S. Sudan opposition leader in Kampala to meet President Kiir


November 6, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - The South Sudanese armed opposition faction (SPLM/A-IO) chairman, Riek Machar has arrived in the Ugandan capital, Kampala for the third face-to-face meeting with President Salva Kiir, a senior party official confirmed on Thursday.

Machar speaks on a mobile phone after an interview with Reuters in Kenya’s capital Nairobi July 8, 2015

Puok Both Baluang, the SPLM/A-IO director for public relations, told Sudan Tribune that Machar was accompanied by the chairperson of Sudan’s Sovereign Council, General Abdel Fattah Al Burhan.

“The meeting aims at discussing the critical outstanding issues of the R-ARCSS and chat a way forward as the extended pre-transitional period draws to a close without much having been achieved,” he said.

Baluang said guarantors of the Revitalized Agreement on Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS) will also attend the meeting.

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

In September last year, the country’s rival factions signed a revitalized peace deal to end the 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.

At least 382,900 people died as a result of the conflict in the world’s youngest nation, a report published by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine last year revealed.

    I don`t think if Dr Machar will accept the short cut because the security arrangement and the number and bounders of states are the pending issues that will lead our country back to war if not handling properly.

        Riek should NEVER accept getting bullied by M7 or otherwise. IGAD that is directly responsible for incacerating Riek till today can’t come around and force him to agree on the formation of RTGONU. NO. They lift this house arrest first, force this jienge kiirminal to comply with R-ACSS 2018 or people fight. This jienge kaffir and kiirminal can’t fool the rest all the time.

Many South Sudanese including the empty headed fool and his fake PhD rival have let South Sudan and South Sudanese be bullied by other countries. The level of bile and anger they have put others through is quite overwhelming>>>

Another such cheap experiment was done in Zimbabwe between Robert Mugabe and Morgan Msangarai by the same crooks. And the experiment later failed to work.

A government of national unity will come and cause the same infighting again that brought us to where we are today. What do these so-called mediators and negotiators don’t see here?
