UPDATED: S. Sudan’s rivals to meet in Kampala on Thursday


October 4, 2019 (KAMPALA) – South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir and the armed opposition leader Riek Machar will meet in the Kampala, Uganda on Thursday, an opposition official said Tuesday.

"The Kampala meeting between President Kiir and Dr. Riek Machar has been postponed until Thursday, September 7," Puok Both Baluang, the armed opposition movement’s deputy director for public relations told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday.

The meeting between the two rival leaders, he said, will mainly focus on the outstanding issues and the period of execution of the pre-transitional period".

This would be the third face-to-face meeting between both rival leaders since the revitalized peace agreement was signed in September 2018 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

South Sudan descended into war in December 2013 when President Salva Kiir accused his former deputy-turned rebel leader Machar of plotting a coup, allegations he dismissed.

In September last year, South Sudan’s arch-foes signed a revitalized peace agreement to end the country’s civil war that killed tens of thousands of people and displaced millions.

According to the 2018 peace deal, a unity government was supposed to be formed in May, but due to unresolved issues, the parties agreed to a six-month extension, settling on November 12.

The International Crisis Group (ICG) warned Monday that war-torn South Sudan could slide back into war, if a coalition government is formed on November 12 without compromises on key issues.

    Riek Machar Teny was told by his I0 groups to gets Dinkas general who are in Kiir Mayardit government and he is getting exactly some generals who were not happy about Kiir Mayardit leadership but this is bad tactic that should be avoided completely because our people have been suffering under them.

      Meeting is ok, let hope Riek will change his mind before it’s too late. There are no Dinka generals on Riek side, zero. November 12, 2019, we will form government of national unity. It’s one way and everyone must follow it.

Creatures like Mr. Riek Machar shouldn’t be born to human beings>>>

          And of course there are some of his lowly informed Nuers in his own community who don’t know their man is a ’foreign’ agent who doesn’t give a damn about ’the Nuers, the South Sudan and the South Sudanese people’ but his own self and his secret societies that he had taken a solemn oath long time ago. And these ’secret societies’ are using their ’victim (Mr. Riek Machar)’ as their only ’tool’>>>

          Dr. Riek worked hard for his PhD he is therefore intelligent and hardworking. You haven’t even a Bachelors degree, that means you are a fool and lazy sloth. Just shut up or buy one from Kampala. All jienges buy degrees anyway. When idiots try to be intelligent.

        Riek must be stupid to even allow jienge bush generals to join him. Let him keep away from this Kampala market thrash. What can M7 and Burhan achieve what the Pope couldn’t achieve? Nothing. May be these evil men want to secretly poison Riek. I’d be very careful and not travel to Uganda.

                Stupid primitive abeed. You should really be grateful to the arabs(your masters) for helping you take longechuk from the burun. You’re a slave race. Truth hurts.

                even the fat gapped toothed reik wont be able to regute the 1956 borders showing akobo and longechuk belong to them. Good luck fighting without your arab masters. Nuer slave.

                  Why don`t we support peace instead of talking nonsense, so for my analysis those who usually responding like that are holding ministerial positions governorship in that fake government only they were using unidentified name.

    It is written in the one of the proverb that, every dog has it day, let M7 try his plan of assassination for the 4th time and I belief he will not achieve like what he did to our hero Dr John Garang de Mabior in 2005.
