Updates – The SPLM in Opposition’s Advance team has been delayed several times after many attempts to let the team set off for Juba.
Both UNMISS and IGAD have been in quandary over the logistical arrangement for the team to travel from Pagak to Juba.
UNMISS said they would only transports about 50 person out of the proposed 560 members.
IGAD in the other hands has been silent on the matter as days passed by without any statement whether to help in transportation or negotiate with UNMISS to transport the whole team.
In their part, the goverment has also been contradicting itself over ‘biographies demands’ and ‘alphabetical order’ of the said names. The goverment in one hand want the names in Alphabetical order with ranks (Makuei) while in in other hand wants a short biography of each and every member of the proposed 560 individuals (Ateny)
It’s not yet clear whether the 560 members will make it to Juba this week through logistical support from UNMISS or IGAD, and whether the goverment is comfortable and will accept the number without biographies attached on the name.
