South Sudan rebel leader Riek Machar (L) and President Salva Kiir in Juba on September 8, 2019 (PPU)
September 13, 2019 (JUBA) -The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) envoy in South Sudan welcomed the outcome of Kiir-Machar meeting on the implementation of the revitalized peace agreement, describing it as a "positive step in the right direction"

The IGAD "is pleased with the positive progress (achieved by the two leaders) in the implementation of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan," said Ismail Wais in a statement released on Friday.

On Wednesday the two rival leaders discussed ways to expedite the implementation of several matters before the formation of the transitional government in November. The discussions touched on security arrangements, draft constitutional amendment, security laws, peace dissemination, funding the peace process as well as engaging the non-signatories to the revitalized peace accord to come on board.

Wasi said the face-to-face meeting that "resulted in a way forward on pending Security Arrangements issues, is a significant step in the right direction,". before to add that only unity and compromise can allow completing the remaining critical tasks of the implementation process.

"The mood in Juba is very encouraging. It is feasible to form a unity government in November 2019" wais further said in the first statement of its kind.

The Djiboutian diplomat renewed calls for the no signatory groups to join the revitalized peace deal and to take part in the "nation-building".

Also, he called on the international community to back the "positive momentum" and to provide the needed support for the completion of the remaining critical tasks.

    We would trust these two thugs (Kiir and Machar) when they sorted out that 32 faking states issues. Following by Justice for those armless civilians were murdered in cold blood for wrongdoing rather then being from different groups

      You should wage your own war then, I thought that you were a Riek supporter since day one. Once again, I am wondering what kind of people do we have in South Sudan! Please don’t disturb. Ethiopian slaves must identified themselves this time around. Stop servicing two masters!

        Every South Sudanese is a stakeholder to the land called South Sudan, unless by WE you mean jenge, keep chest-thumping strong people!

        The jenge 200 years project is getting frustrated barely a decade into its, implementation, why don’t morons try something that pays off. South Sudan doing really well means the cattle camp has come to town!

      We are moving forward with what we think is good for South Sudan. IGAD is with us because majority of people in South Sudan are standing with us. Any outcry from tiny minorities with be ignored and trashed out. Any stupid person talking about 10 states needs to go to Omar Bashir in prison. 10 states was not South Sudanese idea. Monkeys need to shut up and allow us to run our country.

        South South,

        I don’t care about a majority lot who are largely informed, can’t feed themselves, are killing one another over skinny cattle....I don’t care if such a lot number in zillions.

        The jenge regime has created it’s own headache and if you think dinka supremacy will be sustained by your MAJORITY fuckery, better rethink...!

          When I say we are moving with South Sudan to the direction we think is the best for it, I mean our majority. Country is in our hands, Iam not talking with empty hands like you. The one sitting in power with majority in South Sudan will decide to everyone. Anyone who will resist that MUST leave South Sudan to other places to live like you Eastern. Go to Omar Bashir with your 10 states.

            South South
            A majority that is illiterate, foolish and trigger-happy. With 4m as refugees, more than 7m food insecure, soldiers and civil servants going 6 months without salary, no services, worlds highest child mortality rate, worlds 12th most corrupt country, with Africa’s most uneducated president, SS is just a shithole. A worthless majority like a bunch of gorillas.

          IGAD is a disgusting boot-licking, butt-sniffing and worthless drought-prefecting institution. How can it now hail Riek-Kiirminal face2face meeting when it’s the very institution keeping him under house arrest? Why must Riek request permission to even visit Juba, let alone his troops? IGAD sucks. It has no credibility just a bunch of bush niggas.
