Gov’t threatens to end accommodation for opposition peace delegates
November 11th 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudan government has threatened to end hotel accommodation for opposition peace delegates in Juba accusing them of complicating things.
Information minister and government spokesman Michael Makuei Lueth said the government won’t be able to continue with the hotel accommodation saying it is unacceptable.
“They [opposition officials] are only trying to complicate issues, and this is not acceptable – we will not continue to tolerate it,” Makuei said.
Makuei further said the government is not responsible for the continuation of war saying the opposition leadership should accept peace so that life return to normalcy.
“However, the government will not be ready to continue accommodating everybody in both hotels, because it has now become another process,” Makuei said without giving details on what process he mean.
“So this is not our concern but this is a message to them also that we are not responsible for your continuation in the bushes of South Sudan but it’s your leadership,” he added.
