November 27, 2019 (JUBA) – South Sudan National Security Service recruited a new force of at least 10,000 fighters from communities in the former Warrap State, contrary to provisions of the peace agreement, a United Nations Panel of Experts said in a new report to the Security Council.

The Panel, on Friday, said fighters recruited from Gogrial, Tonj and Twic States, have been training in Tonj South County since August.

“In parallel, the Panel is following indications that National Security Service forces have received additional training in infantry and urban warfare, outside the arrangements of the Agreement, for the necessary unified forces, at the National Security Service facilities in Luri, 40 km west of Juba,” partly reads the report.

The Panel said South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir has exhibited no intention of relinquishing key security powers retained by the National Security Service, which has continued to operate unchecked.

“As the Panel has previously reported, the Director General of the Internal Security Bureau, Lieutenant General Akol Koor Kuc, has continued to suppress dissenting voices with no regard for legal due process,” it noted.

A civil war broke out in South Sudan in December 2013 when President Kiir accused his former deputy Riek Machar of an attempted coup.

In September 2018, the warring factions signed a revitalized peace agreement to resolve the conflict, which killed nearly 400,000 people and displaced millions.

The Panel of Experts, however, told the Security Council that the South Sudanese government has been unwilling to allocate resources to fully implement the pre-transitional provisions, especially on the security arrangements.

“The Government has not met its obligations to disburse sufficient funds for the implementation of the peace process, and the National Pre-transitional Council has not managed its funds transparently,” further notes the report.

It added, “Despite the pledge made by the Government in May 2019 to disburse $100 million for the peace process, which already represents a significant reduction from an initial budget of $285 million, it has allocated only about $35 million”.

Meanwhile, South Sudan government has been accused of allegedly pursuing a strategy to split and co-opt the leadership of both signatories and non-signatories to the peace agreement.

The Panel said it corroborated the fact that in Maiwut State, the Government has taken advantage of an internal conflict within the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-Army in Opposition (SPLM-IO) to weaken the latter’s power base.

“The Government has also attempted to weaken the new alliance of non-signatories, the South Sudan Opposition Movements Alliance, while continuing to conduct a military offensive on the ground against one of its members, the National Salvation Front,” it noted, adding “The Government risks undermining the ceasefire with this strategy".

Similarly, South Sudan government’s commitment to the full implementation of the peace agreement has been doubted, citing its move to co-opt opposition signatories into the Revitalized Transitional Government of National Unity (R-TGoNU).

This strategy, the Panel’s report observed, proved successful with most of the South Sudan Opposition Alliance (SSOA), which de facto has split into multiple groups.

On November 7, President Kiir and Machar agreed to delay key benchmarks in the peace agreement by 100 days. The delay in forming a national unity government on November 12 came amid concerns from the Machar-led group that the security arrangements were incomplete.

    This is very bias report. it doesn’t mention what Dr. Woungkel is doing. Dr. Woungkel is recruiting too even in PoCs, is that a good thing? No, then why don’t you mention it here. Government of South Sudan has full right to recruitment like any other country in the world.

We have a very strong army to protect interests of South Sudan, we are like US, UK, like Germany, like China, these countries have very strong armies. Shut up your dirty mouth and listen to us, Kiir, the One and Only

          Obtaining a bachelors degree in 6 months doesn’t make you a scientist. If jienges don’t even have a fighter plane ? let alone having a single fighter pilot, how then can you be the equal of US, UK or Germany? Jienges loath mathematics and arithmetics except when counting stolen monies, cows or women. Wasaka jienge kaffir.

      Kiir thinks he is so wise than others. Conversely, South Sudanese generally so be blamed for keeping quiet for so long. Though these unusable activates are just inaudible about it. Otherwise, I and sons are getting equipped to see what to do.

      BREAKING NEWS. IGAD has been forced by US, EU to release Riek unconditionally till Friday next week. Things are rolling on well. Riek should just stick to his demands uncompromisingly. Kokora, security reforms, number of states and boundaries, $100m released otherwise this kiirminal and his jienge kuffar must pay for their sins.

        Don’t get too excited, you’re talking about dog Riek Machar. Stupid Kiir can implement your dreams with a vote or said peace will collapse come February 2020, one way or other. Outsiders will just be watching. As for recruitment in Gogrial, it’s good thing. I would wish coward Kuol and mouthy Makuei do same in Bor. Times these warmongers finish what they had started.

          Jienges have been arming themselves ever since. All the small arms confiscated from non-jienges were all redistributed to jienges only. That is why they were able to massacre innocent civilians. Come jienge Bors (water carriers) I have no fear for them. Juba must burn and all cockroaches smoked out. Now we have the guns as well. Show time.

        The United States and EU are re-evaluating Kiir’s tribal gov’t very well so far.They should keep on re-evaluating that Dinka moron thoroughly from the outside while we re-evaluate his malnourished fighters on the ground from the inside.The international community is hitting the right tone, no doubt!I’m not a big fan of Machar but honestly,his detentions first in South Africa and now in..

      Don’t worry about 10,000 jienge kaffirs who have been hastily drafted to fight. After all, their low lives really don’t matter. Our civilians must give way so that we do it man-to-man. Emaciated jienges, outstretched logistics, low morale, these freebooters are canon fodder. The more their youths get killed or maimed, the more their families become impoverished. Great strategy.

        I am not worried at all; I am in control. The US won’t fight the regime using arms - as that would be akin to a human being killing a rat using RPG! The regime will be weakened by clipping its growing wings using a number of SOFT BOMBS!

        NAS is simply hunting down some ape looking jienges in our bushes. Perhaps they need some "bush meat". I’d advise them not to even taste 👅 it, it stinks. Kill them cuz they will eat all our field crops.

          Great. If the Nuer IOs can’t beat these jienges from one end, let them just keep a low profile and let Equatorians alone face jienges head on. It is show time. Either them or us. Case closed.

    There you go. This is about the best thing to happen; recruiting 10,000 jienge kaffirs against agreed peace deal with IO. Now the message is clear to all non-jienges. It’s your choice: kill or get killed. The cockroaches are coming to eat anything and everything alive. It’s show time.
