In line with the implementation matrix of the revitalized peace agreement, the Transitional National Legislature comprising the Transitional National Legislative Assembly (TNLA) and the Council of States should ratify the peace pact within seven days of the signature.

Once tabled for parliamentary approval by Minister of Justice Paulino Wanawila Unango, the agreement was unanimously adopted by the Members of Parliament (MPs) of the two houses.

NLA Speaker Anthony Lino Makana welcomed this great achievement saying it shows that the MPs of the two Houses are for peace.

Analysts in Juba say now after the parliamentary consent they expect that the release of the political detainees and prisoners of war take place soon.

      Malakal county Simon,
      All the signatories of the agreement need to come in in order for for the all out process, we can’t micro-implement an agreement. All is needed is transparent of the prisoners, weather those in jail committed what level of crime. All opposition leadership must come in first. This must sound weird but I am stating the facts.

        SS is an empty country that is made up of armed tribal gangs posing as an army, a bunch of hand-picked semi illiterate goons pretending to be law makers. With $16m given to them recently, they can only do what they are told to do. If the kiirminal tells them to reject the peace deal, they will do it. Junubin don’t matter to them.

          That’s indeed a bad news for you since you never dreamed of peace from your mother’s womb. You still go ahead and rebel farther than you’re, it will bother no one! The peace lover will take it from here. Shut up the shithole out there!

              All empty noises, when are you coming to South Sudan? There’s always little issues here and there in any country, so do South Sudan? Remember that, South Sudanese people owned this peace.

            Kush Natives,

            Maybe you should call yourself ’Bush Baboon’.I really don’t think you understand what is going on in South Sudan at global level here.You and your entire jienges are nothing else but bunch of worthless miscreants on two feet.This peace you propagate and talk about online or so, is nothing else but measly wicked jienge peace,which is solely void, offensive and non beneficial to any..

                  Trash bags, find out a better way to talk, you’re losing temper for something that you will not stand up for. Come back to South Sudan first as see yourself how beautifully it’s. I am here central Equatoria doing my normal routine business. Pick up whatever you want and come see me here!

              The Rhino, you should join NAS with Jubaone or stop crying and join the peace accord.

                NAS is not radical enough cuz it has accommodated useless jienges, nyagats and Murle child abductors and cattle rustlers who have no political ambition whatsoever. I am forming a "Equatoria Patriotic Front EPF", whose goal is clean up Equatoria from pervasive miscreants and "Hashraat".

                  What are you forming? Monkey rebellion or rat rebellion? What will you achieve by your own while you miserably failed within NAS pocket? Be a man by principal. You haven’t gained anything since 2013, better accept the facts that you’re a death loser!

                    Good that you have no village and will live a refugee your entire jienge life. You have no human value and must be treated like a cow. You just have to stoop low and crawl on your fours. You need a tail onto your shithole, horns onto your thick skull and ..viola! the jiengeman has turned into jienge cow
