World Politics Review published on 22 December 2016 a commentary titled "Does Any Party in South Sudan Have the Will to Prevent Genocide?" by Andrew Green, a foreign correspondent based in East Africa.
The commentary, paraphrasing outgoing UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, suggests that even if South Sudanese President Salva Kiir is sincere about his commitment to dialogue, an environment does not exist for all stakeholders to participate with freedom and in safety. What does exist are conditions for genocide. Lacking, it seems, is the will to prevent it.
