Museveni meeting South African VP Mabuza

On return from Nairobi this afternoon, President Museveni met with the Vice President of South Africa H.E David Mabuza at State House.

The two held discussions in regard to South Africa’s involvement in supporting the South Sudan peace process.

This follows the recent extension of 100 days that was agreed upon last week in Entebbe.

“Our emphasis lies in the integration of the armed factions into a national army, alongside the political will for a defined national mission,” Museveni said.

Last week, Museveni chaired the Tripartite Summit on the Revitalised Agreement seeking to resolve the South Sudan conflict which was attended by His Excellencies Salva Kiir and Riek Machar.

The summit made several resolutions among which is extending the pre-transitional period for 100 days, with progress reviewed after 50 days.

A mechanism will also be established for Guarantors and Parties to supervise implementation of talks.

The meeting also resolved to ask IGAD countries to address the status of Dr Riek Machar and also urge the international community to continue supporting this revitalised peace process.
