unity government in Juba, has urged opposition leader Riek Machar and First
Vice President Taban Deng to reconcile and reunify the two factions of the

Peter Mayen Majongdit, leader of the People's Liberal Party, told Radio
Tamazuj yesterday that the leaders of the two opposition factions should be
invited for a peace forum outside the country to set aside their
differences to ensure a smooth implementation of the signed peace
agreement.“There is no peace now in South Sudan. We cannot have a real
peace unless the two factions led by Machar and Taban are reunified,” said

factions should be spearheaded by mediators in Ethiopia for the sake of
peace and stability in South Sudan.He pointed out that a transitional

stakeholders in the country should be formed after the reconciliation
process between Riek Machar and Taban Deng.
