In South Sudan, rebel leader Riek Machar was sworn in as first vice president today. The rebel leader returns as first vice president in a transition government which will serve for 36 months.
Four other vice presidents from the current regime and other opposition groups will also form part of a bloated government of 35 ministers, in addition to 550 lawmakers.
President Salva Kiir hailed the official ending of the war and said peace was now irreversible as the new unity government was formed after more than a year of delays.
