FODAG STATEMENT ON THE RETURN OF THE 1st VICE PRESIDENT

The Foundation for Democracy and Accountable Governance (FODAG) joins the rest of the country in applauding the government of the Republic of South Sudan and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-In Opposition for the giant step towards the full implementation of the peace agreement. We are more so grateful to all those that have worked tirelessly in ensuring the return of now the 1st vice president Dr. Riek Machar to Juba.

We therefore call on the Government of the Republic of South Sudan and the Sudan Peoples Liberation Movement-In Opposition to:

  • Immediately establish the Transitional Government of National Unity (TGoNU) with clear reflection on inclusivity and diversity. We also call upon the parties to expedite the process of selection of the speaker of the Transitional National Legislative Assembly.
     
  • Work towards the Resettlement and Repatriation of Internally Displaced Persons and South Sudanese Refugees in the neighboring counties respectively. Ensure that property that have been unlawfully acquired are relinquished to the rightful owners.
     
  • We explicitly urge the African Union (AU) and the IGAD through JMEC to guide the government and the Opposition to resolve all contentious issues including the 28 States and the cantonment areas in order to reduce the persistent tensions across the country.
     
  • FODAG calls on the civil society fraternity and the media houses in the Republic of South Sudan to remain unbendable in the implementation of this peace Agreement.
     
  • We also urge the international community and particularly the TROIKA countries not to relent from their commitment in ensuring that lasting peace returns to South Sudan.

Finally FODAG wishes to urge the leadership of the Government of the Republic of South Sudan and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-In Opposition to honor their obligations to the Agreement.
