    Attracted by the smell of power, political flies are decamping for fortunes. Losers and good-for-nothing scammers are trying to crawl their way to political epics. Worthless miscreants and drought dogs.

            This little jienge coward "One People" just provoked me and I am giving him a beating. Of course I am very peaceful and love jienges. Real peace will come once jienges get back to their places, develop them meanwhile letting the rest also develop theirs, that simple. Even brothers of one father go separate ways each marries, starts a family and life continues.

    It is only in South Sudan that a group of 40 officers command 300 soldiers. All lives that are lost in South Sudan are taken so that those power hungry ones could get positions. What a mercy?

      There we go! Bunch of usual illiterates giving themselves inflated ranks (muoc rot du gaar) and they will come and complain about development not reaching villages when all the money for developments would be spent on their salaries. The madness in South Sudan is quite staggering.

    There will be no peaceful coexistence in South Sudan because of Nuers militias. Just look how many generals dose these rebels have? All Nuers people including civilians wanted to be generals and many others politicians wanted to become a president at once. Gabriel Changson and Peter Gatdet are fighting each other, because of new vp, will be award to oppositions Alliance and they never feel shame.

    Gabriel Changson and general Peter Gatdet don;t even thinks what the South Sudanese people are judging them. A human being who has no commonsense or logic is considering inhuman by saying this. We have second VP, general Taban Deng Gai and trouble makers Riek Machar is coming back to take first VP. Now Changson want to take VP, for oppositions Alliance.The Nuers people must adjust culture greed.
