The government of South Sudan is preparing to send to Ethiopia a mobilization team tasked to advance recent national dialogue message to rebel-held territories, according to a leaked document seen by the South Sudan News Agency.
The leaked text shows primary goal of South Sudanese President Salva Kiir and First Vice President Taban Deng Gai is to take peace to areas under control of the armed opposition, and to convince civilians who are in refugee camps, particularly those IDPs living in Ethiopian camps.
“The President [Kiir] is determined to end this war, so our national dialogue team is set to arrive in Addis Ababa…and head to Gambella and stay there for 30 days,” a confidential governmental source who prefers anonymity. The source added that Juba “really” wants its peace delegation to arrive in Addis Ababa by the 5th of January 2017 and return to South Sudan by February 5, 2017.
Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army-In Opposition (SPLM/A-IO) under the leadership of the Former South Sudanese Vice President and rebel Leader Dr. Riek Machar says Juba is just doing all it can to presence itself to the outside world as a peace-maker. The armed opposition blasted the government for not being truthful to the people of South Sudan, IGAD, African Union (AU), Troika, and the United nations. Find the whole story here.
