AFP , Thursday 12 Jul 2018

Parliamentarians in South Sudan voted Thursday to extend the mandate of President Salva Kiir's government for an extra three years, in a move likely to deal a blow to peace efforts.

"The transitional constitution amendment bill number five for the year 2018 is hereby passed by the national legislature," said Speaker Anthony Lino Makana after lawmakers unanimously voted to pass the bill which must now be signed into law by Kiir.
