August 16th 2018 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudan’s Unity States Community said in a statement extended to the Nyamilepedia that they will support the final peace agreement that would be signed by the South Sudanese parties in the Sudanese capital Khartoum.

Early this month, South Sudanese President, Salva Kiir Mayardit, and prominent opposition and SPLM-IO leader Dr. Riek Machar Teny Dhurgon, along with other armed and non-armed opposition groups signed a peace agreement in the Sudanese capital Khartoum.

Regional leaders rallied in the Sudanese capital shortly before the signing ceremony of the agreement which was supposed to be the last agreement between the parties to the South Sudan conflict.

“We shall keep encouraging each other to turn down social media rhetoric and use of such platforms to propagate for peace knowing very well that those who want peace must be too prepared for war. We shall try our best to lobby for the quickest implementation of the Khartoum peace agreement knowing that the signing of the peace agreement is one thing and implementation of the same is another,” partly read the Unity State statement extended to the Nyamilepedia.

The statement further praised the Ethiopian Prime Minister who is seen by many as the peace searcher in the region.

“Those who bring peace in this time of turmoil and turbulence like Ethiopian Prime Minister Dr. Abiya Ahmed are leaders whose time has come in this region. The youth are looking unto peace makers in this very challenging period.  Whatever that will prevent this peace we shall not come from us. Real fighter knows the right time for war and time for peace,” the statement further said.
