Rebel MP Ssekikubo picks NRM nomination forms.

Lwemiyaga County MP Theodore

Ssekikubo has returned to the NRM

fold by picking nomination forms to

contest in the NRM party primaries.

Ssekikubo says that the

disagreements that existed between

himself and the party have since been

resolved.

The Lwemiyaga MP is part of the four

MPs who were expelled from the

party for breaching rule 4 of the

NRM’s code of conduct, which

prohibits party MPs from going

against party positions.

Sekikubo wants to contest in the

2016 polls as the party’s

Parliamentary candidate for

Lwemiyaga county.

A court case in which he and three

others are challenging their expulsion

is yet to be disposed off.

President Salva Kiir finally signs South Sudan peace deal.

South Sudan president Salva Kiir has

buckled under international pressure

and signed a peace deal in the

Ethiopian capital despite saying he had

misgivings about the deal.

The peace deal Salva Kiir signed

brings to an end a 20-month conflict

in which has left the youngest nation

deeply scarred. His adversary Dr Riek

Machar who is expected to become

the first vice president under the deal

put pen to paper last week in the

Ethiopian capital.

The conflict started in December

2013 when Kiir loyalist troops hunted

down Riek Machar’s forces after what

has remained a disputed coup

attempt. Machar’s forces later

retreated to the oil rich states of

Unity State and Upper Nile where they

waged a rebellion that the

government tried to crush.

At the signing ceremony, Kiir said he

had faced intimidation during the

peace process and added

negotiations were “carelessly”

handled by regional and world

leaders, saying a poor agreement

could backfire on the region.Machar

has also conveyed doubts about

aspects of power sharing. signed
