The South Sudan rebel leader Dr. Riek Machar has appealed to President Yoweri Museveni and other IGAD leaders to intervene in his confinement in South Africa.

On Thursday Machar wrote to World Bank’s Senior Director for Conflict, medicine Violence and Fragility, more about Betty Bigombe who is currently working with Museveni in uniting the factions of the SPLM party.

Bigombe had invited Machar to travel to Entebbe to attend the unification meeting that was scheduled for Friday.

In his response, viagra approved Machar stated that it is not possible for him to leave South Africa where he is confined.

“I cannot travel to Entebbe because I am still under house confinement and detention. It may take President Museveni to intercede with President Zuma and other IGAD leaders to let me free to travel,” part of Machar’s letter read.

Machar went to South Africa after the collapse of the unity government. His bodyguards and those of President Slava Kiir clashed at the presidential palace in July last year just 3 months after the formation of Transitional Government of National Unity.

In the same letter to Bigombe, Machar disagreed with Kiir’s aspirations that the Entebbe process should be to reconcile SPLM/A and implementing the 2015 Addis Ababa peace agreement instead of looking for avenue to immediately end the ongoing war.

“I am surprised that President Kiir asked President Museveni to mediate between different factions of the SPLM/A to engage in part of confidence building initiatives and measures aimed at reviving the Addis Ababa peace agreements rather than making good use of President Museveni to end the raging war,” he stressed.
