Kiir, Machar ‘Agree To Form Unity Government’

The AFP news agency is now reporting that South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir and his rival Riek Machar have agreed to form a unity government, backing up an earlier report from Reuters.

“We… have said that after the 100 days we have to form the government”, AFP quotes President Kiir as saying.

The two sides in the six-year civil war had given themselves another 100 days after missing a November deadline.

But there are no details about how the government will be formed and a previous unity government, created in 2016 fell apart within months.
