Gov’t fails to honor parts of its pact with Yau Yau

Author : | Published: Sunday, May 31, 2015

The Administrator of Greater Pibor says some of the provisions of an agreement he signed with the government last year have not been implemented.

General David Yau Yau says this includes budget for service delivery to the people of the area.

A year ago, General David Yau Yau, the leader of the Cobra-Faction, signed a peace agreement with the government.

This ended three- years of conflict. The president offered amnesty to General Yau Yau, allowing for creation of the greater Pibor Administrative area.

Genral Yau Yau says seven counties were created. Commissioners and administrators were appointed.

But he says the government has failed to fulfill other promises.

“We’re supposed to have our own budget as for operation because you cannot run an entity without a budget,” he said.

“We were supposed also to have some of our guys represented in the diplomatic mission positions; that one is also still undergoing the process.”

General Yau Yau was addressing a public lecture at the University of Juba yesterday.
