Sources in Juba reported that the South Sudan National Pre-Transitional Committee (NPTC)  informed hotels through a letter from the head of the Committee for accommodation, Dhieu Mathok Diing, of the decision to terminate hosting the opposition delegates.

SSOA spokesperson, Stephen Lual expressed concerns regarding what happens next to the opposition delegations who are in Juba supposedly to follow up the implementation of the Revitalised Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS).

He further said that the move would disrupt the implementation of the peace agreement and reflect negatively on mutual trust.

The government and the signatories to the R-ARCSS agreed to extend the Pre-Transitional Period for six more months in meetings conducted in Addis Ababa between the 2nd and the 3rd of May 2019.  The extension is required to give more time for the implementation of the security arrangements, the formation of the national army,  and to tackle the issue of the 32 new States.
