People in South Sudan are expecting to see the "dividends of peace" now that a Transitional Government of National Unity is in place, the head of UN peacekeeping has said.

Hervé Ladsous arrived in the country's capital Juba over the weekend to assess the progress since April when the new leaders were sworn-in and to take stock of the situation of civilians living on UN bases.

In February at least 25 people were killed and 140 injured when violence erupted in Malakal at a UN compound for displaced people known as a Protection of Civilians Site (PoS).

"Critical" institutions also need to be put in place, like the joint integrated police, to ensure that law and order prevail, Mr Ladsous told Alex Agole.
