Where is the Legitimacy of the Government of South Sudan?

During the signing of the so called peace agreement for South Sudan sometimes in 2015, President Salvar Kirr had a number of reservations. In fact, he argued that he had to sign it because he only had two options "accept forced peace or continue with violence." There was no peace from the word go! Who forced the "peace" on South Sudan and why? Why should outsiders insist in implementing a "peace agreement” who’s supposed to be owners never accepted from the word go? The so called "peace agreement" was strictly speaking a power sharing deal but today the power sharing deal is no longer in place as one of the key parties to the deal pulled out of it already. Pedestrian thinkers say, there is "peace" in South Sudan yet the levels of violence and the hemorrhage of people fleeing the country point to the contrary. It so appears that President Kirr is actually implementing his reservations to the so called "peace deal" raising fundamental questions that touch on the very legitimacy of government. Actually, notwithstanding its flaws, the so called "peace agreement" is the basis for legitimacy of the Juba administration; if it collapsed (which I believe is the case), it means that the government of South Sudan is actually illegitimate! What about all these outsiders transacting with an illegitimate government in Juba and why are they doing it?
