Recent arrangements for peace in South Sudan are "not realistic": Troika

August 10, 2018 (JUBA) - The Troika countries Friday warned the IGAD mediators against the unsustainability of the arrangements recently agreed by the South Sudanese parties to resolve the outstanding governance and security issues.

"We are concerned that the arrangements agreed to date are not realistic or sustainable. Given their past leadership failures, South Sudanese leaders will need to behave differently and demonstrate commitment to peace and good governance," said a joint statement issued by the United States, United Kingdom and Norway.

On 5 August, the South Sudanese government and opposition groups signed an agreement on the outstanding issues on governance and power-sharing providing to establish a government with five vice-presidents, 45 ministers and a parliament composed of 550 members.

The government negotiating team refused the opposition calls for lean government and insisted to keep intact its ministerial team of 30 ministers and the 400 parliamentarians.

President Salva Kiir himself complained from the agreed bloated government saying he has no means to provide the needed accommodations and vehicles for all these people.

However, the Troika praised the engagement of the region in the Khartoum-based negotiations. Also, it acknowledged "the role of Sudan in hosting these negotiations".

The three countries underlined the need for an inclusive process encompassing civil society, religious leaders, ethnic minorities saying it is the best hope for a sustainable peace.

"We urge mediators to ensure the open and free participation of these groups and other participants in the negotiations, to ensure their interests are fully protected".

The facilitators further stressed that during the next stage of the talks, the parties must develop clear plans for the transition period.

This includes how resources will be "used in a transparent and accountable way" and how "security will be provided in Juba during the transition period and how meaningful checks will be placed on executive power"

In a meeting held in Khartoum on Thursday, the IGAd Council of Ministers endorsed an implementation matrix and decided that the Khartoum round of talks will continue until the 19 August.

    This is a clarion call to to the IGAD morons! Let IGAD countries use Birr, the Kenyan shillings, Ugandan shillings and the Sudanese pounds to support Kiir implement his agreement with Machar....Kiir was already whining over the bloated regime he insisted on...!

      So funny to see Eastern crying about money. Where those big talks of yours " Kiir must go, SPLA must be dismantled. It is over for Kiir and Riak, there are other stakeholders who will take over South Sudan". All these talks are over now and we want US stop money flowing to South Sudan. Wicked, we told you, you are nothing, shut up and enjoy your food stamp.

        Juronit, try selling your cows as well as return the billion $ stolen by your benydits and bandits. M7 and your bantu friends have lots of the stolen moneys in their countries which you badly need to uplift your wretched jienge communities. Foolish idiots only think of cars, good food while their own starve. Jienge

          We said this before, but you refused to listen. You, Eastern or other weak Equatoria called The Rhino are nothing, but stupid and weak. Anyone who lives in South Sudan can see very clearly that South Sudan needs only a little loan to start over its economy. This loan can come from Kenya or China, just very a little loan will put South Sudan up again.

You could "import" Habbesha, Ugandans and Kenyans to develop jiengelands cuz you’re just nuts. Equatorians can’t babysit you all your miserable jienge lives. Grow up boy!

            Why beg Kenya or China for little loan to put South Sudan up again?Lazy idiot,donors have now realized how greedy and corrupt jienge people are,so they are cautious and very skeptical to lend you dollars.Anybody with brain doesn’t beg,but works hard to finance himself.Sell your cow dung if profitable to lift your f**king jienge republic up again.

      TROIKA is stating facts! Khartoum deal is not inclusive,sustainable neither realistic.It does not encompass minority groups(ethnic minorities,civil society or religious leaders).The deal does not focus on lean or effective government.It is a shaky wobbly deal condemned to fail.This wicked drought organization called IGAD better get professional and solve East African crises more effectively...

        ...If IGAD’s leaders view South Sudan as Dinka or Nuer republic only,they are dead wrong,they’ll never solve anything.IGAD needs to invest more in Equatorians to lead the country,although I rather prefer Equatexit.Bottom line is,jienges and nyagats have been around since 2005 with best chances of lifting South Sudan out of extreme poverty,but perversely didn’t,instead they dragged the country ....

Sudan and other neighboring countries are highly appreciated for bringing their feuding brothers and sisters together and case closed.

                US is not a reliable country this day to ask for help unless Trump is not there. Just take this simple example, Kuwait, after Iraq invasion, Kuwait becomes 100% US ally, but with Trump in power and what he said about Kuwait, Kuwait signed a deal with China for 99 years to develop two islands with a deal worth 1 trillion USD. Why did Kuwait did that?

                  Kuwait did that because they realize that Trump will never help anyone in the world unless US get a big earning from any deal. Trump said US should sign a deal with Kuwait before US helped to liberate Kuwait from Iraq to get half of Kuwait resources. Whether there is peace or no peace Trump will never pour USD to SS.

                  I’m not surprised at all at your stinking attitude towards women. Pediatric psychology tells us that kids separated from their mums at tender age later turn to be rapists, molesters and abusers. Jienge kids weaned at about 2 yrs breastfed on cow milk where cows assume the maternal roles. Kids therefore adore the cows than their own mums

                    Jienge kids taken to luaks with their peers then feed on cow mik. They loose maternal love, become aggressive and are foolishly told to be manly. Results are traumatized young men who are hell bent on despising and treating women as thrash. The jienge male dominated society is sick and women as objects or goods. Poor Nyanjienges are just properties

                      Nyanjienges are married or sold off at early age. The men set the price and the poor jienge woman is transformed into a " production tool". She’s to beget little jienges almost every year and all male in laws dare sleep with her. OMG. This explains the large numbers of jienges with confused blood relationships. Jienge men have no mums, but cows. We can’t help. Now shut up

                  ..dragged out of my house by jienge boye to train on me..? This supports my earlier thesis that jienges are homosexuals and perverts. Sexually active youth in luaks on their own indeed drives wild fantasies of uncontrolled sex orgies. Do you know now why nyors are the most notorious rapists? They learnt this sodomy in their luaks.

            Well stated. Troika has realized that without Equatoria in the centre, jienges and nyagats can’t do anything other than fighting and creating anarchy. Equatoria is development and progress, jiengelands are empty grazing lands for cows and really don’t need development. Afterall all jienges have fled away to Equatoria, Uganda and Kenya as refugees or squatters.

          Please don’t forget Wani Igga was also there in the presidency since 2005 and he is Equatoria. It was equatoria who invited M7 thinking to protect them and Dinka invited M23,GEM, Egypt, SPLA-N and Torobora to fight Nuer but you Equatoria was just watching and singing(Maal de kueyis Maiyi)in Juba. Why complaining now. It is clear that there will be no peace if Kiirimnal still a president

            This short-legged Bari lapdog has no place in our community. He is useless and best as a palace clown. We have written him off. Jienges can put him into a "dog bag" like some puddle dog and carry him everywhere. He’s one of those sellouts that gleefully smiled as his sisters were gangraped by uncircumcised jienge savages. Take him for free. We don’t need him.

    What has been said by the international observers is true, because Khartoum has no capacity to brokered a good peace to the people of South Sudan since it has hand in this senseless war.Khartoum was the one harbouring rebel elements with weapons/food to fight the gov’t since 2013 up to date it has never stop its support to the rebels.So such a person can’t mediated peace to the two warring parties
