to see Southern Sudanese loving each other than tearing them apart. The under-house arrest of Riek Machar is the combination of things. 1 The way he conduct his SPLA IO is terrorist style for example road side ambushed on buses, killing civilians. 2 He gave 6000 his SPLA IO to Omar al Bashir and Bashir send them to fights in Yemen this is crimes. 3 He never listen.

        It is only that your hands are on the resources of the country that makes you politically arrogant. However when the monetary resources of the country wither you will have nothing but to run for your lives.

        No one hates Dinka as a tribe. Note that what they detest is Jengeism, rape, mass murder, land grabbing which those who perpetrate them from individuals from that community has brought into our political and military landscape. So if you are not one of them you are exonerated. Remember there is time to enjoy those evil acts but also there is going to be answers for those acts.

    Peace talks aren’t automatically peace till they bring peace, and peace can’t be genuine (one) if others are (intentionally) left out.

Well, you can say whatever come to your mind but doesn’t mean you are smart than I do.

    Peace is already at the door. I absolutely agree with you. Kiir should be detained in South Africa together with Riek and SPLA must take over temporarily, invite all armed groups for sincere talks and elections without any General running. IGAD and TROIKA should not miss this golden chance. The two must be sent to ICC right away. Oh my God, save this country!!

    250000 SOUTH SUDANESE CHILDREN COULD DIE BY JULY OF 2018, I WOULD SAY WILL DIE IF NO END OF HOSTILITIES BY END OF JANUARY AND YOUR ONLY WORK PLAN AS LEADER OF A COUNTRY IS TO KEEP AWAY THE LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION, WHAT A SHORT SIGHTED MORON. KIIR, YOU HAVE FAILED THE NATION, YOURSELF, TIME TO RESPECTFULLY RESIGN AND GO TO YOUR COUNTRY OF CHOICE. DO NOT WAIT, YOU MAY LOSE IT ALL. NOT A THREAT.

    How many peoples suffering for this senseless war Ya uneducated president? We have tired with your maladministration. I hope, this message which you delivered to South Africa president will not help you. How many months did Dr. Machar spent from South Africa while the war still continue? This stupid act will not help you with your brother Ibrahim Taban Mohamed..

    Maintaining him in South Africa 🌍 is not going to cost the government of the day a lot of money 💵!?
    I think this is not a good idea to keep him hostage there, we need him to come and participate in the peace accord if we want a permanent peace ? 🔥 fire.
    There is no peace and reconciliation without forgiveness!
    We need to come to the table and resolve the issue
    Amicably
