The Secretary General of the SPLM party, Pagan Amum has spoken out for the first time since signing the IGAD-plus peace proposal on Monday. Pagan told Radio Miraya in an exclusive interview that he and the other former detainees will remain in Addis Ababa until the government signs the deal. Pagan says he is optimistic President Salva Kiir will sign the agreement after the 15 days he requested for consultations. Pagan also refutes allegations by government spokesperson Michael Makeui that he has left the #SPLM party. #southsudan #igad
