Include Machar in the National Dialogue -Activist
A civil society activist has called on President Salva Kiir to include Dr. Riek Machar in the National Dialogue for it to achieve its intended objectives.
Mr. Guot Gabriel Manyang, Chairman of Greater Upper Nile Concerned Youth for Peace and Stability (GUNCY-PAS) said without Dr. Riek’s participation, the public will doubt whether the national dialogue will attain its meaningful objective, which is sustainable peace in the country.
“Riek should be included in the national dialogue so that we also hear his side of the story, why is he aggrieved and an amicable solution is reached,” Manyang said.
He further called on the signatory parties to the Peace agreement to respect and uphold the ceasefire declared by President Kiir as a sign of good faith for smooth implementation of the National Dialogue.
“The opposition faction under the leadership of Dr. Riek Machar should respect the ceasefire and not go on offensive,” he said.
“People have been suffering for long and we do not need any offensive attacks but we need dialogue. Let people come together and iron out their differences amicably,” Manyang said.
