The EastAfrican has learnt from a well-placed source that this was a marathon five hours of meetings between President Museveni, the SPLM-In Government, led by President Kiir, the group led by the widow of the late John Garang, Rebecca Nyadeng and the Former Detainees.
The source revealed that there were also follow-up meetings, whose discussions, if implemented, could shape the way forward for stabilising Africa’s youngest country.
President Museveni adjourned the first meeting at eight o’clock, after the attendees agreed that in order to build consensus, the main opposition group — SPLM-IO — of Dr Riek Machar should be brought on board.
