South Sudan First Vice President Designate Dr. Riek Machar has congratulated the President Elect Yoweri Museveni of Uganda.
In a message issued on February 20, 2016, Machar also reminds Museveni to play his role in the implementation of the South Sudan peace agreement.
Machar says he is looking forward to working with Museveni to implement the peace resolution.
Meanwhile, Machar who is the SPLM/SPLA (IO) Chairman and Commander-in-Chief on Thursday met the South African President, H.E. Jacob Zuma, in Pretoria.
The two leaders discussed the implementation of the Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan (ARCSS) and its challenges…
“I have come to conclude, once more that trust is an important ingredient to effect the spirit of reconciliation and enabling the agreement implementation process,” he later wrote.
“South Sudanese cannot discuss and build trust from a distance, hence, creating central space for our parties within the country is vital to steer our people towards that direction.”
Machar said the SPLM/A has launched a process to ignite discussion on confidence building between South Sudan parties by sending 309 members of his advance team to start the dialogue.
“The dialogue that will continue to grow through the formation of Transitional Government of National Unity that should restore hope to our citizens sooner than later.”
