In a statement extended to Sudan Tribune, the Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring Mechanism (CTSAMM) said one of its teams was "denied freedom of movement while trying to reach Yei to conduct an assessment of the area and carry out its mandated activities".

The ceasefire monitoring mechanism said they got the green light from all the concerned authorities including the Joint Military Ceasefire Commission since early this month.

"However when the MVT began their journey from Juba this morning they were stopped at a check point on the outskirts of the city and told they would not be allowed pass beyond that point," said the statement.

Since last summer, different reports emerged from the areas speaking about attacks by armed opposition elements in the area who are designed as "terrorists" or ’’anti-peace elements’’ by the local authorities. Other reports also mention violent counterinsurgency operations by the government army in the area.

On 12 November Adama Dieng, U.N. special adviser on prevention of genocide, called to probe the human rights violations in the state, stressing the gravity of the situation there "merits immediate intervention – a full scale fact-finding investigation and enhanced humanitarian support".

Also, Dieng motioned reports about the expulsion of farmers from their agricultural plots into Yei town. "These farmers have lost their homes and belongings, livestock and land. Property has been looted and villages have been burned," he said.

The ceasefire mechanism called on the Transitional Government of National Unity to intervene in this issue to ensure that its teams can visit Yei.

" The CTSAMM would like to reiterate that it has a legal right to be present in South Sudan as stipulated in Chapter II of the ARCSS, and condemns, in the strongest terms, the denial of freedom of movement for the CTSAMM MVTs," said the statement.

In line with the peace agreement, the CTSAMM tasked with the monitoring of the implementation of the Permanent Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements (PCTSA).

    Dinka tribal gang leader Kiir would not allow truth seekers to enter the places where civilians were mass murdered. The Dinka gang leader use his tribal men to massacre women, blinds, cripples, and elderly citizens in their own houses. This is the government the Obama’s administration supported to the core. No matter how powerful are Kiir and Obama, South Sudan is yet to overcome this humiliation.

      Naath, blocking peace monitors to visit Yei has nothing to do with Dinka, but please the more you people distance yourselves in the name of being Nuer or Nuer IO, the more you widen a gap of your success as an organization that is fighting for change as your foolish Leader claim so.

      You better leave South Sudan and go where you believed you can live peacefully. After all you didn’t participate in liberation for the independence of South Sudan. Soon UNMISS who play dirty game to destabilize South Sudan will be living South Sudan in shorter time and South Sudan will be peaceful and all tribes enjoy their harmony.

        Understand that it is Obama administration that safe your tribal chief Kiir’s government from collapsing because the Obama’s administration is threatening Countries that might help IO with sanction while asking other countries to join the war in Kiir’s side.

          Imagine your tribal government lead by Dinka warlords get help from Uganda, Congolese rebels, Darfurrians rebels, SPLA-N, Egypt, Israel, Rwanda and Burundi, Kenya and the United States and you have not defeated the IO yet. I believe it was the SPLA-IO being helped by those countries, then your Dinka’s tribal leader would not be still drinking alcohol in Juba by now.

    There is no reason why witnesses of atrocities should be barred from going to theatres of war apart from concealing evidence of ethnic cleansing or genocide for that matter. Our people are being killed by the tools that are supposed to protect and defend them. It is a sorry matter that Dinka are killing South Sudanese just like the Arabs did even worse than what the Jallabas did.

        Indeed, Jallaba are better to continue fucking both men and women in Juba. They Dinka do not do that and that is why you are bitter. You do not feel any humiliation at all. Rujal Mafi, Lubas mafi, Milikia, Hai Jallaba are what you need the Dinka to do so that you think they are better than the Arabs. Shame on you people.

      Jienges are out there to kill without mercy and you MUST do whatever it takes to kill him b4 he gets you. That’s the rule. Why should the international community care if Juba doesn’t care in the first place? Stop agonizing and organize yourself and kill the jieng who wants to kill you. You have the choice.

    You are just abusing Dinka today but you better cooperate with them. If you want to talk about Equatorians, they are just foreigners. Even they don’t like you as Nuer, they have that bad hearts of being foreigners and they want to destroy South Sudan.

      Sir King,
      Jienges are just hungry squatters and drifters looking for food in Equatoria. Equatoria has made them humans, now they are dressed up in suits and have pants on. Was it not Equatorians who called them, aryan jienges? Equatorians are too intelligent to be equals with tailless monkeys and devils

        The Warap and Aweil thievery engineers are busy looting the resources of South Sudan at expenses of others. Dinka Rek are milking cows’ milks to their mouths while other Dinka sub tribes and non Dinka backgrounds are just grabbing cow’s horns. In less than 5 years of independence ,they have 5 billionaire thieves under Kiir’s tribal government. What a corruption lol!!
