    By Tesfa-Alem Tekle

    April 17, 2014 (ADDIS ABABA) – The South Sudanese president, Salva Kiir, on Thursday arrived in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, where he held talks with Ethiopian Prime Minister, Hailemariam Desalegn on the political turmoil in South Sudan.

    Ateny Wek Ateny, South Sudan’s presidential spokesperson earlier said President Kiir’s visit to Addis Ababa was mainly to discuss the way forward for the ongoing conflict, which has displaced over a million people.

    "President Kiir will also hold talks with the African union and the IGAD mediation team on the current security developments, and to affirm commitment of the government to bringing lasting peace to the country," Ateny told reporters in Juba.

    "The president is keen to see that talks are confined to the two warring parties," he added.

    But while Ateny insisted the visit would focus on the current peace talk process, a senior diplomat at the ministry of foreign affairs and international cooperation, claimed the South Sudan leader was also expected to ask the Ethiopian prime minister, to expedite deployment of the regional troops to replace Uganda forces in the country.

    Kiir recently paid visits to Rwanda, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda where he held talks with leaders of the respective countries on the faltering peace process.

    Part of his visit was also to push members of the East African regional body the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) to immediately deploy peace keeping forces.

    The deployment of an IGAD force - on top of the UN Mission in South Sudan - as had been agreed at previous meeting of the group, but it has been rejected by the South Sudanese rebels led by former vice president, Riek Machar.

    Upon arrival at Addis Ababa’s Bole International Airport, President Kiir was warmly welcomed by Aster Mamo, Ethiopia’s deputy prime minister for good governance and reform cluster and minister of the civil service.

    Government sources told Sudan Tribune that during their meeting, the South Sudanese leader briefed his Ethiopian counterpart on the current situation in South Sudan, as well as his recent regional tour.

    President Kiir and Desalegn have reviewed the way IGAD was handling the peace process between South Sudan’s warring parties since its outbreak in December 2013.

    The two sides also consulted on ways how the next round of negotiations should proceed in a way to that would quickly end the fierce fighting and bring about a peaceful and durable solution to the current crises in the world’s youngest nation.

    The South Sudan leader’s visit comes as the SPLM-in-Opposition forces led by Machar, recaptured Bentiu, the strategic oil-rich Unity state capital.

    Rebels have further launched military attacks to control other key towns.

    There are reports that the two rivals are now engaged in a heavy fighting in Renk County of the oil-rich Upper Nile state.

    South Sudan has been shaken by fierce violence since mid-December last year when rival factions of the presidential guards clashed in Juba.

    The conflict which quickly spread to other parts of the country and eventually took ethnic lines claimed the lives of thousands of people and displaced over one million.

    Continued fighting and food insecurity has also forced over one million people, including some 100,000 people to Ethiopia.

    The two sides signed a shaky ceasefire agreement on 23 January following weeks of IGAD led negotiations in Addis Ababa.

    However, the cessation of hostilities agreement did not stop fighting on the ground with both sides trading accusations of violating the terms of the agreement.

    A fresh round of negotiations between the South Sudanese government and the SPLM/A-in opposition is due to resume on 22 of April in Addis Ababa without the participation of the seven former detainees (SPLM-seven) who were recently excluded from the talks mediated by IGAD.

  • Woman charged with killing Ethiopian husband over his sex demands

     Richfield woman charged with killing husband over his sex demands

    A Richfield woman fatally stabbed her husband in the heart for "wanting to bring another woman into their bedroom," according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday.

    Amreya Rahmeto Shefa, 40, was charged in Hennepin County District Court with second-degree murder in the Sunday slaying of her husband, Habibi Tesema, 48.

    About 5 a.m., police were called to the couple's home at 7338 12th Ave S., where they lived with their 2-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter, on a report of an assault with a knife.

    Shefa ran from the home with blood on her hands and arms, "yelling hysterically ... about her husband and her kids," according to the complaint.

    Officers coaxed the two children from the home and then found Tesema -- naked and covered in blood -- in a bathtub. He had multiple cuts on his body, and there were two knives in the tub with him, the compliant said. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.

    Shefa was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center for a cut on her hand. She told hospital staff that her husband stabbed her "because he had been drinking and taking khat," the complaint stated. Khat, made from a shrub cultivated in the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, has a stimulant effect when chewed.

    However, Shefa later told police she stabbed her husband in the chest and back about 30 times because "he wanted to bring another woman into their bedroom and wished to use a sexual device on her during intercourse," the complaint added.

    The Hennepin County medical examiner determined that Tesema died of a cut to the heart.

    Shefa was being held without bail in the Hennepin County Jail late Tuesday.

    According to the Associated Press, a neighbor said the family is from Ethiopia and moved to Richfield a few years ago.

  • Breaking News: Ethiopia Negotiating to Buy 18 Su-30Ks Fighter Jets

    (DVO) - 18 Su-30K fighter jets that India returned to Russia, probably will not be sold to Vietnam, but instead is Ethiopia.

    Deputy Group Director arms exporter Rosoboronexport Alexander Mikheyev said that Russia is negotiating supply 18 Su-30K fighters to Ethiopia.

    Number 18 multipurpose fighters were returned to India to replace the Russian fighter Su-30MKI is newer.

    "We are in consultation with Ethiopia for the supply of the fighter. They have proposed a variant to modernize, enhance combat capability as well as the specification and provide additional tactics the rocket - to - land / sea more advanced, "said Mikheyev said.

    The Rosoboronexport officials also stressed that, at present, four Su-30K first being repaired at a local aircraft factory.

    "Just got the proposal from customers and financial resources, we are ready to upgrade and modernize all 18 Su-30K aircraft within 4-6 months," he said Mikheyev.

    Complete 18 Su-30K aircraft the IAF was not used in 10 years time, then returned to Russia. This aircraft was delivered to some 558 factories in Belarus to repair and upgrade, before being sold to 3rd party without giving back to Russia to avoid import taxes.

    Each has been much speculation about the fate of 18 Su-30K and its destination. There has been news that Belarus wants to buy the whole lot and that Russian planes do not extend credit to them (Belarus) to purchase the Group's Irkut aircraft, then, a few other sources revealed that customer Nan is Vietnam after Vietnam military mission sent to check out a few planes.

    Since then, no further information about the fate of this 18 Su-30K. However, the recent disclosure of personally Rosoboronexport Deputy Director General that Vietnam will not be a customer of 18 Su-30K aircraft, may be negotiated by the two parties, but does not meet requirements of each other, or maybe, Vietnam will not buy old planes instead is buying new aircraft Su-30 at a point!
