Ceasefire monitors call for donor funding to enable them undertake their work

The Chairperson for Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring and Verification Mechanism (CTSAMVM), Maj.Gen Hailu Gonfa Eddosa on Tuesday called for improved funding from donors to enable them carry out their tasks ahead of the upcoming elections.

“CTSAMVM relies wholly and fully on donor funding and appreciates the donors for their support. However, CTSAMVM still continues to encounter challenges that affect the effectiveness of our monitoring process which is critical as we approach the election period,” said Eddosa during CTSAMVM board meeting at Beijing Hotel in Juba.

CTSAMVM said urgent donor funding will enable them to monitor the Permanent Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements (PCTSA) mechanism.

In addition, Eddosa revealed that CTSAMVM has not registered verified clashes between the parties signatory to the agreement since March 2024.

He commended all the parties to the 2018 revitalized peace agreement for holding the ceasefire.

Eddosa also disclosed that commanders of the various cantonment sites and training centers have since March 2024, continued to report lack of food and medicines in the cantonment sites and training centers.

“CTSAMVM with profound regard to the road map of the extended transitional period urges the Revitalized Transitional Government of National Unity, to quickly implement the remaining unimplemented tasks especially the security arrangements,” he said.

South Sudan is supposed to train and graduate a total of 83,000 unified forces, but currently only 4,000 out of the 53,000 forces graduated in the first batch have been fully redeployed.
