The decision was reached on Friday during a meeting which JMEC officials held with a team from the Swedish ministry for foreign affairs.

The team is in South Sudan as part of a study tour to several countries to understand how gender issues are integrated into the United Nation mission’s implementation of its mandate and for its partners.

They will meet representatives from the UN, government and civil society in these countries to learn from their experiences, successes, challenges and recommendations in order to improve concrete implementation of the women, peace and security agenda.

The Swedish team will also visit Afghanistan, Iraq, Mali and Liberia.

During the meeting held in the capital, Juba, JMEC chief of staff, Ambassador Berhanu Kebede and his team gave an overview of commission’s integration of gender perspectives in its oversight mandate, emphasizing the centrality of women’s participation and inclusion in the implementation of the agreement and their direct involvement in the ongoing high level revitalization forum processes.

The Swedish team comprised of Karolina Vrethem, the Deputy Director at the Department of Conflict and Humanitarian Affairs at the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Gustaf Solomonsson from the African Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs specializing in the Horn of Africa, Lotta Segerstrom from the Department for UN Policy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Hanna Carlsson, the First Secretary at the Swedish embassy in Juba.

They think, they can bully their damn selves into our country with those cheap dirty intrigues in hotels, brothels & bars of Adis Ababa. But the evils are wasting their damn times & our times to be honest. I just don’t understand what the evil corporate America, the UK, their UN, their NGOs & some of their creepy>>>

        allies in between really think they are to our country & our people? We keep informing the evil corporate America, the UK, their UN, their NGOs, their evil juus & their allies that their regime business often work for them in Middle East, West Africa, Central Africa, Southern Africa, Latin America or Eastern European countries, but right here in South Sudan>>>

            our warnings but the creeps will surely get what they are desperately shopping for in our country & against our people with a bucket full of it. There are more problems in other countries like DRC, CAR, Darfur, Southern Blue Nile, Southern Kordupan, ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, even Kenya, Burundi, Libya & Northern Nigeria. But South Sudan problems are what the hyenas are so-fixated on simply>>>>

                  Our country is a damn evil corporate America or the so-called Anglo-America colony nor are our people their damn subjects or slaves. Our great-great-great grand fathers, our fathers & our own selves have been fighting all our lives to extricate our country & other parasites from our backs. But there are some evils in the US, the UK, their UN, their NGOs, their evil juus & some of their creeps>>>
