The Secretary-General is expected to meet with President Salva Kiir Mayardit, as well as civil society leaders, especially from women’s and religious groups.

He will also visit the protection site at the UNMISS base in Tomping, Juba, where he is expected to meet with community leaders representing the thousands of civilians seeking shelter there.

Since the beginning of the current crisis, the Secretary-General has repeatedly called on the leaders to find a political solution and to put an immediate end to the violence which has led to the suffering of so many innocent civilians.


The Secretary-General is also expected to meet with UN staff and peacekeepers.

He will thank them for their dedication and service as they continue to help protect thousands of South Sudanese civilians who are at risk during the on-going crisis.

Also in the country is UN Military Adviser Lt. Gen. Maqsood Ahmed (Pakistan) who is responsible for providing military advice to the Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations.
