AUC & China Donate To South Sudan’s Cantonment Sites

"The in-kind support, which is in the form of large, durable tents to house former combatants while they undergo cantonment, will go a long way in furthering the cantonment process..."

In a press released in Juba yesterday, Friday, Ambassador Lt. Gen. Augostino Njoroge,
Interim Chairperson of  the Reconstituted Joint Monitoring & Evaluation Commission (RJMEC) lauded African Union Commission (AUC) and China for donation to cantonment sites.

"I am delighted today to have witnessed the hand-over of in-kind support destined for different parts of South Sudan in order to facilitate the cantonment process. The materials were kindly donated by the African Union Commission (AUC).

"The in-kind support, which is in the form of large, durable tents to house former combatants while they undergo cantonment, will go a long way in furthering the cantonment process. 

"This is indeed a great step towards achieving successful cantonment, which is an essential component of the Pre-Transitional tasks.

"I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the AUC for the consignment, and I urge all other partners to offer their unwavering support towards the critical process of cantonment. It is my hope that more support will arrive in the coming days and weeks.

"I would also like to acknowledge the donation of 1500 tons of rice from the government of The People’s Republic of China which has been received. Through the Ambassador of China, I would like to extend my thanks to the government of The People’s Republic of China.

"It is my expectation that by end of this month, September, we will have attained the required number of troops, that is 50% of the Necessary Unified Forces.

"The hand-over of the AUC and Chinese consignments comes at a time when the R-ARCSS is shortly to mark the first anniversary of its signing, which is on 12 September 2018. I hope that together we will achieve much more before the end of the extended Pre-Transitional period."
