South Sudan president urged his people Tuesday to "join hands" in implementing a peace deal to end more than 20 months of conflict, after repeated accusation of violating the permanent ceasefire from the both sides, according to Reuters.

"I call upon all of you to join hands with me," he said, urging South Sudanese to work together "during the transitional period until the general elections in 2018, until we bring peace to our country."

"I am committed to peace and the implementation of the agreement," he said.

Rebel leader Machar had also voiced reservations about some power sharing arrangements and other aspects after signing.

The rebel leader, Kiir's long time political rival who is also from a different ethnic group, is expected to become First Vice-President, bringing the two men back into the same government.
