South Sudan offered to allow a rebel representative to join its government, but ruled out rebel leader Riek Machar, saying they “had enough” of the man after five years of war against his group.



“Machar cannot be part of government”, Information Minister Michael Makuei Lueth told a news conference in the Ethiopian capital after President Salva Kiir met Machar there this week for the first time since a peace deal collapsed, leading to the deaths of hundreds of people in the South Sudanese capital of Juba.
