January 13, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudanese peace partners have agreed to establish one pilot project for the troops’ cantonment and training for the future unified national army, said the SPLA-IO spokesperson Lam Paul Gabriel.

In line with the security arrangements agreed in the revitalized peace pact, the parties have to disengage troops and establish assembly points and cantonment sites within thirty (30) days of the signing.

However, three months after the peace agreement, the parties failed to launch the most important step in the transitional period arrangements due to the lack of the needed funds, as forces in cantonment shall receive non-military logistical supplies including food, shelter and access to medical care.

In an interview with Radio Miraya aired Sunday, Gabriel said the Joint Defence Board (JDB) agreed in a meeting held on 8 January to start the implementation process, despite the lack of international support, taking into account that the entire responsibility for funding of the security arrangement rests with the government.

"We cannot wait for what is not going to be there, Gabriel said alluding to the awaited international support.

"So they decided to start with a pilot project in Yei River State. They identified Moroto as a training site then the cantonment site of the SPLA-IO and SSOA in another position in Tendile located in Morob County," he added.

He further said the SSPDF and SPLA-IO will identify between 1000 to 1500 combatants for each one of them and they will be taken to Moroto for training to form the unified army of South Sudan.

Gabriel also disclosed that the JDB soon will decide to replicate this project in other areas pointing that the matter was already discussed between the parties.

According to the SPLA-IO spokesperson, the parties agreed to form 11 divisions of the army, 3 divisions for the national security and around 3 divisions for the national police including other organized units.

Further divisions will be set up in the future but this is just for the beginning now, he asserted.

The formation of the unified forces which had to start at the beginning of the pre-transitional period aims to ensure coherence and harmony among the new army and prevent clashes during the 30-month transitional period as it was the case in July 2016.

    Look,

    Cantonments here or there,all bullshit! NO occupation forces in Equatoria! Only option is that NAS forces are ones to be cantoned in Equatoria.This is their ancestral and legitimate territory, solid!Jienge forces and IOs have their designated separate cantonment locations in Bahr El Gazal and Upper Nile regions respectively!What kind of damn shit is this?Its NAS,Fedarilism or death!

      The Rhino,
      Stop being childish, which country do you think Equatoria belong? Talk about yourself, instead. We’re making a training and cantonment anywhere in the country, regardless of your negative and uselessness threat. Come and step on our feet, if you’re a really men! We’re deploying SSDF anywhere in the country whether or not village or a town. Shut up and 🏃 to refugees camp before its too

          These SSDinka Forces have no strength anymore: poor logistics, Malong and his village nyors on the run, bankrupt economy even jienges themselves are crowding refuge camps in Adjumani, Kiryadongo, Kakuma, the Dinka Forces are hoping for IO help. But most IOs here are Equatorians. Lure them, trap them and 👊.

            Take care about Mapel history when Gai Yoach and Tanginye forces were assembled for four years and end up being massacred by Dinka local forces.
            Viva is the discipline forces to provide protection in that training.

              Fellow South Sudanese let’s not advocate for war, remember in war we morn our love ones in the end. There is no happiness in war whatsoever and I am sure those advocating for war had never been to front line and will never to front line they just fought their war here on internet.

              Our plans are working out well, the more we keep jienges fighting the more they can’t develop themselves other than run 🏃 away as refugees or turn their states into grazing fields. But most importantly, is NEVER have a jienge as a friend, NEVER even dare touch their women cuz they aren’t clean enough for us. Our girls must not even waste time with these uncircumcised

            jubaone,
            IO didn’t sign any peace with NAS unless or if I am less informed about it, but, IO signed peace with the government. So, how would an IO sign peace with government that have no logistics? I am still laughing at you boy. Correct your dull IQ first before you start spreading lies again. Case closed!

              All IOs in Equatoria are Equatorians except a handful of Nuers that ran away with Riek to DRC. All Equatorians in IO are for federalism and kokora and Riek knows that. Jienges have lived on looting cuz they have no food supply lines. Many nyors are languishing as criminals and beggars in Juba unable to return to their luaks. Prostitution among your women is on rise. Who cares?

        The SSPDF and the Mathiang Anyoor are paper tigers. They only show bravery against women and unarmed men.

          Nzara Youth,
          I didn’t mentioned anything about war rather than cantonment and training centres of SSPDF within South Sudan’s territory. The ones that are always crying for war are the following babies : a) Jubaone, (b) Eastern (c) The Rhino those three ? are the ones always making noises about war in South Sudan while they are all in foreign countries.

            Babies cry for milk. Eastern makes no noise but raises PERTINANT ISSUES.....When the Khartoum peace jokes were on going, Eastern was AMONG those who raised RED flag...!EQUITY IS NEVER GIVEN; IT’S FOUGHT FOR - fighting entails death, displacement, etc. If it was not for fighting, how did the DINKA become Australian, Canadian, USA, etc citizens - thanks to DISPLACEMENT!

                Perhaps they found Karo men appealing than the filthy and stinking Jienge shitholes 😁. One would even imagine screwing a chimp than a Jienge shithole.

                  Fake Arabs said that Karo men are cowards and you can do anything with them including sleeping with them. We fought fake Arabs to protect Karo men from them.

                  Please do not be angry from me. Fake Arabs did sleep with Karo men in Juba and they came out openly to talk about it in public.

                    Don’t worry this jienge-jellaba bagi peu. More that 15% of all jienges especially in N. Bahr el Ghasal and Rumbek have jellaba blood. In Wau, they speak of "mor girschen" I asked what that was, my guide a Fertit told me, jienge women would offer themselves for "girishen" about 2 piasters. Jellaba merchants would often call these jienge women "mor gurishen" for a quickie. Ask anyone from Wau

                      Stop lying, but when Karo men are used by fake Arabs like women, is that not enough to make Karo men mad and fight fake Arabs?

                        We have evidence of bastardized jienges by Muraheleen, Darfurians and Greek merchants, even your jienge first lady is a living example. You have no prove of sodomy in Juba or in Equatoria unless ofcourse you want to allude that sodomy among jienge youths in luaks must have existed in Juba. Truth hurts but must be said.
