South Sudan govt awaiting mediation’s new peace proposals


July 11, 2018 (JUBA) - The Sudanese mediators are still reviewing the draft agreement on the South Sudan peace revitalization forum, said the information minister Michael Makuei Lueth on Wednesday.

South Sudan’s information minister Michael Makuei Lueth speaks to reporters in Bor, December 25, 2016 (ST)

Following a meeting held in Entebbe on Saturday, it was announced that the South Sudanese parties would sign in Khartoum an agreement on the outstanding issues in the power-sharing and governance and conclude the revitalization forum on Wednesdays 11 July.

However, the information minister who is also the spokesperson of the government negotiating team in Khartoum said the draft agreement was not ready and the Sudanese mediators are finalizing the text.

“Unfortunately at this moment the government of Sudan is still working on the document They are not yet ready. So, we are expected to continue for the next few days,” said Lueth who was speaking in Khartoum to the South Sudan TV.

The Sudanese mediators following a meeting in Entebbe including Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, Sudan’s President Omer al-Bashir, South Sudan President Salva Kiir and SPLM-IO Riek Machar announced that an agreement was reached on the governance chapter.

However, the opposition groups including the SPLM-IO, South Sudan Opposition Alliance and the Other Political Parties voiced their rejection for what is called Entebbe proposal which brought important modifications to the initial document.

The most import amendment was the establishment of the fourth position of a vice-president instead of three. In return, President Kiir accepted to reinstitute Machar in his previous position as first vice president.

The proposal which dealt only with the power-sharing issues and ignored other outstanding issues like the number of states in South Sudan provides that the SPLM-IO will be given 100 seats in the parliament and the other opposition groups 50 MPs. All will join the current 400 MPs. The same for the government the SPLM-IO will get 10 portfolios, the other opposition factions 5 ministerial posts while the government keeps its 30 ministers.

Minister Lueth said his delegation will respond to the document that would be given by the Sudanese mediators once they receive it before to final signing ceremony which will be attended by the IGAD leaders.

“So let’s be patient for this important day and I’m sure we will sign it in the coming few days,” he concluded.

        Jienges have turned SS into a shithole country and the best you and I can do is think along Equatoria lines. How much efforts, time and energies are needed to rehabilitate this failed jienge republic? It’s easier, if we just let these tailless monkeys alone and concentrate on developing ourselves. Equatoria first.

          These jienges are truly worthless.In spite of all the billions they’ve stolen from the state,they never developed their luaks.Where are the good roads,schools or hospitals with that big money?Its evidently clear that they’re totally visionless and lazy.Anybody who hangs around with them becomes also dumb,greedy and useless just like they are.Equatoria will exit SS no doubt.

        You are dancing around your own peace proposal. The peace agreement which about to be signed has nothing to with your keyboard peace. Just take the idea you want South Sudan army to be dismantled so that cowards who been hiding for years will take over South Sudan. Who will allow something like that to happen on the face of earth?

          Remember that very well after signing the peace with Sudan, CAP. Recruitment of the army in South Sudan was given equally to 10 states of South Sudan. Equatorians refused to join SPLA. Why? They were afraid to be sent to fight for Abyei. Records are there and they can not be denied. Our army is a volunteer army, every citizen can volunteer and join it.

          You are fighting for Abyei?!! Cowards and bastards!!! If you were, the Nine Ngok Dinka Chiefdoms lane would’ve not been left behind. 2 wars in 2008 and 2011, Kiir Mayardit refused to chased the Northern Army out of the years, and just to turn his back and killed poor Nuer Citizens in Juba and then divided them to kill each other every day!!!
          SS Army must be dismantled and rebuilt! I am talking...

          The proposals was drafted in Juba but given to M7 to look like M7 did it by himself. Even Salva Kiir ran back again to Uganda after Al-Bashir and M7 meeting on the peace and asked M7 that they want petroleum and Finances positions when the new government is form

        M7’s proposals was discarded two days ago. The talk in Khartoum are focussing on the new unveiled proposals from Khartoum and the talk would go on for another week or 11 days in Sudan. Makuei Lieth is not telling you Dinka the truth.
        M7’s proposals were rejected both regionally and internationally

          Are you still crying to get help from regional and international community? That’s what I call cowardly people. Peace in South Sudan is for peace of South Sudan. Outsiders can help South Sudanese to have peace, but they are not the one to make decision for us.

      Makuei is just a tribal leader and impostor. Faked law degree he was responsible for amassing thousands of U$ dollars between 2007-2010 as minister of legal and constitutional affairs when he sent 24 worthless jienge paralegals for further studies to S Africa. Let him first go to Bor to develop his luak than squatting in Juba.

            Lino. No any body in South Sudan who has got such powers to dumped President kiir in garbage drum. Kiir was the one who is almost to get ride of Dr. John in 2004. Garang failed to answered all the points outlined by Kiir against him. Kiir is an hero who can be respected and be given ample time to rule SS as much as he wants and no Nyagat could agitate him in his term of office.

        The rubber stamp jienge parliament has endorsed a further 3 yrs for the kiirminal as president. Good for nothing parliamentarians who sleep more than they can think are glad that at least they can get free foods, monies and emoluments for a people who have already fled the country. How disgusting and pathetic these idolatrous scumbags without moral sense.
