South Sudan’s former minister of foreign affairs and international cooperation who is also one of the exiled SPLM former political detainees Deng Alor Kuol arrived Juba today Wednesday to attend a meeting of the pre-transitional commitee which is due to take place in the capital Juba.
South Sudan President, Salva Kiir Mayardiit last month formed a pre-transitional committee to oversee then pre-interim arrangement for the formation of a transitional government of a thirty-six month as per the agreement signed in Ethiopia last month.
Speaking to repoprters upon his arrival to Juba, Alor said that the former detainees are for peace and that he comes to the nation’s capital to make preparations for the implementation of R-ARCSS.
“The SPLM leaders are for peace. We have understood that our people can not bear anymore the ongoing suffering and thats why I am here,” Deng said adding that “I came to attend the first meeting of the pre-transitional committee. I am a member of the committee, so we will discuss the program of the peace agreement,” he said.
Deng said altough the agreement might not be perfect, the South Sudanese people need peace to save them from the ongoing suffering that has been ongoing for almost five years now.
South Sudan descended into civil in December 2013 when a national convention for the fractured ruling SPLM party turned violent sparking armed fighting within the SPLA, South Sudan’s army.
