there after reports about clashes between armed groups and the government
forces but also attacks on civilians.

At the time, the CTSAMM said the incident took place while had obtained the
needed authorisations and informed all the concerned authorities, including
the Joint Military Ceasefire Commission.

"The CTSAMM team have now successfully carried out their journey and

How can igad call it a ceasefire team for south Sudan peace while the igad
dismissed the SPLA io team member. How can u assess the SPLA io area while
their igad team is made up of govt and igad members from other ciuntries
not including SPLA ii.

you are correct Choldit, IGAD is made up of government representative only
you can not differentiate between STD IO members with that of KIIR and they
should not be allowed to visit SPLA IO areas because it is not the SPLA STD
and SPLA IG fighting there in greater Equotoria region let us be clear on
that point, we will arest them if they ever dare to come to our areas as
they do to our comrad
