Sudan People Liberation Movement in Opposition (SPLM-IO) have come up with a new condition in order to participate in the National Dialogue initiated by Salva Kiir.  Salva Kiir’s call for “national dialogue” to restore peace after three years of civil war, but said the veteran leader could not lead the process.

” Salva Kiir’s call for national dialogue to restore peace after three years of civil war is a good one but he can’t lead the process”, said spokesman Nyarji Roman.

On Wednesday Kiir launched what he called a “national dialogue” open to all, pledging to guarantee the safety of all sides taking part, including people currently abroad, some of whom oppose the government.
In an appealing speech, the President notably asked citizens to “forgive all the mistakes” he may have made but did not hide the fact that there is violence in recent weeks.
