April 18, 2017 (JUBA) - The governor of Gogrial state in South Sudan, home to President Salva Kiir, has said the general security situation in the area stable, dispelling claims of sectional fighting.

Governor Gregory Deng Kuac Aduol, according to a statement from his office on Monday described security situation was "completely stable “.

He further denied any knowledge of sectional fighting between the two section of Aguok and Apuk, and described what happened in the area as an isolated individual act.

“The security situation in Gogrial state is normal. It is stable. People are going about their normal businesses. There are no major security threats. The things which are twisted and magnified in the media are isolated incidents by individuals and the law enforcement agencies are tracking them,” said the statement.

Madol Madol Aguer, the press secretary in the office of the governor also told Sudan Tribune on Monday that security situation in the area was relatively stable, downplaying sectional fight.

Aguer said the general-turned-politician was doing everything within his ability and resources to create an atmosphere of peace, love, unity and reassurance of the safety.

Governor Gregory, he says, had provided an excellent opportunity to move beyond a time marked by infighting and other distractions.

      I am sorry that you have got uncured HIV! I am glad that you’re so new into this world. Back off your making, if you was born in 90s! South Sudanese tribes were here before your mother thought of bringing you into this busy world. Therefore, take whatever you’re seeing and hearing! Too late to correct God’s creations!

        You make me laugh, because your reasoning is at par with your writing, it’s flawed. You Jienge are simply backwards, you can’t reason or function like normal people and you’re impossible to co-exist with socially.

        You people seem to thrive on brutality, violence and thuggery. Are you idiots deprived of common sense or don’t you have any feelings.

                  even a one year old child can tell from your comment that you are absolutely 1000% Dinka, but disguising your self in a Fake Nuer personality. Guys stop that illusion rule play thing, it has became as bright as a morning light.

                    I can not change to be a Dinka when God has given me my own tribe as a Nuer.But we should comment responsibly and reasonably as we should be the leaders of this Nation tomorrow.Not following up on whatever posted in the social Media to comment in it badly.Good leaders are known when they talk.Let’s preach the message of peace then war.

                      Man, you are not a Nuer and Never come even closser to be a Nuer. Unless you are one dump cursed Nuer who is the Dinka puppet just like that of LUL who would rather be a donkey of a Dinka than a Horse of the Nuer or South Sudanese people. YOu have been told not to pretend to be a Nuer when you are 1,000000% Dinka.
