Observers say the latest development is a big step forward in reconciling South Sudan warring factions and return stability to the war-torn country.

The SPLA-IO and the government of Kiir have failed to agree on the formation of transitional government which both sides agreed to in a peace treaty signed in August 2016.

Though the details of the meeting in Uganda remain scanty, Museveni is likely talking to Machar to accept the quick formation of the unity government without conditions.

The peace agreement put in place the formation of the Transitional Government of National Unity which is expected to salvage the country for three years.

The transitional government should organize a national elections and also make the country`s constitution before it`s expiry.
