SPLA urges gov’t & IGAD to support demilitarization of Juba

Author : | Published: Saturday, September 26, 2015

The SPLA spokesperson, Colonel Philip Aguer has urged the government and IGAD to support in the ongoing process of demilitarizing Juba.

It is part of the implementation of the peace agreement recently signed by the government and the opposition.

On Thursday, the SPLA command started a survey, to demarcate 25 Kilometers out of the capital Juba, where the army will be moved and settled during the interim period.

Yesterday the team moved to the roads along Juba – Kajokeji, Juba – Yei, Juba – Maridi and Juba – Terekeka.

But the SPLA Spokesperson Colonel Aguer says the army does not have enough resources to carry out the process.

“Definitely you will need to construct some shelters for the soldiers, you need to construct bases so now the chief of staff has launched it, but it needs the rest of the actors to come on board to support the process,” he said.

Colonel Aguer said that overseers of the ceasefire arrangement such as TROIKA should also take part in the implementation process.
