The East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) Speaker, Daniel Kidega has called for unity and reconciliation to resolve the current South Sudan leadership crisis.
“We are an Assembly and are very concerned about the political confusion in our newest member state, the Republic of South Sudan, we appeal to all the concerned parties,” said Kidega.
The Speaker particularly pointed out elected government which sits in Juba, to make sure peace prevails and provides opportunity to the South Sudanese to be fully integrated into the EAC process.
The South Sudanese political unrest started way back in December 2013 between forces of the government and opposition forces. In December 2013, a political power struggle broke out between President salva Kiir and his former deputy Riek Machar.
The president accused Machar and others of attempting a coup d’état and ever since then the unrest has not ceased.
