February 15, 2020 (JUBA) - The South Sudan Opposition Movements Alliance (SSOMA) Friday has officially taken part in a cessation of hostility deal brokered by the Roman Catholic Sant’ Egidio peace group last January.

"The (SSOMA) is informing its entire membership. supporters, South Sudanese at large and the International Community that it has together with the Government (...) signed Rome Resolution on Monitoring and Verification of the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement COHA (of) December 2017 under the auspices of the Community of Sant’Egidio," said the alliance on Friday.

According to this ceasefire implementation agreement, SSOMA will participate in the Monitoring and Verification mechanism paving the way for further negotiations on the root causes of conflict in South Sudan.

"Having signed this resolution does not mean SSOMA has endorsed the Revitalized ARCSS or accept it," further stressed alliance of the holdout groups.

The parties agreed to resume talks next March but no date has been determined.

In March 2019, the IGAD Special Envoy to South Sudan refused to acknowledge any new group formed after the signing of the peace agreement, fearing that would lead to review the power-sharing and security arrangements.

    Thomas Cirillo and former SPLM Secretary General Pagan A mum Okiech are making wrong claimed because they were all parts of government in South Sudan.

Him and Riek Machar were competing to grabbing SPLM Party Chairmanship meanwhile, Thomas Cirillo was busy looting million dollars for army. We know all these things and

      None of what you said is true. It was Kiir’s agenda to kill Nuer and other non Dinka tribes thinking he will siege the nation through Dictatorship. He thought South Sudanese will tack their tails between the legs and circumS to his authority. It was clear then and it’s still clear now and it till go to the books that way.
