Last Monday, South Sudanese security forces prevented a CTSAMM team had been prevented from travelling to Yei to assess the security situation there after reports about clashes between armed groups and the government forces but also attacks on civilians.

At the time, the CTSAMM said the incident took place while had obtained the needed authorisations and informed all the concerned authorities, including the Joint Military Ceasefire Commission.

"The CTSAMM team have now successfully carried out their journey and reached Yei Town today, the 30th November, 2016. The team will now undertake a five day mission in the area," said a short communiqué extended to Sudan Tribune on Wednesday.

    How can igad call it a ceasefire team for south Sudan peace while the igad dismissed the SPLA io team member. How can u assess the SPLA io area while their igad team is made up of govt and igad members from other ciuntries not including SPLA ii.

      you are correct Choldit, IGAD is made up of government representative only you can not differentiate between STD IO members with that of KIIR and they should not be allowed to visit SPLA IO areas because it is not the SPLA STD and SPLA IG fighting there in greater Equotoria region let us be clear on that point, we will arest them if they ever dare to come to our areas as they do to our comrad

    All the area of Yei with burnt houses including where there were killing of Kakuwa civilians won’t be accessible to CTSAMM. The Dinka SPLA is a terror Organization!

    this CTSAMM even are doing nothing just enjoy the cohort of Kiir. SPLAM-IO should arrest and torture them if they a cross their territory so that they will know how to negotiate in Juba.
