    The real South Sudan’s problems are not going to be resolved by Omer Al Bashir, Salva Kiir, Riek Machar and other bunch of traitors being held hostage in foreign capitals by their foreign minders that they have sold out our country and our people to? The ’RED LIGHTS’ are again signaling another WARNINGS. But they are being deliberately ignored by some criminals in the IGAD countries and their>>>

Why is the whole South Sudanese population being kept away from the South Sudanese from own peace when they are the ones who would come and own the peace themselves? South Sudanese NATIONAL DIALOGUE, here in side South Sudan and not in foreign capitals is the only right way to resolve these complex issues. But there are criminals>>>

        in the US, the UK, their UN, their NGOs & some of their lackeys here in our own region who think, they know what is best for the foolish South Sudanese people, when behind the scenes, they have their own ulterior motives & interests in our country and against our people. Riek Machar is just Riek Machar, he is worshiped by his lowly informed Nuers. And Salva Kiir is just Salva Kiir and some Dinkas?

A traitor like Lam Akol left his own party in 2016 and went form his yet another party in Kenya and ran back to Khartoum straight way. All South Sudanese with brains knew.

            Muslims and they have some obscene or nasty inflated egos to rule South Sudan and the South Sudanese people at all costs. Why is something that will come and go up in flames like it happened in July 2016 is being kept away as a ’secrete from the real owners of South Sudan?’ People who have their own selfish interests in our country and over our people, watch out fellows>>>

              Bring the damn whole negotiations right back to South Sudan, where the whole peace would come and be implemented in. That damn so-called peace being peddled about in foreign capitals would not go & be implemented in the hotels, brothels & bars of Adis Ababa, Nairobi or Khartoum, but right here in South Sudan>>>

North Sudan has a lot of her own massive problems, than we have here in South Sudan, Eritrea has her own problems, Abesh (so-called ethiopia) has her own, Somalia has her own problems & so does Kenya. In fact, Kenya & Abesh (so-called ethipopia) quickly put their own massive internal problems aside and ran>>>
