April 22, 2019 (JUBA) - South Sudan President Salva Kiir called on the leader of the main opposition group, SPLM-IO that signed the revitalized peace agreement to return to Juba as soon as possible warning that he would not delay the formation of the transitional government.

The accord’s flaws and the lack of international financial support to its implementation delayed the implementation of the pre-transitional period and particularly the reunification of the armies and tribal boundaries.

This situation pushed the SPLM-IO to propose to delay of the formation of the transitional government scheduled for next May pointing that the full implementation of the security arrangements is the only guaranty to avoid the bloody setback of July 2016.

President Salva Kiir in his Easter Massage on Saturday however clearly rejected this option saying that "any delay to the formation of the government would crush the hopes of our people for peace".

"The whole Agreement hinged on the formation of the unity government and any delays to this would be an act of bad faith in the eyes of our people," he said, stressing that "The country is ready for a new spirit and the dawn of a new sense of national unity and no better way to express this than to create a government that brings all parties together".

He added that at the end of the spiritual retreat with Pope Francis and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby he thought that Machar would jump with him in the same plane with him and return to Juba.

"so that we can quickly form a new government and use the papal message to bring peace among our people," he stressed.

Nonetheless, Kiir admitted that the Agreement has a lot of challenges, but added that with political will they can deal with any challenges arising during its implementation.

The SPLM-IO media official Manawa Peter Gatkuoth earlier this month said they believe that the security arrangements are more important than the formation of the transitional government.

He said they made several concessions to make progress in this respect but they are frustrated by the delay in the implementation of every measure they agree with the government.

He pointed out that the 700-strong presidential protection force, which the parties agreed on last March to deploy in the capital, is not yet established. Also, the parties agreed to ban the presence of armed militias in the capital but obviously there is no sign for its withdrawal from Juba, he added.

    FOOLS...! Maintaining the status quo does not require Dr. Machar’s presence in Juba; Taban Deng is already in town. Why is Kiir bothered. Let’s see how expensive it will be to maintain the status quo though...!

      The jienge is inherently a poor and lazy thinker. He is an emotional than a reasonable creature. Cantonment, demilitarization of major towns, deployment of RPF, TBC on ethnic boundaries and number of states, release of all political prisoners etc. have not been implemented and yet the jienge wants a RTGoNU. Riek is analytical the kiirminal not. Who cares anyway? We want jienge-free Equator

        jubaone,

        Kiir and his sycophants think doing all that is costly because it will deny them the free access to the petro-dollar. Now let SPLA-IO think outside the box. Omar el Bashir the chief Machiavellian of the R-ARCSS is gone. Lets see how far Museveni’s negative influence would continue to embolden Kiir. We are closely watching!

        The tall nuer with a very small head, who is Taban Deng?!

        I only know of one El Tabani Deng, who I am told, was sired by a Darfuri salt and onion trader in Bentiu. The mother of this man is said to be a nuer woman who was given up by her family and left to devices of the northern men in Rubkona/Bentiu markets....

    I have been telling people the dead Jieng peace signed in Khartoum will not survive because it’s intension was totally different. Machar should have rejected it straight away on day one despite the promise of becoming FVP in Juba under the same rotten government. This time Riek should prepare to run for the fourth time like a woman through upper Nile not Mundri and Maridi to Congo.

    Real Man sticks to his words. Regime change, Federal system of governance, full stop. Let them wait and see what real men do. Cheap games by Salva can’t shake a single mountain in Equatoria and he even knows it very well. I am not surprise when hearing and seeing such negligence by Dinka. Don’t ever agree to sit and settle issues with them. Riek go back to war.

    KIIR is not for peace, status quo is his tool to delay the implementation of the peace process. Certain prerequisites need to be in place in order to form a government. Kiir is nothing but a dictator, South Sudanese understand it but are not willing to change it. They fought the Arab oppression but accept oppression from one of their own. SAD!!!!

You should be thankful, that Karo People and Equatoria at large have raised you jienges to a humanly standard. We dressed you up, fed you like toddlers and now educating you savages. Now you must go home and practice what we taught you, jienge.

Business Administration, Commerce or such lukewarm social sciences is all they need. If at all, some elementary arithmetic just to be able to count stolen cows or monies. Wasaka.

Yes, internet war is there, but who will pay attention to weak people? No one. Anyone who wants to get anything in South Sudan must come through opened door, not through internet.

          Just forget it. We have 32 states yet jienge squatters and lazy idiots are still idling in Juba, Nimule, Torit or Malakal. Only when war is brought to these towns and jienges forced to go back to their luaks, we will need additional 32 states to make 64 states. Now you have no fucking business in Nimule or otherwise. You go home. Kokora or death. No discussions. Case closed. Next.
