The German ambassador to South Sudan says his government has donated $2 million to the UN mission in South Sudan to train the Joint Integrated Police under the peace agreement.

According to the agreement, the 5,400-strong unit will be deployed to provide security in Juba and other towns that were affected by the December 2013 conflict.

“These are the cities mentioned in the peace agreement which should be demilitarized. And the police forces should take over the security of these cities,” Ambassador Johannes Lehne said.

3,000 personnel will be deployed in Juba from both the government and the SPLM-IO and 400 in each of the towns affected by violence.

He said the money that has been availed will be used for the training that was behind schedule.

“Our program is meant to help in the implementation of these security arrangements under the peace agreement,” Amb Lehne confirmed.

The training will begin at Rajaf training center as soon as possible.
