September 19, 2018 (JUBA) - The Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC) has urged South Sudanese women to be strongly involved in the peace implementation process to ensure its successful achievement to put the country in the path of reconciliation and development.

The call was made by JMEC Ag. Deputy Chief of staff- Strategy, during a women peace march held in Juba on Wednesday in the presence of Presidential Advisor for gender Rachel Nyabak who was the guest of honour.

He said the just-concluded High-Level Revitalization Forum (HLRF) process had been inclusive and that it had particularly ensured women were consulted in the pre-forum stages as well as given more opportunities for representation among the delegates to the talks.

“It is now time for all the women in the country, to unite and together push for their representation, participation and inclusion in the various levels of government, and in the decision making processes to ensure that not only are their voices heard, but also their contribution in the search for peace is being felt”, Dr. Fontaine said.

He further stressed that women should remain engaged in ensuring that the Revitalized Agreement is implemented.

The women peace march was organized by the Women Monthly Forum, the South Sudan Peace Commission, UNMISS and JMEC and brought together about 300 women from various women organizations in Juba.

The event comes within the framework of a series of activities national and international officials in South Sudan plan to hold across the country to promote peace and invite people to espouse reconciliation and nonviolence after five years of war that devastated the country.

He reiterated that JMEC remains committed to not only discharging its mandate of monitoring the implementation of the Agreement but also in promoting women participation in the peace process.

“We in JMEC know that encouraging women to be part of the peace process will significantly increase the chance of success in implementation and reduce the likelihood of returning to war,” he added.

“Let us then work together to realize this Peace dividend, which can ultimately translate to growth and development in the country,”, he concluded.

    SPLA doesn’t regard women. Recently WOMEN and religious leaders wept in Addis Ababa but that did not soften the stone heart of SPLA. SPLA rapes WOMEN, SPLA is murderous, watch out...!

      Do you think really these people have mothers? How else are they supposed to treat women, when they were weaned as early as 7 yra and raised in cattle camps? The cows have become their mothers. A society is judged by how it treats it´s women.

      When someone jumps on the top of a woman at funeral at night and have a baby with her, and call a baby, "KARAMA". Is that respect to the women?

        South South,

        Just educate me if you will, what’s KARAMA...? In your dinka culture, there’s fathers handing over their wives (who are actually the step mothers) to their sons for future services....What’s that KARAMA again...?!

          In Dinka/Monyjang culture. Relation is highly guarded not like your cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan & Middle East. Take for example, relationship is counted ’right up to seventh’ in line before the Dinkas/Monyjiengs ’boys & girls’ are allowed to ’marry’ each other and this is prcisely to ’prevent interbreeding’ and if in case the some boys/girls might have accidently ’impregnanted>>

            each other’ within the ’seventh relationship’ then that relationship is terminated. The baby that resulted from ralationship is kept by the boy family and the boy family ’must pay’ the girl family some cattle. And the boy & the girl are allowed to part ways to go & remarry else where. The whole Dinka/Monyjang community has over ’twenty major’ sections. But the issue of ’marriage’>>>

              is taken very seriously as a matter of ’live & death’ by the whole Dinka/Monyjang communities. Not like with you cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan or Arabia where even cousins are allowed to get away with cousins marriages. I am not a medical doctor though, but the facts are there for all to see. Many people with interbreeding medical isuues are in North Sudan, some parts of ethiopia, Somalia>

                Chad, Northern Nigeria, Arabian countries and other other countries which have taken up that silly Arabian culture. Yes, in some Dinka/Monyjang communities. When a with many wives died and there are no other relatives of his age a live, then an exception is made to let his ’elder son’ with no relationship in the ’seventh line’ with the wife to breed with her>>>

              I am a dinka in a way! But you are telling lies here! Once a polygamous dinka man becomes frail and senile, HE OFFERS HIS younger and sexually active wives to the SERVICES of HIS SONS! There’s nothing in the dinka culture you can educate me on...!

                What ’section’ of a Dinka/Monjang community’ that you cloned so-called arab of North Sudan’s imposter hails from? Tell us Mr. Eastern. That "I am telling lies" Watch your lanaguage impostor. If that Dinka/Jieng community you imposter belongs does that, then tell us that Dinka/Monyjang community chap and I will tell you that you are a big ’liar & an imposter on earth’>>>

                  Some people even called themselves Dinkas/Monyjiengs, even your Omer Hassan El Bashir used to say that he from ’Aliab Dinka/Jieng’ of today’s Eastern Lake state. So I might be surprised that you claim to be a Dinka/Jieng Mr. Eastern. But as far as I am, you are lying. But would be be good if are a Dinka/Jieng boy Mr. Eastern because you are the greatest propagandist on this SUDAN TRIBUNE>>>

                    Mr. Eastern,
                    The Dinkas/Monjiengs have some very ’complex social structures’ trust me. If I can tell you this mister, in Dinka/Monyjang culture, when a boy died before he marries, then a wife is married for him by his *parents & siblings* and the dead boy wife would be bred by his younger sibling and his wife would called by his name & children would be named after him & no>>>

                      one else after his parents, his grand parents, his wife’s parents, his wife grand parents, after the colours of bulls/bullocks or favourite cows given as dowries to his in-laws or our Dinkas/Monjieng gods like ’Nhialic’ like ’Nhial’. Abuk, Garang or Deng (the rain god) or Adeng/Nyandeng (the rain godess) if she is a girl or Akol the (sun god/godess) and so on>>>

                        In other words, Mr. Eastern. No one ’really dies’ according to Dinkas/Monyjiengs customs and cultures. Adinka/Monjieng girls who died before they are married off are ’unfortionately not taken care off like boys. But in some exceptional circumstances, their living brothers can ’name their children’ after their ’dead sisters names a live and be remembered’>>>

                          Mr. Eastern, the Dinka/Monyjieng community is ’a patriachal community’ and more than 90% ’egalitarian community’. In the Dinka/Monyjieng community, a man with 20 herd of cattle can share a table with a man with 3,000 herd of cattle. Greed is prown a upon by the Dinkas/monyjiengs & where does the ’greed’ which ’almost destroyed our country & our people’ came from is always>>>>

Our Dinkas/Jiengs boys have gone to many other parts of the world & some of them have come back with their agressive greed that they went and learnt in those parts of the world & some of them just want get richer quicker than others and get away with it>>>>

But Those Dinkas/Jiengs who came with greed may be teaching the Dinkas/Jiengs people that ’greed’ is a way of life in other parts of the world>>>
