Speaking during a workshop in the capital, Juba on Friday, the SDRB co-chair, Malek Ruben lauded the National Pre-transitional Committee (NPTC) for supporting activities of the board.

He said security reform is key in the implementation of the peace deal signed by South Sudan’s warring faction last year.

Malek appealed to the international community, civil society entities and religious leaders to support implementation of the peace deal.

The workshop was organized by Organization for Responsive Governance to allow members of security arrangements enlighten the public on the permanent ceasefire declared my warring parties.

In September last year, President Salva Kiir, opposition leader Riek Machar, and several opposition groups signed a revitalized peace agreement to establish a transitional government by May 12, 2019.

However, the formation of the new coalition government was extended by six months to November after the parties failed to implement key provisions of the agreement such as creating a unified army and determining the number of states.

    I agreed, without security arrangement it can not be call peace! security arrangement first, then the formation of National Government and reintegration of National army after some good months. So, this would be everlasting peace.

      South Sudanese and Sudanese in general don’t need resume’s to get jobs. You just render you certificate, diploma, or degree whether is real or bought to hiring committees; as a matter of fact, no one read it them either because someone special was given the job already either educated or not!!!
