South Sudan peace talks on going

The South Sudan peace talk is still on going after some delays in the process last week in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

However, fighting continues is some places in the country.

The President of Sudan Omar al-Bashir arrived in South Sudan yesterday for talks on the crisis with a view to ending it.

Al Bashir’s intervention is coming on the heels of the ongoing talks between the rival groups in the South Sudan imbroglio.

Speaking with respect to the talks, the African Union Chairwoman Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said, “Not a single day can be lost in the search for peace in South Sudan. Stopping the fighting in South Sudan is not only a humanitarian imperative but also a strategic necessity, in order to halt the rapid descent of Africa’s newest nation into collapse”.

No agreement has been reached in the talks, and no truce has been called to stop the fighting. The call for a ceasefire failed in its early days.

It is important to mention that since the bloody clashes started 1,000 people have been killed and 200,000 have been forced to flee from their homes.
