SSPM leader welcomes 100-day postponement of S. Sudan unity government


November 7, 2019 (JUBA) - The South Sudan Patriotic Movement (SSPM) leader Costello Garang Ring Lual welcomed the outcome of the tripartite summit in Uganda saying it aid to preserve the national consensus over the peace agreement.

In a meeting held in Entebbe, President Sava Kiir and his main peace partner Riek Machar agreed to extend the pre-transitional period for hundred days to allow the implementation of the security arrangements and reach an agreement over the state number and boundaries.

The meeting was hosted by President Museveni and attended by the other guarantor of the revitalized peace agreement Abdel Fattah al-Burhan the head of Sudan’s Sovereign Council.

in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune on Thursday, the SSPM leader voiced his support for the postponement of the transitional national unity government saying it was a "wise decision" because the formation of the cabinet on 12 November could have led to the failure of the SPLM-Io to join it.

" I believe that President Salva Kiir’s acceptance of these recent changes cannot be considered as a weakness because the main objective is to reach a national consensus to break the impasse in the implementation of the Agreement and to end the current state of non-war and non-peace," he further stressed.

Costello further called on the international community and the UN Security Council to support the extension and the full implementation of the revitalized peace deal pointing that main problem facing this implementation is not the political will but the lack of funding.

"Anyone who wants to help the people of South Sudan reach a speedy peace — as the members of the Security Council in Juba said during their recent visit — should now urgently assist to meet all the needs of implementing the agreement", he said.

"But whoever wants to punish the government in Juba, this is neither the time nor the place after the postponement of the formation of the transitional for the third time," he further emphasized.

      Midit Mitot,
      Be reserved with your compliments! This SSPM was quiet and never criticised the kiirminal when he wanted to form the RTGoNU until today. They are part of SSOA that directly supported the formation of RTGoNU and now the change of heart?? This is cheap jienge opportunism, swaying left—right—left like a pissing bull on the run.

        You very right brother, but JCE government has already gone, now the real government is smelling at the corridor. We will not bother with those jobs seekers call SSOA anymore.

      Midit Mitot,

      You are talking like a small boy. Who will give you power if you lost the war miserably? Yes, delaying the formation of national unity is so bad to me, but Kiir is still sitting on power alone and after 100 days, Riek will be among 4 others as a vice president with Kiir on top of them. 5 people as vice presidents, sweet. Keep dancing, you have done that after May 2019.

        South South,

        You are now talking on the vacuum, you never know the current politics that South Sudanese are in now. You have to note my words, last week I have told you that your fake government will not be form without IO otherwise it will be a live bullet, how is it now?

        note this again, Salva Kiir will sit on the chair for only few months as SS President, believe @yaaah nincompoop.

          Midit Mitot,

          You need to visit Pagak first and meet me there to over next government formation. Kiir will rule until he retire at his own will. You don’t have live bullets, if you have them why did run away from Pagak, Bentu, Malakal, Bor and Nuer land? Riek will be our vice president with other 4 people, sweet. Kiir on top of him, how about that?

              Midit Mitot,

              Some of your uncles are still hiding in PoCs in Juba, Malakal, Bentu, Bor. tell them to come out if you have power to do that. Roaming in Khartoum or Addis means you are weak militarily. Talking about fucking, ask your uncles who are hiding right now in swampy areas of Upper Nile, shut up losers.

                South South,

                Talk in common senses, when your bulldog call Malong Awan plan to kill Nuer civilian in Juba and endorsed by Kiir, almighty Nuer were sleeping and don’t dream that their Dinka brothers could do such a genocide to them.

                But now man, you will regret soon no need for those vulnerable old men in POCs, IO manpower is enough than even yours, IG soldiers are weak killed by red cap alcohol

    SSPM Leader Costello Garang should not encourage misinformation about peace implementation in South Sudan. He claims the peace agreement is lagging due to lack resources and not political will. My question to him is where does the oil money go since Riek said they agreed part of that money was to go for peace implementation ?
