The two leaders are in their second day of meeting to resolve the outstanding issues in the Revitalized peace agreement.
Expressing his view to Juba Monitor, Deng Ayar Monyluak Deng student of Cavendish University Uganda congratulated the two leading principals on their meeting.
“Whatever affects one it indirectly affects all citizens and to build South Sudan in the region we must live together and interrelate the structures of reality,” he said.
Deng appealed to Dr. Riek Machar to embody himself by embracing this peace with special attention to end the suffering of the citizens.

He added that it signified the total commitment of the government and people of South Sudan to work for peace and no more for war.
“At political level the presence of Dr. Riek Machar in the country definitely marks the end of political vendetta between the two leaders,” Malec said.
“President Kiir is committed to peace and that is why Dr Riek Machar and his delegation are in days in Juba,” he added.

He said his present is an assurance for the formation of the Revitalized Transitional Government of National Unity.
Samuel said Riek’s present would also lead to ironing out the challenges facing implementation of the peace agreement and remove the impediments hindering implementation of the peace agreement.
“His arrivals to Juba also builds confidence between the two leaders and remove the symptoms of enmity within the general public and leaders themselves,” he said.
