    Great idea for South Sudan to have their current affairs reported in their independent newspaper. I encouraged journalists not to write unfiltered ideas in this media. Bias of journalist is always against the interest of the progress of South Sudan. The information must contained raw datas and good evidences. Thanks

      This newspaper would only survive if it continues praising the government which is its safe havens, otherwise it would meet its fate just like its predecessors in the region such as Juba Post and many others.

        Great idea! But Journalists should print their articles in consistent with the law. The government cannot tolerate anything that inconsistent with SPLM interests. I am a diehard Journalism’s right, but most Journalists in Southern Sudan are incompetence due to their lack of skills to differentiate wrong Vs right. In other words, it’s the obligation of head of the Media to ensure that all articles that expect to be print must be examined prior to their print out date. Journalists are always complaining about their freedoms being targeted while most of them print articles that incompatible with the law. How the Journalists expect the government to do when they print out illegal articles that harm the government’s reputation?

          Dinkas don’t own any newspaper in Juba. Stop your pathetic tribal comments. This article doesn’t mention anything related to Dinkas period! This is a national independent newspaper which means that it’s for all Southerners at large. Be rational in your comment otherwise your comments will always be regarded as rubbish.

            Yeah brother Angelo Ajiech Manyuat. First, my warm greetings to you.

            You are right to let this fellow know that nothing is written about Dinka in the article. It’s not Dinka Today, but "South Sudan Today". His Dinkaphobia has blinded him.
