Juba, April 18, 2021 (SSNA) — The South Sudanese President Salva Kiir has returned to Juba from Pretoria Sunday evening after three days of talks with his South African counterpart President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Kiir left Juba for Pretoria on Thursday for what his office described as “bilateral relation and peace-related talks” with the South African President. His trip came barely a week after he dismissed top military and intelligence officials.

The South Sudan News Agency (SSNA) has learned from a government official traveling with the President that a group of South African business representatives met with Kiir and discussed investment opportunities in South Sudan. The official also revealed to the SSNA that Kiir invited the unnamed South African business representatives to visit South Sudan at any time for their choosing.
