President Kiir, the Presidential Press Unit (PPU) reported on Thursday, was seen off at the airport by First Vice President Gen. Taban Deng Gai.

While in Addis Ababa, the South Sudan leader will join other regional leaders attending the 13th ordinary IGAD summit.

The need by the regional leaders to push South Sudanese leaders to fully implement the country’s revitalized peace agreement is likely to dominate the IGAD summit.

The summit, according to the armed opposition faction (SPLM-IO), is also expected to determine the status their leader, Riek Machar, under house arrest since 2016.

On November 7, President Kiir and the country’s main opposition leader Machar agreed to delay key benchmarks in the revitalized peace agreement by 100 days.

The delay in forming a national unity government on November 12 came after Machar’s group raised concerns that the country’s security arrangements are still incomplete.

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

                    You better put some respect on Abdalla Hamdok’s name. He is the Lion of Africa. He has come to save Sudan. We will build a pyramid for him that will be bigger than Taharqa’s. Yes, we will normalize relations with the evil Israeli juus so they can stop supporting the traitor Abdul Wahid.

                      I want you to notice how all the countries that supported south sudan’s independence are the same ones either causing chaos or are turning their backs on South Sudan. They had money to give you billions in guns but not help when you need it. M7 will never leave South Sudan. He is the king maker if not king of South Sudan now. US will take all ur minerals and China will put u in debt.

      While the 13th Ordinary IGAD summit in Addis Abeba has endorsed the release of Riek, this short-legged Ugandan Bantu M7 has rejected and says, Riek will bring SS again to war, as if SS were not in war now. Make your own judgment.

        Bro, I told you M7ni have problem with peace. The man live in people’s blood that he has become more that a parasitic leach. The man thrives by corruption. He robbed Congo in the name of Kony, used Rwanda and killed the Acholi people then claimed that it was Joseph Kony who did that. Very absurd man. I would believe if someone say he worship the Devil.

    Have piece of advice, war you are preaching is meaningless, let sticks to peace instead of war. This time we need lasting peace. If anyone try war, either Government or Rebel side. God will punish him or her.
