      Good observation so why don’t you advice your corrupt brothers to abandon evil policies, so that the whole tribe will not be victimized. Jieng are brothers to other South Sudanese but JCE greed and dream of domination made Jieng to be seen as trouble makers in Juba, Malakal, Wau, Nimule, Yambio, Maridi, Yei, Leer, Guit, Mayendit & Now in Mundri, Wondruba, Katigiri, Mayom, Raja & still counting
