South Sudan says JMEC meetings should be held in Juba

November 12, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudan’s Information Minister of Information slammed a decision by the East African bloc to hold the first meeting for the Reconstituted Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (R-JMEC) in Ethiopia.

Minister Makuei was reacting to a decision by the IGAD to convene its first meeting after the signing of the revitalized peace agreement in Addis Ababa on Monday 19 November.

"Why should we go and meet in Addis at the time when JMEC is here (Juba)," he wondered, pointing that transporting all the staff who are based in Juba to the Ethiopian capital and accommodating them there will generate unnecessary spending.

"We do not want all these expenses to be incurred unnecessarily because whatever little money that is there should be spent on peace. Not at the meetings outside South Sudan," he stressed in a press conference held in Juba on Monday.

The South Sudanese government has repeatedly said they do not have the money needed for the implementation of the revitalized peace agreement and called for international support.

However, few countries agreed for the time being to contribute as the Troika countries have given a conditional approval saying they want full commitments of the parties, a genuine implementation and full transparency for the management of oil income.

Beyond the financial aspect, officials in Juba say keeping holding the meetings related to the peace implementation outside the country send a negative image about the security situation in the country.

    You just realized that IGAD is doing business, if you leaders have not fought for power, IGAD would not have involved in countries affairs.

    Well done Great Makuei. Enough is enough for foreigners using our unfortunate situation for their own pockets. No more meetings outside South Sudan for South Sudan. Keep that good fight Hon.Michael Makuei. We have few people of your type here in South Sudan Makuenda.

      Lenin Bullshit,

      The meeting slated for Monday, November 19, 2018 shall take place in Addud Ababa, Ethiopia not this desert hot town of Juba. Makuei can make the noise he can muster. The freaky minister of misinformation is now talking about money as though the tribal regime funds JMEC or now R-JMEC. Once a fool, you will always remain so!

      Jienges can’t claim there’s no money for R-ARCSS implementation while they loot 💰 and buy houses in Nairobi, Kampala, Addis Abeba and buy weapons to fight. The US, Troika should stop this nonsense and take over oil sales to finance this peace. Otherwise this jienge talking parrot should shut up.

    It is indeed a good development, getting rid of per diems meetings/consultations is not worth it this time. Let the hotel owners in Addis know and understand that they should diversify their marketing strategy not relying only on delegation coming to your hotels, seek other avenues like tourist AND forget of delegation coming from he region again to discuss peace.

      Bravo Minister Makuei, this is a wise decision. Why should we waste money after having signed peace with former rebels? The visit of Dr. Machar to Juba proved that the peace will hold therefore meetings should be in Juba from now and henceforth.

        The IGAD organized and is fully responsible for the successful implementation of R-ARCSS, Makuei and SS will be carried whenever and wherever IGAD decides like a suitcase. Suitcases don’t object their owners, they are carried off. So it ain’t a big deal at all. Refusal to go to AA, means jienges want to renege. Cut ? off funds. Period.

While in their indirect rule, some Africans savages who were able to bow down to their Europeans masters were often promoted to rule the headstrong African savages:https://is.mendelu.cz/eknihovna/opory/zobraz_cast.pl?cast=61459
