    IGAD is getting confused by its own intricacies in the HLRF; the body languages of Kiir and Machars say more than what the document they appended their signatures on....! Trioka just tried to warn of the perilous future because of the grand deception aka the KPA.

    Both Museveni and Al Bashir need personal securities offered by life presidency. Bashir has finally gotten it and Kiir is proped as the life "president" of South Sudan - if it ever takes off, at the tail end of the 3 years extended to Kiir, there will be another bloodbath if the current shaky arrangement is stuck to. This is what Troika is saying.....!
