South Sudan peace partners meet in Addis Ababa to discuss extension of pre-transitional period on 2-3 May 2019 (IGAD photo)
May 3, 2019 (JUBA) - The South Sudanese peace partners Friday have agreed to postpone the launch of the transitional period for six months to complete the implementation of the pre-transitional tasks.

Also, Juba pledged to provide one hundred million dollars for the implementation of the pending tasks.

Delegations representing the five signatories of the revitalized peace agreement met on 2-3 May in Addis Ababa to discuss the status of the implementation of the pre-transitional tasks and challenges obstructing the process.

"The Parties observed that key Pre-Transitional tasks that are critical for the formation of the Revitalized Government of National Unity such as the cantonment, screening, training, unification and deployment of forces and the determination of the number and boundaries of state are pending," said the IGAD in a statement released after the end of the meeting.

Therefore, the parties decided to extend the pre-transitional period for six months from 12th of May 2019.

Also, the meeting recommended that the IGAD special envoy and RJMEC "convene a workshop for all the security mechanisms to develop a clear roadmap and implementation schedules for the pending tasks and pending tasks and commits to abide by the roadmap".

Due to the flagrant delay in the implementation process, there was an agreement by the parties on the need to extend the pre-transitional period. However, there was a difference over the time needed for the extension.

The SSOA spokesperson Stephen Lual Ngor told Sudan Tribune from Addis that the filed a proposal to limit the extension for three months saying it would be enough if the needed money is available.

However, the IGAD officials worked to convince the parties that a six-month extension is reasonable to achieve the key tasks of the pre-transitional period.

The agreement document signed by the Parties will now be submitted to the IGAD Council of Ministers in a meeting that will be held in Juba on 7-8 May.

$ 100M FOR KEY TASKS

During the meeting, the South Sudanese government has pledged to provide 100 million US dollar to ensure the costly implementation of the security arrangements particularly the armies reunification process.

Also, it was disclosed that the government already disbursed ten million dollars during the past six months.

The parties called on the international community to support the implementation of the R-ARCSS, including by mobilizing the requisite resources.

The meeting also addressed a special message to the IGAD countries which showed less interest in the follow-up of the South Sudan peace implementation process.

They called on the "IGAD Heads of State and Government to convene regular face-to-face meetings of the top leadership of the Parties to the R-ARCSS to review progress towards implementation".

In addition, they urged the "IGAD to engage the partners and friends of South Sudan to secure their full support to the effective implementation of the R-ARCSS, including by regularly convening the RJMEC Partners Forum, to discuss funding and other support to the implementation of the Agreement".

      Nothing will change even after 6 months as long as this nus jellaba Taban Gai is still part of this monkey 🐵 circus. As a former IO kingpin, he knew both Samuel Dong and Aggrey Idri so well. After backstabbing Riek, he wanted to strengthen his bootlicking activities by masterminding the kidnapping and brutal killing of the 2. May the spirits of the dead haunt this jellaba leftover.

        jubaonee,
        If there were not to be lack of serious South Sudanese who know what politics really is, then some serial traitors like Riek Machar, Lam Akol and others shouldn’t be allowed to hold South Sudan and South Sudanese people hostage with their inflated egos to rule South Sudan at all costs however they have been proven big times to be nothing, but bunch of losers with nothing to South Sudan>>

I personally respect Mr. Taban Deng Hai, however he was one of the architect of 2013 foiled coup attempt. But he later went & realised ’what was being done in Adis Ababa’ was not in the interest of South Sudan & the South Sudanese people>>>

              But for the interest of foreign powers. And Mr. Taban Deng Hai & others who blindedly followed Mr. Riek Machar recalibrated their stand with Riek Machar after he returned to Juba in 2015. Mr. Taban Deng Hai & others flexibility is good for South Sudan & South Sudanese people. In negotiations, you can always get what you want 100%>>>

Mr. Riek Machar and his allies know they are negotiating on a terrible weak positions, but their foreign masters from the US, the UK, the UN, NGOs and some creeps here in the AU and the IGAD countries>>>
