South Sudan’s cantonment sites and training centres are on the verge of collapse: CTSAMVM

June 10, 2020 (JUBA) - South Sudan’s cantonment sites and training centres are on the verge of collapse due to lack of support and means, said the head of the ceasefire monitoring mechanism on Wednesday.

Maj. Gen. Teshome Gemechu Aderie made his remarks at the two-day meeting of the CTSAMVM Technical Committee in Juba on Tuesday and Wednesday 9-10 June.

Addressing the opening session on Tuesday, Aderie said the main focus of his mechanism was to monitor and verify the cantonment sites and barracks as well as training centres across the country.

Most cantonment sites are near collapse because of the lack of logistical support, he said.

There is also a critical lack of logistic support to the Training Centers and other concerns such as the lack of training syllabi at the centres and lack of clear directives on dates of graduation and funding, he added.

The pre-transitional period had been extended twice to allow the implementation of the security arrangements which should lead to the formation of one army through the cantonment sites and training. However, the lack of funds pushed the parties to form the transitional national unity government without this crucial step.

Now, the parties continue to face the same problems and in addition, they are distracted by their difference over the power-sharing at the level of the state governors and the COVID-19 crisis.

"This is of great concern for the unification of forces," however said the head of the CTSAMVM.

The co-existence of separate armies and the lack of funds may encourage some dissatisfied commanders to rebel and may push some others to use these troops in the intercommunal fighting, agree observers in Juba.

However, as it was recalled in the different UN reports, the most important that the ceasefire continues to hold despite the sporadic clashes as it was the case between the SSPDF and SPLM/A-IO in the Maiwut/Jekau area last April and the limited attacks between them and the holdout NAS mainly in Central Equatoria.

    The people who have been authorized to monitoring the contonment sites are benefit from South Sudan’s conflict. Kenyans should not be assigned or allowed to handle money for peace process because they are corrupt. The 16 million dollar was allocated to them yet, the unified forces still lacking even food for training Army. Fire Kenyan in charge.

      I do agreed with your point, those peace makers are becoming more beneficiaries to this peace, instead of making it fully but dodging it for their benefits.

    Kenya government officials are hoping that, the South Sudanese people to continue fighting each other so that they can gets paid by assuming they are the one who helped refugees from South Sudan as President Uhuru kenyatta claimed and took $45 million.

    I belief that, there will be no peaceful coexistence and there will be no any development if these two leaders are still in the lead. President Kiir Mayardit and his vice president Riek Machar Teny are the biggest problems in the country and I think South Sudan nation need another leader who can reach out united our people.

    Leave Dr. Riek Machar out of these messes. Salva Kiir is obstacles for everythings, he should stick with his 5 states instead of demanding more. He has no authorities to allocate the governors. He has no authorities to take any state from others party. He should follow and stick on what he signed in papers.

    Forget about Riek Machar Teny. Have heard his chief of staff general Simon Gatwch Dual is forming another rebellion?.

    If you have not hear about some of his generals forming their own rebellion then, keep quiet about Riek Machar. When his chief of staff announced his resignation from the SPLA I0 perhaps, your uncle Riek Teny will probably be asked to step down and from there he will go to jail time period.
