    The big problem in Tonj State is the governor is too weak to lead.
    Would requested to president Salve Kiir Mayardit to remove general Mathiang Magordit and ask the Tonjes.people on who they want to lead them. There are capable people who can lead and one these candidates is Abur Chol Duot. Commissioner of Alabek.county is also very smart and capable. Aleu Ayeiny Aleu is capable too.

    Yes, secondary Student will be better than Mathiang Magordit. Everyone knows that, general Mathiang Magordit was brought up by Akol Koor Kuc simple because of favoritism related to the family as it is undeniably that, general Akol Koor Kuc had marriage daughter of Mathiang Magordit. This South Sudan government is run by few relatives this is why everything went wrong direction.
