S. Sudan’s new government to be formed by November: Kiir


September 19, 2019 (JUBA) – South Sudan President Salva Kiir has said the Transitional Government of National Unity must be formed on November 12 as agreed by the parties to the peace deal in May this year.

South Sudan rebel leader Riek Machar (L) and President Salva Kiir in Juba on September 8, 2019 (PPU)

Kiir made these remarks during prayers organised by South Sudan Council of Churches (SSCC) at State House in the capital, Juba on Thursday.

“Through your prayers our wounds people will be healed,” he said.

The South Sudanese leader also appealed to the armed opposition leader Riek Machar to return to Juba ahead of the formation of the new coalition government.

During last week’s meetings between Kiir and Machar in Juba, both leaders committed to the timely formation of the new government.

The two rival leaders also agreed to form a committee that would look into the final report of the Independent Boundary Commission (IBC), number of states and their boundaries and come up with findings suitable for both parties and the people of South Sudan.

On his part, however, Catholic Archbishop Paulino Lukudu Loro appealed to the signatories to the peace pact to ensure the accord if fully implemented and new government put in place as agreed.

South Sudan descended into war in mid-December 2013, when Kiir accused Machar of plotting a coup.

In September 2018, the rival factions involved in the conflict signed a peace deal to end the conflict that has killed tens of thousands of people and displaced over 2 million people in the country.

The power-sharing arrangements under the deal were supposed to take effect in May, but the process was delayed by six months until November as both sides disagreed on security arrangements.

    Please find a solution to number of States, and Boundaries before rushing to form a government operating under unknown States....

      Majority of people in 32 states right now like their states. Do you want Kiir to fight with them to please you or what? This is something Riek created when he came up with 21 states to give Nuer power. 10 states were created by fake Arabs, so not in South Sudan should open This/her mouth and ask us to return to 10 states.

      • 20 September 2019 09:44, by South South

        Cont. When two people disagree on something, they should focus on positive things first then later come back to what is very difficult. Anyone who wants to bring up the numbers of states as first condition, should know that peace will stop there.

        What majority are you bone Head talking about?? The blinds government supporters?? As long as no one was consulted when these nonsense States was created, it’s should be reverse back through the misused presidential decree like the way they came into play today!! Unless if the government does not want a genuine peace....

          Malakal County Simon,

          Blind Nuer is just releasing nonsenses in the net. We are waiting for you to come and dismantle our 32 states if you have that power. Why did you run away from Pagak if you are that very strong? When Riek created his 21 Nuer states, did he consult people of South Sudan or was that the work of defeated White Army? Shut up and tuck your tail and come back to Juba.

            BREAKING NEWS!!!

            The long awaited showdown in Juba/South Sudan is now imminent!I personally urge civilians to take very good cover as we move forward.The peace is dead again,said the wise men!..more news to follow,Amen!!!

      • 23 September 2019 15:23, by Midit Mitot

        South South,

        32, 28 or whatever was designed by your regime will not work since you have rejected 21 states that has good boundaries, otherwise we must meet somewhere in between.

      32 or even 64 states is the best solution for SS. Each ethnic group must develop and defend its territory including all terrestrial and subterranean resources. In this we shall bring the towns to the villages. 10 or less states will only encourage the reverse case and is stupid. I am a Bari and wouldn’t give a fuck to say a jienge in Ruweng state, we have nothing in common.

      • 20 September 2019 15:39, by Malakal county Simon

        Juba one,

        If we can’t developed 10 States when we have them, how can we afford to run the 32 or 64 States like you said!!!!!!!!!!! 10 States at the moment, will be good. Referendum later after stability and peace being restored, will be good.. This is my suggestion which is beneficial to everyone!! Peace first with 10 States, then referendum follow

          Malakal County Simon
          I completely concur with you as a true patriot and nationalist. But reverting to 10 states is now untenable. The SS is economically bankrupt, ethnically divided, socio-culturally broken and rotten. The best each should do, is take care of oneself. There’s no central authority but a rapacious gang of jienge benydits and bandits who have auctioned the SS to Chinese and jellaba

    There was no for Kiir to wait for Dr. Machar to ask for an extension since he and his majority are in control of everything. How is this newsworthy..?!

    Kiir and his majority are for the maintenance of the status quo whoever is against that has the option of living with it or fighting against it. These, unfortunately, are the two options....

    • 20 September 2019 13:30, by james john luka

      You are right, they should work together, but security issues should be the priority not States and boundaries as Malakal County put it, so if they solve the security problems, the boundaries and number of states can be resolve during the transitional period.

      • 22 September 2019 03:26, by choldit

        The number of states issue is a direct thread to our national security. Our people/communities are going to fight over the states boundaries because of the annexations of other communities to others. So having a security arrangement and leaving it to rotten is Unwise.

    • 20 September 2019 13:37, by South South

      What status quo you always release to us when you have no way to go? Anyone who want to dismantle 32 states need to know majority of these states will fight back, that’s reality we have on the ground right now. No one can fight us Eastern, forget about it, peace is the best to all of us including you

      • 20 September 2019 15:02, by Eastern

        South South,

        This is where you folks are clearly shooting the dark...

        The sophistications and reach of Eastern is clearly beyond you village hillybillies. Kiir shouldn’t waste time doing what he can do this September - why should he waite for Dr. Machar, when his majority are with him..?! There’s Gabriel Changson, Chagor, Joseph Bakasoro et al...?! Majority oyee!

        • 20 September 2019 16:34, by South South


          You see, this is the good reason I think you are very stupid an old man. Kiir is not waiting for anyone to support him to have 32 states. He did already create in the face of any monkey. He is sitting on them right now, but stupid monkeys will not see that, I have to explain to them, right now we have 32 states with 32 governors, dumb ass.

          • 20 September 2019 18:21, by injuba

            South South, a dirt-poor country like South Sudan cannot afford 32 states. When the change from 10 to 28 states happened some years ago, UN and other donors warned RSS because of the costs involved. None of the corrupt elite listened. The semi-literate loud mouths announced they had it sorted out. Of course, briefly after it they started begging the international community for support.

            • 20 September 2019 18:57, by Eastern

              Majority oyee...!

            South South,

            Just go ask your skinny toothy mother if she has recovered from the fuck...

            Your diversions are not helping the debates nor Kiir with his majority uninformed who are NOW drinking DEATH from Kiir’s oil exploration - the man even does not know what is happening behind him...!

              I do agree with you on that one. However presidents or prime ministers all over the world don’t know everything. And that is why they have authority (ies) accorded to them by their respective constitutions to appoint their ministers whom they trust can work with them without frictions.
