>> It was seen as a breakthrough after years of bloody civil war in South Sudan. Just weeks after a cease fire, a power sharing agreement was signed, hopes of peace are once again dwindling.>> That the devil sometimes is embedded in the implementation.>> On Tuesday, the leader of South Sudan main rebel group, Riek Machar, and another rebel group refused to sign the latest draft of a peace deal saying, disputes over power sharing and a new constitution had been ignore.
Since 2013 Machar and South Sudanese president Salva Kiir has stood on either sides of a conflict that has killed tens of thousands of people, displaced an estimated quarter of South Sudan's 12 million population, and ruined an economy that relays heavily on crude oil. Two years earlier, South Sudan had split from Sudan taking with it much of the region's oil reserves.
Khartoum has been brokering the peace talks. And immediately after the cease fire signing at the start of August, it said oil would be pumped from South Sudan's water region to Sudan from the start of September. On Tuesday, Sudanese Foreign Minister Al-Dirdiri Mohamed said it would not be possible to achieve peace without Machar creating the risk that history will repeat itself.
Previous South Sudanese peace deals have lasted only a matter of months before fighting resumed.
