The Prime Minister, who desperately needs peace and prosperity for his country, is promising good deals for the two armed oppositions that did not sign the peace agreement should they step up to return his calls.

The two hold-out opposition groups that did not sign the peace deal today in the South Sudanese capital are the SPLM-North of General Abdelaziz Adam al-Hilu and the SLM of Abdel Wahid Nur.

“I repeat my message to our companions in the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement led by Commander Abdul Aziz Al-Halou and the Sudan Liberation Movement led by Mr. Abdel Wahid Nour, we are still waiting for you” Dr. Abdalla Hamdok said.

“you must join this peace and we will work hard to reach a comprehensive national agreement to ensure completion steps of peace and reaching stability.” Dr. Hamdok continued.

Dr. Hamdok and the leader of the SPLM-North Abdalaziz Adam Alhilu signed the Joint Agreement that called for seperation of state and religion and autonomy of Southern Kordofan, Darfur and the Blue Nile which are now incorporated in the peace agreement.

The government of Sudan and a coalition of armed oppositions under the banner of the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (RSF) signed a landmark peace deal this afternoon in Juba, South Sudan; however, these two oppositions which comprized of break away factions from Darfur’s SLM rebel movement and Nuba Mountains’ SPLM-North refused to join the peace process claiming that the revolution has been hijacked by wrong elements.

The groups have previously called on the transitional government in Khartoum to recall their second most senior, General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, generally referred to as Hemetti, from the peace process for his previous connection to the Janjaweed from the Rizeigat tribe in Darfur.

Hemetti was installed as the Deputy head of the Transitional Military Council following the 2019 Sudanese coup d’état and since then he has been a main component of the peace process.
