November 5, 2019 (JUBA) – South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir has reiterated his position on the need to form the transitional national unity government on November 12, despite the country’s armed opposition faction’s (SPLM-IO) insistence on an extension of the process.

Addressing the opening of the second session of the Transitional National Legislature under the theme, “Moving forward in the spirit of peace, unity and nation-building”, Kiir maintained his earlier stand on the new government saying all the other signatories to the revitalized peace accord support the formation of the government as agreed.

“As you all know, I have consistently reiterated my position to form the unity government as agreed upon on November 12, 2019. We will go ahead and form the government of national unity,” he said.

Last month, the armed opposition leader told a delegation from the United Nations Security Council in Juba that he was unlikely to be part of the unity government, citing failure to resolve outstanding issues like the creation of unified forces, consensus on the number of states and boundaries as well as the establishment of protection forces.

The pressure is already mounting on the country’s leaders to ensure the national unity government is formed as agreed upon in May.

The United States has expressed frustration with both Kiir and Machar, threatening sanctions if they fail to form a government on time.

On Monday, a US-based think tank warned that South Sudan could slide back into war if a coalition government is formed on November 12 without reaching compromise on some of its outstanding issues.

The International Crisis Group (ICG), in a briefing entitled, “Déjà Vu: Preventing Another Collapse in South Sudan”, said regional heads of states, the African Union and western diplomats should urge Kiir not to form a government minus consensus.

“They should step in to help mediate a way forward, given political paralysis among South Sudan’s neighbours, initially envisioned as the deal’s key guarantors,” argued the group.

South Sudan descended into civil war in mid-December 2013 when President Kiir accused his former deputy Machar of plotting a coup, allegations he 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.

According to the 2018 peace deal, a unity government was supposed to be formed in May, but due to unresolved issues, the parties agreed to a six-month extension, settling on November 12.

At least 382,900 people died as a result of the conflict in the world’s youngest nation, a report published by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine last year revealed.

      Nuers are very weak, they are divided and they lost their God father, Omar Bashir of Sudan. If there is war, we will see people running to PoCs, swampy areas, bushes, roaming in Khartoum, roaming in Addis Ababa. We need peace to save life in our country.

        And this second war will not be like the one of 2013 that was planned by your Dinka tribal-men while other South Sudanese where not aware of it.

    If South Sudanese people want peace among themselves and don’t want to be always used as Geopolitical chess game or football by other countries simply to achieve their own selfish Geopolitical interests over our back, then we must go ahead and form on the 12/11/2011 as stipulated.

      Kiir is always a Brave man. He is someone who stood his ground under any circumstances, unlike your big dog who don’t have solid ideology to hold his followers together. Clutching on blur issues which are self-satisfying, but not for the interest of the suffering population. IO may face another split.

            Jienges are not suffering, they simply are lazy fools and trolls who like free "nyamnyam". Even with looted $billions they can’t develop their shithole jiengestans. Just import a handful of short-legged Chinese dogs or Egyptians to take over your lands. You can work for them as slaves. I know they have enough rice and beans for you.

      This kiirminal is making life easier for the opposition. The more he remains intransigent, the more hardened will the opposition be and the sooner the SS will break up. Exactly how Bashir got obsessed with defeating the SPLA. He dragged himself into real shit and in the end Sudan broke up. Mark my words. SS is on the path of real disintegration. The UN is just waiting to takeover.

He wants his hired hands to be busy and never think of plotting any coups in Uganda. As long as the jienge kiirminal siphons about $6m every month to M7 and steals the gold in Kapwata, that’s fine for M7. It’s getting dirtier b4 it gets cleaner.

    WE need peace in South Sudan to end the suffering of our people. However, forming the government without resolving the outstanding issues, such as number of states and their boundaries, is definitely collapsing of peace and that what General Malong Awan, General Cirilo and General Pagan Amum want. Pakuai you just a damn dunce.
