July 4, 2013 (JUBA) – The bordering states of the Republic of South Sudan (RSS) and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have signed a cooperation agreement to tackle border security, economic and socio-cultural activities between the two sisterly countries.

The five-year renewable agreement was signed on 23rd June 2013 by the three governors of the RSS’ Central Equatoria and Western Equatoria states and the governor of the Province Orientale of DRC.

Central Equatoria state governor, Clement Wani Konga, on Thursday briefed the vice-president, Riek Machar, on the contents of the agreement.

The parties to the agreement have expressed commitment to encourage collaboration between their law enforcement agencies and security organs.

Vice-president’s press secretary, James Gatdet Dak, told Sudan Tribune on Thursday that the agreement also calls for formulation of a joint action plan to improve and promote good relations between the three bordering states.

The three governors also agreed to establish Tripartite Commission and Governors’ Forum as well as sub-commissions on security and border control.

The agreement also calls for cooperation in economic development and socio-cultural activities.

    I think Wani and his son Bakosoro are joking with South Sudanese peoples’ mind. Which security to talk about with DRC? 1- In Congo, there is no respect of individual rights to property by the virtue of Congo’s government support. Soldiers behave like rebels. When a soldier/police travels he loots every person he/she meets without mercy. They loot peoples chickens & goats. CAN BAKOSORO DINIES THIS?

      2- Congo’s rulers don’t care for the ruled. They invite mercenaries to loot for them. Tell us whereabouts of Congo/s wealth! Uranium? Cobalt? Gold? Bauxite? Caladium? Coffee? Who looted? By whose help? Which cooperation do Wani & Bakosoro seek from Congo? Oh yes, women, theft, looting, killing, torturing and smuggling expertise!
      ST, kindly serve us with copy of that agreement for formality.
