    Bravo to Honourable and lordship archbishop DANIEL DENG BUL YAK.
    This is indeed an unprecedented history in Dinka society,Sudan and Africa as a whole.
    Making such a profound history both in Sudan politics as well as church development squarely depend on good will, solid family and community background and most important of all the selfless desire to serve others in need.
    Building oneself or a community with excellent histories despite the face of difficulties is by far worth than building a person or a community with satanic histories.
    Thank God for giving our community such wonderful double history in Sudan.

    Dinka oyee!SouthSudan oyee!

        You are privileged for me to talk with you. As my habit i do not talk with morbid people of your kind who are coward and just uttered foolish words under the cover of ghost names like John.
        If you are really a man and not a rubbish then use your actual name when replying to people.
        Realities can not be termed as moran opinions that separate people.
        People are people but they have where they originate and as such mentioning their origin or praising them does not imply that one is separating people.
        Only fools like you may think so.
        Afterall it is not a name or tribe that can separate people but what anyone do.
        You can praise your name or tribe name more than 100 times but ultimately your downfall will be your actions against the people or community.

        Well as you said that the tribalistic will not excel in the world to come, that world of yours has not yet come.
        So please wait for it and do not interfere with my current world which i think is the beginning of the world to come.
        You also talk of mental stability and sense! Ha ha ha ha aaaaaaaaa!
        History will tell who is who???
        This is not a time to get ashamed when the truth reveal itself.
        Rather it is a time to reap whatever anyone sow during his/her life time.
        Whether that contribute anything to one’s integrity and community the time has come for the world to see and applaud.
        I was talking about Dinka,SouthSudan and Africa! Therefore, can you tell me where your tribalistic and sense come in?Ha ha ha haaaaaaaa! You must be an idiot! Let me not waste my time!

        John! Why are you embarassing yourself and our community!
        Michael’s words are too much for us to bear.
        Please if you can not answer any challenge do not start it in the first place.
        What is that all nonsenses you are displaying about him?
        There is a saying that judge a situation according to its’ merit.
        The past stuffs could not be a prove to a different situation.
        The reality is that people have already read all that you are refering them to.
        Please answer his questions or delete those nonsenses of yours.
