Machar (C) speaks to the SSBC after his meeting with the NPTC members in Khartoum on 23 October 2018
January 21, 2020 (JUBA) - The SPLM-IO officially endorsed the formation of the transitional government by the end of the 100-day extension and called on the IGAD to assess what has been implemented during the elapsed period.

The endorsement was made in a meeting held in Juba on 20 January by the SPLM-IO leadership council chaired by the Movement’s Riek Machar.

“The meeting endorsed the SPLM/SPLA (IO) position to enable the formation of the Revitalized Government of National Unity (R-TGONU) at the end of the extension of the 100 days presented to Special Envoys and President Salva Kiir Mayardit on 15th January 2020,” says the statement.

The Movement’s Deputy Chairman for Information Manawa Peter Gathuoth said in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune that the meeting reviewed and evaluated the tasks done during the 69 days of the 100 days extension.

Further called on the IGAD to evaluate the past period as the parties because they need to agree on the way forward in the implementation of the Agreement.

“The SPLM/SPLA (IO) calls upon IGAD to urgently initiate the process of the evaluation of the elapsed period of the 100 days’ extension,” he added.

The SPLM-IO and the SSOA called to settle the issue of the number of states before the launch of the transitional pointing to that the number of states will be used to determine the number of the lawmakers of the Council of States.

    Iam for forming the government of national unity on February 22nd, period, with 32 states standing tall. If there are people who do not like that, we can postpone the formation of government of national unity for 200 years so that we can have enough time to talk.

      South South,

      Come February 22nd 2020,if the government of national unity is not formed with the legitimate 10 states, this Riak and other Opposition forces should start preparing strategies to capture drunkard Kiir and his people alive and line them up for crucifixion.Look,we all remember that prophet from Nigeria who talked of ’somebody will be captured alive’ and dealt with!He was not bluffing!

            ..rapists,thieves and murderers!How can a sound minded person expect peace from people who don’t want to accept reforms that will lead to the common good of all people?Well,only Dinka thieves will see these changes as a major blockade to their inherent theft and chaos,and will never allow order,rule of law let alone equal distribution of fortunes to the starving majority,disgusting!

              Speaking of basketball,..the Kenyan police authority had arrested 10 highly suspected Dinka criminals after the basketball game.I just wonder if not some of those players are criminals themselves.Do you now understand the level of high alert the whole world has,whenever nations see a collection of Dinka people squatting in their backyards?..Serious stuff!

                  Sniffing cow dung in Abyei is one thing,playing real basketball game is another!If you have a bunch of Dinka criminals chasing a ball in the neighborhood,everybody will be talking and worried about them.They are easily recognizable though,..tall,charcoal dark and ugly,grrrh.Those few might be the lucky ones,running around without butchered Dinka Vs(scarifications) in their faces!

    President Salva Kiir Mayardit you should talk to yourself about your mistakes in 2016 when giving real enemies to get away while, the Son of famous William Deng Nhial was murdered at the check point.

    The most problems from president Salve Kiir Mayardit is the way he kept silence and you can’t lead the young nation and people if you keep quiet all the time. Just asking them question because they always making rhetorical complained. We know very well that, 10 States were created using executive power by Omar al Bashir. Tell them if 10 States are lawful thus, what makes 32 States unlawful?.

      Albashir was created those 10 States in nationalism, leadership quality and professionalism ways. However’ in another hands, Salva Kiir is doing it in tribalism directions. 14 out 32 states are Dinka states. He (Salva Kiir) curved every single lands from others tribes across the country and given to you Dinka. Is that what you Dinka call leadership?

The Nuers people are going to have no good future in centuries to come because
