        Congratulation!Salva Kiir.Your patience staying with the Late Garang has assured your Southerners of your fair governance otherwise anybody who has ever fired his gun targeting the black Africans in the Sudan can never defeat you by all means as evidence by your great victory over the then anti-SPLM chairman.

          Dear readers,

          Congratulations to Salvatore Kiir/Dr. Riek Machar for being "running mates" or "twin candidates" which has now brought such a big success in the elections.

          Kiir probably got 13% plus 80% got by Dr. Machar’s supporters, making the total of winning percentage 93% for Kiir.

          Bravo and keep up the team work!

            Dr Riek is a fail politician. He believe in ngundeng Boung false prophesies that will never come to fruition. ngundeng boung is a source of false comfort of those who believe in him.

            You (Gatwech) resort to ngundeng prophesies when your hero wife lost the election in Unity state. You will wait for ngundeng prophesies to materialise until you go to your grave with your hero. Dr Riek is not clean and he cannot be trusted for the leadership of Leer leave alone the leadership of south sudan.

            NO my friend you are extremely foolish. Salva Kiir got 93% by himself as the only patriot among the traitors. Your Riak and Lam are the ones combined for that 7% Lam got for his so-called SPLM-Dinka Change.

      This is very clear that this lame-duck president of government of self service has rigged the elections. This ’s never been any president in the world who won with 93 percent, its totally stupid of them to have rigged this way when everyone would know that its a open riggig or stupid rigging.

      If anything, kiir couldn’t get 93% because he is devalued at the stock exchange of politics/populance.

      Let him eat and amass all the southern resources to himself but he should know that his days are numbered. They have also depopularise SPLM as a party and have tarnished its very reputation and violate the very objective SPLM fought for.

        Mr. Deng Francis,

        Salva Kiir is not a lame duck president as you say, but a popular and loved president as shown by the votes he obtained. Yes, we as southerners has shown to the world that our president got 93% because we love and voted for him overwhelmingly. Salva liberated your stinked ass and what he contributed is much more than your poor life as well as the parents who bore you.
        Throw yourself into the Nile, mad dog.

        Deng Francis,

        i don’t think you what lame-duck president means. Lame-Duck means president is a lame-duck after a successor has been elected, usually the outgoing president and he/she got two or one month left in the office. if you want to know more, then look or read USA twentieth Amendment.

        so you used the word wrongly and the whole statement of yours doesn’t make sense. Also Salva Kiir didn’t ran with anybody because whom do you think will vote for that traitor who have his headquarter in Khartoum. south Sudanese traitors are less than 10% of the population.

    Dr Lam, South Sudanese knows what they are doing. That is why you only got 07% while Dr. Kiir got 93%. You are now the loser you would have enjoy money without doing campaign.
    South Sudanese loves you but they hate your behavours.

      Mabruk comrade Salva Kiir for winning and an equally to Dr. Lam for making democracy lively.

      Finally; the people have vocally spoken and the Peoples’ Party, the SPLM has won it magnificient margin. It’s clear a message to the world and particularly those who wish us bad; notably the Countries opposed to our prerogative to self determination, that we shall stop at nothing, but getting there.

      It’s now time for all Southern Sudanese from all walks of life, states, and regions to reconcile and rally behind the challenges that lies ahead.

      For the first time; we have elected a government of our own. We all did it. Nobody should try to sell any ill motived assertions that so and so; this tribe; this state; this region did; We all did it.

      The result disapproves the prophets of dooms who continue to portray southern Sudanese as violent and divisive People.The fact that calm has remained during the voting; when the results were delayed and Upon the announcement of results etc, shows what kind of people are found in this corner of the world.

      I join all my comrades on the web in getting my shoulders high!

      Mabruk to all of us (Winners and Losers)

        Congratulation to president Kiir and people of Southern Sudan in general, though it was hard time for liberators to be changed into democratic minded people, Southern Sudan had emerged colourful with her first experiments successful and we can call a election despite of its odds and good.
        However, for losers like Dr. Lam Akol, a conclusion can be drawn why the interval or gap is so widely between the two great leaders of the South ( Kiir & Lam).
        From this election, Dr. Lam should remember an English say which goes" In presence of water a lizard can not claim to be a crocodile" therefore, Dr. Lam association with those of Bashir and Arabs leaders in Khartoum can not give Dr. Lam a ticket to win election as Bashir did in the North, otherwise, for Dr. Lam charity begins at home and Dr. Lam agenda of change should be understood more clearly in the South rather the North to preach the potentiality of Dr. Lam.
        Otherwise, South Sudan will move smoothly without those of Dr. Lam, Bona Malwal and those sneaks in the green grass from Khartoum.

It depend on their interest.

    I think Kiir Mayardit doesn’t deserve to be congratulated because he rigged the said election. All South Sudanese knew that Lam Akol will lose that election by wide margin but the dim-witted Kiir spoiled what suppose to be cake-walk victory by intimating, arresting, detaining, and threatening the supporters of expecting loser, what a shame!

      Those alegations of arrest, detention and intimidation are always the best consolatory recipe for an election loser. They are always baseless and in most part fabricated stories. So no one accepts them; let Dr. Lam just walk away peacefully with his 7%.

        Dear Panchol!

        They always said "no smoke without fire". Dismissing all claim as baseless is quite unreasonable and blind defend especially you lack concrete base of truth on the ground. Yes, all agree that Lam Akol but I disagree if this dim-witted Kiri Maynard has better alternative and his win is nothing to celebrate.

    It was a wild dream for Dr. Lam to think that he would win South Sudan’s presidency. He doesn’t have any chance at this time when war pictures are still vivid in the minds of Southerners. At this time the Southerners are standing with their liberaters not with deserters. Dr. Lam is seen as a traitor in South Sudan and I am sure he knows that very well. He should now calm down and show Southern Sudanese that he is truthworthy.

    I do not see the reason for people blindly congratulate Kiir for the Victory. If the south sudanese voted overwhelmy as stated in this article, then it was not because of Kiir good leadership but because of lack of alternative candidate.

    Dr Lam was not any choice to any wise south sudanese. People voted for SPLM and not Kiir individually. Kiir leadership must tackle the rampant corruption and the deterioting insecurity in the south. Kiir must deliver his party promises to the south sudanese. This time no sitting idle and posting for pictures.

    Genuine SPLM supporters must recognised the failure of the party. Without recognising the party’s shortcomings then the Splm is doom for failure.

        what a joke!!!???? Dr. Riek and Dr. Lam are the same because the joined southern Sudan’s common enemy together and came back together. Dr. Riek could have received 7% if he ran solely. Both Doctors are deserters, traitors and worse leaders to be elected when the civil war images are still fresh in people mind. Angelina is better than Dr. Riek in term of leadership. however, how did Dr. Riek got 80% anyway? show us your statistics for South Sudan states.

        Southerness know that your are temperary for this short period of time, even thought you are a symbol due to your weakness and cowardness. You can not lead south, because south need well educated and brave people like Dr Reik and Lam. Mean while, you can not do any thing with out them as they are your eye and mouth.
        They are the wing of Goss, we must pray Ngundeng to increase time that he mentian for you to go he can add some year to your life not to disappear shortly. According to his wards.

        Many southerness know that this selfdetermination came through vision of DR. Machar and Dr Lam except Ayual only whose their vision is business

      Dear Southerners,

      Let us take this opportunity to congratulate our President Salva Kiir and his winning team throughout Southern States. Let us also congratulates the winner of Western Equatoria State although he is an independent politician. Taban Deng Gai of Unity State needs to be thank for his hard work in Unity State although he had difficult times in that part of our country. May God bless their tenures throughout the transitional period until whatever outcome of the referendum in 2011.

        "The elections in the south experienced a high incidence of intimidation and the threat or use of force," the Carter Center said after the voting on April 18.

        "There were numerous instances of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army intimidating voters and being stationed too close to polling stations. State interference in the campaigns of opposition candidates was widespread in the south," said the Atlanta, Georgia-based organization headed by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter.

        I guess it obvious why he won with more than 90% of the votes. Sounds more like a dictatorship win - Mubarak, Saddam, Gaddafi - 90 % votes. This is not a sign of democracy !! Yet the west is quick to criticize the Norths election and Bashirs win - hypocrisy !!

    To Salva Kirr and Dr.Riek Machar in South Sudan and Bashier/Dr.Tah in the North.

    It is time now for SPLM and NCP to turn their tension to questions like how thier government formation will reflect on the inclusiveness they talking about that we Sudanese are expecting them to exercise.

    We the Sudanese citizens are NOT willing to be seen as aliens by the rest of the World nore willing to be bulled by big brothers in the world’s richest countries or killers in the name of Hala/God but willing to do a genuine democratic world politics with our fellow human beings in ways that respect humanity.

    This should be a time to stop war but enhances development in the Sudan.This should be started by finishing the remainding protocols in CPA e.g. border demacation(if not solve now will definately will get South and North back in war) and puting an end the Darfur war in the west of the country.
