Former South Sudanese leader faces rejection on many fronts


South Sudan former vice president, Riek Machar was in recent days stopped from holding a media conference in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum.

Sudan reiterated its refusal to become a base for any armed opposition against South Sudan on Monday, according to the Sudan Tribune. “Sudan is a basic member in the tripartite committee assigned by the Inter-Governmental Authority for Development in Africa (IGAD) to follow up implementation of South Sudan peace deal,” Ibrahim Ghandour, Sudan’s foreign minister, was quoted as saying.

Ethiopia has also refused to grant Machar asylum. But political analysts in South Sudan say he still has support and should be included in South Sudan politics.
