Congratulations H.E Dr Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka

The people of South Sudan will leave to remember, Wiper Leader H.E Dr Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka for many years to come. When President Uhuru Kenyatta appointed him as a special peace envoy to South Sudan, only a few of us believed Kalonzo can deliver. However, eight months down the line, we have witnessed a formation of a unity government in Juba over the weekend. I can only imagine what Kenya went through in 2007/2008 for just two months, and South Sudan has been experiencing the same for the last six years.

Waking up to peaceful country is what every South Sudan citizen has been praying for since 2013. Only bold leaders can sacrifice to bring peace to a foreign country. A truce between Machar and President Kiir is a big win for South Sudan people who have craved for peace for more than half a decade. It’s very hard to bring together arch political rivals on the same table especially in our African set up. However, through his diplomatic experience, the Wiper Leader has finally managed to strike a peace deal in the newest country in the continent.

In conclusion, H.E Kalonzo Musyoka has once again demonstrated to the whole world what he stands for as a leader. Kalonzo once said Peace is Important than being right. And that could have been the principle that has brought sanity in South Sudan. I urge Wiper Leader, to keep Machar and President Kiir on toes. No bloodshed should be witnessed again in South Sudan because of political disagreements.  Equally, I must applaud Kenyan government for the continuous support it has offered for the youngest Nation in Africa. I believe the people of South will forever be indebted to President Kenyatta and H.E Kalonzo Musyoka.
