President Yoweri Museveni has received a special message from his South Sudan counterpart, Salva Kiir.

President Kiir’s Special Envoy, Mr. Michael Makuei Lueth, who led a six-man delegation, delivered the message to President Museveni today at State House, Nakasero in the presence of State Minister for Regional Affairs, Mr. Philemon Mateke and Senior Advisor to Uganda Government on South Sudan peace process, Ms. Betty Bigombe, among others. 

President Museveni told the delegation that South Sudan political players should let the people of their country have time to solve their problems. 

The leaders have spent so much time discussing the issue of power sharing. They should allow the people to develop their families, build houses and educate their children,” he said.

“We should now discuss a formula for national elections, not struggling for power all the time,” he advised.
