Editor’s Note:

    We reiterate our longstanding conclusion that South Sudanese people could not have suffered death and destruction as much, if peace and reconciliation was not left to the TPLF and IGAD – two sides of a coin (See our: Arusha deal raises hope for South Sudan: Year of bloodshed/division came because of TPLF divisiveness; A new insight, lacking in Ethiopia, may save conflict-ridden S. Sudan)
