    I doubt about this news. When did Nuer people know the benefit of Education? I know that those people who are given that scholarship are Nuer, but, however, I’m glad that when they finished their study, they will be rebels. There is a saying said that "a bird of the same feathers fly together".

        Augustino you are a narrowminded Dinka , I know if you are junoir you might be 1st lt col and if you are junoir in civil servant you might be Director General cause that is how you Dinkas talk.

        You don`t even know what the definition of ’’state ’’mean neither do you know what does it mean by saying we are ’’a nation’’ because every Dinka mind still in anarcy peroid of Governanship or regime ,but we are in 21 century and a Democractic Era.

        Should you be stupid as you were before, by marginalizing others ,killing educators and looting your own government, not only Nuer will liberated you as you know ,but also your State or Government will lost its recognition Internationally.

        What I want to remind you is this ’’ a State building shouldn`t be separated from a nation building ’’. And building a nation ,’’ it is all about changing wrong attitude towards others, it is changing all about discrimination ’’which you Dinkas love most’’ because when someone give you respect you mistreat him / her now everyone in Southern Sudan got learnt on you during your five years Government.

        Today, people get connected , if you ,your uncle ,mother ,father anti and Grands could understands things esle you should first seek ’’ What is The New World order than seeking a government which you yourselves loot ,corrupt and lawless State first .

        Sorry to say these things brother ,but we fed up ,all in your Government talks as you do . We can`t waite any more !!!

          Hey Mr Nhial Reath Thoan,

          You are a "thickminded" Nuer personel who just carry mind for no reason. In Southern Sudan, what kind of credibility is Nuer people known of? Frankly speaking, there is nothing so important known from Nuer, but what is known from Nuer is just stealing, looting, weaken heart, unpreseverance action and so forth. What Nuer people always think is like what the fish think in the river.

          In your last sentence, you said that "we can’t wait any more". I know that you can’t wait because you guys left only with some days and then you will rebel again. Go a head and rebel, but make sure that your master Dinka will not rebels. We are the tools, pillars and foundations of all tribes in Sudan. If you and I go to Khartoum today, the only person who can get kill is me but not you. Do you know the reason you idiot thickminded? The reason is that Dinka are tough people and Arabs people afraid of them because we don’t give any inches to Arabs.

          Anyway, enjoy yourself.

        Hey Mr James Nyol,

        Don’t be mad of me. I’m trying to direct your brain my dear. If you guys know the benefit of education, then that is why I tried to remind you that don’t rebel anymore. The word "rebel" now is the one that turn you down. My advise to you all is that take that surpulus education from Dinka and used it to develop your thick-empty minded. James Nyol, cursing me is like when you cursed your grandfather and mother. I’m your foundation and your life.

      Augustino, Nuer are ten times more educated than you people. I can see that you are just jealous that this privilege has not been granted to you in your poor state with corrupt practices and other vices.

      Stop assuming that you (Dinka) have many educated people than the mighty Nuer, that is a false imagination and get it our of your mind, my friend.

        Hey Mr Deng Francis,

        You are right my dear to say that Nuer are ten times educated. That sound good to me. But, that ten times educated is like a "baby who spilled out the milk from the cup". You guys of Nuer people you are very lucky indeed to take this opportunity when Dinka bleed during the war time. After all, even if you Nuer people think that you are more educated than Dinka people, I hope in the future coming, you Nuer people will be a fouth class Citizen like Mexicans and Black American people in united State of America. Dinka will be like a White people. Nuer will be like Mexican who just keep runing from the border looking for the way to come to America for the seek to find work and get food. Shame on you all.

        When SPLA was fighting with Arabs, all Nuer people run to Khartoum, but when CPA was initiated, all Nuer people come back to Southern Sudan. That is why I said that all Nuer people are like Mexicans people.
        Shame on you Mr Deng Francis.

    Dear Guys!

    Funds is not the matters, but what matters is that will they achieved their education and come with good degree in Sudan? There is no one who study outside Sudan had a good degree apart from late Dr. Garang in University of Califonia here in USA.

    Nobody who is fool to understand in education. May be due to some circumstances that make majority of them to delusive about education.

    Where many educators, there is many politicians that can sabotages the government policies and these always force people to form their rebellions.

    Let them study so that they can eradicate poverty and illiteray in tehir rregions.

    Well done mr. Minisiter for that good work.

      Akuma (or whatever your name is) did you mean that or you are jocking? you and I know very well that there are thousands of Sudanese/South Sudanese who studied from abroad with brilliant ideas, e.g. Dr. Riek Macher, Dr. Lam Akol, Dr. John Garang(himself), Dr. Marial, Dr. John Yoha, and many others are well know people with brilliant ideas.

      Sorry, Akuma I can’t understand whether you are trying to contribute in that childish argument ignited by that first poster or you real mean it. Sorry if any my words hurt your feeling.

        Hey Choldit!

        You think you know better than what i think,
        Sorry for that, and I talk with experience about Sudanese ideologist. If you just comment about many Doctors in Sudan? Among those you had mentioned early, who among those Doctors you are talking about had done something great like Dr. Garang, He struggle to bring to all corners of Sudan.

        I am among those Doctors who did nothing to Sudanese people like Dr. Riek Machar Teny, Dr. LAm Akol and many others, what have they did? Have you forget of 1991 pre-genocide those Doctors you talk about commit in Sudan?

        All those you are talking about, i personally know their bio if you ask me.

        Don’t be delusive or fastratication into commenting, if you don’t know what to say.

        Anyway, you may comment about me as childish, but my qualification not of your people/clan/tribe would not reach if i may talk about.
        Your ancestrals may not reach where i reach.

        My friends, please for the sacks of respect i have in you, i may just stop commenting about. If you are doubting about me,

        Ask Dr. Riek Machar, when we were together with him in 1976 in United Kingdom when i met him.

        There is a book i wrote about Dr. Lam and Dr. Riek Machar about their SSIM political they had formed during grisifation period in Sudan.

        Comments with respect.

        Dr. Akuma
