WAU 10, June, 2016 [Gurtong] – The one day workshop organized by the UNMISS as part of its mandate brought together thirty senior government officials including  State ministers, advisors, heads of the State organized forces, Executive Directors, Commissioner of headquarters, two representatives from the judicial services  and representatives from the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) and (SSNPS) South Sudan national police services.

Speaking during the opening of the meeting, the UNMISS State Coordinator, Winnie Babihuga said the one day dialogue aims at exposing the participants to the processes and procedures of dialogue and consultations as the basis for building and sustaining local capacities for peace.

Bibahuga said the dialogue was to generate ways forward that will establish the region.

“Peace keeping is carried out with the understanding and trust of the host government and key players as partners and in Wau State, and Wau field office, we do this in natural trust and sharing information moving together because nobody can ever do the work on the ground except the players on the ground who are the nationals and the true national is the government of South Sudan whom you represent,” said Bibahuga.

“I want to ensure, your government and the all components of the leadership in Wau State that UNMISS is committed as partner to play together with you and work with you in the areas that are mandated in security, stabilization, protection of civilians and human rights of which you are the key player,” said the Coordinator.

The State Minister for Local Government and law Enforcement Agencies, Angelina Anthony Ubur said dialogue is important in solving any challenges that may occur.

Wau is one of the regions that have been relatively stable during the intensity of the conflict that has seen tens of thousands killed and nearly two million people displaced.
