Machar Leaves Khartoum for S. Africa to Resume Treatment

Khartoum - South Sudan opposition leader and former Vice-President of South Sudan has left Sudan in the early morning heading for South Africa to resume his medical treatment after spending almost two months in Khartoum for the purpose of treatment.
Machar said in a press statements at Khartoum Airport that he came to Khartom for treatment from the sickness he suffered due to going on foot from South Sudan state to Congo state follwing the July events in Juba. He expressed his thanks for the government of Sudan and the people of Sudan for hosting him and acceptance of his coming for treatment in Khartoum, noting that his going to South Africa is for conducting further medical check ups and meeting his private doctor asserting that he is now in good health.
Machar has accused the Salva Kiir government of attempting to assassinate him in the incidents of the Presidential Palace in Juba in July, elaborating that the agreement between him and the government of Salva Kiir has collapsed due to these incidents.
