August 03, 2016(Nyamilepedia) —– South Sudan’s embattled president, Mr. Salva Kiir Mayardit, reveals that his long-term plan is to restore peace in the country once his long-term rivals, Dr.Machar and others are gone.
Speaking to Jeff Koinange, president Salva Kiir said there will be peace in the country but those of Dr. Machar and unnamed others will not be part of it.
“There will be peace, I’m sure there will be peace but that is a peace where inu I don’t think such characters like Dr. Machar and others should not be part of it”.
Although Kiir’s government has denied having ordered the army to eliminate Machar, Kiir has revealed to Al Jazeera a few days before the July 8th incident that he cannot implement a peace agreement with Machar.
Since the conflict broke out in December 2013, president Kiir has been consistent that he sees no political solution other than fighting it out militarily, however, his rival has hoped that the two could form a transitional government and work together again.
According to leaked documents in circulation, Kiir ordered his chief of army to attack Machar’s residence in Juba and also to pursue him at his hideout, forcing Machar to stay outside the capital.
It has been three weeks since Machar fled Juba, however, intense fighting and bombardment has continued around the capital.
