In brief message after returning from Addis Ababa, Kiir noted: “If we continue to work according to what we have signed, this bleeding will stop.”

Kiir is also said to have met former political detainees who were for several months jailed for reportedly being part of a wider plan to topple his government after the breakout of fighting in December last year.

IGAD this week resolved that Machar and Kiir must form a transitional government that will lead the nation towards national elections.

The two leaders were also cautioned against resumption of hostilities, with IGAD threatening severe “consequences” possibly sanctions or military action.

Kiir recently said “with peace, unity and continued cooperation, we can do more together and overcome many challenges.”
