October 12, 2018 (KHARTOUM/JUBA) - The East African bloc IGAD will hold a meeting with the South Sudanese peace partners in Khartoum within ten days to discuss the ongoing implementation process.

In Juba, the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC) on Friday issued a status update on the implementation of the peace pact one month after the signing ceremony on 12 September.

The regional body plans to closely monitoring and supervising the implementation process, and to hold the parties accountable for the delay and obstruction encountered during the process.

IGAD Representative to Sudan and South Sudan Abu Zaid al-Hassan told the Sudanese Media Center that the meeting, which is set for the 22 October, will gather in Khartoum the South Sudanese parties, the IGAD mediation body and the Sudanese mediation team that brokered talks on the outstanding issues.

The meeting will discuss the implementation matrix and outstanding or missed tasks. Also, it will tackle the upcoming activities and the impact of the current delay on its enforcement.

Al-Hassan further said that the IGAD dispatched a technical team to Juba to provide support and assistance in the implementation process, pointing that the delegation will oversee the activities of the different committees recently established in line with the arrangements of the pre-transitional period.

In its first monthly report, the JMEC said that the partners sought to demonstrate their commitment to the agreement through several confidence-building measures in a bid to create a suitable atmosphere enabling the swift and smooth implementation of the deal.

Also, the mechanism took note of the announcement that the parliament will ratify the revitalized peace agreement "in the week ahead".

Further, it disclosed that "firm dates have been set for the inaugural meetings of the National Pre Transitional Committee (NPTC), and the National Constitution Amendment Committee (NCAC), on 21-22 October in Khartoum, the Republic of Sudan".

However, the IGAD peace implementation body "urged the parties to match their action with words by speeding up the releases" of Prisoners of War and detainees.

"There is a need for the government to continue taking additional confidence-building measures and the regional guarantors to ensure the prevalence of a conducive political and security environment in Juba for the return of the opposition parties," says the report.

    Look,

    IGAD is a worthless and literally drought smitten organization in Africa.The money hungry board members such as Museveni and Co. are nothing but plague to the entire continent.There’s nothing profitable or good to expect from these ’old african leaders’.What we need in South Sudan and across Africa,are young dynamic Africans who are ready to challenge these useless power glued old men......

      ...They are nothing but only stabling blocks for young African generations.I’m extremely proud to see young Kenyans and South Sudanese alike,demonstrating under ’ANA TABAN’( I’m tired) in Nairobi against the vermin in South Sudan,Kenya and Uganda.Its not but until the oppressed rise up (If needed violently) and overturn the rule of corruption,nepotism,injustice and impunity,that they’ll prosper...

              Having tiny and very confused group will do nothing to stop peace in Souyh Sudan, internet alone will not do it for you. Just keep lying.

                In fact having a large group of uninformed group of people attempting to run a state has reduced South Sudan to what it’s now....! A Dinka, from South Sudan’s largest tribe, virtually leads every ’government’ department and what do we have: mess!

                  Losers always find something to justify their wicked defeat. Put this into your tiny head. You need people to be with you in order to be a leader and rule. You don’t sit with very empty hands and think internet will help you to top everyone in the country. I want South Sudan to be for all 64 tribes, but those wicked people who want to inject their wicked ideas MUST be cleared.

                    It’s those outside Kiir’s soup kitchen that he’s worried about. Those whom you halfheartedly refer to as losers are the ones you are worried about. Forget those who have not signed Kiir-Museveni-Bashir agreement and move on....!

                      .....what those opposed to Kiir and his henchmen are doing is to RECLAIM their country from fascists. Kiir may be owning the SPLA but he certainly does not own the land on which South Sudan stands..!

                        It’s useless to write lies everyday. South Sudan is for all of us, but wicked people are not welcomed. You have chosen to rebel and refuse peace, good for you. Go ahead with your rebellion, but if you come close to South Sudan you will be crushed. Weak people like you know how to talk, too much talking is not in our genes. We believe in action jobs. Come close and we will show it to you.

                          No...! That blanket statement that South Sudan is for all of us, is bullshit and a fallacy. South Sudan is for South Sudanese. The definition of who is a South Sudanese is the issue. The regime only serves a particular segment of the populace and hence the need to reclaim the country by South Sudanese...!

                            Who really care about what you think. You can say anything you want under your keyboard, that’s not our business. Our business is our country and any attempt to harm our country will be met hard decisions. Our country is what it is, you like it , join it, you don’t, then hit the road. Talking too much without actions is a sign of weakness.

                      The list of members to the pre-transitional committee is 90-95% jienge-Nuer. We Equatorians must keep off and simply support unequivocally NAS, PDM and SSNMC. But it also shows all jienges, Nuers, Collos have terrible fears for federalism. As non progressive ethnicities, they don’t want to do things independently. They are all lucky that we Equatorians didn’t turn our states into shitholes

                        Neither Lam Akol, Riak, Changson and other SSSOA parties ever wanted federalism. A federated SS, most of these junk states would stagnate in a state of anarchy and savagery. We Equatorians have made these ethnicities "human". Even when we advocate to have the capital taken to their shithole states, they won’t accept. Most are illiterate, lazy and only carry guns not pens.

                        These goons still need the US Dollars to implement the shoddy deal they penned recently and that should be their worry. If they needed the Chinese Yuan, they would be a step ahead. For the US Dollars to be coming, Troika is asking for the establishment of the Hybrid Court where folks like Makuei will be arraigned for their crimes...!

                          I´m happy the US govt, Troika, EU have all made in explicitly clear, creation of hybrid court, contain run-away corruption, account for the $14b, implement R-ARCSS in letter and spirit, then you get the some $. The jienge-nyagat regime will need over $600m for implementation and all these "nigga IGAD states" have none. Jienge goons are busy looting. The peace deal is DEAD

                    "I want South Sudan to be for all 64 tribes", how? You greedily want everything but cant do anything. From nothing comes nothing. You dont need any rocket scientist to prove that jienges are congenital losers. Brute force without intellect hasn´t brought you that far. Develop your states first, then SS. A jienge fool need 5 mins to shoot and kill but needs 50 yrs to read and write.

          This is a jienge-Nuer deal and nothing to do with Equatorians. Even the SSOA chairperson went ahead to nominate ostracized Josephine Lagu as board member of the pre-transitional committee. Enter NAS has been overrun by jienge-nuer-Murle opportunists. Gen Cirillo should have NEVER allowed non Equatorians into NAS in the first place.

              I´m grateful that both Eastern and Rhino are "tough Equatorians" who cant be coerced nor bullied by any jienges. Smart, patriotic, hardworking and straight. These are our Equatorian virtues. Again we dont need jienges, nyagats nor anyone to tell us what, how and when to do things. Yes, we can. We DONT NEED the rest for us to move on, but the rest NEED US: Period.

                  ’Muchas gracias’ to both of you! You’ve touched on the very crucial topic which all victims in South Sudan expect to be established in due time,yes the HYBRID COURT! We are going for that one.There are too many questions yet to be answered about the inhumane severity of atrocities jienges and nyagats perpetrated in this country.We’ll not rest until this is properly addressed....

                      We are not apologists nor will we bow down to creatures that want to destroy us. We are at war. The jienge is ready yo kill without mercy and we too, must as a matter of equal response tell the jienge that we’re ready to skin him and defecate into his mouth. Coward Equatorians, apologists and castrated eunuchs can bend their backs and lie low.
