The Juba Peace Agreement was signed on October 3, 2020 by Sudan’s transitional government and many of the Country’s main warring factions in the South Sudan capital Juba.
The agreement, which is extremely multifaceted, shelters variety of areas, including governance, security and transitional Justice and is envisioned to enlighten the upcoming constitutional negotiation process.
“That was a historic agreement. It was a step in the right direction. There is nothing wrong with it.” He said “it has been incorporated into the constitution and brought the signatories, especially the armed movement, into the transitional government,” Manime was quoted in some media reports.
The Kiir’s advisor stated that the agreement is now guiding the Country until elections are held.
