JUBA (14 Oct.)

The Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC), a body tasked
with overseeing implementation of the signed peace accord in South
Sudan, announced that it will hold a plenary meeting on 19 October in
the capital Juba.

JMEC, headed by former President Festus Mogae of Botswana, will
present its report to the board members, including representatives of
the unity government, South Sudanese stakeholders, IGAD member states,
international partners and friends of South Sudan.

In a statement seen by Radio Tamazuj, the oversight body confirmed
that the agenda will be the CTSAMM report on violations of the
ceasefire, full inclusivity and representation within the political
process, the humanitarian situation, and the deployment of the
Regional Protection Force.

Returning to Juba from meetings at the UN in New York, Chairman Mogae
said, “We are deeply concerned by the escalation of violence and
egregious violations of human rights around the country since July.
Such violations of the ceasefire are unacceptable”.

He pointed out that the peace process has hit its first major test but
they will not allow it to be derailed. The solution to the conflict in
South Sudan can only be found in dialogue and the relentless pursuit
of peaceful, inclusive, and representative governance, according to

“I shall be calling upon all parties to the agreement to return to the
table and show the leadership that the people of this country
deserve,” he said.
