He urged the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) to protract talks to close the rift between President Salva Kiir Mayardit and the splinter group of Dr. Riek Machar.


“The people of South Sudan got independence just two years ago but are already fighting on ethnic and tribal lines,” Mbabazi noted.


He, however, refuted the allegations that the Uganda Peoples’ Defence Force (UPDF) is in the wrangling country with the intentions of fighting in favour of one side saying “Our army (UPDF) did not go to South Sudan to fight but to stop the carnage there”.


Mbabazi, on the other hand, called upon the Church of Uganda to lead prayers for peace in South Sudan.


The fighting in South Sudan has put the whole world on tension attracting several groups including UN, AU, IGAD and different heads of state and government with the aim of calling for peace talks between the two conflicting groups.


The Inter-Government Authority on Development (IGAD) is today, Friday, meeting in Kenya in an extra-ordinary summit to forge a way for peace talks.


This summit follows yesterday’s visit by President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Ethiopian Premier who met President, Salva Kiir, to urge him and his former deputy, Riek Machar, to hold peace talks and end the ongoing political crisis.


So far, Kenyatta has stated that IGAD won’t allow the unconstitutional overthrow of the President Kiir’s government.
