    ...this will not work; Kiir has used the National Security [Insecurity] to usurp the powers and roles of the police. All this is meant to delay the implementation of the ARCISS. The major issue at hand is the issue of the 28 tribal enclaves and the cantonment sites in Western Bahr el Ghazal and Equatoria; the rest of the implementation will be a walkover when these major items are addressed.....

      I strongly agree with you, the new ministers in the transitional government must first solve the issue of cantonment in Western Bar El Gazal and Equatoria and then talk to resolve 28 Dinka tribal states. If they do not resolve the issue of 28 states frist, anything else will not work because the Kiir will continue use 28 leaders to undermine implementation of Peace.
