April 6, 2015(Nyamilepedia) — One of the things that surprise me time and time again is how we think our brains work and how they actually do. Surely the agenda of Dr James Okuk wasting his time with nonsensical talks need justifiable facts. If you’re tired, your brain is not as good at filtering out distractions and focusing on a particular task. It’s also a lot less efficient at remembering connections between ideas or concepts. These are both good things when it comes to creative work, since this kind of work requires us to make new connections, be open to new ideas and think in new ways and we make a good South Sudan. Baptizing South Sudanese people with raw ideas that lack facts is ironical and insults to your academics qualifications!
Too much argumentative sometimes results to illiteracy or small minds. Keep your demeanor cool my dear. Let our debates be intellectuals’ arguments with lots of citations and connotations rather than making assumptions which are malicious in nature.
James Okuk you’re always claiming to be conceited which is not the case. Behaving in manic or manipulative way is not good to be practice in the Republic of South Sudan at this critical period of time where Citizens are divided base on ethnicity.
However, when writing something for public consumption; write articles that resonate in order to change the current situation of the republic of South Sudan rather then tribalizing your idea based on your ethnicity. Other people may look at your idea as myopic in nature if it’s doesn’t constituted the meaningful insight for public good.
Well, I will not response to all your hilarious statements because I have realized you need to read more of history before making lots of confrontations with someone who is well informed about the Nuer, shiluk and Dinka history. Sometimes is good to evaluate your facts before publication because you might be judge wrong or others might term you as someone who is not aware of the past and present events. Therefore, I have fully realized that, you need more to read history or go for another PhD so that; you will be in intellectual world.
For your information I might not tell you my background as you do in your article where you introduce yourself as well as your supervisors during your time in the University of Nairobi. My background is known to everyone globally and I have went through academics system from primary, high school, my first Bachelor Degree, first Master Degree and my second Master Degree that am concluding in may next month 2015. Know that, you are talking to informed and political Scientist as yourself. There is no where you could deceive me, may be you could deceive Stephen Par Kuol whom you said, you know better. For your information, you cannot blame the mirror when your face is distorted! I was acting as your mirror because you digress from what you were supposed to educate to your masses.
For you to deny the massacre of Nuer in Juba justify to me that; you are under some one influence in Juba or the current situation where money is nowhere to be seen forced you to write in order for small token to go in to your pocket. Interesting! Well there is a saying small minds make a lot of noise and great minds discuss facts. Please join me in discussing the facts that will magnify the growth of South Sudan as the Country.
After contextualizing your full article I realized that you were trying to equivocate all scenario about South Sudan conflict, which I can allow since I know more about what is doing on at the movement.
After going through your article, I found out that; there is no single educative points I have across rather what I got in your narratives are nonsensical arguments that lack facts and realities. What a disgrace?
I don’t know that PhD holder is good at telling lies!
Absolutely; I have well research more and more about your education background Dr James Okuk since your time when you were in Kakuma Refugee Camp and subsequently up to your time in Nairobi Kenya where you received your Doctorate in 2009 December. If you want me to mention more then I can do so, if time allows. The issue might not know you but what are are you telling the audiences, is very crucial.
While I was reading the article I realized that it was a thoughtless view that lack insight for it to be comprehensive.
Denying the massacre of the Nuer civilians in Juba is justification of mental illness in you and that is why I refer you to see Neurologist. For your information a Neurologist is a doctor who specializes in treating diseases of the nervous system. The nervous system comprises the central and peripheral nervous system. This complex system involves the spinal cord and the brain. To my own judgment some of your nervous system needs to be check in order for you to be in the same level with me.
Inventive ideas that can help to end the ongoing conflicts are what we should advocate for as South Sudanese people at this particular period of time rather than ambiguous statements!
More interestingly, during the summer of 2010, the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA), in an attempt to disarm the tribe and stop a local Shilluk rebellion, burned a number of villages and killed an untold number of civilians in South Sudan’s Shilluk Kingdom. Over 10,000 people were displaced in the midst of the rainy season and sent fleeing into the forest, often naked, without bedding, shelter or food, with many children dying from hunger and cold. What is that Dr James Okuk? Your people were massacre and you still kneel down in front of terrorists in Juba. Very regrettable! Oh my God!
More so, violence has started again in April 2011 with a SPLA crackdown on rebel controlled regions. Shilluk and well as Nuba are the alleged victims, who are you to deny the facts on ground?
Last week your top General and thirteen officers were massacre and you are still acknowledging the terrorists regime in Juba. Am very sorry for some PhDs holders in South Sudan, I doubt the professors who approved your Thesis.
Why confusing the Land history Dr. James Okuk?
The Nuer live mostly in Southern Sudan, in the east Upper Nile Province around the junction of the Nile River with the Bahr el Ghazal and Sobat Rivers, and extending up the Sobat across the Ethiopian border. Which land was taken by force by Nuer from Shiluk? Could you compare Nuer with Shiluk politically, militarily, intellectually or physically?
In history Archeologists indicate that the introduction of cattle in this area is related to the development of the distinct peoples the Nuer are descended from. Oral traditions indicate that the Nuer have moved east of the Nile River only during the last 200 years.
They began an especially active migration about the mid 1800s. As they moved gradually east, they pushed the Anuak farther east into Ethiopia. During this period many Dinka people were incorporated into the Nuer community.
Anyway, impulsive Comments deserves to be avoided otherwise people will assumed that your PhD was given to you through shortcuts.
