According to the document, the negotiating team of the lead negotiator Gen. Seyum Mesfin emphasised on the support the proposal gained from the member of AU, US and EU countries in order to break the deadlock to the stalled peace process.

“South Sudanese need peace, we proposed this initiative for the warring parties to put their egos behind and work for the interest of the thousands displaced South Sudanese in many parts of East Africa and to show leadership for those mercilessly killed by both sides in the conflict,” reads a statement from Mesfin.

According to reports, the proposal didn’t fare well among the two warring sides.

Just after the outbreak of the South Sudan war, IGAD Heads of State met in Nairobi Kenya and had among other proposals, peace talks or power sharing if the worse came to the worst.

The peace talks were realised although nothing positive has come out of the Addis Ababa talks so far.

However, on the side of power sharing, a lot of scepticism was exhibited hence the idea never saw the light of day.

Neither Machar nor Kiir has commented on the said proposal; we are still waiting.

Meanwhile, fighting continues in South Sudan amid ceasefire agreement.
