Alliance opposition forces free membership group Peter Gadet
Khartoum, July 27, 2018 – South Sudan’s opposition alliance, South Sudan, has decided to freeze the membership of the United Sudan Southern Movement led by General Peter Gadit Yak for a decision to sign a peace deal with the government and the opposition People’s Movement led by former vice president Riak Met in Khartoum on Wednesday.
Members of the coalition, with the exception of Gen. Peter Gedit Yak, refused to sign the peace agreement at first, saying some of the outstanding issues in the document needed further work.
The coalition said in a statement that the decision of the Gedit group to sign the agreement violates the constitution of the alliance, and asked the head of the alliance, Qabriel Shankson of the group Peter Gadit provide a convincing explanation for the alliance.
General Peter Gadet was not immediately available for comment.
