November 19, 2019 (JUBA) – The United States ambassador to South Sudan, Thomas J. Hushek has urged South Sudan’s rival leaders to hold regular face-to-face meetings as part of their commitment to implement the revitalized peace agreement.

"They need to start meeting regularly. There have been a couple of good face-to-face meetings, but all the leaders need to be meeting regularly,” he told Miraya FM Tuesday.

Hushek, while appearing on the United Nations-sponsored radio, also urged the country’s leaders to establish the habit of collaborative governance.

“They need to be building the habits of collaborative governance so that when they are all in Juba in a unity government they need to be in the habit of meeting daily, weekly, discussing issues, not trying to beat out the other faction, but to govern in a collaborative way,” he stressed.

On November 7, President Salva Kiir and opposition leader Riek Machar agreed to delay key benchmarks in the peace agreement by 100 days.

The delay in forming a national unity government on November 12 came after Machar’s group raised concerns that the country’s security arrangements are still incomplete.

The U.S said it was “frustrated” by South Sudan’s rival leaders for failing to form a unity government as scheduled, casting doubts on their ability to lead the country’s peace process.

Last week, the US, through its aid arm (USAID) provided $92.5 million in humanitarian assistance for people affected by the ongoing conflict and food insecurity in South Sudan.

The donation, it said in a statement, brought the US humanitarian assistance to the people of South Sudan to nearly $4.68 billion since its war began in December 2013.

South Sudan descended into civil war in mid-December 2013 when President Kiir accused his former deputy Machar of plotting a coup, allegations the latter dismissed.

In September last year, the country’s rival factions signed a revitalized peace deal to end the civil war that killed tens of thousands of people and displaced millions.

    South South & Anthony, Pakuai,

    Take note of this statement from Thomas J, and tell your incompetent president to comply with US,AU and IGAD orders.

    Otherwise 100 days will end up with nothing and that will result to fuck you off from the power in February.

      Midit Mitot,

      Please calm down, after 100 days, we know very well how to deal with Nuer tribe. Since 1991 we managed to reduce them to something very tiny. Dr. Woungkel is very sick with cancer, we don’t have to do anything with him. Cancer will take good care of him for us. Let me tell you this. US, AU, IGAD including Sudan know who has the power in South Sudan. They will deal with powerful man.

          Midit Mitot,

          I know very well the history of our struggle because I was there. In 1960s when we were fighting fake Arabs, Nuers were not there. In 1990s when we were fighting fake Arabs, Nuers were in Khartoum eating free Nyantits with fake Arabs and stabbing us on our backs. What do you want me to know ? Your wicked betrayer to our country? It’s is in our history that Nuers can’t be trusted.

            Midit Mitot,

            Anyone who knows Nuer tribe must be very careful to trust them. In 1990s, SPLA was doing very well and from nowhere Nuer betrayed the movement and went back to Khartoum where there was power to eat free things. In 2013, Nuer betrayed South Sudan again and started bogus war, they were alone in Pagak, but they did betray themselves and came back to Juba where there is power.

                    You often see the current Nuer leader(s) like Riek Machar who challenged your misleading rules head on, as the only threats to you, hence eliminating him perhaps dies on natural costs would solves the problem and will lead into a free ride of Jang in SS That will not happen my dear!!
