As President Uhuru Kenyatta received United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon here Sunday, concern on the new wave of violence that erupted in South Sudan last week was a top priority.

In strongly worded declarations, the two called on President Salva Kiir and Vice President Riek Machar to restrain their forces against war by calling for a permanent ceasefire and implementing the peace agreement.

“They must immediately commit to the complete implementation of the peace agreement, including the permanent ceasefire and redeployment of military forces from Juba,” President Kenyatta urged.

Ban was dismayed that South Sudan leaders had failed to honor a world call for peace in the young democracy.

“The two leaders are now disappointing the whole world and I have been urging them that they should listen and hear the voices of the region and the world.”
