Hon Speaker, in relation to the first question, I think all of us know that our country engages quite extensively on the continent to promote peace and stability.
Last year, President Jacob Zuma asked me to be his envoy in relation to the conflict in South Sudan. In that role, I was able to travel - as the hon member asked what I did in October of 2014 - to South Sudan. There I met with a number of leaders, such as President Salva Kiir, the President of South Sudan, and a number of leaders of his party.
I was also able to travel to Uganda, where I met President Museveni. I also travelled to Ethiopia and met President Merriam de Salan. I also travelled to Kenya.
All the countries in that region are involved in the Intergovernmental Authority on Development, Igad, peace process that is being facilitated by the African Union, AU. I was also able to meet the chairperson of the African Union Commission, Madam Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma. In all these discussions we talked of how peace and stability can be fostered in South Sudan.
We principally addressed two issues. The one issue was reaching a ceasefire in South Sudan, where all the parties can work together to bring a cessation to the hostilities. We also got involved - having being asked by the Sudan People's Liberation Movement, SPLM, in South Sudan - in dealing with the key issues that still face the SPLM in South Sudan itself.
So we have been involved in these two-track processes, and now of late, we have been joined by the ruling party in Tanzania, Chama Cha Mapinduzi, as well as the ruling party in Uganda, trying to bring about unity in South Sudan through uniting the SPLM.
Earlier this year, the SPLM factions, if you like, were able to reach a reunification agreement which provides that the SPLM will reunite and those who are in Kenya, and those who are in Ethiopia, as well as in other parts of South Sudan, will get together in Juba with a view to ensuring that the SPLM is once more united.
At a governmental level, as we speak now, the various components of the SPLM are involved in discussions at the Igad level, trying to finalise a deal that could possibly lead to a major breakthrough. So the whole process is one in which South Africa has been actively involved. Thank you.
