Discussions will mainly focus on the revitalization of the peace process.

Information minister, Michael Makuei said they welcome the IGAD team.

On Thursday, the regional bloc announced the adjournment of the peace talks to 17-21 May, citing the need for more time to allow the continue engaging the various parties involved in the peace talks.

Meanwhile, Community Empowerment for Progress Organization (CEPO) welcomed the regional bloc’s decision to directly engaged the South Sudan negotiating parties on matters of effective compromises prior to the phase of the revitalization forum.

“It is great that IGAD responded to our pastcalls for lobbying South Sudan negotiating parties for effective compromises,” CEPO said in a statement.

It urged IGAD leaders to push South Sudan’s neighbours against advancing their interest, ignoring the war in the young nation.

“CEPO is urging IGAD leadership to be transparent in keeping the South Sudanese informed about any development their accomplishments towards the attainment of peace for South Sudan,” it said, while urging the regional bloc to issue public statements after consulting each of the negotiating parties.

    IGAD should ask itself, what they really want and not ask what the warring parties want. The ARCISS 2015 was very explicit and they should have held the kiirminal fully responsible for breaching the peace deal. Let us fight it out bitterly among ourselves, if Jienges win let them take SS as they wish and if the others win, it’s over. Jienges understand defeat only. No discussions.

      Some a few coward tribes can not win any war in South Sudan. Yes, they can send their relatives to refugee camps in neighboring countries and then cry for help. That’s is what we are seeing in South Sudan right now. What is the solution for this? Peace.

          Then shut up loser and leave us to fix things in South Sudan. You will come latter when everything is running very smoothly. This is what you did from 1983 to 2005. You just came back to South Sudan in 2005 to enjoy the fruit of our struggle. Shut up monkey and leave us alone.

They have to be fed, housed and asses wiped clean like toddlers. Wake up ya Aryan jienges. Equatoria has made you" human" ya mbororo, shawal faham. Stinking skunk.

        South South,
        Savages often destroy and are too stupid and foolish to effect and sensible and constructive developments. Just use your raw and uncontrollable fighting urge to build your worthless jienge lives. That would spare us lots of trouble trying to civilize you. Was it the jienge or the cow 🐮 that came first, ya MTN?

        South South,
        You seems to be just another online troll. Why don’t you ask the right questions? On this propagandists forum. Why are the IGAD tell the losers like Pagan Amuom, Rebecca Nyandeng, Majak Agoot, Lam Akol, Thomas Cirillo, Adwok Nyabe & other losers, thieves & traitors to come back to South Sudan & join the National dialogue? Since their aimless armed rebellion had been utterly crushed>>>

          on the ground? But lowly informed South Sudanese just want to gibberish here & there all the times. But they don’t always ask the real questions. There are problems in Darfur, Southern Kordufan, Southern Blue Nile, DRC, CAR, Libya, Eritrea, ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya or Burundi>>>

      I mentioned this awhile ago that there would be disaster at/after the 3rd round of the HLRF. IGAD became jittery and wrote to me to give them a hint....

      As for South South, monkey poop and cowards are still missing on his menue today.

          South South,

          I have neither confirmed or denied to you that I am a man or a woman. I am the Eastern Rock.

          That being said, the IGAD team is in Juba to consult with those who’ve drawn a REDLINE IN THE SAND.....More monkey stew please!

          You jienge loser. You have never fought any battles neither have you dismembered and mounted an AK-47. Jienge village idiot trying to be an intellectual. Go fight in your junk states, in Equatoria, we use our brains. Squatting in Juba won’t make you intelligent either. You are a jienge sakit. Case closed. Kokora ya Koror.

              Oh really? One really doesn’t have to be a psychologist neither a physician to tell that "these" ??? are sick. If you live your entire life so intimately with a cow, you think and act like one. Except cows don’t rape or kill but both have no conscience cuz they shit 💩 arbitrarily without shame and remorse.

      Time for IGAD to stop this shuttle Addis-Juba. The problem resides in Juba. It is up to South Sudanese to take the matter into their own hands and remove the folks they "elected" rather than waiting for a solution from IGAD . Men up and get these folks out. You are losing sleep, weight, while those folks in Juba (J1) are gaining weight and sleeping pretty well.

    I am sick of IGAD for treating Salva Kiir like a younger sibling in the family. This consultation should be done in the another country not in S. Sudan....Juba is a part of conflict and it should be treated same like IO

      Do you idiot think with your anus or brain? By the way, in IGAD document, no country can be used by the aimless & lawless ragtags like yours. Just watch in a couple of weeks, l would be damn if you would not be like LRA. As with ethiopia & North Sudan, we have a plan B, C & even D to deal with you & them.

    One by one, regime supporters will quit and in the process spill more beans. Cirilo, Malong, Teler, etc. A leading East African Journalist, Charles Onyango-Obbo recently said and I quote "In South Sudan, Salva Kiir can’t fake it until he makes it." And certainly, Kiir can’t make it; he’ll ALWAYS FAKE IT!
