October 10, 2018 (JUBA) - Deng Alor, a leading member of the SPLM-Former Detainees (FDs) arrived in Juba on Wednesday to be the first opposition leader to return to the south Sudanese after the signing of the revitalized peace agreement last September.

Following his arrival at Juba airport, Alor told reporters he came to attend the meeting of the pre-transitional committee which had been scheduled for 4 October.

"I came to attend the first meeting of the pre-transitional committee," he said. Also, Dhieu Mathok Minister of Dam and Electricity who received Deng on at the airport said Alor is in Juba on an invitation by committee chairperson and presidential adviser Tut Kew Gatluak.

However, it is believed that his visit to Juba was courtesy visit aiming to build confidence with the government it was agreed that the meeting would take place in Khartoum as the SPLM-IO representative and the committee’s deputy chair Oyet Nathaniel Pierino and SSOA chairperson and deputy chair declined to attend the meeting.

In accordance with the revitalized peace agreement, the opposition leaders would return to the country at the end of the pre-transitional period.

Alor arrived in Juba from Nairobi where he participated in a meeting of FDs leaders to ratify the peace pact together with the other leaders of the opposition group.

The group said they endorsed the revitalized peace agreement stressing that they believe more efforts are needed to ensure the implementation of this imperfect deal and to build on it for a better future for the country.

The group leader and former SPLM secretary general Pagan Amum had voiced his rejection of the deal together with some opposition groups of the South Sudan Opposition Alliance.

However, Alor told reporters in Juba that Amum has changed his mind and now he is backing the revitalized peace agreement.

During his stay in Juba, the former foreign minister is expected to meet President Salva Kiir.

The International community and the Troika countries, in particular, say they need to be convinced about the parties’ commitment to the peace deal before to support and provide the needed funds for its implementation.

      Jobless, penniless and confused, Ahmed Deng Alor the non-South Sudanese jienge from Abyei must bootlick and humbly return to the kiirminal for a job to survive like a domestic dog. The Abyeian who built a lavish palace in Juba Rock City close to the South Sudan Football Federation office is a known political hustler. FD is akin to freed thugs who swindled over $12m alone as former foreign..

        ..and cabinet minister. Accused of having an extra marital affair with the eldest daughter of the kiirminal that ended in pregnancy. This Abyei scammer alone gave over $6m to his Habbesha wife to get his govt home/residence at Hai Amarat refurbished. None raised an eyebrow. Now this very Abyei jienge hustler is back. The kiirminal will forgive him, afterall he (Ahmed) fathered his grandchild.

          The return to Juba of this non-South Sudanese jienge from Abyei is simply boost the JCE ranks of putting up a jienge block ahead of the R-ACISS. Jienges have become paranoid and wondering what will happen next. They massacred Nuers, now trying out the same in Equatoria. God forbid, this time Juba must burn and jienge elites are in Juba. Quite reachable. Blood4blood.

    Deng Alor has done "HARAKAT ALdo".
    He deserted his post as Foreign Minister and now coming back for another post and role in the government? This is exactly what’s wrong with South Sudan. Rewarding bad behavior... The guy is a deserter and have violated the trust of the nation, his colleagues in FDs.
