Rebels burned-down Wau Shuluk & Uwachi folowing Defeat:

During February 2017 the SPLA Division 2 Battalions recaptured the towns of Wau Shuluk & Uwachi, located on the West Bank of River Nile. This was because the rebel forces of Dr. Riek Machar continued to repeatedly attack the town of Malakal from across the west-bank of the River Nile. When the rebels were defeated and subsequently retreated, and in an attempt to deprive the advancing government’s army from settling-down in these towns, they embarked on burning-down the two areas. How unfortunate for the local population, i.e. the Women , Children, the Elderly and Disabled, etc.

Sudan Tribune - 22 Feb. 2017: H. E. Festus Mogae Congratulate President Salva Kiir Mayardit on National Dialogue

The Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC), which oversees implementation of South Sudan’s peace deal, has commended President Salva Kiir for widening the national dialogue initiative to involved more opposition actors in the country. The chairman of JMEC Festus Mogae and the South Sudanese leader met on Tuesday in the nation’s capital, Juba to discuss areas of cooperation.

The closed door meeting, JMEC officials disclosed, focused on the national dialogue as a “gateway to peaceful co-existence among warring communities. “I thanked the President for his emphasis and intentions to implement the much-needed national dialogue which we expect all South Sudanese will take participate,” Mogae, the former Botswana president, told reporters in Juba. The JMEC heads also applauded the president for visiting Yei early this month. “Such initiatives will help in cementing national healing, reconciliation and restore confidence among locals,” Mogae reportedly told Kiir at the meeting.

Hon. Mayik Deng Ayii, the Minister in the office of President Kiir, separately told reporters that the two leaders “had a mutual discussion towards inclusive political dialogue that is aimed at consolidating peace in the country.”

JMEC was constituted according to August 2015 peace agreement that ended the war between the government and South Sudan’s armed opposition faction (SPLM-IO) led by the country’s former First Vice President Riek Machar.
Machar fled the country when fighting broke out in July last year was succeeded by Taban Deng G*i, the armed opposition’s ex-chief negotiator.

President Kiir proposed a national dialogue in December last year and emphasized on Tuesday the importance of including other political actors in it. “I call upon our partners and those in opposition to cast any doubts aside as we genuinely seek to restore peace,” Kiir told lawmakers on Tuesday. The South Sudanese leader, however, said that the national dialogue initiative he declared in December last year was not meant to consolidate his grip on to power. "I also want to make it absolutely clear to those who question and doubt our intentions and to our regional and international partners that the National Dialogue initiative is not a trick, a delaying tactic or a calculated strategy by the government to consolidate its grip on power as anti-peace elements claim”, he stressed.

Breaking News: The Speech of H. E. President Salva Kiir Mayardit on the occasion of the opening of the Transitional National Legislative Assembly of the Transitional Government of National Unity – 21 February 2017

“I want to make it absolutely clear to those who question and doubt our intentions, and to our regional and international partners, that the National Dialogue initiative we have rolled out is not a trick, a delaying tactic, or a calculated strategy by the government to consolidate its grip on power as anti-peace elements claim. We are not in the business of playing tricks, we are a government and our business is to work for unity of the people of South Sudan, protect the Souvereignty and Territorial Integrity of this land, and to uphold our Constitutional and International obligations. I therefore call upon our partners and those in the opposition to cast any doubts aside and join the National Dialogue as we genuinely seek to restore peace and security through the unity of our people”.

The four (4) priorities of my government during 2017 are:

1. To pursue the National Dialogue;

2. To press forward with implementation of the compromise peace agreement signed in August 2015;

3. To reverse the downward spiraling of the economy;

4. To improve our diplomatic relations regionally and internationally.

The full text of the speech is hereby attached for your reference. God bless South Sudan.
