South Sudan peace process could derail with SPLM’s return to Juba (Youtube-Clip)

“South Sudan’s government says it has began the “real implementation” of the peace accord as Reik Machar’s SPLM-In opposition forces have started arriving in the capital Juba. The arrival of the troops is considered a prelude to the arrival of their leader Reik Machar, to the capital. He had been expected to return to the capital in early March. “The arrival of these officers and … the arrival of forces as of tomorrow, … this means the Vice President will come to Juba any time as of now,” (AfricaNews, 2016).

“You requested me to lead the country again after 2017. Given the importance and consideration you attach to this, I can only accept.  What remains is to follow the normal laws and procedures when the time comes. But I do not think our aim is to have a President for life, nor is it what I would want. Sooner rather than later, this office will be transferred from one person to another in a manner that will serve a purpose, not merely set an example, whether for ourselves or others. That is why we need to remain fully engaged on Rwanda’s journey of transformation.”
