S. Sudan’s Kiir, Museveni discuss border relations


January 15, 2012 (JUBA/KAMPALA) – South Sudan President, Salva Kiir and his Ugandan counterpart, Yoweri Museveni met on Monday to discuss border relations between the two neighbouring countries.

The meeting, according to a statement, also assessed the relationship between citizens from both countries living along border areas, where tensions often arouse over land-related disputes.

Also high on the agenda, the statement noted, was a discussion on the bilateral relations between two countries.

“It [the meeting] also looked at ways of how Uganda and South Sudan can further enhance the strong bilateral relations between them,” partly reads the statement from state house in Uganda

The meeting comes less than a month after a similar one took place between the two leaders in Juba, the South Sudan capital last year.

South Sudan has in recent years, emerged as the largest importer of Ugandan goods, with over 150,000 Ugandan traders, according to the trade and industry ministry, operating across the border.

Recent statistics from Bank of Uganda, however, indicate Uganda’s trade with South Sudan, in the last two months, declined by 80%.

The decline, the bank says, is due to scarcity of dollars in South Sudan, with analysts attributing it to the young nation’s shut down of its oil production early last year.

Land locked South Sudan still relies heavily on its neighbors to provide goods such as construction materials and services such as skilled and unskilled labor, with approximately 1,500 Ugandans reportedly working in South Sudan’s construction industry.

In recent years, however, Ugandan traders have complained about constant harassment, intimidation and corruption at the border with South Sudan, an allegation officials have often denied.

    We all know there is a disputed area in the border between Uganda and S Sudan and that meeting between Salva Kiir and Museveni discussed that issue behind the closed doors!
    Also, there is a disputed area in the border between Kenya and S Sudan which is known as "Ilemi triangle", Kenya took it by force and now opened it for oil companies to explore it!

      It’s just a matter of time till all these discordance come to surface and public know them!
      It’s obvious that the south can’t open another window of fighting with Uganda & Kenya for now while its door of discordance with Sudan still opened up to its largest limit!
      S Sudan relies completely on Uganda & Kenya for now and can’t survive without them!

        As soon as the south resolves its issues with greedy Arab/Jalaba in the north who want to rip off the south during the daylight then the south will pay its attention to those looters in Kenya & Uganda who are another greedy Africans thieves that want to rob and loot south land and oil by claiming fake ownership to S Sudan land!

            you are right,I think this person by name Jalaby is not far from S. Sudan,he might be a s.Sudanese who wants to sabotage S.Sudan relation with it neighbors or a Sudanese intruding in S.Sudan. For him he likes commenting in controversial discussions or anything that is likely to bring tension between S.Sudan and its neighbors but no matter what, we must building our relationship with friends

    Look at the two pictures above, it’s for the same person who called Yoweri Museveni,
    the first image was taken in January 1986 when he was sworn as President of Uganda, the second picture is current and very recent picture for him

        He is a very good example for a corrupted African president who usually fakes the election by winning 99.99%!
        This man has become so rotted and will never step down unless died and bury in graveyard!
        I strongly warn Mr. Kiir not to follow this man step and should step down and open the door for well educated and intellectual person and you all know who is that person!

          Fugitive Bashir is a butcher and a tyrant ever known by those concerned. In recent survey conducted in one of the African countries, Bashir has been rated as the best President, who came to power through coup, in election rigging and frauds. He also excels in lying to all, including NCP.

        for your information, this border discussion is beneficial to all whether Ugandans or South Sudanese, stop posting your propaganda, no one is interested in it.

          Well done both Presidents. The two sisterly nations can’t afford to get locked in unnecessary border disputes if an opportunity to resolve them amicably is there. Iron out any border differences and whatever souring releations between South Sudanese and Ugandans across both sides of these countries.

          If Museveni is really a South Sudanese friend, then he have to let us brow his anti-aircraft or otherwise he have to explain clearly why he always kill African Leaders? Because we in need of this shit, our thieves can’t afford to buy it.
