March 19, 2019 (JUBA) - The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement In Opposition (SPLM-IO) led by Riek Machar reaffirmed that the completion of the pre-transitional arrangements is crucial for the formation of the transitional national unity government.

"We can’t be forced to establish a Revitalised Transitional Government of National Unity without implementing the security arrangements up to the completion of the training and redeployment of the necessary unified forces," Manawa Peter Gatkuoth, SPLM-IO Deputy Chairperson of the National Committee for Information and Public Relations told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday.

He added that all forces shall be cantoned under the supervision of the current monitoring bodies at their present barracks and sites

The slow implementation of the revitalized agreement is behind the schedule due.

In a report released last week, International Crisis Group said the failure to reach an agreement over the security arrangement may lead to delay the transitional unity government past May to allow the IGAD mediators to organise " a small, limited-mandate third-party protection force for opposition leaders".

Manawa also pointed out the number of states and boundaries which is a key issue in the revitalized peace agreement that ended the five-year conflict in South Sudan.

"We need to agree on the numbers of the states and the boundaries before rushing to form the Government," he said, stressing that the revitalized peace agreement is very clear about the rule of the IBC regarding the numbers of state.

If the IBC fails to agree on the number and boundaries of the states, the Referendum Commission on Number and Boundaries of States RCNBS shall conduct a referendum on this matter asking South Sudanese to choose one of three options, he said.

These options are: "The 10 states or 21 states or the current 32 states or any other number of states agreed by IBC to be offered as an alternative," he further emphasized.

The SPLM-IO media official made his statement as the Independent Boundaries Commission (IBC) concluded a two—day meeting which was the first to be held since the signing of the revitalized pact on 12 September 2018.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the IGAD said that the IBC which will consider the number of states, their boundaries, and the composition and restructuring of the Council of States begun its works

The IBC will receive in the upcoming days a report from the Technical Boundary Committee (TBC), which was tasked with defining and demarcating the tribal areas of South Sudan as they stood on 1 January 1956, and the tribal areas in dispute in the country.

The commission, under the leadership of the South African Thembi Majola will consult the various parties and experts before to submit its recommendations on the number of states and their boundaries to the IGAD Executive Secretariat to be enshrined in the R-ARCSS as an addendum.

    IBC is already abdicating their responsibility by asking South Sudanese to propose the number of states they want!

      Boundaries of the 32 states, that’s totally fine with us. Let’s go for the boundaries of 32 states. 32 states have been cemented, if we want to go for referendum, I will agree for that, other than that, it is done deal. It’s 32 state, period.

                Yes, 32 states are cemented by majority of people of South Sudan. Any talk from minority is useless and wasting of our time. Don’t talk about USA, UK, Norway, Equatoria as general and Vatican. All these countries will go in the end with a strong person who controls South Sudan. Power speaks to have relationship among nations. There is only interest relationship among nations.

                These states that you idiots call junk states are the most productive states at the moment and are Jenge states. Tell us what do a state like Jubek or Yei states offer South Sudan? Absolutely zilch, only some handful of losers addicted to complaining on just about every thing. Who doesn’t know what Juba or looked like when we entered them in 1997 & 2005?>>>

                  Every South Sudanese on the government payroll whether in greater Upper Nile, Bihar El Gazelles or Equatoria get his/her paycheck from oil money. Mined in Ngok Dinka/Jenge territories. But these online trolls and losers will never appreciate this because they are not in South Sudan anyway. Having 10 or 21 states or 3 regions isn’t going to move the Dinkas/Jenges out of Juba or Yei, simple & square

Without clear contontment site, training unified army force, numbers of States first, it’s will be difficult for the smooth implementation of September signed peace.. I hope the peace partner will prioritize those mentioned important points above before rushing of forming a government in May 2019..

              You make me laugh, road ambushes? In Nigeria, people with money prepare to fly to avoid gangs on the streets. These are gangs who ambush people on the roads in South Sudan. Fighters attack government military bases. Gangs are everywhere in Kenya, Uganda, Sudan, DRC and everywhere, but still the leaders of these countries are controlling their countries.

                      There’s NOTHING to discuss. With whom? You’re not the jienge spokesperson and have no mandate thereto. It isn’t in jienge culture to amicably resolve issues. The jienge is innately restless, not at peace with himself and the rest. In Juba arabic we say " mujieng jieng"; unsteady, dichotomous personality, unpredictable, cynical and violent. So chimp. No Dialogue. Case closed.

    That’s correctly stated, that 32 states are well established by will of South Sudanese people and are functioning very well. Otherwise, the other suggestions for the number of states is useless. Majority choice always matter in democratic society. Why do we want to use democracy upside down? Those useless monkeys must be clear on they want.....!

      That is stupid jienge logic. Did you ask SS if they wanted 32 states in the first place? Or are you simply following what your benydits and bandits have chewed and spat into your throats to swallow? So what the fuck don’t you go and develop your states and instead hide in refuge? You think your frail, unskilled and emaciated old jienges will do that?@jiengegohome
