The meeting between South Sudan’s president and the leader of the rebels, scheduled on November 12 has been delayed to a hundred (100) days due to numerous reasons.
A statement released from the presidency reveals that President Salva Kiir and opposition leader Riek Machar had a pre-meeting in a bid to avoid coalition at the stipulated summit date.
During the summit, an extension period of 100 days was given for the review of some mechanisms put in place for the success of the dialog.
Furthermore, the international organization was encouraged to boost their efforts at maintaining peace within these two parties. The rebel leader Dr Riek Machar’s status was asked to be reviewed as his collaboration will mean an end to uncountable deaths the country has witness within the past few years.
