Gov’t criticizes Entebbe Proposal opposers

The government spokesman has criticized the other opposition parties for rejecting the Entebbe proposal.

Over the weekend, President Salva Kiir and Dr. Riek Machar agreed to the Entebbe proposal.

The proposal which was mediated by Presidents Yoweri Museveni and Omar Bashir states that Kiir will maintain his seat and Dr. Riek Machar will resume his office as the First Vice President.

It also maintains Taban Deng and Dr. James Wani Igga as the Vice Presidents, with another Vice President from the other opposition groups but should be a woman.

But some delegates to the peace talks in Khartoum have disagreed with the move, saying it is a two-man deal.

“The fact that some of them [other oppositions] came here and they have now decided to renege and say that they will not recognize or they don’t accept, that is not true; this is not acceptable,” said Michael Makuei, the Minister of Information.

He said the proposal will be implemented with or without those opposing it.
