February 29, 2020 (JUBA) - South Sudanese Vice President Rebecca Nyandeng De Mabior and the head of the UN mission David Shearer discussed the situation of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the Protection of Civilians (POC) sites.

There are 188528 IDPs in the POCs including 115,479 in Bentiu, 27,924 in Malakal, 29,948 in Juba, 1,934 in Bor, and 13,243 in Wau according to a report released on 26 February.

The meeting discussed the return of the IPDs in the POCs across the country, said De Mabior told reporters according to a statement issued by the presidency.

They "agreed to speed up the process of the returned of the IDPs before the start of the rainy season," further said the statement.

For his part, Shearer indicated that the meeting also discussed the preparation to face the global coronavirus outbreak.

The international official further stressed the UN readiness to support the government efforts to return the displaced people to their areas of origin.

De Mabior who was nominated by the FDs group is the Vice President for Gender and Youth.

    Great, ensure that all jienge settlers, idlers, drifters and brigands in and around Nimule get out and return to their ancestral lands. Feace has come and visitation time is over. Our fellow Madis and Acholis want to return to their places but still can’t do that as long as jienges are still squatting and spreading filth in these areas. Peace4Land.

      That’s an excellent advisory...Now that feace ’has come’, jenge from Bor, Garang’s backyard, should think of home. The ir perennial fear of the murle is misplaced.

      While people talk about peace, reconciliation, and peaceful coexistence, all Jubaone talks about is tribalism and separation. What a fucking and screwed up guy the man is!

        As a runaway Abyei slave and imposter, you can be thankful that Equatoria has accommodated you "temporarily". Shoutting kurkoo...kurkoo like some irate gorilla won’t help. Get your jienge shithole together and go help your starving parents (if any at all). Otherwise the UN will feed them like zoo animals.

      I am not going anywhere, ma man. Nimule is a land of South Sudanese. Thus, it has and will continue to be inhabited by South Sudanese communities of which Jieng is part. And hey, the people Nimule aren’t bad people; only Jubaone is. They will come up with good land policies that will allow people to buy plots and build their houses; just like other countries do!
