On 11 August, Bashir underwent a knee replacement surgery. He resumed his official duties after a period of convalescence that extended for more than a month.

Karti renewed accusations of Juba’s support to rebel groups in South Kordofan state, saying that Khartoum still has doubts that South Sudan has ended its support to Sudanese rebels.

“We do not have enough evidence that South Sudan does not support rebels,” he said.

    Mrs. Kiir M7 is a lower life President I have never seen in this world…Mrs. President is completely hopeless, worthless to the Nation and helpless…why she is always running to Khartoum, while Omer Hassan al-Bashir in another hand is hardly to visit Juba even if there is an event that involves the regions’ head of States like just once past…

      Nyankiir Museveni is like an adulterous woman who sleeps with rival concubines at the same time. How come he kisses Bashir and Museveni in the same bed. Shame on Nyankiir. Bashir has already disowned her and will always deceive her because she is not a trustworthy woman.

      Good move, we have many issues that connect us with Khartoum. We should not leave Khartoum for rebels, Riak alliance with Khartoum in 1991 and fought SPLM/SPLA but he did not succeed so Khartoum does not truth him any longer.
