South Sudan Ratifies Child’s Rights Treaty

Forget our Museveni, information pills http://ccalliance.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/manage.php the one we see daily at functions like weddings, more about ground breaking or at summits held at our various hotels around Kampala. Where he appears in plane shirts, and ofcourse sometime they are yellow in color, the military fatigue. Forget it

It’s like our president has learnt a thing or two about dressing for the occasion. He has dropped the buggy suits of recent and his recent trips to Europe and The Us have seen him dress up.

A fitting suit complemented by a sweater vest has become his unique dress code since 2012 every time he’s on his trips abroad. This makes him look very smart and sharp in front of the cameras, and to the numerous diplomats and businessmen he meets.  His stylist also knows that the weather in These countries can be harsh so this also helps him remain warm.

and one other thing, the loses the hat!

At ChimpReports, this reminds us of the legendary “Sunday best” we were accustomed to in high school. Everyone had his best clothes reserved for that special occasion like Sunday prayers, or when it was visiting day.

What lesson do we learn from our president? We must dress up sometimes, if we are in our homes its fine, dress the way you feel like but if you are away from your home, be it office, social events etc, you must dress up because the image you portray while away leaves a lasting impression on how people perceive you.

The South Sudan government has ratified the universal Convention on the Rights of the Child making the war torn nation the world’s 195th to criminalize the abuse of children`s rights.

The constant wars and the subsequent internal conflict in South Sudan have majorly affected children who are on many occasions conscripted to combat ranks by both sides of the conflict.

Last month, tadalafil http://contraboli.ro/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-list-invites-endpoint.php a rigorous effort by the United Nation`s body responsible for children, clinic http://cizgisactasarim.com/wp-includes/class-wp-error.php UNICEF led to the release of about 500 children from different armed groups to their families.

The UN has hailed South Sudan for ratifying the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) as the country takes a critical step towards protecting and promoting the rights of all children.

“We applaud South Sudan for ratifying the Convention on the Rights of the Child,” declared the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child in a press release issued earlier on Monday.

“We urge States that have ratified the Convention, now including South Sudan, to fulfill their obligations to respect, protect and fulfill the human rights of all children. Ratification is an important step that brings with it a commitment towards implementation.”

The child right’s treaty was adopted by the UN General Assembly on 20 November 1989 and has been ratified by 195 countries, including South Sudan, making it the most widely ratified international human rights treaty in history.

Somalia recently began the process of ratifying the Convention – a process which will be formalized once the Government deposits the instruments of ratification with the UN in New York.

This means that as of today, the United States is the only country that is yet to ratify the landmark treaty.

In its press release, the Committee also repeated its call for universal ratification of the Convention and reminded States to ratify its three Optional Protocols that address specific areas of children’s rights, namely the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography; the involvement of children in armed conflict; and enabling children to bring complaints of serious violations of their rights to the Committee.

At the same time, the Committee also welcomed South Sudan’s recent ratification of two other human rights conventions – the Convention against Torture (CAT) and the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women – and their optional protocols.
