    It is good for those who are enjoying life like you Mr Jongo with electric or gas cooker. Don’t you see that it is unfair what you have said for others whose husband and children were killed in the civil war, and do not have any person to support them and help them afford an electric or gas cooker????????? your idea is not bad Sir, but before signing this bill, you guys there try to see for other alternative. Like, providing employment for those who getting money from selling charcoal, provide affortable electric and gas cooker, with affortable gas and electic price for all, not only for those who can afford it. Thanks victorianaculya@yahoo.com

        EXCUSE ME MR.JOHN!!!!!!!!

THAT IS WHY SOME OF US ARE SAYING OR DOING THINGS WITHOUT TAKING ANY CONSEDERATION OF THE PEOPLE BELOW THEM, LIKE AS IF THERE ARE NO POOR PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD.
        I KNOW WHAT YOU WHAT TO SAY, AND I KNOW WHERE YOU ARE NOW(COUNTRY). SO BETTER GO HOME, THAN WONDERING IN THE STREET DOING NOTHING.

          BY THE WAY MR. JAL, FROM WHERE DO YOU START CLEANING??? FROM THE OUTSIDE(PATIO) OR THE INSIDE??? YOU KNOW, MR.JONGO IS LIKE SOMEBODY WHO IS WEARING A SHINING SHOE WITH A PAIR OF SOCK THAT HAS HOLES.YOU KNOW WHY, BECAUSE HE DOESN’T CARE AS LONG AS PEOPLE COULD NOT SEE TORN SOCKS. I KNOW HIS BUSINESS WILL ATTRACK FOREIGN TOURISTS, AND THERE WILL BE MONEY FLOWING INTO HIS POCKET. SOME OF US SUDANESE LIKE PLACES OF INTEREST, WHILE FORGETTING THE REAL INTEREST. SO BEFORE JUMPING INTO THE OUTER FOREST,HELP THE INNER FOREST, SO THAT THEY WILL KEEP THE OUTER FOREST SAFE.
