Summary

“Many key commanders instructed their forces to remain outside of the security reunification process, retain their weapons and stand ready to re-engage in active fighting,” the U.N report said.Instruction in the training camps is limited to “basic moral orientation, rather than any substantive military training,” it added.Meanwhile, vicious intercommunal fighting in parts of South Sudan has killed hundreds of people this year. A well-trained, properly provisioned security force is needed.“I am acutely aware that the peace implementation remains painfully slow and far below your expectations,” President Salva Kiir said last month.At the Toufigia police training center in Malakal, which hosts more than 3,000 people, women reported selling tea or making charcoal to find money to survive.Veronica Akiij, 41, said she decided to work as a tea lady to support her family. That threat remains, even for the trainees.At the Panyier training center in Bor, which hosts more than 1,800 people, nurse Monica Achol Agwang said she has examined many cases of sexual assault.“Some get pregnant and experience a miscarriage during training in the field,” the 38-year-old said.
