It is disappointing that ceasefire monitors are facing denial of access and intimidation in different parts of South Sudan, the chairman of the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission has said.
Festus Mogae says the limited access and freedom of movement is in Juba in Jubek State and in Yambio in Gbudwe State.
“It’s a violation of peace agreement; this deliberate and each institution in the country during the implementation of the peace agreement should work,” Mr Festus said at the opening of a JMEC meeting in Juba on Thursday.
“I want the president to issue the exclusive order to the army authority to provide access and freedom of movement to CTSAM.
“I said this because some of those local authorities said they will only allow CTSAM team if they receive pacific and writing from the president.”
All the parties to the peace agreement are attending the meeting and are yet to comment.
