August 28th 2018 (Nyamilepedia)  – South Sudan’s former First Vice-President Dr. Riek Machar Teny-Dhurgon will sign the draft peace agreement on Thursday in the Sudanese capital Khartoum.

This followed an earlier rejection by Machar’s group,  the SPLM-IO and the South Sudan Opposition Alliance (SSOA) to sign the peace agreement over the issue on the number of states and the permanent constitution-making process among others.

In a show of an abrupt change of mind,  Machar according to the Sudan Foreign Minister Al-Dirdiry Ahmed who is also the Chief Negotiator, agreed to sign the preliminary peace deal on Thursday, August 30th 2018.

He said the mediation will in return fill in the points of concerns by Machar’s  opposition group.

“In return, the Sudanese mediation pledged to fill the points that Dr Riek Machar requested to examine it to the IGAD Summit for a mandate to be discussed,” Al-Dirdiry said during a press conference in the Sudanese capital Khartoum.

The Foreign Minister however failed to mention whether the South Sudan Opposition Alliance (SSOA) or not.

The South Sudan Opposition Alliance also in a joint statement with Machar’s SPLM-IO rejected to initialize the draft agreement signed by the South Sudan government along with other insignificant opposition groups based in Juba.

    Dear one, all men are equal they only differ on how they think and handle situation that might be tough to solve. Yes, this is the gap between men and women as well. It is not only that God has put his signature on you to direct the blind but you have to prove that you are trustworthy individual in comparison with others. Yes, the reason I seem to support you very much with the support that is the core of life is that I see beyond human normal sight. And do see for sure what you are capable to do. See non of you know me well personally, you might hear rumors about me and see my name on the social media but sincerely all of you do not know my private life. If you do, you would come to believe every single thing I say because though you see my comment but do not catch the all story. You might read part of my view however, my understanding has no boundary. The reason I am talking about this guy rather than yourself when it seem you have equal strength. I read beyond today and I do not see you beyond tomorrow sincerely. That would seem as fabricating story if I talk about you in a very knowledgeable way. Yes, your secret thoughts are revealed to me even thing that are silencing in your heart. Yes, anyone who love good rather than evil is my guy, but if one use evil to gain name, I will pursue that individual until death overtake him/her. I wouldn’t hide my face from anyone whose thought are evil.
