Kenyan VP criticizes new peace draft as threat to 2018 accord

South Sudan’s VP criticized Kenya talks for sidelining 2018 peace deal, alleging new drafts aim to replace it with alternative institutions.

Machar insists talks should uphold, not replace, the original agreement that ended a five-year civil war.

Despite violence persisting, the 2018 deal marked progress, appointing Machar VP.

Talks excluding his group aim to expand peace ahead of December elections, with proposals for transitional period extension.

Kiir received positive updates from negotiators, hinting at nearing a final agreement amid election preparations.
