December 24, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudanese President Salva Kiir Monday received a delegation of the Former Political Detainees (FDs) led by Rebecca Nyanddeng Garang who has been in Juba since Saturday 22 December.

The meeting which coincided with Christmas celebration in Juba showed the parties commitment to implement the peace pact and restore stability after five years of civil war in the country.

Speaking after the meeting Rebecca reiterated the FDs’ keenness to implement the revitalized peace agreement and called for popular support to the ongoing process.

For his part, South Sudanese Presidential Adviser Tut Gatluak said the presence of the widow of Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) John Garang in Juba demonstrates her commitment to the peace process.

Rebecca was flanked by a Fds’ delegation included Kosti Manibe, Majak De’Agot, Mach Paul and Gier Chuang.

With the arrival of this delegation, all FDs figures met with President Kiir, except the group’s leader Pagan Amum who expressed reservations over the peace agreement.

In a separate meeting on Monday, President Kiir received for the second time since her arrival in Juba, Angelina Teny, head of the SPLM-IO’s security committee.

Following the meeting, she told reporters that she delivered a letter to President Kiir from the SPLM-IO leader on the implementation of the peace agreement.

Angelina is in Juba with a high-level military delegation to discuss the security arrangements which are behind schedule.

    Pakuai, the First Vice President of the Republic of the Sudan and first Chairman of the SPLM/A, Colonel Dr John Garang de Mabior, was not killed by the ’cloned Arabs’. He was killed by the Dinka of Bahr El Ghazal in collaboration with their Ugandan friends. After Garang’s death, his assassins embarked on the looting spree in South Sudan.

      Any meaningful peace deal in SS can ONLY come once FEDERALISM is system of governance. Any political arrangement without FEDERALISM is just jienge trash and nyagat bullshit. Equatorians should just keep off.

      You are a liar. The Helicopter crashed on the mountain new site has nothing to do with the people of Bhar El Ghazal instead, pointing your poor accusation on weather caused. That a Helicopter itself was made in Russia nation and black box was taken there but they haven’t rule out as a human caused but they believe it is weather issued. Be advice not to say thing like that okay.

        I think you put it correctly. Those Latuke hills are very high and Garang last words to pilot was we can go back if you don’t see anything. I didn’t see crush site myself but from
        those who went there, Gunship hit the hill as result of poor weather. No one person in Bhar al Gazal had any reason to harm Garang in middle of CPA celebration, not Salva Kiir not even Maseveni as alleged.
