Rights body urges UN takeover of war-torn S. Sudan


January 29, 2018 (KAMPALA) – A South Sudanese human rights body has urged the United Nations to place the war-torn nation under its protectorate status if the peace revitalization fails to achieve peace.

Tito Anthony, the Center for Peace and Justice (CPJ) coordinator, said the coalition government should avoid the repeat the renewed that broke out in July 2016, which led to the death of hundreds of people and displacement of thousands.

He insisted the world body should take over the war-torn East African nation during the transitional period and appoint a government that it can technically supervise as well as support.

“UN should immediately form a government to replace the current regime in Juba as the incumbent president and all armed opposition principals wait for general elections to contest,” Tito said in a statement.

He added, “All forces (police, national security services, army and the other organized forces) for both government and oppositions group should be canton, assemble, train, amalgamated and redeploy after 18 months or 3 months before general election”.

Under the UN trusteeship arrangement, Tito further stressed, the warring parties involved in the South Sudanese conflict return to the negotiating table on governance issues while the position of the president becomes ceremonial.

However, although South Sudan is a member of the world body and has signed cooperation agreements with the UN, working relations between the two entities have been frequently characterised with mistrust and serious of counter accusations.

Since the outbreak of the South Sudanese civil war in December 2013, thousands of civilians have been killed and more than two million internally displaced.

    I would agree with this proposal because this current regime is too deformed to be reform. If given to UN protectorate, then the path to democracy, functional institutions, rule of law, development policies, reorganization of the army and respect for human rights will be created. Then after a given period, elections should take place.

    This damned guy called Tito Anthony is a rebel of SPLA-IO disguised as human Rights activist pure and simple. He thinks that UN can do the job SPLA-IO failed to achieve and that is overthrowing the government. If the position of this nincompoop is taken as it is and implemented by UN, it will mean all countries in Africa will be recolonised by UN because if rebels fail to defeat government

    Continuation— rebels will resort to blackmailing and mudslinging their homes governments so that UN come in colonize their countries. The good thing is that other dignified and proud educated Africans will see through foolish advocacy and will trash it as nonsense because Africa is free forever of colonialism/neocolonialism.

    Proud South Sudanese whether in SPLA-IO, government, or free should be wary of this simpleton moron called Tito Anthony. Peace will be signed soon during forth coming revitalization process but no UN TRUSTEESHIP in South Sudan period.Even the region, Africa, and the whole wide world will laugh at us if UN trusteeship is advocated by us South Sudanese.INFERIORITY COMPLEX reasoning.

    I don’t support idea of taking SS under UN trusteeship simply because that was why UN protect Juba regime for long period of time waiting for civilian to call for UN to take over. Never! over my dead body. Just endorse arm imbargo as well as remove all mercenaries back to their country and let fight be man to man (SPLA-IO Vs SPLA-IG) without UPDF, Egypt, China, GEM, SPLA-N, Rwanda, M23 and Torobor

    That’s a good intimidating tool, but I don’t think it can make any different. The UN is like a tied-down dog. It can bark all it want, but the camel will keep on walking.

    Because of the disagreement in Addis Ababa, the second option will be yanking off those obstructing peace from the soup kitchen. With the current mindsets of Museveni and UhuRuto, the opposition will get a raw deal in Addis Ababa. The good thing is, the TWO REGIONAL SPOILERS have been exposed!
