Warring parties comment on post-Entebbe peace proposal

South Sudan’s warring parties on Wednesday presented their reservations about the Khartoum peace proposal and presented alternative proposals.

South Sudan's opposition has recently expressed reservations on the recent post-Entebbe proposal for South Sudan's warring parties to share power in a transitional government.

A senior official at the peace talks in Khartoum told Radio Tamazuj that the two sides were waiting to receive a revised peace proposal from the Sudanese mediation team.

Edmund Yakani, Executive Director of the Community Empowerment for Progress Organization (CEPO), urged the warring parties to reach a genuine deal that will bring peace and stability in South Sudan.

CEPO called on the conflicting parties to observe the signed permanent ceasefire. “The reports about the ongoing violation of the signed ceasefire are disturbing and discouraging. It is time to honor the commitment,” Yakani said.
