May 22nd 2019 (Nyamilepedia) – South Sudan government said that it still need money for the implementation of the revitalized peace agreement it signed with opposition groups in September last year.

The country’s information minister, Michael Makuei also said peace delegates including from the opposition side who have been accommodated in “expensive” hotels in the capital Juba have been relocated to “cheaper” ones.

“We relocated peace delegates to cheaper hotels because there is no reason to keep people in five star hotels at a time when we need resources for implementation of the peace agreement,” Makuei said.

He said the government of South Sudan still “need[s] resources for [ the implementation of] the peace agreement.”

Early this month,  the government pledged to inject more money into the implementation of the revitalized peace agreement after the parties agreed to the extension of the pre-transitional period for up to six months.
