C5 countries to provide in-kind support to enforce South Sudan security arrangements


JMEC Deputy Chairperson Lt. Gen. Amb. Augostino Njoroge (File Photo JMEC)
June 18, 2019 (JUBA) - The States of the African Union High-Level Ad hoc Committee for South Sudan known as (C5) will provide in-kind support to the implementation of the security arrangements particularly the costly troops’ cantonment operation.

The news was announced by the Ambassador Njoroge RJMEC Interim Chairperson during an update on the status of implementation of the revitalized peace agreement to the 7th Monthly Plenary of the Reconstituted Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (RJMEC) held in Juba on Tuesday, June 18, 2019.

"I am pleased to report that the AU C5 Ambassadors invited RJMEC and the Office of the Special Envoy to Addis to give details and provide a list of in-kind support that can be made available for cantonment?" said Njoroge in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune.

"Since then, members of the JDB, the JTSC and JMCC have been to Addis to follow up on the assistance, and we look forward to hearing the details shortly," he added.

The C5, which is composed of South Africa, Algeria, Chad, Nigeria and Rwanda, is chaired by the Head of State of the Republic of South Africa and was established by the African Union Assembly of Heads of State and Government in 2015, in order to express political support to South Sudan peace process.

Also, he urged the Security Mechanisms to open the cantonment sites and ensure that all forces report to the designated sites or barracks.

Last month, the Planetary meeting decided that the cantonment should commence by the 15th of June.

Despite the slight delay, the Kenyan seemed optimistic pointing that, the Joint Military Ceasefire Commission (JMCC) and the Joint Transitional Security Committee have moved forward with the cantonment planning process.

"The JMCC has conducted assessment visits to designated cantonment sites," he said.

He further said that the Area Joint Military Ceasefire Committee (AJMCC) and the Joint Monitoring Ceasefire Teams (JMCTs) are operational now after being formed and ended their training.

"Last Friday, the JMCC completed the training of 154 personnel here in Juba who will operate the cantonment sites. More details will be presented by the JDB and the other security mechanisms shortly".

  • 19 June 2019 07:21, by Joyuma John

    • 19 June 2019 07:55, by Midit Mitot


      JCE interest has no room any more, things are so restricted now because the whole world has found JCE tribal interest.it would be fine if AU,IGAD will implement that plan about the cantonment areas.

        Midit Mitot,

        So Nuer interest has many rooms these days? Right? You people are very confused people to deal with. Talking about the world, you people think in 2013 that UN and USA will fight for you. Did that happen? No. You lost war miserably, shut up.

        • 19 June 2019 08:33, by Midit Mitot

          South South,

          We did not, someone who have lose war could surrender to his/her enemy but will not happen to true Nuer forever, Dinka government will continues crying until it has to confess. You have brought JEM, UPDF, SPLM-N, and DRC but never succeeded, so shame on you Dinka Barelgazal!

          • 19 June 2019 09:25, by South South

            Midit Mitot,

            Nuer were with Bashir in bed thinking that they will help them to win the war in South Sudan. What happened? They lost every town and city in South Sudan including Pagak. Riek will be our second man in our country good, very good, right?

          • 19 June 2019 11:04, by Kush Natives

            Midit Mitot,
            When we tells you that government have a system that it could use to protect itself, then you always say no. Too bad to for you blame others for this war. Blaming JEM, UPDF, SPLA-N and so forth will never help you out anything. Just accept the fact that you miscalculated the consequences of the war. This country is under control and will remain under control! Whether you like or not!

            • 19 June 2019 14:20, by Midit Mitot

              Kuch Natives,

              Wululululu you people don,t feel shame for sure, yes we have leave your crook leaders to lead the country, but how is it now?

              a lot of unknowns gunmen, robbing, murders, looting, raping, closing of the embassies,student in abroad have not paid for good months etc.

              If we will not sympathize for the sake of our citizens then the worse collapsing is loading.

      • 19 June 2019 13:50, by jubaone

        C5 giving in-kind support? What is this bullshit supposed to mean? This is an indirect acknowledgment, that IGAD/AU are financially broke and want to perhaps send in their troops to forcefully get R-ARCSS implemented. They can head on to jiengelands cuz, we in Equatoria have no areas for bogus "cantonments" but "confinements" for SSDinka Forces. No inch of Equatoria for this bullshit.

        • 19 June 2019 13:58, by jubaone

          SSDinka Forces must be confined to their barracks, while IO/SSOA or whichever forces to be cantonned. There is NO need for joint cantonment and we in Equatoria dont need such bullshit. Our Equatorians in IO must be on the alert and must have joint operational strategies with NAS/PDM/SSNMC, just incase. Judge the jienge by his actions NOT words, cuz he is a congenital liar. Trust only a dead jienge

      Joyuma John,

      Innyour own world Kiir has "afforded the war?!"....

      Kiir is running around to borrow money so that he remains relevant in EAC....https://eyeradio.org/govt-borrows-to-meet-eac-financial-obligations/

      Some dinka lads have once again camped at the South Sudanese ’embassy’ because they have been forgotten..https://radiotamazuj.org/en/news/article/south-sudanese-students-occupy-embassy-i

    • 19 June 2019 15:52, by Eastern

      Kiir screwed the economy to wage war against his enemies both seen and unseen and now the man is being forced to close down his numerous ’embassies’. War is costlier to wage especially for regimes in power not the rebels....https://www.theeastafrican.co.ke/news/ea/South-Sudan-embassies/4552908-5124538-ri7mmdz/index.html

      • 19 June 2019 16:09, by jubaone

        Jienges think they can run a country as if they were running a cattle camp. NO. Even after firing the "Boom minister" Ezekiel and replacing him with yet another jienge, nothing will work. They fired the fmr BOSS Governor and replaced him with a jienge, nothing has worked. Over 90% of all SS ambassadors are jienges, nothing works. Give them SS, it wont work, just losers.

        • 19 June 2019 16:15, by Eastern


          Kiir as a military man failed the decoy test when challenged - the poor militia leader went out of his way to empty his little ’purse’ to wage war against enemies his not sure about their might. Kiir’s grand failure lays bare his cattle camp leadership acumen...!

        • 19 June 2019 16:17, by jubaone

          What non-jienges and Equatorians in particular have to do, is NOT cooperate with them. They want it their way, they have it without the rest. Full Federalism of each ethnicity taking care of itself, or complete breakup of SS is the ONLY solution. Only Equatorian, nyagat stooges and lapdogs still believe that something will evolve from nothing. NO.

        • 19 June 2019 16:23, by Eastern

          ....Kiir’s regime thinks joining the various international bodies is for free. The regime in Juba has failed to pay it’s annual fees to the EAC. South Sudan has not been paying it’s fees to many other organisations. Now the regime diehards have their children braving the cold in Zimbabwe and their numerous concubines are coming home after closure of their ineffectual ’embassies’...

          • 19 June 2019 18:45, by The Rhino


            No cantonment of jienges or nyagats in our territories!Equatoria is for NAS forces only!IGAD the useless drought company and other worthless African organizations which always pretend to solve problems in SS can go straight to hell.Shit,these organizations have been present in South Sudan for too long,what have they done?..nothing!They only promote chaos and murderers while......

            • 19 June 2019 18:51, by The Rhino


              ..benefiting from the situation.Therefore,NAS must keep up the good work and never allow anybody fool around, full stop!

            • 19 June 2019 21:28, by Eastern

              The Rhino,

              The nyagat are already starving in parts of Amadi....They better think of battering their guns for bushmeat from NAS or soon they will be wiped out and guns collected for free...!

              • 19 June 2019 23:35, by jubaone

                The party has only started. NAS, Equatorian IOs must not allow these nyors and luakjienges to freely move. Starve them, pin them down till they crawl on their knees due to hunger. Morus, Pojulus, Nyangwaras, Mundaris, Acholis, Madis, Kukus must stop cultivation so that these jienge food-thieves have nothing to rob. The power of food.

              • 19 June 2019 23:43, by The Rhino


                One dangerous thing that concerns me very much is witnessing how jienges and nyagats shamefully promote ill politics against Equatorians,same time calling Equatoria their home.Shit!Equatoria belongs to Equatorians.We’ll guarantee that this remains so for ever!We’ll collect their guns and use them against them.Now,any Equatorian youth who plays with fire and calls on fighting tribalism...

                • 19 June 2019 23:53, by The Rhino


                  ..in South Sudan,speaks of reconciliations,forgveness,healing and all other bullshit without first considering to bring criminal leaders to a Hybrid Court or any form of a Judgement,is fucking stupid, naive and dumb.Such derailed youths must immediately be discredited.They don’t respect or honor our innocent dead people.This nonsense must never be tolerated!We’ll make sure that,those....

                  • 20 June 2019 00:09, by The Rhino


                    ..who raped innocent young girls,women and murder the weak,go through slow waltz in hell and pay the ultimate price.Equatorians didn’t go to Bahr El Gazal,or Upper Nile and start terrorizing,raping,murdering,displacing the locals randomly,NO,..the reverse is true to Equatoria.Shit,the limit is reached,fuck the accommodation period,..jienges and nyagats OUT!We must take care of ourselves!

                • 20 June 2019 11:53, by jubaone

                  Thank you. How stupid must these worthless Equatorian youths be, to ask for forgiveness and reconciliation when they themselves are victims? It must be the jienge villains who raped, killed and robbed Equatorians who should ask for forgiveness. Most of these youths are "remnants" of jienge leftovers, bastards and not true Equatorians.

            • 19 June 2019 23:28, by jubaone

              Great! All along, this whole shit has been a jienge-Nuer affair, now we Equatorians through NAS/PDM/SSNMC must assert ourselves. Only a military strong Equatoria can bring peace, then jienges and nyagats believe in fighting not dialoging. Once we burn Juba, we shall smoke out all these rats

              • 20 June 2019 00:45, by The Rhino


                Frankly speaking,the government in Juba doesn’t know exactly what it’s doing.These jienges are aimless,delusional,weak and useless.The reason,..these fucking jienges have big mouths,shout lout and have no idea how to run things let alone a State.Fact is,we are studying events since 2005.Ever since,South Sudan is getting worse and out of control!

                • 20 June 2019 12:00, by jubaone

                  Stupid Equatorians talk and will do anything for SS, the jienge meanwhile is seeing SS as his property where he can enrich himself. Some Equatorians are like slaves, when the master’s house burns, he cries and says, "oh! our house" even when he doesn’t sleep on the doorsteps. Idiocy. Fuck SS, let’s focus on Equatoria. Period.

                • 20 June 2019 12:16, by jubaone

                  Eastern, Rhino,
                  If there were peace, why have the jienges in Nimule, Magwi in Juba not voluntarily returned to their luaks and give way for Madis and Acholis to return to their ancestral lands? Why haven’t Nuers not returned to their areas, even as Taban and his nyagats could facilitate their return? We want PoCs in Juba closed down and all Nuers repatriated as a sign for peace.

    • 19 June 2019 16:30, by jubaone

      It is an open secret that the international community, NGOs, investors have all written off these good-for-nothing jienges. They fear saying it openly, but they know, anything without EQUATORIA is just ordinary shithole. NAS/PDM/SSNMC should just maintain the momentum. The jienges must ultimately reject power voluntarily cuz they just cant deliver and focus more on cattle keeping.
