Political parties’ delegation splits up

Author : | Published: Saturday, October 4, 2014

All the political parties’ delegation to the peace talks in Ethiopia has now split into two factions.

SPLM-DC leader, Dr. Lam, who was the head of the political parties’ delegation to the peace talks in Ethiopia, said that the parties who are in the government have formed their own group.

Addressing a press conference in Juba yesterday, Dr. Lam said the parties in the government have elected their own representatives to peace talks.

“What happened is that on the 30th of August the parties that are in the government who were part of us walked out and they formed a group of their own,” Dr Lam explained.

“They elected their people to go for peace talks who are now sent back by mediators. They said ‘we don’t know you’.

“If we are asked to go to Addis we will go because it is not us who refused to go to Addis it is the government which refuse us to Addis.”

Dr. Lam said his group would go to Ethiopia for the peace talks if they are invited.

The division within the political parties’ delegation to the peace talks started in August, when other members of the delegation accused Dr Lam Akol of holding a secret meeting with Dr Riek Machar.

Dr. Lam denied the accusation.
