January 21, 2020 (JUBA) - The SPLM-IO officially endorsed the formation of the transitional government by the end of the 100-day extension and called on the IGAD to assess what has been implemented during the elapsed period.

The endorsement was made in a meeting held in Juba on 20 January by the SPLM-IO leadership council chaired by the Movement’s Riek Machar.

“The meeting endorsed the SPLM/SPLA (IO) position to enable the formation of the Revitalized Government of National Unity (R-TGONU) at the end of the extension of the 100 days presented to Special Envoys and President Salva Kiir Mayardit on 15th January 2020,” says the statement.

The Movement’s Deputy Chairman for Information Manawa Peter Gathuoth said in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune that the meeting reviewed and evaluated the tasks done during the 69 days of the 100 days extension.

Further called on the IGAD to evaluate the past period as the parties because they need to agree on the way forward in the implementation of the Agreement.

“The SPLM/SPLA (IO) calls upon IGAD to urgently initiate the process of the evaluation of the elapsed period of the 100 days’ extension,” he added.

The SPLM-IO and the SSOA called to settle the issue of the number of states before the launch of the transitional pointing to that the number of states will be used to determine the number of the lawmakers of the Council of States.

    Iam for forming the government of national unity on February 22nd, period, with 32 states standing tall. If there are people who do not like that, we can postpone the formation of government of national unity for 200 years so that we can have enough time to talk.

      South South,

      Come February 22nd 2020,if the government of national unity is not formed with the legitimate 10 states, this Riak and other Opposition forces should start preparing strategies to capture drunkard Kiir and his people alive and line them up for crucifixion.Look,we all remember that prophet from Nigeria who talked of ’somebody will be captured alive’ and dealt with!He was not bluffing!

        The Rhino,

        Riek is in Juba and he wants peace. Let’s talk about Kurkoos, these are the people we should be laughing aloud when we see them. Monkeys will remain monkeys. They are now begging to talk to us. By the way, our basketball team moved on for next round as second in its group, Kurkoo!!!!!

        • 21 January 15:42, by The Rhino

          South South,

          Wrong!This Riak is still a prisoner,..moved around with a gun pointed at his head by drought company IGAD and many other greedy bloodsuckers from the region, facts!If he is there for such peace then it must a useless peace!Thats why we encourage the holdout groups to keep momentum high& their heads up and stay resolute, they must never tolerate jienges nonsense!No compromise with....

          • 21 January 15:52, by The Rhino

            South South,

            ..rapists,thieves and murderers!How can a sound minded person expect peace from people who don’t want to accept reforms that will lead to the common good of all people?Well,only Dinka thieves will see these changes as a major blockade to their inherent theft and chaos,and will never allow order,rule of law let alone equal distribution of fortunes to the starving majority,disgusting!

            • 21 January 16:24, by The Rhino

              South South,

              Speaking of basketball,..the Kenyan police authority had arrested 10 highly suspected Dinka criminals after the basketball game.I just wonder if not some of those players are criminals themselves.Do you now understand the level of high alert the whole world has,whenever nations see a collection of Dinka people squatting in their backyards?..Serious stuff!

                The Rhino,

                  South South,

                  Sniffing cow dung in Abyei is one thing,playing real basketball game is another!If you have a bunch of Dinka criminals chasing a ball in the neighborhood,everybody will be talking and worried about them.They are easily recognizable though,..tall,charcoal dark and ugly,grrrh.Those few might be the lucky ones,running around without butchered Dinka Vs(scarifications) in their faces!

      That,s bad hope, government can not be form with 32 states which have no clear boundaries.

  • 21 January 19:08, by Games

    You need to know the meaning of words civilise before you put in writing. How criminals community can be civilized and intentionally try to compare them with high class Nuer. Dinka are still barely naked in their villages lives through unhealthy living. The reason of why Dinka have been heard in some part of Africa are because of their criminaly history and having a dumbest Pr

    The desperate woman Angelina Teny and her husband Riek Machar Teny are confusing themselves. Riek Machar know exactly he is losing popularity within his rebellious Nuers meanwhile, his wife Angelina Teny is thinking about 2016 cut and run to Congo what Idiocy people. The whole world have learned about who is Riek Machar Teny and his rebellious attitudes so they are running out of Ideas. They don’

    President Salva Kiir Mayardit you should talk to yourself about your mistakes in 2016 when giving real enemies to get away while, the Son of famous William Deng Nhial was murdered at the check point. Here’s the question. Can you tell Riek Machar and Lam Akol that, if the 10 States are lawful then what makes 32 States unlawful? 10 States were created by the former president Omar al Bashir through e

  • 21 January 21:54, by Mayendit

    The most problems from president Salve Kiir Mayardit is the way he kept silence and you can’t lead the young nation and people if you keep quiet all the time. Just asking them question because they always making rhetorical complained. We know very well that, 10 States were created using executive power by Omar al Bashir. Tell them if 10 States are lawful thus, what makes 32 States unlawful?.

    • 21 January 22:55, by Games

      Albashir was created those 10 States in nationalism, leadership quality and professionalism ways. However’ in another hands, Salva Kiir is doing it in tribalism directions. 14 out 32 states are Dinka states. He (Salva Kiir) curved every single lands from others tribes across the country and given to you Dinka. Is that what you Dinka call leadership?

        What nationalism and how that make differ from South Sudan nation? The Nuers people are afraid of governing themselves this is why they are complained. Do you guys know the importance of nationalism and patriotism? About 90% of Nuers people are collaborates and traitors so what kind of nationalism are you talking about? The Nuers people are going to have no good future in centuries to come because

        Dinkas/Jaangs are nationalists and high leaders than your Omar Hassan El Bashir. Give us an example any Mr. Salva Kiir gave to Dinkas/Muonyjiengs and I will you an example of Akoba most of Akobo from stolen Anyuak community and Lengecuk from Maban and Burun communities recently in 1980th when South Sudanese people were fighting to get rid our our arch enemy---the cloned so-called>>>>

          arab of North Sudan out of our country. When we tell our Nuers ke nyantoc to grow the damn up then then listen. But they will some of these days listen. No treating brats with kid gloves some these days. There are limits to our Nuers ke nyantoc and some of other low lives who always throw tantrums like babies and then blame their recklessness on the Dinkas/Jaangs/Jenges>>>

            South Sudanese people want to move ahead. Our Pi-bor (water) from Bor was occupied recently by the Murles in 1920th. The Bor South Dinkas/Jaangs cattle didn’t enough water in Pibor, Mac Abol area. And they came back to the main Nile River course. The Murles came from Southern Abesh (so-called ethiopia) and Northern Kenyan>>>

              they follow our Nile streams, Rivers and Lakes just like Dinkas/Jaangs. Didn’t I posted here on Sudan Tribune that the Dinkas/Muounyjangs of the Sudan think, "they own all the cattle on this planet earth?". In Kenya, the Maasai also think, "they also own all the cattle on earth". The Dinkas/Muounyjiengs of the Sudan have long horns, the Maasai cattle have short horns>>>>
