South Sudan’s Kiir Grants Amnesty to Rebel Leader Machar

South Sudan President Salva Kiir has given an amnesty to all those involved in the nation’s civil war, including rebel leader Riek Machar, state-run television said, days after the signing of a peace deal.

“Republican order number 14 for the year 2018 for the grant of general amnesty to the leader of SPLM-IO … Riek Machar Teny and other estranged groups who waged war against the Government of the Republic of South Sudan from 2013 to date,” Kiir’s order, read on state-run television late on Wednesday, stated.
