Speaking to reporters in Juba, the executive director in the office of the president, James Deng Wal said Kiir and the Kenyan diplomat discussed outstanding issues in the peace agreement, especially regarding the security arrangements.

Kalonzo, on his part, said Kenya is ready to support the implementation of the peace deal and the formation of the Transitional Government of National Unity early next year.

The Kenyan opposition leader was appointed special envoy to monitor peace in the Republic of South Sudan last July.

Kalonzo’s appointment, the Kenyan government said then, showed its commitment towards shared prosperity in the region, in general, and to the pursuit of lasting peace and security in South Sudan through the acceleration of the implementation of the Revitalised-Agreement on Conflict Resolution in South Sudan (R-ARCSS).

Early last month, President Kiir and the country’s 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.

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.

    Peace will not come to South Sudan in the hands of Kenya and Uganda because they are the poorest countries that relied on our resources.

    All South Sudanese know what you are doing, we can not be blindfold by saying that, you are discussing the peace implementation. That is not true we only know that, it appreciation about what you have done in Ethiopia.
    1- You block release of IO leader Dr Macher Teny.
    2- You block the endorsement of 10 states by saying that, it will be discuss in Juba
