During the reporting period a UN Agency convoy while travelling from Mingkaman to Juba was attacked and robbed by unknown armed men. The perpetrators took away personal belongings of staff members including mobile phones and money. 
Members of the Opposition still describe IGAD’s recent proposal to end the conflict as a “rough” document that does not accurately reflect the the will of the two warring parties. They believe that the mediators proposal favours president Salva Kiir instead of fairly addressing the causes of the ongoing conflict.
