Pay cuts push two journalists from radio posts in Lakes


By Manyang Mayom

March 6, 2009 (RUMBEK) — Two local journalists of Radio Rumbek FM-98 have submitted their resignation letters to Lakes state government following a pay cut, said the head of the Arabic desk.

As Lakes state government staff finally received their salaries of January after a long wait, other staffs in Lakes state were cut, including the two journalists from the state-owned Radio Rumbek.

“The downsizing of staffs targets only people who have no relative in the government senior positions," said Achinkoc Henry Deng, the news presenter for FM-98 Arabic, who was demoted from grade 8 to 10.

The head of the Arabic desk, Motar Omer Al-Bushari, resigned from his position last week saying that the state government is no longer loyal to its staffs. Moreover, in the English desk, Aru Chirilo has already deposited his resignation letter to the administration department of the Information Ministry on Friday afternoon.

Salaries are daily delayed and there is reportedly a lack of respect between senior and junior staffs. As a result of the downsizing in Lakes state, several staffs in the senior positions also got demoted from their respective position which they have been holding since 2005.

In the process of downsizing, Gordon Nhial from the department of Culture has been demoted from grade 5 to grade 10 while Aru Chirio Majok from the English desk of Radio FM-98 has been demoted from grade 7 to 10.

More staffs are out crying of heavy loan behind them in the market and salaries are hardly enough to afford their life. Additional staffs are seeking to submit in their resignation letters if the state government officials do not change their minds to normalize the issue of downsizing the workforce. Staffs demanded a free and fair procedure for downsizing employees according to qualifications and not on tribal lines.

Southern Sudan faces a budget crisis due to declining oil revenues and delays in receiving the South’s share of oil revenue from with the Khartoum government, as arranged in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.

    God look at this dogs they pursuit money instead of developing their states. Why don’t you just work to make your area look better rather than putting your big hearts on money. Sorry junglese ! ! ! you will realy end up behind pounds or $$$$$$$ money and food lovers will always contribute when there is enough payment. See in Equatoria teachers and doctors are just working like volunteers, they aim to make development not wondering after $$$ but for mad community and lost tribe like yourselves will just fool after pounds and this will never bring any development to your villages or jungle states. Please think twice in this decision before taking the right route for yourself and your future.

      Mr Small Logic,

      It seems to me like you are crying. I believe that without people that you called junglese Dinkas, the teachers from Equatoria cannot teachs at all. Because the people whom called junglese Dinkas are the people who open the eyes of Equatorian people, otherwise the Arabs people could fuck all the Equatorian men until they give birth to Mohammed, Abdullasis, Bashir, Taha, Hassan, Turabi, Nimeiri, Sadiq and many other Arabs apart from Equatorian women whom I’m not going to talk about.

      You should better congratulated your super master so call Dinkas who helped the Equatorian men from being fucked and suffered hardly in hand of the Arabs people since their staying in Juba.

      Last year 2008, one of the Equatorian man was caught in the house being fucked by one of the Bangladesh person from peace keeping force in Juba, just because of some portion share of $$$$$$$$ being paid by the Bangladesh peace keeper to have sex with Equatorian man. This is because that the Equatorian men are addicted and being used by the Arabs people and they cannot stayed without Arab person around them. So, afterward, one of the Dinka man from the SPLA come and rescued the Equatorian man when he heard the sound very loudly in the house. Then, the man came and sent the Bangladesh person to the custody in Juba.

      Now I hope you can learn that Dinkas people whom you called junglese people, are the pillar and foundation of all the communities in Southern Sudan. Dinkas people are not entitled to such thing being done by the Equatorian men. If it is happened to Dinka person, then you can hear that it is one of the Dinkas person who fucked the Arab instead of Dinka person being consumated by the Arab or a Bangladesh person like what happened to Equatorian man.

      Mr Logic Boy, if you are a good guesture person, would you please chose one of the person who was fucked in Juba by a Bangladesh peace keeper last year of 2008? Here are they names of the people: (a) Lado (B) Wani (C)Gatwech (D) Bari.
      How come that a man should have sex with another man? I really believe one of the thing that was told to me by one of the Equatorian guy that 97% of the Equatorian people are gay. That is absolutely true and I agree with it.

      This is why I’m proud of because I’m from Dinka and we don’t practice that in our culture except only Equatorian and Nuer people. Mr Logic Boy, instead of abusing Dinkas as junglese people, why don’t you go and sustained this situation in Equatoria?. That is why Dinkas people whom you called junglese fight with the Arabs to stop misusing of Equatorian men as their wives, instead. Shame on Mr Logic Boy, of having no knowledge about Dinkas people!!!!!!.

        Deng or dirty for dinkas

        Your really suffering but still you don’t realised. Your dinkas skinny hips are full of HIV varuis been passed to you by Uganda and DRC ladies here in the streets of Juba, just ask the health minister one day to carry a general teste of HIV, you will find that 99.9 % of those idiot junglese who are roaming in Juba (normal on the days but thevies at night) are all affected with HIV. My friend let me remind you that in Equatoria there might be just 1 % of ISlamic and particularly Azende. But lets go to jungle states of bor, rumbek, Upper nile and etc, there are 75% Islamic, 20 Christians and 10 triditonals.

        It might sound like there is no prove, but i can prove it to you that your the fool community in Sudan who enagage in barter trade, you sold your girls to arabs just because of food thesame you sell to the murle and nuers. But for us as wise people of Greater Equatoria we will never buy those smelling girls of dinkas and junglese in particular. Some smell like they had shower since SPLA/M 1983. Am sorry that your community and lost tribe in particualr will one day surrender thamselves to arabs to enjoy the slavery company of being sexually abuse just because of a single bread. We dig for ourselves and this is why you never see any of Equatorian lady or man begging something from someone. But you fool, you will always survive through your anus and rotten virginas. Continue selling your bodies because of food, but one day when the arabs have came to realise that your carrying HIV you will all die like chickens during bird flu.

        I will not waste my time to talk about your fake statement that a man was sexually abused by stranger, it is your own culture of being abused by arabs. I think that might be yourself or one of your community member in Bor and your trying to make it apprear on someone not yourselves. My question is, have you ever been to Khartoum, if yes tell me about the situation of dinkas (junglese) in Khartoum. If not, bad lack that your still on the bottom of your history. The number of donkeys in Khartoum has been reduced to 50% because the other 50% has been taken by your dinkas, and if they were not given that chance i hope that by this time there is no single creature from dinkas in Khartoum.

        It is good that you better take the Equatorian culture of digging for yourself and your family so that your people will stop selling themselves because of food. Your own problem with Bari or whoever as you have mentioned in your comment might be a different case. If your jealousy of Juba city because it is located in their land than you better understand that effort is the way not wondering after food and money. This is what they have done to make Juba a better city to live, but been share by pigs of jungle who does not have sanitation. Are you aware of ERM? if yes good, if no bad lack because ERM will one day make you to be in your home and contribute to make development not roaming in Juba at night looking for leftover foods.

          Hey Mr Cockroach or Logic Girl,

          Why are you crying my brother? I know that I had touch your feel, but I’m sorry about that. I thought that I’m trying to teach you because your master so call Augustino Deng, from Dinkas Ruweng Community of Abiemnom, wants you to learns about the Dinkas’ innovations theories and that is why I’m here to give you some of the enquiries with which you can learned and put them in your finger-tips.

          In fact, about the guy from Equatorian who was fucked last year of 2008, was true. It is not a joke in reality. But, according to my notion, I thought that you will understand it very initiatively as an advise for you guys from Equatorian community or Mr Big Logic Girl from Equatoria that this practice is not allow in Southern Sudan at all. I haven’t seen a man from Southern Sudan being fucked like the guy from Equatorian Region who was fucked hardly by a Bangladesh man just for the matter of $150. This is very rediculous and shameless at all for a man from an Equatorian Region to have sex with another man. How did he enjoyed, Mr Big Logic Girl from Equatoria?

          That is why I said that Dinkas are the most precious or wisely people in Southern Sudan. They do a very precisely things in term of the benefits of the other communities who practiced a devil things like the Equatorian guy from Mr Big Logic Girl tribe who sale himself to be fucked for the matter of $150 as well as Nuer people who are just only being deceived by Arabs people with the matter of "Gargoch - Nuer language"- In English language, a baked bread mixed with sugar and some other food condiments plus other stuffs and so on.

          Mr Big Logic Girl, there is know way at all to denied the the evidence which happened in Equatoria Region. It is something true that the guy from Equatoria was really fucked by Bangladesh man from a peace keeping force. So, what are you complaining about Mr Big Logic Girl? Your community so call Equatoria and Nuer community have damaged the name of the Southern Sudan.

          Mr Big Logic Girl, it is better for you to praise your master Dinkas people who work hard for you in order to "emancipated" Equatorian people and Nuer people from the hand of Arabs people, otherwise both of you could not have a foundation at all. I’m glad that even if you bark like a dog to the Dinkas people, then we actually know the way how we are going to handled you. You are just people who are easy to be deceived with simple things especially the "Nuer people".

          By the way, what should Dinkas communities have to do so that these two communities so call Equatoria and Nuer have to adapted the cultural behaviours of Dinkas Communities?

        Mr. Augustino Deng

        Although I completely disagree with what Mr.Logic boy is preaching over this website, I found myself compelling to respond to the primitive bush like insults you have uttered in the name of Dinka, a tribe that did not sit and elect you as its spokesman.

        For your information, homosexuality is a taboo all over Southern Sudan, to explode a big lie that it’s being praticed in Equatoria is a sheer out-burst of your mental retardation.

        I’m living in Juba and I know it better than your dead grand grand parents, and I can swear that nothing has ever happened as you have put it. The case of Bangladish peace keeping elements was concerning under-aged school girls who were exploited by these soldiers. this particular case was well investigated and documented by both CES police and Ministry of gender, social wellfare, and religious affairs-GOSS. Every body can get the full account from these sources if he wishes. You don’t need to lie in the broad day light Mr.lair.

        Equatorians were living as free men even during difficult times in both governmnet controlled areas and the so called liberated areas by then. No body has freed anybody Mr. lair, we have all taken arms and liberated Rumbek, Yirol, Yie, Kajokeji, Kopeota, and others.

        And when SPLA entered Juba, it didn’t find Men being fucked by Jallaba Mr. Lair. By the way, it is the first time I hear from you that men can give birth, is it a phenomenon in your community Mr. lair? can your father give birth if he is vigorously screwed?

        • 9 March 2009 04:37, by AUGUSTINO DENG

          Hey Mr Pills,

          I know that the true evidence most of the time affect the feeling of any gender as a whole. This is true by the way that the Equatorian man was really fucked by a Bangladesh man from a peace keeping force. I hope even if you are in Juba, you cannot tell it exactly the way it was since it is true. I know that it is "excoriating" or Burning your heart very tremendously, but I’m sorry why it happened in that way.

          Secondly, I want to assured you that don’t generalized homosexual as something that is normally done by everybody in Southern Sudan. It is better for you to said that homosexual is normally practiced in Equatorian Region as a part of taboo of the Equatorian cultural concerns.

          To tell you the fact, homosexual is not something practiced tremendously like the way you do it in Equatorian Region. I can tell you that it doesn’t happened in Dinkas’cultural norm and it is true . Dinkas are the most people in Southern Sudan with the fact that they can withstand or resisted anything in the eye of enemy. Dinkas are not easy "goers"- somebody who is just only rely on someone for prostitution matter, sell himself or herself like the one of Equatorian who was fucked last year of 2008.

          I don’t see why a lot of people in Southern Sudan tribes spread chaos on Dinkas most of the time instead of articulating themselves together with the Dinkas. Mr Pills, I indeed know that there is know any tribe in Southern Sudan like Dinkas people in which most of the people dislike. Without Dinkas people in this Southern Sudan, some men from Equatorian community or from Nuer community could give birth to Mohammed, Abdullasis, Nimeiri, Ngundeng, Gatwech, Nur Hassan and Turabi as well as Omar Bashir and Taha just to mention few for you. But, thank God that he created Dinkas people to be the mediators and shields of everyone who is being undermined by some of the other circumstances.

          Lastly, I want to tell you that the incident about the Equatorian man who was fucked by a Bangladesh man in Juba, is absolutely true know matter of what. It happened for sure that one of the Dinka guy from "Abushok Battalion" in SPLA run to rescued the man in the compound were the Bangladesh peace keeping force were settled. According to the analysis or investigation from Southern Sudan Police in Juba, it is true that the man from Equatoria was given $150 by the Bangladesh man peace keeper in order to have sex with him. Now, Mr Pills, how can your tribe so call Equatorian people compared themselves with a vigorous community so call Dinkas or Monyjang? That is why Dinkas people called you "Dor" people. Because you are easy to associate yourselves with anything.

          What kind of mess is this from Equatorian community?

          • 9 March 2009 14:00, by pills


            I’m really sorry because you insisted to live on your lies. I told you I was one of the people who followed that case from A to Z and the full detail is available with the Ministry of gender, social welfare, and religious affairs and CES police not SSP as you have claimed. I’ve seen the girls physically. You can even refer to the comment of president Kiir on the issue in which he said our legal system should not compromise on the future of our daughters (not men).

            I still insist that you are just a self proclaimed unelected Dinka spokesman. And I’m not a tribalist to entertain you in your tribal propaganda. For me Dinka is an important tribe just like any other tribe without which Southern Sudan will never be complete. It’s my mission on this website to see that people like you and logic boy who are destructive to the aspiration of our people are educated and get reformed. Therefore, I don’t give shit to your inferiority complex and tribal argument. For me an educated and intellectual persons always discuss ideas unlike primitive and ilitrates who always discuss people and tribes.

            Wake up my friend! Southern Sudan will never be the same if it belongs to Dinkas only. There is nothing called super tribe, this is childish Mr.Deng, I regret you are reducing your self to this extent. May be you are affected by superman movies, but there is no such things existing in actual life!!

            By the way you didn’t answer my last question: Can men in your community get pregnant? can your father give birth if he is vigorously fucked?
