A senior SPLM-IO Official Confirmed the Departure of the Advance Team to Juba, South Sudan


NAIROBI – According to our correspondence on the ground engaged in following through with the advance team’s departure to Juba, it is quite clear that arrival of the first team would be witnessed on December 21, 2015.  Although the process has been delayed for a number of reasons known to the government of Juba, a clearance for the departure of the first team is set to ensure that the August 26, 2015, peace agreement is implemented.

This message coincided with a letter written to David Deng Athorbie, the Finance Minister of South Sudan, by Gen. Taban Deng Gai, Chief Negotiator and Leader of the Advance Team for the IO confirming the arrival of 150 people on the said date.

The arrival of the Pre-advance Team would mean possible implementation, paving ways for further discussed transformation of the important organs across the government institutions.  The implementation will give President Kiir a leverage to still remain as the incumbent and Dr. Machar, the first vice president in a country torn apart by the bloodiest civil war fitting the Juba Government under President Kiir against the Pagak Government under the first Vice President Designate, Dr. Machar.

The violence claimed more than 100,000, and displaced more 2.2 million people to neighboring countries.  Also hundreds of thousands have been trapped in UNMISS Camps across the country for the last 2 years.
