October 5, 2019 (JUBA) - South Sudan could slide back into war if a coalition government is formed on November 12 without reaching compromise on outstanding issues, a think tank warned Monday.

The International Crisis Group (ICG), in a briefing entitled, “Déjà Vu: Preventing Another Collapse in South Sudan”, said regional heads of states, the African Union (AU) and western diplomats should urge President Salva Kiir not to form a new government minus consensus.

“They should step in to help mediate a way forward, given political paralysis among South Sudan’s neighbours, initially envisioned as the deal’s key guarantors,” argued the group.

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

According to the 2018 peace deal, a unity government was supposed to be formed in May, but due to unresolved issues, the parties agreed to a six-month extension, settling on November 12.

With barely a week to the November 12 deadline, Kiir is threatening to leave the main opposition leader, who is demanding delay to the new transitional government, out of a new cabinet.

“Even if the two leaders agree to share power, disputes over security arrangements and state boundaries would poison the new administration, potentially leading to its collapse,” said ICG.

The group urged regional leaders, the AU and western diplomats to push the parties to agree on state boundaries, a credible security plan for the capital, Juba and on a new timeline for military reform.

“While mounting frustration with Kiir and Machar is justified, external actors should not press the two men to share power absent such agreements,” stressed the group.

The United States has expressed frustration with both Kiir and Machar, threatening sanctions if they fail to form a government on time.

High-level political mediation, ICG argued, will be required to resolve the outstanding issues standing in the way of forming a viable and functional government while reducing risks to the country’s population.

“Simply pressing the parties to form a unity government is a strategy that could backfire if that government’s foundation is so shaky that it cannot stand,” it stressed.

At least 382,900 people died as a result of the conflict in the world’s youngest nation, a report published by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine last year revealed.

            My relatives have nowhere to flee cuz Juba is theirs. Drifters, vagrants, homeless nomads, wandering petty traders, wayward thugs and criminals will flee. People like you who are non Equatorians with no fucking business will flee like terrified chicken. Be prepared. I know you have nowhere to go, that’s frightening even monkeys have trees they call homes.

              ...Masilaha(???,Unity).That last word means ’with guns’ or ’interest’.I would agree if he had said ’Wehda’.He Museveni was mocking the crowds to go to hell for wasting time/an afternoon talking about those three words.Museveni is a known creepy gangster with dark history when it comes to unclear assassinations of other leaders.Riak must be careful!

                  Let Equatorians get this jienge shit once and for all. They either drive all Equatorians out of Equatoria, or expect that Equatorians will smoke them out sooner or later. Once the Juba-Nimule road is closed, its just starving these rats to death. Juba-Yei road is already out of bounds. Any wandering MTN must be wiped out on sight. They want war, we go for it. NO mid-solutions. Case closed.

        You need to calm down and talk about peace only. War didn’t help your uncles in 2013 or 2016. Do you still remember what happened in those two years? Not good. Bashir is not in Khartoum anymore to allow people to roam on the streets of Khartoum. Kiir has all rights to form government on November 12th with Riek or without Riek.

        Let’s talk about peace only. Since 2013, some people are living in bushes and swampy areas. If Riek couldn’t hold one single town in South Sudan by now including his hometown, then let’s talk about peace. No single one in South Sudan can overthrow Kiir. Kiir will rule unlit he reaches retirement age which is something we have to determine.

If there is third round of war, you need to remember what happened in first round and second round.
