Delay of borders’ body will gravelly impact South Sudan peace implementation: report


January 19, 2019 (JUBA) - The National Democratic Movement (NDM) chaired by Lam Akol warned the IGAD against the delay registered in the formation of the Independent Boundaries Commission (IBC) pointing it may gravelly impact the peace implementation process in South Sudan.

On the occasion of the end of the fourth month into the eight-month Pre-Transitional Period, the NDM issued a seven-page report, seen by Sudan Tribune, to assess the enforcement of the peace pact that was signed on 12 September.

In the cover letter sent with the report, the NDM leader Lam Akol said its "objective is to help explore ways and means of accelerating the implementation process".

The report which explores the slow pace of the implementation process in all the chapters of the peace agreement expressed special concern over the IGAD failure to form the IBC as it had to be set up within two weeks after the signing of the peace pact.

"It is puzzling why IGAD could fail to form the IBC up to this time; half time within the Pre-Transition," read the report, after pointing it was "arguably the most contentious issue during the peace talks".

During the peace talks, the opposition groups vehemently rejected the 32-state federal system unilaterally established by President Salva Kiir.

One of their grievances that the borders of 32 states, which are established on tribal basis, violate the tribal boundaries of South Sudan in 1956 when Sudan got its independence.

Many accused Juba government of giving the lands of their tribes to the Dinka tribe of President Kiir.

"The consequences of not settling the controversial issue of the 32 States on R-ARCSS before the onset of the Transitional Period are too grave to be ignored," said the NDM.

During the peace talks, all the parties agreed that IBC must end its task within the 8-month Pre-Transitional period.

The IBC, which will be chaired by a foreigner, has to consider the number of States of the Republic of South Sudan, their boundaries, the composition and restructuring of the Council of States and to make recommendations on the same.

The Commission "shall complete its work within a maximum of ninety (90) days that shall not be extendable," provides the revitalized peace agreement.

        Its true, IGAD will never done any good things for Southern Sudanes. They only wanted us to continues with War. In fact, if the borderies are not sorted out properly, what will you thinks would prevent the tribal war among the different communities? A partial peace is like a rotten onion

          First, there is nothing called Southern Sudanese anymore. Southern Sudan was a part of Sudan. Today, we have South Sudanese. Second, you are the only Nuer who still very confused and still releasing irresponsible statements. All Nuers are now for peace.

We’re in control of the country including you in exile, so your contributions to South Sudan is not valid, therefore, we treat it as trash. We created 32 states, so we know where the borders.

            That is how the Arabs encroached into Southern Egypt and today’s North Sudan.

You expand your intellectual capabilities by engaging with fellow Equatorians not lowering yourself with jienge numbskulls like South South or Bush Natives Niggas who are refugee cowards in Kenya or Uganda. They have nowhere to go. Losers.

                          Equatorians are good hunters. But this time they are hunting some ugly animals called Jieng. The Murahaleen have succeeded in taming them into slavery.

                        Jienges don’t want peace, they fear it. With peace, they will be required to return to their junk states amidst anarchy, chaos and hunger. These lazy and lawless miscreants are used to being refugees cuz at least they get free food and housing and don’t have to work. See their states. They are accountable to none and have no sense of responsibility. Just savages.

      Each ethnicities must fight for their ancestral lands and political space. We don’t care how many states will emerge, but let jienges get to their junk states and develop them instead of claiming lands of others. Lam Akol must stop talking and urge Collos to fight. The same with Equatorians. This IBC is bullshit and only once jienge settlers and vagabonds are out, then peace.

We must get 50-100 well armed Madis and Acholis who will do the same un Nimule and Parajok. This would send these jienge miscreants scampering back to Jonglei
