Obongi County Member of Parliament Hassan Kaps Fungaroo has said that the peace agreement which South Sudan President Salva Kiir signed with the rebels this week will not yield any results unless the factors that failed the implementation of the previous agreement get solved.
Fungaroo said that the key players in the peace deal should be left to build trust in each other for the negotiations to take place rather than external forces forcing them to sign the agreement. The agreement aims at ending a war in which tens of thousands of people have been killed.
On the other hand, Kapelebyong County Member of Parliament Julius Ochen said that the United Nations also needs to appoint a competent panel of experts to help the South Sudan Institutions sieve the interest of foreign countries that are involved.
He said that Uganda has an interest in the cease fire agreement adding that south sudan instability directly affects the economy of Uganda by the virtue of its geographical position as neighbors.
South Sudanese President Salva Kiir and Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-in-Opposition (SPLM-IO) leader Riek Machar recently signed an agreement providing to implement a comprehensive and lasting ceasefire in the country ahead of the formation of an inclusive transitional cabinet.
