Feb 04, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —- South Sudan armed opposition leader Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon is in Cairo, Egypt in a cordial visit extended to him by Egyptian President Gen. Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. Nyamilepedia news crew in Cairo learned that Machar’s plane touched down early Wednesday at 1:15am in the Egyptian Capital Airport and warmly received by the state.

President Gen. Abdel Fattah el-Sisi invited SPLM/A [IO] leader to help in implementing the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan singed in August 2015, the Agreement has subsequently faced a number of stumble blocks in the implementation phase down the road.

Machar’s supporters, sympathizers and journalists were kept at bay in the airport by heavy and very tight security under special force guarding him.

“Dr. Riek Machar safely landed in Cairo’s Airport, the public is not allowed to come closer to him due to special security convoy that was sent to guard him, all the people who reside in Egypt were prevented to meet or see him,” says Zachariah Machar, Nyamilepedia reporter and correspondent based in Cairo.

“The Egyptian Government kept Machar’s visit secret, only the announcement of his visit was made public after South Sudanese people from all walks of life in Egypt complained to state organs in order to make the visit known to the public,” asserts Zachariah.

The Vice President designate Dr. Machar – accompanied by entourage consisting of 12 senior officials including elected Secretary General of Sudan People’s Liberation Movement in Opposition (SPLM-IO) Dr. Dhieu Mathok Diing Wol, SPLM/A (IO) Foreign Affairs Chairperson Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth and Angelina Teny, the Chairperson of National Committee for Security and Defence – has met President el-Sisi and discussed outstanding issues pertaining to peace varying from the newly created 28 states to Security Arrangement in aim to quickly form the long awaited Transitional Government of National Unity.

A Communiqué of the 55th Extra-ordinary session of the IGAD Council of Ministers recently released a report asking the Government of the Republic of South Sudan to “suspend” 28 states and urged both Parties to the conflict to incorporate the Agreement as signed into the Transitional Constitution. The Communiqué also called upon the Government and the SPLM in Opposition to implement the first phase of Transitional Security Arrangements within the first week of February 2016 in order to provide the establishment of the TGoNU.

The SPLM/A leader will brief South Sudanese community in Egypt on Saturday, February 06, 2016, 12:00 pm local time at Zamalek’s “All Saints’ Cathedral Church” in Cairo, Egypt.

  • beek the kiir’s cow keeper,

    I know things do not look good at your side. Your already burning in the fire of hell before satan welcomes to where you belong. I told you long leave any stone unturned when coming to the question of reform in this country. Yet you did call us cowards. Today it is us feeling confidence because we know 99% of the 63 tribes will never vote for kiir. Remember you previous comments when you said you will not see Dr. Riak and comrade Lado Gore will walk in the streets of Juba. It is good that you proved you chicken brain very wrong. Dr. Machar was in Kampala last week and in Cairo this week. He will be in Juba very soon. What can you say you idiot and liar.

    bahr el kara bagar,
    please put into Your mind that Dr. Machar was in Kampala last week and in Cairo today playing great politics. So no need for you to turn going for medical care. you must be stupid like beek the cow. I do not care for you are born with a cow mentality

    • I begin to understand you. I am a victim if that is you try to talk about or bring it up ,keep a secret,my life,my things.my money my future and even my cows,very few,but they are belong to me. Sleep within like a few morally declines SPLM,but ask them because God from above is watching. I know nothing about anybody personal life,but ask ( Kiir and Deng Alor). I should have been grabbed out without any reason.

  • GatNor

Come on bro and let us understand the situation of this country. See now, where are the dollars of Our oil?

  • Few SPLM typically Arabs including our big bro. John Garang,they fall in love within because they can’t go out to hunt. John Garang’s visions means to sleep within because SPLM has disturbed peace.
