‘Salva Kiir Using National Dialogue to Cover Up His War Crimes’

A South Sudanese opposition leader has said President Salva Kiir is not qualified to lead a national dialogue but just using the move to cover up his war crimes.

South Sudan’s opposition National Democratic Movement (NDM) party leader Lam Akol added that Salva Kiir’s dialogue would not help pacify the world’s youngest nation that has been ravaged by war.

“I don’t think that Salva Kiir is qualified to call for dialogue because he dishonoured the peace agreement in July 2016 and caused the ongoing war. The call for dialogue by Salva Kiir is to cover up his military operations,” Akol told Radio Tamazuj.

Akol, Salva Kiir ex-agriculture minister, also denied reports that the opposition, including the NMD), had accepted to take part in the dialogue.

“We are saying that there is no need for the ongoing national dialogue in Juba.”

He has called on the international community to make attempts to resolve the South Sudan crisis inclusive.

“Now there is no peace because the 2015 peace agreement had died and it was buried. So the international community should look for a new inclusive peace process,” he said.
