Graduation of unify police delay again

President Salva Kiir and his five deputies have extended the graduation of unify police Batch 22 cadet which was expect to commence on Wednesday this week.

According to the Minister of presidential Affairs, the move said to allow proper arrangements for graduation in another later date not mentioned.

On Tuesday, the Presidency discussed permanent ceasefire and transitional security arrangement, which is chapter 2 of the revitalized peace agreement.

Kiir and his Vice Presidents also agreed to accelerate the graduating of unifying forces. The process has been postponed many times, including a recent promise from the Minister of defense to graduate the force on 31th May and unify police expect to graduate this week, June 9, 2021. That deadline was not meet.

Minister of Presidential Affairs Dr. Barnaba Marial Benjamin issued a statement said the government and opposition forces would relocate to cantonment sites for further training.

The President directed his security advisor Tut Gatlluak to mobilize logistic support for unifying organized forces.

Last week, the deputy spokesperson of SPLA-IO said the graduation of forces lies in the hand of the President and his deputies.

The United Nations Mission in South Sudan Special Representative of the Secretary-General Nicholas Hayom worried that Peace Agreement implementation remains fragile and could delay the election stated in the peace agreement.
