      D.D. SPLA,

      Man, don’t put all your mentalities toward one person all the time. Otherwise, you will die with the heart-attack before the most person you hate from this planet, Riek Machar dies as you always daydream about his death. Just mind your own business and leave the man alone. In the Holly Bible, it clearly stated that there is time for everything. All the current GOSS officials have once mistaken during the struggle like Mr. Machar, but now his time for them to serve us and let’s wait for our turn to serve. You have right to criticize any leader who his not doing his job. But wishing him death all the time, shows us that you have a hidden agenda behind your criticism and we could categorize you as a tribalism man on South Sudan soil.

This traitors so called collaborators calling themselves warriors when infact they are food mongers with no spla/Splm record of achievement only barking. what have they achieved on planet earth apart from building arab houses in khartoum and riak being our messanger to his khartoum masters. This Gatwech is not even ashamed to point finger at us the generators who brought everything on silver plate. They either shut up or they go back to khartoum to their masters where they belong. We don’t give a Fuck they are political visitors.

      Where is your ugly ass Nyadeng pussy? Can you tell me where she is? I hope she is not in Khartoum with those nuba guys rolling on the 60 years old ugly Nyadeng. Nyadeng must be brought before the Supreme Court of southern Sudan and tell southern Sudanese where the money is for the whole south since the beginning of the war in 1983. They have been hiding money in Zimbabwe, Uganda, Uk, and other countries. Those money need to be brought back to southern Sudan as soon as Riek becomes the president of southern Sudan. A team will be set up to investigate Nyadeng for her role in looting people money all these years. Alert!!!!!!!

        Why you are so silly like that? You looks like you are a gay Sudanese who just joint the gay groups activisits.

        What wrong with you? You look likes you haven’t got sex for long time. If that is the case why don’t come here in the south and have some fun with those prostitutes from you own tribes. Barking from abroad will never help.

    This will give the voters more time to figure out their names and polling stations, this is a step in the right direction from NEC to voters.

    • 12 April 2010 19:28, by yirolda

      Thatis a good idea but the staffs will starve because in the remote areas there is no even water for drinking leave alone food NEC should be serious in providing food and water to its staffs. it is very unfortunate that in Lakes the commission gives only 6 pounds per day to each polling officer and some non which is unfair and energy drainage

    Cheating and stealing is the machine that sustains the NCP in power. The NCP has stolen the election in the hope that Bashir will not go to court before the ICC. No. Election does not justify genocide and rape of women and children. Justice must proceed as planned.

    Great news and that to NEC for their highest consideration that have considered about the issues of South Sudan. We have problem of finishing vote at the right time because lots of people are living in the remote areas that could not easily arrived to the voting stations at the exact time. And the arrival of voting materials late encourage the Goss to request for the delay.

    • 13 April 2010 10:16, by Riangnom

      Well state from NEC for extending days of casting vote, because this nation has majors problems; lack of technology to cast ballots through electronically and also matter of distant from the polls stations the locals citizens can not reach those places on times.

      SPLM Oyeeeeee !!! HISTORIC PARTY OYEEEE !!! JOHN GARANG OYEEEE! SALVA KIIR OYEEE ! SOUTH SUDAN OYEEE ! Just only some months away and the new nation will be born; great nation South Suadan. We can’t wait for that what a wondreful joy to come

      I am the gate to north souh bordr.
