12 May South Sudan rebels ‘committed’ to ceasefire – Riek Machar
South Sudanese rebel leader Riek Machar has told the BBC he is still committed to a peace deal, despite accusing the government of violating a ceasefire.
He said he wanted further “dialogue” with the government, also alleging that President Salva Kiir was not in control of some of the forces fighting for him.
The government earlier accused the rebels of flagrant violations of the truce, but said it would not break it.
The peace deal to end the five-month conflict was signed on Friday.
