    Lam wasn’t contesting for real and some of his votes where stolen by threat as any intelligent knows what was happening during the election. People don’t want to get killed because of a paper as the fact they vote for tyrant Slava Kiir, 7% is a number and this is clear indication that he would have won but a number of factors are responsible for the insufficient outcomes, a wise can tell those barriers. Good attempt Dr Lam, you didn’t campaign but Southerns have shown desire for you as their dream leader.

      Dear readers,

      It is a shame that Sudan’s history books from now will be talking of a 2010 presidential election in which the SPLM’s candidate in the name of Yasser Arman was defeated by NCP’s Bashir.

      Yasser Arman got only 21% less than a woman’s share. A woman is given 25% share but Arman fell short of that.

      What a shameful "mock" result!

      In the South the two "running mates" or "twin candidates" (Kiir/Dr. Machar) got 93% of the votes.

      Kiir probably got 13% and Dr. Machar’s supporters contributed 80%, making the total of 93%.

      It is wise to contest presidential elections as "running mates" because it pays.

      Keep up the good team work Kiir/Dr. Machar!

        Salva Kiir,

        What are you talking about. Do you think that what you just did during the election is something easy? People were killed and many more wounded. What you call that? I don’t want to see your ugly Dinka face. Go to hell>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

        • 27 April 2010 08:28, by Aduol Liet

          World diseaster or World maker.

          What a shame.? Whose better between Lam Akol Ajawin and Slave Kiir Manyardit.? Come on man look, these Southern Sudanese people they know more than what you think. Lam Akol is not one of us in Southern Sudan put in mind what I real mean is that, Lam Akol has some agendas which you may not knowing for sure and he has lost the trust with Southern Sudanese people since he again returning back to Khartoum twices, do you want a leader that take the secrets of nation or citizens and gave to enemy.? His skin is a Black as you always saw him but his heart is absolutely purely Arab and we do not want him in Southern Sudan period.

        Comparably, Riach Machar is 100% excellent than Salver Kirr in all aspects, and Ali Osman is 100& execellent compare to Omer.

        Machar and Osman are Academic people with wide knowledge in broad fields, Omer and Kirr are Military, emerged from Juntas and rebellion System to Detector-Democracy System, they can at any time point Gun to who ever contradict them. People ( Citizens) voted for them amids fear that they would be under guns threat if don’t vote for Omer and Kirr.

        Quit lying you government impostor. You can’t run and you can’t hide. You identity has been revealed to the World.

        Keep enjoy yourself with blood money in Washington DC. But it wont be too long before you vomit the blood money you’re taking as an NCP informer/impostor at Sudanese Embassy in Washington DC.

        Voting for Albashir at Sudanese Embassy in Washington DC is not going to get you out of the hook, but it will implicate you more deeper in troubles.

        You’re trying so hard to discredit and sabotage us in this forum, but you wont do it for long time. The moment your bosses at the Embassy will find out that your identity has been exposed, they will kick your behind aside just like what they did to your former co-impostor. (you know exactly who I’m talking about)

        False assumption wont get you the glory you looking for. If Reik Machar has 80% supporters, why didn’t he run for Southern Sudan presidency? and then why he (Reik) lobbied Slava Kiir to be his (Salva) VP?

        Please when you want to comment on fact pls make good analysis,otherwise you are always off road,the 21% Vote for Saed Yasir Arman he got is more Valid than 68%, your uncle Omer Bashir got,because the one of Omer is full of rigging or invalid Votes which are not register.But yet he will be arrested by Ocamopo.Let him try to fly over Med Sea.That will be the end of his leadership in Sudan

      • 27 April 2010 22:15, by Malakal


        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.

          Those who were Machar, Lam and Bachir he was not there, but those people southerness vote for him. he did win by him while updeath during the ellection.

          • 28 April 2010 02:21, by kuminyandi

            Lady Gaga,

            When intellectuals people debate,you need to shut up. Go find other things to do because this (ellection according to you) election is bigger than your mind.


            • 28 April 2010 04:16, by Dinka Boy


              You made me laugh dear brother on the way you respond to that food lover( Padiet Gagag). He should go to the facebook whereby he can write rubbish.
              This site is far away and beyond his eyes level. Great advise bro.

      Dear All,

      Where are those of Logic_boy, Gatwech, Kim Deng and their foolish supporters?

      What shame on your NCP candidate Mr. Lam (7.01%) Hahahahahahhaha. I believe this is the percentage of Shilluks, plus some money and food loving people from Nuers and Equatoria. Where will Lam and his supporters go especially those of logic-boy, Gatwech, Kim Deng, BUSTA 2 and thieling? Maybe joining the north is an option.

      The 21% you see above doesn’t represent the real votes for SPLM. This is because Yasir declared earlier that he pulled out from race. Those votes you see are for those people who felt they couldn’t vote anyone unless they put them in SPLM box though Yasir resigned from preseidential race.

      I believe those who hate Kiir like logic_boy and Gatwech will soon seek employment in Kiir’s Government, otherwise follow your boss in the north.

      Jech Amer has comeback from security preparation during elections.

    Dear readers,
    That is good for the people of Sudan at large,
    To see the stand of their people through their votes and the results of this election is enough for us to pass this judgement.

    • 28 April 2010 05:18, by Abuk D- Nhial

      Gatweech and Kim were born native of doom understandings among nuer. They will end mad for ever. At least minimise going to KFC in Melbourne and understand what SPLM is ! This Riek whom you have been hiking up saying he persuaded 80% to vote for Kiir, is doubly untrue but that is not the case, Riek is wise enough to know that repent has many activities to be shown. Please leave Riek alone and talk of your selfish interest or if you are Riek’s daughter, give your father a chance of supporting SPLM wholeheartedly inorder to achieve the goal of being a permanent vice chairperson during referendum.

      All in all, Kiir has never forgotten of his people and off to North. So get to advise Lam that Abuk D Nhial has been playing a great role leading to his shameful defeat of 7% and Kiir with 93% wuh !
      I live for my people not for my self !!.

      Happy to let all know that Bharelgazel Youth Union was recently formed last month in Australia (NSW). The meeting gathered 544 Baregazelians Youths and Local leaders. The election was peacefully organised to elect a very educated and a honest capable boy from Gogrial among 4 candidates. He the (chairman) was by name, John Akol Mayuot (gogrial), Mr. Dr Ajou (Aweil) Mr. Maluach Madit Maluach (Rumbek), mrs Ayiei Madut Ring (Gogrial), Mr. Kon Awillo (Aweil) General Matung Lueth (Rumbek), queen Achol Jiel Marong..... with others. I know their wisdom and how capable they are...
      Wish them good reputations in this gov.t

      Note: I persuade them to work for SPLM as my boy friend/ girlfriend is among these body....
