At least two soldiers are confirmed dead at Owinykibul training centre due to malaria, says the team leader for Area Joint Monitoring Ceasefire Committee, or AJMCC, Brigadier General Cornelio Abele Lomilomoi.
 
The two soldiers were among those brought from Lowareng cantonment site of Kapoeta State.
 
Brigadier Abelle said the training centres lack health facilities to attend to patients.
 
He also cited poor weather conditions as another major challenge facing forces at the training sites.
 
“In that site of Owinykibul training center, the training is going well, but we lost two soldiers from the site of Lowareng cantonment site who were there for training. So I think they were sick so immediately from there you know very well in the military training center we have a lot of challenges, challenge number one about the medication”, he explained.
 
AJMCC team leader explained that some soldiers attending the training are not physically fit to successfully complete the training.
 
He disclosed that there has not been any screening made to determine the physical fitness of some soldiers.
 
“In the training centre, we know very well there are a lot of challenges like physical fitness. So all this thing was not all been done during the screening at the cantonment sites. There were no medical doctors. They are supposed to do that. They were hurrying. There was order given from the JDB that those people must move to the training centres without testing. They said they were going to test in the places of training”, he added.
 
The Brigadier called on peace partners to quickly intervene in delivering health services to the forces at the training centres.
 
He added that his team has forwarded the issue to the national and state governments for attention.
