The deputy chairman of the SPLM-IO, Henry Odwar, who has been leading the SPLM-IO peace talks group in Ethiopia, led the team that met Museveni.

Angelina Teny, who is part of the group, praised Museveni for warm reception during the Kampala meeting.

“He received us well and we really appreciate his interest to have a stable South Sudan. I don’t want to go into details but we had a good meeting with the president,” she said.

In 2016, Museveni and the South Sudanese armed opposition leader, Riek Machar held a meeting to discuss peace in South Sudan, with the Machar assuring the Ugandan leader he was committed to a new chapter of peace.

      Your right because you believe in rebellion since you are tribe with rebellion mentally. If you fight to the last to change regime than dumb in mind because you said it here on Internet but not the cause in Lou Nuer land. You still fighting here but people were given up that language. Good luck if you after rebellion.

      You are trouble for real. Low Nuer cannot do anything or cause problems. South Sudan is more significant than Lou Nuer. Bull Nuer alone can defeat you, and they are with the government. Lou Nuer cannot do anything; it is better for you to make peace so that your children can have a good life forward. You do not want to be the first to be crush by Nuer in the government.
