It is also seen as a substitute for the IGAD peace process, which suggests the failure of the governance of IGAD and the international community, particularly the troika organizations that finance the peace process. That is why Ethiopian Prime Minister H.E. Halie Mariam Deselgn did not arrive in Arusha and did not send an official government representative to attend the signing of the SPLM reunification agreement. In fact, such statements alone show an element of bad faith in the implementation of the agreement. President Salva Kiir insisted that the word “reflection” of those dismissed has been changed to “revocation” because, when they were removed, they must return to the positions they had held before the conflict. In this case, it is surprising why President Salva has not yet adopted an ordinance of the SPLM party in accordance with the SPLM agreement to bring the dismissed members mentioned in the ranks and records of the SPLM, which gave its first deputy, Dr. Riek Machar nclduing. Is it related to this cloud of doubts in the counter-charge statements between the two SPLM leaders or what? There is something fishy and can jeopardize the implementation of the SPLM reunification agreement. Delegates from three party factions signed a 12-page agreement in Arusha, Tanzania, which outlined important measures for party reunification. Signatories include the party loyal to President Salva Kiir, another called sPLM-in-opposition led by former Vice-President Riek Machar, and a third, made up of party officials arrested at the beginning of the conflict in December 2013.
“Implementation has not reached the timetable. We have not yet defined the number of states and their borders, and we have not yet defined the decentralization of power and resources. We have not unified the army and the integration of the peace agreement into the Constitution is still ongoing,” he said. France welcomes the signing of the reconciliation agreement by the Sudan People`s Liberation Movement in Arusha on 21 January. The agreement is an important step towards a lasting settlement of a conflict that last year displaced nearly 2 million people in South Sudan. The strategic objective of the Arusha SPLM reunification agreement is for the parties to agree to have closed the people of South Sudan. The framework agreement establishes a roadmap for immediately advancing the IGAD peace process, as they eventually became a SPLM family. The agreement focuses on 44 clearly defined reforms, which are, on the whole, considered political, organizational and governance issues. Again, the SPLM is politically committed to implementing the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement (CoH) and all additional protocols signed in Addis Ababa and promises to apologize to South Sudanese for failing their liberation efforts and attacking them instead.
