Civil Societies raise concerns over new UNMISS mandate

Author : | Published: Friday, November 7, 2014

Five Civil Society Organizations have raised concern over the lack of the provision of capacity building in the new mandate of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan.

They say capacity building would help in terms of service delivery to the people in the country if it is included.

The organizations reviewed the mandate of the mission under what they call inclusive and participatory enactment of the UNMISS mandate.

Edmond Yakani is the executive director of Community Empowerment for Progress Organization.

“The absence of the element of capacity building within UNMISS mandate is really very bad. They wish that it could be there because would have improve in terms of service delivery. So state institutions are still demanding that if people are lobbying for UNMISS mandate, the element of capacity building should be there.” He said.

He says many citizens in South Sudan are not informed about the mandate of UNMISS.

In May this year, the UN Security Council, extended the mandate of UNMISS, mainly to protect civilian in the country as a result of the on-going conflict.
