South Sudan opposition leader angry over latest extension of pre-transitional period
November 9th 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – A South Sudan opposition leader is angry after President Salva Kiir and SPLM-IO leader Dr. Riek Machar Teny decided in Uganda on Thursday to postpone the formation of the Reconstituted Transitional Government of National Unity (R-TGoNU) for three months.
Peter Mayen, leader of the People’s Liberal Party (PLP) and current chairperson of Other Political Parties (OPP) said the pre-transitional period shouldn’t have been extended arguing that it will prolong the suffering of the people of South Sudan.
“The OPP position is that, we cannot extend the suffering of the people. Therefore any extension without an added value to the process is actually buy real xanax uncalled for,” Mayen said.
Mayen said he is doubtful if Kiir and Machar would meet the latest deadline citing failures to meet previous deadlines as an example.
“The simple logic is, if you couldn’t make it in eight months and couldn’t make it in six months, you will not make it in 100 days. Besides, the extension has not come up with new clear strategic modalities to address the challenges,” Peter Mayen told Eye Radio.
“And we are also going to get new challenges, like the rains and flooding that is happening. Definitely, I doubt that these tasks can be implemented within 100 days. It’s clear unless something like miracle happens.”
