July 22, 2017 (GSN) - President Yoweri Museveni has this afternoon received his South Sudan counterpart, H.E Salva Kiir and his delegation at State House, Entebbe.
Mr. Museveni and his guests, who included Mrs. Rebecca Garang, widow of the fallen South Sudanese leader, late John Garang, discussed pertinent political issues affecting South Sudan with a view to re-uniting the South Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) so that Africa’s newest independent country could realize peace and stability.
In attendance were, among others, South Sudan Ministers of Presidency, Hon. Mayiik Ayii Deng, of Defence, Hon. Kuol Manyang Juk and of Foreign Affairs, Hon. Deng Alor Kuol.
Uganda’s Minister for Presidency, Hon. Esther Mbayo and State Minister for International Affairs, Hon. Henry Okello Oryem.
For a second day in a row, I chaired a meeting between different groups of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement at State House, Entebbe.
I am glad that His Excellency Salva Kiir and other political players led by Hon Rebecca Garang have accepted to talk and find solutions to South Sudan’s political problems.
The people of South Sudan gave SPLM incredible political capital in the referendum and subsequent election. This should not be squandered. (Source: SSB)
