Uhuru holds talks with South Sudan rebel leader Machar

29 May 2014, 16:04 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has held talks with South Sudan rebel leader Riek Machar over the ongoing situation in Africa's newest state.

The president and Machar held talks Wednesday night at State House Nairobi where it is understood they spoke at length about the situation in the war-torn state.

Thousands have died in the conflict between the government led army loyal to president Salva Kiir and Machar's rebels with millions displaced.

There has been talk of the UN declaring the situation in the country genocide and several efforts to have a ceasefire declared have all failed.

According to sources, Machar briefed the president on where the peace building efforts have reached as well as the pending issues.

Machar, according to a press release from the Presidential Press Unit, is also said to have briefed president Kenyatta on the ongoing talks to find a solution to the war taking place in Ethiopia.

He is also said to have thanked president Kenyatta for supporting his nation during this time of need.

Kenya has been at the forefront of searching for a solution to the conflict, including housing several leaders allied to Machar's faction.

The president has also been to South Sudan, as have high ranking government officials in a bid to strike a deal between the warring sides.
