According to James Gatdet Dak, the spokesperson to Dr. Riek Machar, the SPLM-IO chairman’s delegation arrived in Nairobi, Kenya, on Friday to consult with the Kenyan president, Uhuru Kenyatta, on the IGAD led South Sudan peace process.

“Chairman and Commander-in-Chief of SPLM/SPLA, Comrade Dr. Riek Machar Teny, is currently in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi on invitation by Kenya leadership” Dak said.

“He arrived on Friday accompanied by a number of senior members of the Movement’s leadership. The purpose of the visit is to consult with the Kenyan president, HE Uhuru Kenyatta on the IGAD-mediated peace talks” Dak continued.

During his first visit in May, Machar was accorded a grand reception on a red carpet by the Kenyatta government, a decision that attracted criticism from Salva Kiir regime in Juba.
