    Congratulations let each counties holds election for now in the areas liberated. A well structure, organized community will be pruductive in improving quality of its peoples as time goes. This will have a realtime positive affects on peoples lives and will boost moral supports in a general sense. SPLM-Pagaak has a chance to demonstrate the reforms its leadership been calling for by institutionalization of good governance rooted in the democratic guiding principles of moral laws as its foundation henceth from here onward.

      it seemed that such this mentality addicted to military uniform, no one among them there who could give a military presentation or being well trained.
      bit stupid to me anyway, too many generals in the bush and others roaming around in Khartoum and Ethiopian hotels. There were no ranks like that during first SPLA/SPLM movement even, Garang was only a colonel and was the head of movement.

For how long is Riek Machar going to continues fooling his folish tribesmen, hahaha this justify this saying , you get a chair place it in hot sunshine and call a Nuer guy Kwar beer nyuur, just tell him or her you are our Boss , you will see how folish they are, they will definitely sit down in that hot sun for the seek of being a Boss…For as long as Riek can create for a positions , to them it’s a deal done, no matter what as long as they are all calls Bosses, they will always fight to the last man just because everyone is a competitive Boss. what an amazing ignorence.

    Typical South Sudan syndrome. Why be preoccupied with appointments and military titles instead of preaching peace and reforms. Another way of populating the future military with village boys? How many of those guys have been to a military college?


  6. February 24, 2015 at 11:30 am

    Our brothers from Nuer use to complaint the government in Juba was dominated by Dinka and they were represented well than any other tribe. I do not know how the call this SPLA/IO. It look like it is being dominated by one tribe the Nuer from top to the bottom.

      You are welcome to joint and leverage the differences in and of the ratio. Meaning come and make yourself count for something rather than just complaining.

    What i know so far, if you were born as a birdbrain you will remain as its,and you will never produce any thing even if you look yourself as you know something,therefore what Dr. Machar did is very affirmative if you can appreciate somebody,yes of course we can appreciate what Dr.Machar accordingly. He is very sansierly guy of all South Sudanese.

    Some of our Dinka cousins believe that this war is for Dr. Riek Machar, however I beg to disagree. Nuer were massacred in Juba in December 2013. This is the root cause of rebellion and has nothing to do with Dr. Riek’s leadership. I will provide an evident to this;when Dr. Riek was removed from the position of Vice President the Nuer did not rebel. In short blame Salva Kiir for this war as he is the one who instigated it by massacring thousands of Nuer civilians in the national capital.


    • February 25, 2015 at 1:24 pm

      Well-said Mr.Mrs.Hoiloom;

      The killing of those innocent Naath indeed had to do with all the hell that has turned insideout in our young nation.

      Riek is innocent and Kirr is partially innocent too.

      The real Jieng-killers of those innocent people are right here behind the scenes, participating in this commentary – posting under fake names!!!

      WedAljunub, Equatoriavoice, NewSouthsudan, David, and maybe Agumut above are the real undercover Jieng killers who orchestrated and ordered the Masacers in Juba in December and ever after.

      You see how jealous they are at the SPLA-IO promotions above. They have destroyed SPLM-Juba to the ground and now they are very afraid about their future. They would like to join SPLA-IO now because they could see the IO’s are succeeding by the minutes as Kiir Kingdom is collapsing by the hour in their greedy killer faces. They were too greedy to bother to do calculations before launching their buthering of the innocent civilians whose blood is now working to sanctify our young nation.

      2B continued……
