“The new phase of the CBTF will support areas such as capacity building, systems strengthening and new areas such as accountability. All we are asking is effective use of the donation”, he told the press.

He added that the support is a response to South Sudan’s financial request support to enhance management of human, organisational and financial resources.

Manibe commended the efforts of the Joint Donor Partners in supporting development of the infant nation.

“This assistance is timely as the government is tightening her belt on the implementation of austerity measures”, he said.

The CBTF is funded by seven donor countries; Canada, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
