Mogae resigns as head of South Sudan peace monitoring body


August 20, 2018 (JUBA) - The Chairperson of the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC), Festus G. Mogae, has decided to resign from his position by the end of September 2018.

In a short statement released on Monday, the JMEC said Mogae who proposed the peace revitalization process sent a letter to the IDAG chair and Ethiopian prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali to inform him of his decision.

"as the process to revitalize the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan draws to a close, I have adjudged it appropriate to allow for the new phase of the transition period for South Sudan to be in fresh hands,” said the Former President of the Republic of Botswana in his letter.

Mogae was appointed on 19 October 2015 to head the monitoring commission tasked with the monitoring of the implementation of South Sudan peace agreement.

Mogae was the third president of Botswana from 1998 to 2008 when he voluntarily stepped down for his successor.

Before getting elected to the presidency, he served in many capacities including being the Chairman of Southern African Development Community (SADC) Council of Ministers from 1992 until 1996 and vice president of his country.

    Mogae, became a part of problem in South Sudan after 2016 plots to assissinate Dr Riek Machar. His role was to cover by under reporting president Salva Kiir regime dirty deeds that leaded to J-1 incident and deeds beyond. His both side blaming approach methodology had been a source of encouragement to violate trusts made so far. His today resignation is a success to south Sudanese people.

      Wicked people thought that Mogae was appointed to handover power to them, that’s not his job. He is leaving South Sudan with very clear name to be remembered. Peace has been signed and that was his mandate from the day one.

        That is jienge crap and a stupid assertion. If Mogae adhered strictly to the terms of ARCISS 2015 and rebuked the fake coup organized by jienges, we would have averted all these nonsense. He is a loser and should have resigned as early as 2016. He was a political hostage of the jienges.

          Are you still angry? Your uncles, NAS and PPD(whatever) are with us right now. Peace is coming to South Sudan for real. Mogae was in Juba in 2015 and he knows who started fighting in J1. It’s Riak’s group who did that. Don’t just sit under your computer and start throwing away these empty words.

            It is Riak’s group did this and that. What a rubbish! If your people are ignorant of what transpired in the country, do not assume all South Sudanese are stupid.The people know where you are up to. Your Supremacist policies can never be entertained. Jallaba tried through religion and race. You definitely will fail with your tribalism and corruption in the end.

              Take your nonsense to somewhere else. Your uncles stole SPLA money and then ran to neighbor country and started wicked called NAS. Do you really concern about corruption? All your uncles are crying to promote tribalism in South Sudan, do you really concern about tribalism? Wicked man, shut up and leave us alone.Coward people like to use big words in internet.

Go to your brave savages and kill yourselves, after all you have no intellectual nor socio-economic value to us other than bringing us criminals, thugs, beggars and cheap girl prostitutes in Jebel markets.

                Jienges like South South has no moral nor ethical rights to talk to us about tribalism. Yes, we want a full blown tribal states and jienges have no fucking business idling in Equatoria. We didn’t go to their luaks and have no need at all. Rather, these landless and lazy savages go everywhere like locusts causing havoc and destruction.

The Kiirminal and his jienge surrogates and goons will now have to contend and live with organized people. The time of jienge recklessness, anarchy and disorder will now be rectified by such as Gen Cirillo.

        SouthSudan, I thought mogae mandate was to monitor the peace implementation processes of the 2015 peace, which he wrongly violated by him becoming conspiring partner to president Kiir in J-1 battle of 2016. The man ruined our country for self enrichment. Only heartless south Sudanese can see him as good man, Period!
