S. Sudan’s Kiir briefs Museveni on peace deal implementation

Kiir was in Uganda on a two-day visit on the invitation of Museveni.

The minister for the presidency, Mayiik Ayii Deng and director general of external security, Thomas Duoth accompanied Kiir.

Deng said Kiir and Museveni held bilateral talks, with the former praising the Ugandan leader’s effort to restore stability in neighbouring Sudan.

The two leaders, he further said, also discussed construction of the Yei-Kaya highway. Yei-Kaya Road is a major trade route, connecting South Sudan, Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The construction project is to be funded by the Ugandan government.

The meeting comes barely a week after the regional bloc (IGAD) convened a meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on August 21 to review progress made in the implementation of the Revitalized Agreement on Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (ARCSS).

Museveni played a key role in the signing of the September 2018 peace accord in Addis Ababa, which partially ended South Sudan’s civil war.

The Ugandan leader has, in the past, urged the warring factions in the South Sudan to embrace dialogue for lasting peace to be achieved.

South Sudan descended into violence in December 2013 when President Kiir accused his former deputy, Riek Machar of plotting to overthrow his rule, accusations the latter dismissed.

The war has killed tens of thousands and displaced millions of others, prompting the United Nations to rank the country as Africa’s biggest refugee crisis.

    Yei-Kaya road construction has no connection with the real mission, hiding agenda and diverting the real talk about South Sudan peace accord looming. But Kiir must take care about M7 advice’s.

      Unless both M7 and the Kiirminal deploy soldiers along the entire route and dislodge all our armed boys (which is impossible) NO highway will be constructed. Jienges who hope goods and services will flow to their end easily better kiss 💋 our shitholes. Only on our terms. Period.

    What a plan of bypassing U.N. sanctions under the pretext of road construction from Kaya to Yei! Moreover I hear it is to be financed by poor Uganda! Uganda itself needs finance to construct its own roads. Then what is special for Uganda to spend their taxpayers money on a project in insecurity infested country? Something fishy.

      I agreed with you, Ugandan can not do any construction to Yei—Kaya road while 80% are now loitering here in South Sudan without food, that,s different case.

                      What country have jienges taken? Sounds of hollowness and utter desperation. Abyei is undisputed Sudanese territory says TMC Dep. leader Gen Hemeti. Instead of blowing hot air, mobilize your cowardly jienges to liberate Abyei.
