March 29, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudan the Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring Mechanism (CTSAMM) Thursday warned the warring parties against the recent clashes and asserted that spoilers would be held accountable.

The strongly-worded statement came after reports of attacks by both parties in the southern area of Central Equatoria and areas of Upper Nile.

In line with the cessation of hostilities agreement signed last December the South Sudanese army and the SPLA-IO pledged to observe a full ceasefire including the freezing of forces and military movements without prior authority of CTSAMM.

"The 61st Extra-Ordinary Session of IGAD Council of Ministers (on 26 March 2018) underscored its resolve to bring any violators of ACOH and spoilers of the peace process to account," said the statement.

The monitoring body said it would continue to monitor these developments and will send Monitoring and Verification Teams (MVTs) to the areas affected as soon as possible to determine whether any violation has taken place.

The CTSAMM stressed that any violation will be referred to the IGAD Council of Ministers and JMEC.

"Where MVTs are required to conduct investigations, parties are reminded of their obligation to guarantee free movement and unhindered access," it added.

    No Need of going around the bush, we know the violators, it is the SPLM of Salva Kiir. The government does not want peace; well stated by the VP, Taban Ding, no chance for peace between the government and opposition, so why search further, it is the SPLM. Time for IGAD to act as organization that can make change to the pitiful life of the South Sudanese, by calling the government as peace spoile

    Juba Government is not ready for any deal that may bring about the total peace,as that mean giving up some of the positions to others parties.
    The cease fire monitoring body need to be clear in reporting their findings in stead of saying both parties have violet the cease fire.

      Pilot,
      Hubs government is not ready for deal! FYI, we in the government are aware of your deal, but we’re looking for peace, but no deal. All rebels are running after deal, that’s all! And that’s why Addis become our babysitter. That’s the differences now between the government and the traitors. Traitors are after deal while the government is after peace. We have a big issue out there folks!
