Kenya has urged South Sudan to speed up the implementation of the remaining aspects of the peace pact signed in Khartoum, Sudan in 2018.

President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, singled out the establishment of the legislative assembly and reforms in the security sector as some of the pending areas that require attention as the country returns to stability after years of conflict.

He said the country would leverage on its UN Security Council membership to assist her young neighbor and the region to achieve more stability.

Key signatories to the 2018 peace agreement were expected to complete key tasks such as the establishment of local governments, unification of forces and reconstitution of public institutions before the formation of a coalition government in February 2020.
