January 12, 2020 (KHARTOUM) - Sudan and Kenya agreed to coordinate efforts between the two countries to achieve peace and stability in South Sudan as a transitional government should be formed next February.

A leading member of the Sovereign Council in Sudan Mohamed Hamdan Daglo ’Hemetti’ Sunday received the Kenyan Special Envoy to South Sudan, Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka.

A statement issued by the Sudanese presidency stated that Hemetti, who is the head of government’s negotiating delegation for peace in Sudan and tasked with the South Sudanese peace process, renewed his government’s keenness to achieve peace in Sudan and South Sudan.

In statements to the media after the meeting, Musyoka said that the meeting discussed the bilateral relations between the two countries, in addition to the implementation of the revitalized peace agreement in South Sudan.

He added that Sudan and Kenya will coordinate their efforts to achieve peace in South Sudan and support the formation of the transitional national unity government.

Hemetti is expected to head on Monday to Juba to resume peace talks with the Sudanese armed groups.

Sources in Khartoum also indicated that Riek Machar, who is confined in Khartoum, will be accompanying him to resume talks on establishing the government and implementing the sticky security arrangement and the states’ number and boundaries.

On 3 December 2019, Musyoka met with President Kiir to discuss the ongoing process to finalise the implementation of the security arrangements.

The Kenyan envoy said that his country asked Sudan to support Kenya in its campaign to fight against the Desert Locust, given that Sudan possesses the expertise, experiences and capabilities in this field.

    "Kenya, Sudan to coordinate efforts for peace in South Sudan"
    Good luck Kenya. I would be damned if we are not going to dance in Nanyuki, Laikipia, Nairobi and Mombasa after we have bombed anything that is connected to your evil white Americans, English people, their evil juus (so-called israelis), Abeshas (so-called ethiopian) prostitutes and some of your creeps>>>

      out of our country and over our people once and for all. What damn peace in South Sudan do these vermin talk about? And Mr. Kolonzo Musyoka is being used by these vermin to propagate their propaganda. By the way fellows, Mr. Kolonzo Musyoka is an honest Kenyan boy. Mr. Daniel Torotich arap Moi asked him to mediate between the peace between ’SPLM/A and our cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan’>>>>

      • 13 January 09:48, by Langbaar

        he fiddled in 1997, because the cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan bribed him or what. For those of us in the know, Mr. Kolonzo Musyoka was bribed by the cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan and their creeps who in between. But again in 1999, SPLM/A and the cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan to Machakos, Ukambani district and that was where the so-called>>>

        • 13 January 09:56, by Langbaar

          Declaration of principles (DOPs) were drafted, and those DOPs were what went and be used in Naivasha Rift valley, which brought the comprehensive peace engagement (CPA) between the mighty SPLM/A with the cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan. Nuba mountains, Southern Blue Nile and our Ngok Dinka of Abyei were told to decide whether they want to be North Sudanese or South Sudanese>>>

          • 13 January 10:03, by Langbaar

            and Abyei border commission (ABC) was formed. The Abyei border commission (ABC) went and reported that the Ngok Dinka are the ones who own Abyei. So what is this Kolonzo Musyoka thinks he is up to in South Sudan? The loser must be very careful. We are not playing games with Bantus. Dr. John Garang was killed on his way from Kampala in 2005 by the US in project>>>

              in Africa, (AFRICOM) and their evil juus (so-called israelis) on his way from Kampala to New Kush. And the losers thought their dirty project would be put on Mr. Yoweri Museveni of Uganda. South Sudanese people ’held their nerves and South Sudan became independence in 2011’. But South Sudan is called a land lock country, and can always be use by some countries like Kenya>>>

              • 13 January 10:16, by Langbaar

                Abesh (so-called ethiopia) is a landlocked country and some do many countries around the world. Being a land locked country doesn’t mean anything. Switzerland in Europe is ’a land locked country’ and Switzerland is not very bad Europe. By the way, Switzerland is where the thieves here in Africa always go and hide their looted money in. But any more some of these days.>>>

          South South
          Fact 1: No peace till issues of justice and addressing root causes ate resolved. Its about governance (federalism), constitutionalism.
          Fact 2: The army is not a monopoly of jienges or Nuers alone. The current retraining of 83,000 between SSDinka Forces and predominantly Nuer IO is a recipe for unending wars.
          Fact 3: No single ethnic group must exceed 20% of new army.

          • 13 January 23:15, by jubaone

            Fact 4: Equatorians will form the predominant army in Equatoria and the jienges or Nuers in their respective lands.
            Fact 5: Presidency must be rotational and can’t be a jienge or Nuer monopoly.
            Fact 6: All IDPs and refugees to return to their ancestral lands. Jienges have no fucking business in Equatoria. They have their lands and all grabbed lands expropriated from jienges without compensation.

          • 14 January 00:32, by South South


            Real peace is coming to South Sudan, fact 1.
            The army will remain the same untouched, fact 2.
            Army will be volunteer choice, those who will volunteer will get it, fact 3.
            Equatorians are welcome to join army if they want, fact 4
            IDPs and refugees to return from Uganda, I welcome that, fact 5.
            President Kiir will lead the country, fact 6
