Juba, 21st August 2017. United Nations Missions in South Sudan or UNMISS has more work to do with the government regarding the mandate of the Regional Protection Forces or RPF, says Chief.
David Shearer said placing the RPF base near Juba International Airport is not something new part and parcel of their mandate according to the UN Security Council Resolution.
Minister of Information, Michael Makuei Lueth says the Regional force should not be based close to the airport because they have allocated land for them already.
He explains that the protection of the airport is a duty of the South Sudan’s government.
Head of the Political Science in the University of Juba, Jacob Chol cites the two parties need to go back to the mandate that the UN Security Council Resolution first developed.
He thinks, the airport should be left to the government to provide protection.
The first contingents of Rwandan troops arrived in Juba two weeks ago.
