Kalonzo warns Uhuru, MP's to leave South Sudan alone

17 October 2016, 13:16 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Leave South Sudan to its own mechanisms and do not sanction them, Kalonzo Musyoka has told President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Kalonzo says that talk of sanctions against the world's newest state are premature and cannot be used to draw a line under the country.

He says that he negotiated for long for peace in Sudan and has asked leaders under the IGAD caucus to consider the plight of the country first.

Two Kenya parliamentary teams are considering introducing a motion slapping sanctions on South Sudan, where a full-blown war is imminent.

The National Assembly’s Administration and National Security, Defence and Foreign Relations committees on Wednesday raised the red flag on a looming full-blown war, warning of targeted sanctions on the key perpetrators.

The two parliamentary committees tasked with the country’s security said Wednesday they are working on a joint motion to impose sanctions on the perpetrators of the war.

But according to Kalonzo, they are not something to talk about in this day and age.

" Kenya cannot therefore unilaterally impose sanctions; it’s a self-seeking proposition by the legislators concerned, in my view," he said in an interview published by the Star.

" I can understand the frustration as Kenyan legislators would be seeing that leaders in the new nation have been stealing from their country and investing elsewhere in the region, but that can be handled separately.

" Matters of sanctions cannot be imposed by one country, and can only be discussed within the framework of Igad. These MPs were just addressing the local problem. If you would say the East African Legislative Assembly is looking at this matter, it makes more sense – but unilateral sanctions don’t make any sense.

Kalonzo was one of the key perpetrators of the peace deal that ended the continued clashes in the Sudan.
