President Yoweri Museveni has told South Sudan President Salva Kiir to stop fighting in the country so that the people can freely vote for a leader of their choice.
South Sudan President Kiir invited President Museveni to Juba for bilateral talks on issues of mutual interest over the weekend.
The President tipped: "The people of South Sudan should regain sovereignty through the vote. Fighting should stop and people regain their power from those with guns."
The Uganda leader said: "I appeal to the transitional govt and other stakeholders to stop actions of insecurity so that people focus on elections as soon as possible."
President Museveni urged: "About the political situation in South Sudan, my view is that citizens should exercise their self-determination through democracy."
