JUBA OCTOBER 17TH 2019. South Sudan Liberty News has received a credible information from an informant with insiders knowledge within the opposition armed group of SPLA-IO.
According to the source who asked for his identity to be concealed as he was not authorized to talk to the media given the sensitive nature of the matter, reveals that Dr. Riek Machar will be returning to Juba to stay in the coming days with the purpose to oversee in person the formation of the long overdue Unity government.
He said due to the absence of the proposed VIP protection force, Dr. Machar will be staying in the UN compound, and the United Nations Peacekeepers will accord him security protections until the VIP protection force is deployed in the nations Capital.
However, South Sudan Liberty cannot independently verify the claim, our attempt to reach officials from Machar's camp were futile as they did not respond to our quest to verify the claim mentioned here.
Though the remark by South Sudan's presidential adviser on security, Tut Gatluak's statement collaborated the claimed.Last week while addressing the media regards to the effort of formation of transitional unity government, Gatluak stated that the Unity government will be formed on 12 November without delay, he further said preparation for President Kiir to meet Machar and other opposition parties are on the way. According to Mr. Tut Gatluak, the principle peace partners will meet in the capital Juba, however, Gatluak fell short from mentioning the exact date of the proposed face to face second meeting between Kiir, Machar, and other opposition parties.
