Those who are not around will be sworn in as and when they come because the process cannot be postponed,” said President Kiir on Thursday. Different opposition figures including the widow of the late SPLM leader John Garang de Mabior, Kosti Manibe, and Majak D’ Agoot, declined to join the process after their appointment by the President citing the lack of prior consultation and the need for confidence building measures before to hold it. Kiir pointed out the country’s’ needs to be guided by the values of peace and national reconciliation as a way of observing the spirit of Lent. The President went on to emphasising on the values of Christianity. “The fundamental values of Christianity, such as love of the neighbour, forgiveness, reconciliation and peace, transcend the religious domain to be guiding values of our South Sudanese society because they are shared by all of us, regardless of our differences,” he added. The head of state said that the national dialogue would be an opportunity and a process for deep reflection on the values and principles which bind the South Sudanese leadership. President Kiir made the remarks on Thursday to members of the organising committee who have been tasked with various responsibilities to make necessary arrangements for the swearing-in of dialogue committee members. Peace in the country has been unattainable and is constantly threatened but the fractures within the leadership of the major armed opposition parties and within the government.

About that? Dialogue doesn’t want us rather we’re the ones wants it. So, it is a very simple arrangements. Malaak county Simon, see you in the bushes of South Sudan! repondre message 19 May 08:23, by Kuch Even in a family unit, there are some cases where there would be one or two, who just want the whole family go their way or the high way. But these obstinate kind of members are asked in a good faith by their fathers/mothers and their siblings to join the family. And if they refused, then they are left alone and the rest of the family members move on with their lives. So Let those criminals>>> repondre message 19 May 08:32, by Kuch who think they can hold the South Sudanese people hostage in foreign countries go to hell with their foreign masters holding them hostage as their bargaining chips or blackmails to crawl their creepy selves into our country. After all, these criminals taking our country & our people hostage are not new to the current govt. They were the same criminals who looted the South Sudanese people’s money>> repondre message 19 May 08:42, by Kuch and they were the same incompetent losers who have been at helm of governance of South Sudan since 2005 to 2013. So what is their different between the current mobs in the government and them? My own answer is: These criminals who want the South Sudanese people go their way or the high is, they are after their own selfish interests and the interests of their foreign masters, plain and simple>>> repondre message 19 May 08:49, by Kuch The government of South Sudan should talk to the governments of Kenya and ethiopia to tell these traitors to come back home to come & do their obstinate or blackmail-like politicking right here inside South Sudan & with the South Sudanese people. After all, South Sudan & South Sudanese people can’t be ruled in foreign countries>>> repondre message 19 May 08:59, by Kuch As for the re-negotiation of their so-called 2015 peace deal:http://www.sudantribune.com/spip.php?article56093 Let the criminals go to hell, no more negotiations of any kind with any piece rat in foreign hotels, brothels and bars about anything to do with South Sudan and the South Sudanese people’s peace. That so-called 2015 peace deal was nothing to do with the South Sudanese people’s peace>>> repondre message 19 May 09:10, by Kuch But the deal was a hand over of our country to foreign interests. The idiots who keep calling for the re-negotiation of that 2015 damn peace deal are told to re-read the damn document letter by letter & line by letter and understand the damn document & they will understand the damn document was a complete sellout of our country to foreign interests>>> repondre message 19 May 09:23, by Kuch Many of our idiots who always brag to be well learned even seem to be having a huge deficit in English language comprehension. This is what the so-called 2015 peace deal what was about:https://paanluelwel.com/2015/08/14/troika-and-igad-the-unholy-alliance-working-to-invade-south-sudan-in-pretext-of-bringing-peace/ repondre message 19 May 08:15, by Eastern A bus leaving the buspark on its way nearly empty is a loss to the company; Kiir’s national dialogue starting with a handful of his friends and sycophants is counterproductive.... repondre message 19 May 09:06, by Dengda Yes, National Dialogue is the only viable option available to rescues the worsening situation. Then why rushing and dictate it again? This where your failure came in and surfacing as head of state, there are process a lot of process. Prior appointing anyone whether in government position or committee, you must consult X & Y first. Riek, Lam, Changson, Gadet, Thomas and others should included. -- To post to this group, send email to email@example.com To unsubscribe from this group, send email to southsudankob+unsubscr...@googlegroups.com Visit this group at https://groups.google.com/d/forum/southsudankob View this message at https://groups.google.com/d/msg/southsudankob/topic-id/message-id For more options, visit https://groups.google.com/d/optout --- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "South Sudan Info - The Kob" group.
