February 14, 2017 (JUBA) – A daughter to South Sudan President, Salva Kiir said she is disappointed about deteriorating security situation faced by civilians in the country.

Achol Salva Kiir, who lives in neighboring Kenya, said political rivalry between the president and armed opposition leader, Riek Machar is a threat to civilians.

“I cried about the starvation my people are going through after visiting hospital with no medication, church and situation in the United Nations camp was horrible,” said Achol.

She reportedly visited Agok and Apuk counties and that everything was in a "mess".

According to the first daughter, women, the elderly and children were suffering from starvation. It however remains unclear who facilitated her visit to the troubled areas.

Currently, the U.N estimates that over 3.5 million people have fled the war-torn nation after fighting erupted between the two rival factions in South Sudan. Tens of thousands of people been killed in South Sudan’s worst-ever violence since independence.

      We use to advise fool that, the problem is not about Dinka as our poeple think, but the problem of SS is about elite in the government, Agok is a very home land of Salva Kiir and people are in a very bad suffering as Achol Kiir put it. let us comment about it, is Achol exaggerating it or the situation is really existing.

    Talk to your father ya last daughter Achol. It is the mess created by your Father that made our people suffer. This means, your very future in this country as former sons of President-not granted. Your father behaves like Idi Amin of Uganda and Hitler of Germany but God will help South Sudanese. Look at how he made people hate innocent Dinka, who are suffering like the rest. Call him now to go.

              Congo is even rich in minerals than even our country and that is why the Europeans and even some former Belgium exploits like Rwanda often and even Uganda often invade their country at will. Congo even has a permanent UN base that will never leave their country. And that is what the US, the UK, their UN, their sleazy NGOs and some of their criminals in between would to replicate here in>>>

                    Slow down a little bit. I thought Kiir had stolen the monies to build a mansion in Agok and NOT in Kenya. Pls. love your state go back to develop it. I keep insisting that KOKORA is good for all of us and Achol Kiir must live by a good example and just go home. It doesn´t help to live like squatters in Equatoria and become "chicken or goat thieves". So jienge go home please!

                    Kuch. Equatorian are all civilised whether go to school or not. So do not border to educate us about History here. Who were the first revolutionist in South Sudan? Stop your nonsense, go and claim Abiey - Dinka Ngok from the Sudan. Be aware that Dinka’s are soon will starts fighting amongst themselves especially Kiir state and only first President Daughter will be spare. Believe that.

        we don’t want the handouts. The government that you are protecting doesn’t even have anything to hand to the people. You just got that say of handout from the US people that you are always reading or watching on the TV. South Sudanese don’t believe in handouts. It they did they would’ve all been slaves in Khartoum by now. Our people work hard.I don’t know with you.Peace is needed not Nepotis

    You still have limited an opportunity to bring peace and don’t miss it. All should talk to your father Salva Kiir and if he does not listen to your advice, kick him out of the family. Tell him that a peace in a nation means a peace at your family. Don’t miss this last chance Achol.

    Let, me tell that you have the chance at your disposal to unite the people of South Sudan. Stop your naive thinking that the weapons you own can scare 63 tribes and submit to your fake leadership. Time, will come, when, you will become landless and wander like Fulani and Fulata in Nigeria and Senegal. These were powerful, rude, once major tribes but a coalition of minority came up and beat

    Dear Achol,

    You are a national figure as you have cried for the suffering of our people South Sudanese, but that is not the solution, the suffering will continue if we could not define the root cause of all this suffering, we were born in war and we grown old in war, what is the problem? why do all generation subject themselves into the heel of war and suffering?
    Please let your daddy think twic

    This lady sounds like she is not blood of Kiir. To end the suffering of the people of this great nation you need to advice your father, if at all he is your father. And i will tell you what to do. Tell him to stop listening to those old fashion elders who branded themselves as jieng council of elders. Trust me this council is our Ebola here in south Sudan.

    Kuch, instead of utilizing the knowledge that you have to raise awarenessabout the danger(reducing the world population to the average number controllable) and help reconcile our community, you are lighting on the fire of hate by your comments here on ST. and that’s makes me to be doubtful about your identity as if you are part of the conspiracy...thanks

    SS problem is not Salva Kiir, South sudan problem is you people that badly about government or dinka. Salva Kiir is not a tribalism man or president, you’re the tribalis man or woman because if Salva Kiir go’s to your house now and asked you lest have peace between me and you so that we end the suffering of the people of our country, would you agree? I don’t think so, so Ss problem is not Salva Ki

      Because he can not bring peace in the country alone if you don’t want peace. So you can not talk about Salva K or about dinka people are bad why because if you’re speaking about tribespecially that means you don’t care about peace or about people’s that leave in that country, so stop talking about you want to finish dinka because if that the case, black human wasn’t going to be exist on this earth
