Last week, Troika has expressed concern over “increased levels of violence across South Sudan” which comes as a result of the “vacuum created by the” absence of state governments.

The SPLM and and the opposition groups have agreed on the allocations of states, the Minister of Presidential Affairs has announced.

According to the deal arrived on Wednesday afternoon, the SPLM will appoint governors for six states, namely: Warrap, Lakes, Northern Bahr el Ghazal, Eastern Equatoria, Central Equatoria, and Unity.

SPLA-IO has taken Western Equatoria, Western Bahr el Ghazal and Upper Nile. And SSOA will appoint the governor for Jonglei.

The deal comes after months of disagreement, which the diplomatic community and civil society said had led to escalation of inter-communal conflicts in some states due to absence of governors.

” Matters pertaining to the composition of the executive and the legislative branches of the [state] governments shall be discussed and agreed to at the later date,” Nhial Deng Nhial told the media.

There have been deadly ethnic and inter-clan clashes in Jonglei, Warrap, Lakes and Unity states.
