October 29, 2019 (JUBA) – In adequate supplied of food and medicines is forcing opposition fighters to abandon cantonment sites in South Sudan, Desta Abiche Ageno, the chairperson of the ceasefire monitoring body in South Sudan (CTSAMVM) said Tuesday.

At least five cantonment sites, he said, are being deserted due to lack of food and medicines, adding that efforts to have a unified army is in jeopardy.

“The lack of sufficient logistic support to cantonment sites - especially food and medicine - has not been addressed and CTSAMVM is observing many of those registered forces now leaving designated sites, including MirMir, Kendila, Sue, Ngo Alimah and Pantiit," said Ageno.

South Sudan descended into war in December 2013 and the conflict has created one of the fastest-growing refugee crises in the world.

In September last year, the South Sudanese arch-foes signed a revitalized peace agreement, aimed at ending the devastating civil war that killed tens of thousands of people and displaced millions.

The parties agreed to commence cantonment of the opposition forces in 25 sites, while government forces are to be cantoned in 10 main barracks spread out in the country, with one for each phase.

As such, it was agreed that a unified national army of 83,000 troops be formed before a transitional unity government is put in place.

The entire process has, however, been marred by delays over lack of funds and logistical constraints ahead of the November 12 deadline.

Last week, the country’s main opposition leader, Riek Machar threatened to pull out of the peace deal if a transitional national unity government is formed minus resolving pending security reforms.

The European Union (EU) on Monday appealed to the warring parties involved in South Sudan’s civil war to implement the September 2018 revitalized peace agreement as required.

    It’s very clear that lack of seriousness from government side of Salva Kiir to implement and saves lives of our suffering populations, led us this scenario.. How can a soldiers be contoned without enough food to eat being provided by the money holders if we are really serious to implement this most wanted peace in good and spirit?????????

        Drought company IGAD or CTSAMVM,etc are part of the problem in South Sudan.Since war broke out in 2013,all they do is watch civilians being looted,displaced and murdered time and time again by Dinka tribal forces across the country.Kiir’s savages even went one step further raping foreign staffs at Terrain hotel and stripping female monitors north of Juba butt naked,but the very...

      I know food is number one issue for IO fighters, they need free food. Many people rebelled in South Sudan because they want to have more food than others. Food is what killing innocent people in South Sudan.

        South South,

        Please understood the concept of the message before you rushed and responded to it.... I was talking sense in regards to what has been stipulated in the Revitalised peace deal that the government will provide food and medicine for the IO soldiers that are contoned.. Are you telling me that the government is deliverately denying both food and medicine in rejecting peace??

          I totally understand the reason IO fighters are leaving cantonment, it’s because of food, food, all food, food and nothing else. Tell me if Iam wrong about that.

        Food is the only reason why you damned Dinka savages are in Juba or Equatoria in the first place.Its no secret that you vagrants left and abandoned your entire villages in Bahr El Gazal and migrated to Equatoria b’cos of the greed to free food.Food is the reason why you jienges are abusing states powers to loot and terrorize civilians.Shut up!

                I read good historic books, trust me.All them books reveal that between 1930s and 60s in Dinka Bahr El Gazal areas, the early christian missionaries who first ventured to your regions were utterly shocked and shattered to see what they saw in your hometowns.They couldn’t believe what they continuously witnessed after landing in your territories.Good God,complete embellishment........

    So, where are they now heading to, if lack of food and medicine is the problem? Rebels shouldn’t rush to loot civilians just like that! Everything take times to overcome, why wait a little bit? Because your boss is here making everything difficult, extending the peace implementation for another six months, that’s a pretty big problem itself. Every hotels is full with opposition leaders.

    • 30 October 10:51, by Kush Natives

      The budget that government trying to allocate for the cantonment is just used up for the hotels bills and foods while the opposition soldiers who supposed to be supplied with such budget are left out! If the government stop hotels bills, then the war will start around j1 again. South Sudanese people are stacked 👆.

        It’s shouldn’t be that way if the government is serious to make in the country.. The hotels should be close down and the funds should go directly to whoever in charge of the peace file because this is what our peoples want.. They want peace and if Salva Kiir deny them this most wanted peace, they will never forgive him!!
