November 4th 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudan President Salva Kiir Mayardit and opposition leader Dr. Riek Machar will meet in the Ugandan capital Kampala on Tuesday, a senior opposition official said.

Manawa Peter Gatkuoth was quoted by Radio Tamazuj on Monday as saying the two men will meet before Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and the leader of Sudan’s Sovereignty Council Abdel Fatah al-Burhan to discuss the outstanding issues.

The Kampala meeting will be attended by President Salva Kiir, President of the Sudanese Sovereign Council Abdel Fattah Al Burhan, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and opposition leader Riek Machar,” he said.

The meeting according to another opposition official will discuss pending issues such as the formation of the unified army, police and national security and also the number and boundaries of the states.

Kiir said last week that he will form the unity government on time as agreed by the parties during a May extension after crucial issues were not implemented by the parties owing to lack of resources and “political will.”
