End peoples’ suffering, JMEC official tells S. Sudan leaders


May 23, 2018 (ADDIS ABABA) - It is time for South Sudan leaders to end the suffering of the people, a Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC) official, said at the end of the High Level Revitalization Forum (HLRF) in Ethiopia on Wednesday.

“We have heard the deep yearning for peace by all the people of South Sudan, which was so eloquently expressed in the voices of the representatives of the refugees here at the forum,” said Berhanu Kebede, the JMEC chief of staff.

He added, “We cannot and should not turn a deaf ear to these ever widening cries and pleas for peace.” ?

The official urged South Sudanese leader to abandon the path of destruction caused by the conflict and make the best use of available resources for the good of all people of South Sudan.

“Time is no longer on your side and therefore you must not grow weary in your pursuits. At this point in time nothing is more important to the citizens of South Sudan than the realization of a lasting and comprehensive peace,” further stressed Kebede.

“You must reaffirm your commitment, not only in word, but also by concrete action to adhere to and fully observe the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement (CoHA). By so doing, you would have set the basis for, and provide the best guarantee to bring lasting peace to your beautiful country,” he added.?

The official welcomed the signing of an addendum to the CoHA signed in December last year, saying it fully operationalizes the Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring Mechanism (CTSAMM) Board, which is expected to enhance monitoring and verification of compliance or lack thereof by all parties to the conflict.

Rival parties in South Sudan peace talks concluded the Second Phase of the High-Level Revitalization Forum (HLRF) without striking a deal on the implementation of the governance and security arrangements.

    Nobody will listen to your pleas. The international community has a duty to enforce them to sign the peace deal other we shall perish.

    SPLA/SPLM was not created to listen to civilians! SPLA started as a coercive force and meted untold sufferings on non-dinka people during the war. So nobody in Juba is going to listen to this plea from JMEC or the refugees. Closer to J1, here in Juba are PoCs teeming with Nuer displaced people seeking refuge there from SPLA....

      So what are you going to do now? Making a lot of noise here & there on the the internet isn’t going to do anything. IGAD, JMEC, the AU, the UN & the self appointed so-called troika countries are not going to bring a sustainable peace to our country----in fact the so-called troika countries are the impediment to peace in our country & against our people>>>

    Unless the world comes in and impose peace in South Sudan, peace in this country will only be a mirage. The peace people are yearning for is a just peace. This seems to be hard to achieve as long as those who hold the tools of governance, defence and security are the same. They have hijacked those tools for tribal and personal agenda making the country inhabitable.

      You bonehead are told that your self appointed troika countries have made themselves as the new colonizers of our country & our people. And they have have outsourced their direct colonization of our country & our people to their lackeys in the IGAD & the AU.
