October 10, 2017 (JUBA) - A South Sudanese group on Tuesday welcomed the proposed the revitalization forum, saying it has already been consulted by the delegation of the regional bloc (IGAD) and the team that is monitoring and evaluating the 2015 peace agreement.

A delegation of DOT BAAI-SSPA/SSPM headed by the President of the Consultative Council of SSPA/SSPM, Costello Garang Ring Lual, met with an IGAD delegation in Khartoum to discuss to revitalize the Addis Peace Agreement (ARCSS) on the 9th of October.

Garang was accompanied by General Hussein Abdelbagi Akol, according to a statement extended to Sudan Tribune, Tuesday.

The regional delegation was led by the IGAD’s Special Envoy for South Sudan, Ambassador Ismail Wais. Also, the IGAD team included Major Gen. Molla Hailemariam, Chairman of the Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring Mechanism (CTSAMM).

The consultative meeting, the group said, sought to listen to the views of the different opposition groups on the revitalization of the 2015 peace agreement to derive mechanisms on how the war can be resolved.

“The leadership of the Movement met the team of IGAD which came to Khartoum and submitted a written position to them. The movement accepted and welcomed the revitalization process and affirmed its commitment to participating in the process the only way the conflict in the country could be resolved,” the statement added.

In June, a summit of IGAD heads of state and government decided to convene a meeting of the signatories of the South Sudan peace agreement to discuss ways to revitalize the peace implementation.

During the June summit, it was agreed that all groups be included in the discussion aimed at restoring a permanent ceasefire.

Last week, IGAD unveiled the timetable for the revitalization forum to start consultations with South Sudanese leaders and the nation’s citizens. The process, it said, begins on 13 October and ends on 17.

South Sudan government earlier warned that the revitalization forum by the regional bloc, which mediated the 2015 peace accord, should not be another platform for negotiations of the peace agreement between the two factions to the conflict.

IGAD is an eight-member economic bloc that brings together Ethiopia, Djibouti, Somalia, Sudan, Eritrea, South Sudan, Kenya and Uganda.

Over a million people have fled South Sudan since conflict erupted in December 2013 when President Salva Kiir sacked Machar from the vice-presidency. Tens of thousands of people have been killed and nearly two million displaced in South Sudan’s worst ever violence since it seceded from Sudan in 2011

      South Sudan Patriotic Army and is led by Gen Hussein Abdelbaqi Ayii. It’s based in N. Bahrelghazal predominantly led by Jienge Malualgernyang. They have no military history and have not captured even a luak but were anticipating that fugitive Malong join them. It’s when the Kiirminal snapped them and now are joining the revitalization process. Dr. Costello Garang is their rep. in Germany

    Now Kiir and his sycophants SHOULD stop stonewalling all efforts aimed at restoring peace and stability in South Sudan. These efforts includes but not limited to negotiations, conciliation, compromise, etc, etc. This empty rhetoric of we liberated you, we are in all the towns and cities, you are parked like a vehicle without tyres contrapuntal...

      We liberated South Sudan. What say you an old man? Kiir will be on the top of our country as a president as long as he is healthy to lead. Kiir has people who are standing with him. Kiir fought for this country and he gave up the best part of his life to liberate this country. We are the real men, you are not, but coward. Enjoy your life in USA.

Some of you went astray as Lost Boys/Girls and ended up in Kakuma. So what has your Liberation brought to you jienges, other than stealing, looting and begging for food, losers?

          We liberated South Sudan. I will say that at daytime, nighttime, evening time and morning time. You are from this tribe which to run to Uganda when there is war in Sudan, then run back to South Sudan when there is war in Uganda for generations. You must come to Juba and talk to me if you want peace.

Just worthless jienge junk: no clear objectives, no clear actionable plans, no fixed timesframes/timelines, no clear stakeholder list, no legal framework, no strategy on monitoring and evaluation, no contingency or exit plans, no guarantors etc...just junk!

              This is a very well written document, right? Unless you are a big coward, you can disagree with me about this document, but all in all, it confirmed what I have been saying everyday " We liberated this country, period. Eastern takes it as it’s or leave it and move to Uganda, or USA or with monkeys, you have all these choices.
