4th SPLM National Liberation Council meeting commences

Author : @er | Published: Thursday, May 3, 2018

The SPLM National Liberation Council meeting has commenced without the former first vice president and most of the former detainees.

The meeting is expected to discuss the reunification of the SPLM factions, the High Level Revitalization Forum, and National Dialogue in the country.

The Council members, including Dr Riek Machar, Deng Alor, Majak Agoot, and Pagan Amum, were reportedly invited to participate in the meeting.

Presidential advisor on military affairs Daniel Awet Akot said he is disappointed by the failure of the men to show up.

“I’m asking why I met them [FDs] and I’m the one who built them up. Did I build them up to do that?” he asked.

“I built them up to be with their people and that is why they became commanders. They did not come from the blue.”

Daniel was speaking to SSBC shortly before the beginning of the 4th SPLM National Liberation Council Meeting in Juba Thursday.

Also in attendance are foreign quests, including Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, Egyptian Foreign minister Sameh Shukri and western diplomats.
