Graduation of last batch of Unified Police Forces set for Saturday

The graduation of the last batch of unified police forces from Unity State has been adjourned to Saturday.

Maj. Gen Lul Ruai Koang, spokesperson for the South Sudan People’s Defense Forces (SSPDF) said Thursday the graduation initially planned for January 13th was rescheduled for Saturday due to the visit of Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan Chairman of Sudanese Sovereign Council.

Al-burhan arrived in Juba for bi-lateral talks with President Salva Kiir.

The police officers to be graduated from Kaljaak training center in Unity State are 4,000.

 The graduation ceremony to be held in Bentiu town will be graced by the Minister of Defense and Veterans Affairs, Angelina Teny, and the Presidential Advisor on Security Affairs Tut Gatluak Manime.

The transitional government has so far graduated more than 52,000 unified forces since August from various training centers.

Under the 2018 revitalized peace agreement, the transitional unity government is supposed to graduate 83,000 unified forces to take charge of security during the ongoing transition period.

These troops include police, the army, prisons, wildlife, and intelligence.
