Uhuru wary of precarious South Sudan situation

17 January 2014, 11:35 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has cautioned that much still needs to be done to ensure that the situation in South Sudan improves.

The conflict in neighbouring South Sudan has entered its fourth week with fighting still going on despite efforts to get a ceasefire in place.

The two sides led by president Salva Kiir and former vice president Riki Machar are yet to agree on a deal that will see an end to the ongoing fighting.

Kenya has been on the forefront of trying to broker a deal to see peace return to the two year old state but president Kenyatta says that it has reached the point where the South Sudanese themselves have to take charge of the situation.

Speaking on arrival from Angola where he had attended a three day summit of the great lakes region, he said thet they will stand by South Sudan but that much needs to be done in order to avoid a full blown out civil war.

" We have all agreed in Angola to continue our efforts to try get a peaceful solution on the South Sudan situation. The overwhelming agreement is that they are our brothers and we have to step in, he said.

He however argued that it was up to the South Sudanese to seek an internal solution.

" We can talk and help as much as we can but the reality is that unless the people of South Sudan step in and work on a solution themselves, nothing will come to fruition.

It has been agreed that the next Summit of Heads of State and Government of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) on the Promotion of Peace, Stability and Development in the Great Lakes Region set for December 2015 will be held in Mombasa Kenya.
