South Sudan Warring Factions Sign Another Peace Agreement | allAfrica.com

Kampala — It was a moment of joy as two warring factions of South Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) and the SPLA-10 Yei River State signed a peace accord in Kampala to end the on-going armed conflict in Africa’s youngest nation.

SPLA-10 Yei River State is one of the rebel groups loyal to former Vice President Riek Machar, who is fighting to depose President Salva Kiir.

The peace accord was mediated by the Evangelical Presbyterian Church leader Bishop Elias Taban Parangi after a four day joint military committee meeting in Kampala.
