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.

The monitoring mission added the move came after "after multiple discussions between the CTSAMM leadership and the authorities".

South Sudanese authorities often speak about unilateral decision by officers on the ground, and point it was not a deliberate act.

    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.
