    Has Nuer broken away from South Sudan? What is this useless naming of places and appointment of Generals to non-existing states and counties? If Riek is joing Ethiopia with the rest of his generals, then that has to be clearly spelt out. I just see this a non- achievable dream. It is just only a scheme deployed by Riek to keep the general fighting.

    One also wonders, if Riek is for presidency to rule South Sudan, why is he naming places in Nuer vernacular? Honestly speaking, I have completely lost trust in Riek for his actions are clearly indications of a leader with low calibre; one who cannot lead a country. If he was not a person of the sort I just described, then there could have been no way to act in such a manner which is very suggestive of one being tribal.

    Nuer community should rethink about their leaders and how they need to handle problems facing them. I totally do not support the death of innocent Nuer. And so any leader using them for his personal interest should be thrown out of Nuer community.

    There is no way that one could use his community to come power and be comfortable being a leader. I tell if Slava Kiir was brought to power by Dinka, he wouldn’t have stayed this long? So Riek should find ways on how he can be brought to power by the majority. If he thinks that Nuer will do that alone, I am afraid, he will never be a president and will die as a rebel; mark those words,

    Good luck in a dream, Riek Machar.

      Awoken, you have rightly put it bro, Riek is prophet of doom and will continue giving positions not existing to his Nuer Generals to continue fighting so that they become rulers which is some thing never happen over night.

      I wonder why other tribes such as Dinkas, Equatorians and Shilluk join Riek’s doomed rebellion, Riek is only fighting to fulfill the Aspirations of his close Nuer Generals and commanders who were fighting South Sudan with Arabs, so people should watch out his games, Wise Nuer never supported him for they have foreseen his evil plans.

      99 % of the current Rebels generals plus their prophet of doom called Fool Riek are Pro-Khartoumers during the bitter war fought by South Sudan, Salva has the right to rule South Sudan regardless of his Educational Background because he ( Salva) stood firm during numerous crisis in South Sudan during the struggle while Riek proudly enjoy in Khartoum with all the current rebel commanders fighting their own South Sudanese and only shamfully returned after peace to asked for forgiveness but no more forgiveness this time till full Riek is killed, SPLA were almost defeating Arabs in Juba unfortunately fool Riek stabbed them at the back to please his god father Omar Bashir.

      Riek will never deceive us any more, he can only do that to those Pro-Khartoumers Nuer as Khartoum being their food basket,

      Riek started getting Arms and Ammunition from Khartoum at the onset of the current war, his Nuer tribe mates are being trained and armed by Khartoum, all wounded rebels are being flown for treatment in Damazin and elobeid. so South Sudanese must stand firm not to allow such skeleton to become president because people may get surprised when Riek asked Omar to invade and reunite South Sudan and Sudan as one country.

    We needs your willing to take up this position by mobilizing 50,000 youth and arm them.

      Against who? South Sudanese? I emphatically say NO! The solution is not fighting but peace so that we can vote for those who will take the country forward, not kiir and not Riek as well. Someone who would be able to win the trust and love of the people unconditionally. With my experiences, level of education, and love for South Sudan, I would bitterly and disgracefully betrayed my insight and gut if I take up arms against my brother.

      I am not part of the ego driven conflict nor do I take pride in the current government.

      Good luck taking kids to front lines claiming to be fighting Dinka! You will be finished and your areas will be left under developed!

    The juba empire is falling completelly. Which country ‘ll try to rescue gangster regime that has no regard to human life? You destroyed south sudan people, it thier turn to do the same to your organisation!!

    Delusional self talks comments is like playing a chess game by yourself. The competition ofcourse is delusional & ends with neither a honest tie, loss or a win. In reality it is also time well wasted on self projected issue contrary to.

    It’s not a surprise, that’s what normally happen to mediocre individuals and lamented by doom followers. That can’t happen to rational people like my tribe. Riek is enjoying deceiving followers of doom by creating unconstitutional states and counties though claiming democracy. does he really know what is democracy? was he elected and given powers by people to create these useless states? can anyone who is a supporter of this man tell me claimed democracy in relation to the creation of states and appointment of governors that are not even bless by parliament if you claim to have conducted separate bye election?

    No matter how long it takes, the disasterious regime that is manuplated by tribal elders will be brought down by all South Sudanese people. Their army has looted Mundri

    Ran Naath the government in Juba is not the tribal government. it’s a government by the people of the people for the people of south sudan ,looks ok opposition in so call liberated areas for example Dure Tut Dure and his boss Dr Riek Machar Ebola did is tribalism government systems to creating 8 conunties in Nuer area of Nasir and ulang and leave Bailiet and Akoka Danish people remain two conunties this is the reality of Riek Machar Ebola federal government systems is.

    Riek Machar is still believing on his dream of 1991, that he had established them, the same Nuer States and Counties that could not seen the light, because simply they were born dead.
    Even though that tribal State federalism of Riek came to be reality in the ground, let me assure the readers and supporters of Riek, what so the price will cause to Abu Shook, Lual Yak, Mozulum and Ayongdit fighters, the same scenario of 1991 resistance to Riek (SSIM) movement.
    annexing Baliet County and Akoka County to so called Sobat state will never ever be happen, it is will be like some body trying to throw a cat to river.

    @Kongor and Woken, there is say an empty stomach can’t be a political advisory. You are barking like street dogs when you are not even helping Salva Kiir militarily and politically. Riek by all mean will come to power mark my words. Don’t overlook the crisis in South Sudan.The magnitude of this crisis is too big and nobody imagined (Nuer) this crisis could have happen but with your shallow mind you think its a small thing. You will know it when it get to closer .

    Ho my God! The mentally ill Ulang County man is now messing up the Ulang, Naser, Akoka and Baliet counties. Who told you that you can become governor thru the backdoor?

      My dear, Sister Nyaluak Lual, don’t insult the nicely Person. Duet Tut Duer is nice man, if you knows Duer Tut Background is the man for his folks. Thanks Reath Koak Mut Goot from Nasir.

        Reath, since you don’t know that man, give him six months if you are a rebel on the ground. You will hate his guts. The guy is mentally ill and stupid at best. You will see very very soon. Riek Machar of Jikany coming up! am very sorry. Duer chuol Kuor was by far the best choice when compared to Duer Tut. He is a know it all hypocrite who doesnot work with people. a die hard dictator of hitler type. Try him and you will run to me.

    Cde Duer Chuol is by far the best for Sabat instead of Cde Duer Tut.I dont understand why Sobat community recall his appointment. I have known both Duers, and Cde Duel Chol is ideal, with humble and reasonable personalities. Sobat community will regret appointment of Cde Duer Tut at the end of the tunnel.
