    Dear Dr. Machar’s bodyguards keep up this great work. jeing believes that Machar is the only central leader who can unite Nuer and other tribes can rally together with Nuer therefore killing of Machar is the alternative to break down the emerging unity of people of South Sudan against enemy of peace. let us stay vigilance and focus so that Killing of Dr.Riek by Dinka government should not happen easily!! God bless March forces.
    God bless Machar
    God bless South Sudan.
