Khartoum: South Sudan government and rebels reach peace deal
07 August, 2018, 05:00
"This agreement will not collapse and I am sure that it will not collapse because the people of South Sudan have now agreed that they must make peace among themselves", Kiir told journalists.
Under the agreement, Riek Machar will join a government of national unity and become first vice president.
The agreement outlines guidelines on power-sharing and governance, including settling boundary disputes, which will be guided by a Boundary Commission, and provides for an avenue for the people of South Sudan to participate in a referendum if need be to settle those disputes.
South Sudan's almost five year conflict began after Kiir accused his sacked vice president Machar of plotting a coup against him in 2013. "Where will I get this?"
The power-sharing deal stipulates that there will be 35 ministers in the bloated transitional government, including 20 Kiir allies and nine backers of Machar along with representatives of other rebel factions. The Parliament will have 550 members, 332 from Kiir's group and 128 from Machar's group.
Uhuru appealed to the political leadership in South Sudan to secure the future of the region by commencing the implementation of the agreement. However, Machar would be only the most senior of five vice-presidents under Kiir.
