Kiir, Machar reach deal over South Sudan states’ allocation


June 17, 2020 (JUBA) - President Salva Kiir and his first deputy Riek Machar Wednesday have stuck a deal on the allocation of the 10 states in South Sudan ending a three-month stalemate.

President Kiir shakes hands with his FVP Macahr in a recent meeting at the presidency (SSPPU photo)Last May, Machar rejected the allocation of his homeland the Upper Nile State to the SSOA, stressing that the prominence of the peace parties in each state must influence the choice of the states.

He also stressed that the decision on the power-sharing at the level of states and local governments is taken by the parties by consensus and referred the dispute to the Reconstituted Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (RJMEC).

In a statement released on Wednesday in Jube, Nhial Deng Nhial Presidential Affairs Ministers announced that the two leaders have reached an agreement during a second meeting held on today after a meeting on Saturday 14 June, to discuss the deadlock.

Nhial further said that following an agreement reached Wednesday the SPLM-IG will nominate the Governors six states, the SPLM-IO three states and the SSOA for one state.

According to the deal, the party of President Kiir will take the following states : (a) Northern Bahr El Ghazal State (b) Warrap (c) State Lakes State (d) Eastern Equatoria State (e) Central Equatoria State (f) Unity State.

While Machar’s group will get (a) Western Bahr El Ghazal State (b) Western Equatoria State (c) Upper Nile State.

The SSOA will nominate Jonglei State Governor.

According to the initial decision of last May, Jonglei had been allocated to SPLM-IO.

All the observers had said that an agreement on the allocation of states would take some weeks but none of them predicted that it would be so difficult to conclude.

First, many signatories were hostile to the SPLM-IG demand for six states and explained that arithmetically the partisans of President Kiir can only take five states. But the debate ended when the OPP ceded its seat to the SPLM-IG.

Wednesday’s agreement did not mention the dispute over the three Administrative Areas of Abyei, Ruweng, and Greater Pibor which are rejected by the SPLM-IO.

However, Nhial said that "Matters pertaining to the composition of the Executive and Legislature in the states shall be discussed and agreed at a later date".

    Dr. Nhial Deng Nhial
    The Country need you brother, even though the President Kiir Mayardit is not willingly to hand over his leadership still your skills and your understanding the problems solving from the beginning started CPA proven beyond that, you are the most senior person who have been viewed gained experience to take this Country and reset smart government and good governance systems tha

      Bullshit!This Nhial Deng Nhial is just another worthless punk, like many of your damned jienge amateurs, he is nothing.Have you forgotten that he was there before, in that same gov’t with Kiir?What had he done?Nothing!Will he bring any positive change within that rotten jienge gov’t?No!Shit,you people are like pigs, that always enjoy taking bath in the same dirt and expect different....

      • 18 June 00:26, by The Rhino


        ..results,disgusting!Kiir and Machar must implement their godamn peace and get the hell out of Equatoria.We want all PoC sites in Equatoria shutdown and anything moving on two feet transported back to their places of origin, full stop!

        • 18 June 06:49, by Nueri Dial

          We want peace to be implemented, all PoC closed but remember Dr.Riek is a PHD and Salva Kiir is primary, therefore it is difficult to deal with illiterate! I blame IGAD on this, they suppose to add word ’’INU’’ into agreement so that Kiir recognize his word. Any agreement without word ’’inu’’ will never be respected by kiir. He always look for that word and if it is not there, no agreement

          • 18 June 07:04, by South South

            Nueri Dial,

            Sweet, sweet, we are taking Riek’s home state away from him. Unity State is ours. I am happy that agreement is reached for state allocations, but that’s not what’s important for Kiir. What’s imporntant for Kiir is SSPDF, Kiir has full control of SSPDF. People can jump up and down, but everyone is under controlled. The one who has power will rule South Sudan, not the other way around.

            • 18 June 09:14, by Nueri Dial

              South South,
              If Kirimnal Mayardit is in full control of SSPDF, then why reshuffling is done in favor of Angelina, have you ask yourself why he appointed SPLA-IO in his rank? James Koang and the rest will still report to Dr.Riek if you don’t know. Also if he have power, he could not reverse 32 states as well as give up UNS to SPLA-IO. You will never know who is in power. It is not position but voic

              • 18 June 12:04, by South South

                Nueri Dial,
                You are sleeping deep and that’s ok with us. James Koang is not longer with Riek. He refuses this shit of family’s business for Riek alone. Angelina Riek is just a picture. Did you see her name mentioned when Kiir reshuffled SSPDF? No,we really don’t care about her.Riek has no money to have SPLA_IO reporting to him. If he needs money, he MUST come to Kiir, sweet, sweet, enjoy.

          • 19 June 08:02, by Chiir

            Nueri Dial,

            Mentioning Riek’s Ph.D. makes you even more stupid! Riek forgot everything a long time ago as he never practiced what is on those worthless papers. Strategic planning and he failed many times and the last failure almost got his ass blown off, which is why he is a little reformed now. Got that? Let’s not talk about the papers now and instead get down to the real work, okay?

        • 18 June 06:56, by jubaone

          Great! You can turn them around, wash them clean, dress them up, wipe clean their stinking shitholes, these jienges and nyagats will still undress themselves and wallow in dirt. Nothing will happen. Equatorians should focus on EQUATEXIT. Have Nuers in Juba PoCs started returning to their ancestral lands? Jienges still squatting in Nimule?

          • 18 June 23:07, by The Rhino


            Thank you very much for your punchier,intelligent and firm input straight on.The case in South Sudan is not yet over,until its over!Here’s the cut,.if Dinka and Nuer savages blindly convince themselves so far that Juba and Equatoria is their next occupation and home,then they better think twice!Fact is,its not,and so shall it be for further time/s!If they and their stooges continue to...

            • 18 June 23:23, by The Rhino


              ..pursue that direction or ideology of suppression,then I can guarantee those fucking savages that they have already lost the battle,thus,..let them bleed and severely suffer, period!!!These savages up to date haven’t yet recognized that they’re squatting on a powder cake in Equatoria.Here’s the word,.."We’ll hunt’em, we’ll destroy’em" precisely so by breaking their back bones,full stop!

          The Rhino,

          Monkey like you should leave us alone to do important things in our country. You are very powerless, but you talk big in net. This is the only way coward people like you make a lot of noise. Things on the ground are in Kiir’s hand, people like you can make all noises of the world, but will that chnage anything on the ground? No, then what’s the point of talking monkey?

            Jienge dirty kaffir, you were just waiting to join the 7th October Movement and that’s why you hid your shithole. Now it’s over, you can return like a bitchy dog for food remains at Kiirminal’s table.Hang yourself giant gorilla. You backed like a hungry dog over 32 states, they’re gone and you jienge couldn’t do anything. Most of you are comfortable as refugees and squatters.

          • 18 June 07:27, by jubaone

            South South,
            Do important things? Only intelligent Equatorians can do important things while you foolish majority just wait and watch. Was that important when Mayiik Deng (looks like some giant dinosaur: big body small head and brains)official of the Juba-Bahr el ghasal highway stupidly messed up? How greedy and stupid must one be to be so screwed up by short-legged Chinese, jienge?

        Dr.Nhial Deng is the best well known in the world not only South Sudan but the whole world. The CPA which brought the independence was negotiating in Kenya until the process was completed under his control. Rhino, be aware the Equatoria you guys always talked about was liberated by Sons of Dinka. Don’t let you guys be fools by Thomas Cirillo and others Equatorians exiles people. From Easter

          You are big liar, CPA was negotiated in parts, SS by Pagan Amum, NS by Yasir Arman, blue nile by Malik Agar and Abei by Deng Alor. Where did your loser Nhila Deng came into being? Nhial Deng is a good guy but his vision of New Sudan plus his being a Jaang/Slave would never qualify him leadership.

        • 18 June 07:13, by jubaone

          Jienges ran to Ethiopia, some headed to Kakuma camp to hide themselves. See how George Athor, Malong and now Keribinos rebellions all miserably failed. You wonder how SPLA survived with such disorganized nature. You jienge just have to be commandeered around, you are just the foolish majority who till today haven’t organized your own luaks.

          • 18 June 09:24, by Khent


            And what, the Equatorians stayed behind and fought? That’s the kind of comical nonsense I needed to hear. So your people did not run to Uganda? Your people did not form a dozen or so Khartoum-compliant militias? Did the Nuer not become slaves after 91? Did the Shilluk not follow Lam Akol? The Dinka, the Nuba and southern Blue Nile fought Khartoum.

            • 18 June 11:13, by jubaone

              What about all these jellaba bootlickers: Bona Malwal, Aldo Ajou, Bishop Roric, George Kongor, Moses Machar, Abdel Bagi Ayii, Kerubino Kwanyin and many others who were worse than militia warlords who dined with Bashir? Clean up your jienge shit first b4 pointing fingers.

              • 18 June 11:22, by Khent


                How many times must I point out that these men could not inspire the Dinka to join them into slavery? Why did the largest tribe in Sudan (Dinka) not provide tens of thousands of slave soldiers to Khartoum?

                • 18 June 11:24, by Khent

                  Before South Sudan’s secession, the Dinka were the largest tribe in all of Sudan and so Khartoum probably thought that we would stop fighting them if they positioned the likes of Moses Machar and George Kongor as 2nd Vice-Presidents - a position that did not allow them to exercise any power...

                  • 18 June 11:25, by Khent

                    ..The 2nd Vice-President post was entirely symbolic; it was an insincere ploy by Khartoum to convince the world into thinking that Sudan was actually pluralistic. The position was worthless, the same way that Riek being accorded the Presidency of south Sudan was worthless - precipitating in the abrogation of his pathetic agreement...

                    • 18 June 20:24, by jubaone

                      Are you trying to exonerate, downplay or underrate the treachery, backstabbing your jienge elders did while pretending to tell us, it was the Equatorians, Nuers etc who were jellaba hirelings? Your argument lacks objectivity amidst the glaring truth of how these jienge elders were worse than militia leaders. They fed at your cost and that of other SS at large.

                • 18 June 16:21, by jubaone

                  Because they needed food. Bona Malwal was the hardest critic of the SPLA while Aldou was Dep Parliament Speaker who persuaded countless jienge youth from Aweil not to join the SPLA. He wanted to protect himself, his kids etc. Bishop Roric was a NIF and got many of his Rumbek critics liquidated. We have all these information. These were worse than militia warlords.

                  • 18 June 17:18, by Khent


                    It’s like the Twilight Zone in here; so people who provided tens of thousands of fighters are apparently innocent, while those that denounced, rejected and reviled the small handful of individual traitors from their tribe are guilty? Sterling logic there, mate. Aldou must have been really terrible at his grift; the Dinka of Aweil provided 80% of all Dinka soldiers to the SPLA...

            • 18 June 13:15, by jubaone

              Equatorians never fought alone, neither did jienges nor Nuers. All Southerners collectively participated just as we did for the Jan 2011 referendum. You personally neither fought nor even voted and to turn around and brag big, is being an impostor, acting like a coon.

              • 18 June 17:29, by Khent


                Why are you now backtracking? You’ve consistently maintained the absurd notion that the largest contributors to the SPLA were somehow absent from the battlefield. When did I claim that the Dinka prosecuted the war entirely on their own? The tribes of South Sudan did not equally contribute, but virtually every tribe did participated in the war...

                • 18 June 17:36, by Khent

                  ..And this precisely what you should be highlighting, instead of trying to convince people that your embittered fables are a good stand-in for reality. My father, uncles and older cousins fought during the war.

                  PS: I voted in the Referendum.

          • 18 June 17:50, by Nueri Dial

            What make SPLA survive was b/se of contribution from all tribe but after it turn and loot civilian resources, resistant emerged and men of war left the bunch eaters. But Jaang/Slave would never accept the truth. Civilians can never resist their own soldier unless they turn against them. SPLA-io stayed in Equatoria for Many yrs with no complain

        • 18 June 16:15, by jubaone

          Mayendit ,
          The operational cmdr of the SPLA Eastern front Obuto Mamour under the Zonal Cmdr Kuol Manyang was instrumental in liberating Torit in the mid 90s with just 2 or 3 T55 tanks and dedicated Otuho, Didinga, Topotha fighters while most jienges fought from afar with long range Stalin organs. After liberation, Kuol was first to get the spoils for himself. This coward stood behind Mamour.

          • 18 June 17:44, by Khent


            More myth-making. The Dinka were apparently just relaxing while the tribes that created Khartoum-compliant tribal militias did all the fighting. In your confused and inverted world, the Dinka are incredibly daft and can only be led by others... but they’re also Machiavellian enough to mastermind a plot in which all the tribes just willfully surrender their political power to them...

            • 18 June 20:33, by jubaone

              Garang and the SPLA high command in order to command, organize and prosecute the war in one specific zone, had to recruit cmdrs, footsoldiers from that area. It beats commonsense to assume, hordes of jienge fighters came into Equatorian lands and did the fighting while we idly stood by. That’s jienge pretext for crediting themselves as sole liberators

              • 19 June 14:31, by Paul

                @Jubaone, now I am certain you were nowhere near Equatoria during civil war. Yes, there were 80% Dinka foot all over Equatoria, 10% soldiers from Eqatoria, 6% Soldiers from Nuer, 3% soldiers from Nuba Maintains, 1% Ethioians arm forces.

  • 17 June 22:47, by Mayendit

    The reason why a bunch of Idiocy call them SPLM I0 particular Riek Machar refusal on giving up Upper Nile State is because of oil production and the second reason was to runs his rebellion activities in there however, the Juba1 must study their move every single day. Good recommendation to President Salva Kiir Mayardit is to make sure the Riek Machar’s fighters must not staying in Uppe Nile.

    • 17 June 23:56, by Nueri Dial

      Don’t cry yet, the incoming president has already set rules and guidelines for you to follow: Thanks Dr.Machar for compromising, you know always that Dinka love food and would want more than 6 governors! you are needed by your people and congratulation for returning UNS to owners. Shiluk governor is coming soon! Let all kiir supporters kills themselves

      • 18 June 00:44, by The Rhino

        Nueri Dial,

        Last I heard was that,a Nuer can cross rivers and borders only for food,thats why they are called "food lovers"!He is ready to sacrifice his own life and lives of his tribesmen for a mighty bowl of food.Given the level of chaos and bouncing back & forth of your fellow men during all these crises in S.Sudan,I can imagine a Nuer selling out his own children when promised a food factory.

  • 18 June 01:52, by Mayendit

    What a Idiot’s Nueri Dial. In Upper Nile, the Dinka are the majority than Shullik and others communities. This time, Johnson Olony must pay a price for destroying two Ferries and killing Dinka soldiers who were inside. Riek Machar, Johnson Olony, Mabior Garang, James Gatdet Dak and others are in our watch and we will get written off them.

    • 18 June 06:55, by Nueri Dial

      Keep crying and bark but don’t bark at a distance, come to upper Nile and hear what is happening. Johnson Olony launch his rejection of giving UNS to Dinka last time with artillery shooting into the air. Kiir is weak b/se you Jaang/Slave can’t fight. UPDF is busy with M7 and GEM has been destroyed, Egypt is busy with Ethiopia and all Congo, Kenyan and Rwanda whom were fighting Nuer..

      • 18 June 07:00, by Nueri Dial

        Cont.. under umbrella of UPDF are all tired and not willing to help Kiir. That is why you see Dr.Riek is brave then ever. in 2014 Mighty Nuer fight all 64 tribe, in 2015 Shiluk saw Dinka/Jaang color and in 2016 Equatoria realize your dirt. the more you refuse peace, the more you would be a losers. Kiir and IGAD are now begging Dr.Machar to allow 3 administrative areas to be appointed.

        • 18 June 08:10, by Khent

          Nueri Dial

          Your people ran to the Arabs and became their slaves because you could not fight on your own. You had the entire SAF, PDF, Murahaleen, LRA and the Equatorian Defence Force, and the Nuer failed to take power by force. Egypt, Rwanda, Kenya and JEM were not involved in this war. The UPDF only deployed a maximum of 4, 000 troops and they were confined to Juba...

          • 18 June 08:49, by Khent

            Many Nuer who rallied to the Nasir commanders did so because they thought that now the Nuer would rule as the Dinka were accused of ruling before. (The Root Causes of Sudan’s Civil Wars: Peace Or Truce, Douglas Hamilton Johnson)

            • 18 June 09:08, by Khent

              The leadership in Equatoria complained (in 2015) that Equatorian soldiers were removed from the military and that the army became a Dinka outfit, so you can’t use them as an excuse for your inability to win. Like children, you Nuer are fond of fables, myths and fairy-tales; your many years of slavery have made you bitter and blind.

              • 18 June 09:15, by Khent

                Salva Kiir made the mistake of allowing too many of you Nuer to return in 2006 -> after decades of serving Khartoum; you were integrated into the army and became at least 70% of the armed forces, which is precisely why Salva needed Uganda’s assistance in the early stages of the war. Paul Malong Awan then recruited tens of thousands of Dinka soldiers, and you lost all your headquarters...

              • 18 June 11:21, by jubaone

                You’ve never heard of Khatiba Tafeng, Khatiba Mukshasha, Khatiba Shakoush and how Equatorians saved the SPLA weakened by the 1991 split and near death. Garang was about to give all up were it not for Samuel Abujohn, Eliaba Surur, Obuto Mamour, Tomas Cirillo etc. Waste your time with jienge trash.

                • 18 June 11:29, by Khent


                  Nice little story, mate, but Dr. John Garang was saved by entire Divisions, not just a handful of battalions you claim were majority Equatorian. Equatoria hosted over a dozen Khartoum-compliant tribal militias, so your committment was not complete and was certainly not responsible for saving Garang. The brave men of Bahr el Ghazal did that.

                  • 18 June 13:22, by jubaone

                    Those were bloated and exaggerated divisions without fighters. They were primarily there to impress and give the feeling, all were numerous and armed. Kids, crippled, women were all recruited to give inflated figures. Some fled, others voluntarily submitted themselves to Muraheelin and Messiriya, others trekked to Equatoria. C’mon let’s be honest.

                    • 18 June 17:49, by Khent


                      You’re mentally ill. The Dinka apparently never provided Divisions of soldiers; the Khartoum-compliant tribal militias somehow prosecuted the war. The Nuer did the fighting; the Mundari did the fighting; the Bari did the fighting; the Murle did the fighting. Get a new hobby, mate.

          • 18 June 09:21, by Nueri Dial


            aahahah! you made my day with your crying walai! Can you tell me which front was SAF, PDF, Murahaleen, LRA and the equatorian Defense Force participated? Since 2014 until now the whole world knew that Mighty Nuer fight the whole SS and nothing has happen. GEM fight in Bentiu, check BOA video captured by George. Uganda in Bor. Egypt used gunship in Malakal and Pagak the rest were in between

              Nueri Dial

              Where were the Ugandans when we defeated you in retaliation for the 91 massacres? You idiots keep on whining about the presence of a maximum of 4,000 Ugandan troops and claim that without the Ugandans the Dinka would lose despite the fact that you were defeated in the 90s when you had the SAF, PDF, Murahaleen, LRA, Fertit militias, Equatorial Defence force...

              • 18 June 09:30, by Khent

                ..Popular Resistance Movement/Army, the Didinga, Toposa, Mundari and Lotuka militias. We defeated Riek’s forces even while fighting the SAF... a force that had 100, 000 fighters. The PDF had around 70, 000 men. Why did you fail in the 90s? You had a clear numerical supremacy and had the help of your Arab masters, so why did you fail?

                • 18 June 11:27, by jubaone

                  Like all jienges, a few NIF compliant militias has been used as pretext to suggest all Equatorians were militias and so were the Nuers. Bullshit. Jienges fled and and commanded from hotels "hotel commanders" and let Darfuris, Ingessena and Nubas fight. We have the records.

                  • 18 June 11:35, by Khent


                    You are a desperate clown. Darfuris? The Darfurians were the largest component of the SAF and were the most fanatical Islamists during the war; they only rebelled in 2003. You’ve disqualified yourself by including Darfurians in that list. Other than the Dinka, the Nuba and the people of Blue Nile were the only ones that fought in the SPLA in noteworthy numbers.

                    • 18 June 13:07, by jubaone

                      From your writings, I am sure you have never been to Juba let alone S. Sudan for over 20 years. Till 2013 a sizeable number of Darfuris, Nubas and elements of the SPLA/N were fully integrated into the SS army. Everybody could see them along the Munuki-Bilpam road while heading towards Bilpam. Stop writing rubbish, just read your books from afar.

                    • 18 June 16:33, by jubaone

                      After the liberation of Yei in 1997 and the capture of over 3500 NIF/PDF led by Dr. Ibrahim Khalid (the PDF mujaheed) Garang offered them amnesty to either go to Khartoum or join the SPLA. This was a cover up to start the JEM that later started the Darfur war while others turned into pseudo traders. Do you know why almost 90% of all businesses in Juba are in Darfur hands? That’s it.

                        Oh I see, 3500 Darfurians apparently did all the fighting for Garang after they were themselves captured? That takes the cake for creative writing. The Darfurians only rebelled after the Baggara tribes encroached upon and occupied Jebel Marra Massif in Darfur. Khartoum evinced its preference for Arabs over non-Arabs in these conflicts, as usual.

                          Those are the few that were captured in Yei alone and not other PDF Mujaheedeen from the various frontlines. The claim jienges fought it alone in our Equatorian backyards while we idly stood by watching is sheer bullshit. Jienges are known to embellish, brag and exaggerate. I am not disturbed at all. What now matters is booting you out of Equatoria however long it takes.

                    As tribal as Mr. Jubaone! Howe is COVID. 19 with you, bro? You were so silent and I thought COVID.19 got your big mouth. Be careful, COVID.19 is looking for people with underlying conditions and the cowards like you. Watch the hell out and stop hating other tribes.

                You jump from here and there! If you admit defeat of 2014 Dinka Vs Nuer and complain that you defeated Nuer in 1991, Just ask Bor and they will tell you what happen from Angry Lou Youth. Waraf was storm bu Bul Youth and Baliet, Khorfulus were storm by Nasir Youth. I have many Dinka slave as a result of 1991 with me now. Go into deep of nuerland, you will get village names in Dinka

                • 18 June 09:44, by Nueri Dial

                  There is no single Nuer village which was taken by Dinka. Most of people who joined Kirimnal since 2014 were Dinka decedent. Ask Kuol Mayang Juk of his relative Duoth Lam Juk who become Nuer just to give you recent update. Also Galuak Deng Garang including Mother and brothers to Chol Thon Mayay, Tor Munybuny etc

                    Did you leave Bor, Twic east and Duk on your own accord? Of course not. You were forced out, and you were pursued to your homelands and cut down there. Nuer areas like Ayod, Yuai and Waat were devastated in our retaliation. We reclaimed all the Dinka areas and defeated your forces in your own lands. No one could believe the childish stories a Nuer tells...

                    • 18 June 09:58, by Khent

                      After Riek’s forces committed massacres, they tried to move further South but Dinka soldiers under the command of Kuol Manyang defeated Riek’s troops in a large battle at Gut-Makur, a village just outside Mongalla. Riek’s forces were then defeated at Wuor Baar. Our forces then entered Dinka territory at Gem, defeated all opposing forces in Nuer territory at Kuac Deng...

                      • 18 June 10:05, by Khent

                        With Riek’s forces experiencing defeat after being pursued, hounded and cut down as far as Uror, Akobo, Nyirol, Yuai and Ayod. Why did Riek fail to take the leadership in 91? You ran to Khartoum and your Arab masters bombed us from the air with MIG-29s, SU-25s, MIG-21s and Mi-24 gunships for 14 years. How are slaves that returned in 2004-6 claiming to be warriors?

                        • 18 June 10:07, by Khent

                          There’s not a single tribe in all of Sudan [North & South] that doesn’t know that you formed desperate and shameful military alliances with the various regimes in Khartoum, with a clear emphasis on forming alliances with the SAF, PDF and the Misseriya and the Rizeigat Arab tribes. You’re the cowards. You ran to them for help, but you still failed.

                          • 18 June 10:24, by Khent

                            For men such as Paulino Matip and Gordon Kong Cuol, what matters is that they have an army to command, and they will ally themselves with whomever is able to supply their troops. (The Root Causes Of Sudan’s Civil Wars: Peace or truce, Douglas H. Johnson)

                              Your ’Generals’ were slaves; your ’soldiers’ were slaves; your entire tribe became slaves; and you only returned in 2004-6 from many years of slavery. This is your legacy; this is why The Rhino mentioned your love of food — and like dogs, food is used to control you.

                                Dr. Riek Machar had defeated you Dinka in general. 32 states Dinka were disappear like a cloud. Upper Nile will be run by IO. 3 administrations areas are disappear as well. You better stop disturbing us on this forum.

                                • 18 June 12:26, by Khent


                                  That slave (Riek) initially wanted 21 States and Salva Kiir wanted 32 States; the return to 10 States is the conpromise. Defeat Salva Kiir in Nasir, Pagak and Bentiu and then talk. Salva Kiir only agreed to this peace because a continuation of this war is counter-productive. Riek is militarily weaker now than he was in 2014.

                                  • 18 June 13:33, by Nueri Dial

                                    Yes, Dr.Riek proposed 21 state but convinced that they will be tackled during constitutional review but in 2/10/2015, your uncle came with 28 states again 32 states but was told that we should return back to 10 states but he was not in agreement and you Dinka said that you will rebel but what happen? No rebellion yet. Aging you threat to rebel if UNS is given to IO but no sign of rebellion

                                      Sleepy Nuer, we don’t have 10 states in South Sudan anymore. We have 10 states+3 big fat administrations with oil being out from Unity State. Is that hard to understand GARAMA.

                                      • 18 June 17:39, by Nueri Dial

                                        South South,
                                        I like the issue of 3 administrative areas you brought up.1st Abei is not fully under SS and the appointed person will reside in Juba or will be Ngok chief on ground. Pibor AAA has been there and we still call our country 10 states, the newly created was only Ruweng. Ruweng will soon be storm by Angry Bul youth and they will take permanent refugee to Sudan. Murle will go to Kenya.

                                        • 18 June 17:44, by Nueri Dial

                                          Now Kiirimnal Mayar is a done deal, next step is to deal with Bor and Murle. Bor will take refugee into Equatoria land and Bor Town will be rename as Ngundeng City and Murle will run to Kenya. 3 A.A are not equal to governor but bigger then commissioner. they will have the same power like governor of 32 states whom was using Bodaboda in Juba and some were under tree office like the one of waraf

                                            Nueri Dial

                                            Look at this superstitious, brain-dead Nuer dreaming of taking all these lands while still being entirely incapable of reclaiming Nasir, Pagak, Bentiu and most of the Nuer counties. Your youth will continue to die for no gain and you will become smaller than the Azande at this rate.

                                      We don’t need to rebel; we can remove the regime in Juba without rebelling. The Dinka are at least 40% of South Sudan’s population and will never have to play second-fiddle to anyone — especially not to traitors and slaves that returned in 2004-6.

                                        With whom do you refer to as "We don’t need to rebel"?Fact is,you are not a South Sudanese,let alone a Dinka,but a designated leech,an opportunist who is fully convinced in running his flapping snout,up and down and across the board like the godfather of literature.Give us a break!You are beginning to sound like a cheap concubine struggling for recognitions.I can’t help you mr.librarian!!!

                                        • 19 June 08:18, by Chiir

                                          It won’t hurt you and it costs nothing to just say " thank you Dinkas" for bringing the food (the country) to the table. Do that, bro; give a little appreciation. I know the Dinkas are bad people now because it is time to eat and there is no common enemy fucking us together. The next time we will have a formidable enemy fighting us all, the Dinkas will be good people again!

                                      • 19 June 08:11, by Chiir

                                        You said it all, bro. Arabs were taught tough lessons by the Dinkas in the 90s when the Nuers and Equatorians had run to Khartoum. Remember we fought hard around Nimule and we chased the tabs to Juba, we captured Yei and many more places. There were no Nuers at the time. That approves how resilient and steadfast the Dinkas were and that can come back if calls for!

  • 19 June 08:30, by Chiir

    My appeal to DR. Riek,

    If you appoint Olony as governor of Upper Nile state, things will get fucked up day one! You got to bring someone who can develop policies and forge unity among the people of UpperNile.

    • 19 June 09:53, by Nueri Dial

      You are very cheap, you said 32 states is red line, giving UNS to SPLA-IO red line and Now appointing Olony is red line. Why do you create something which you will not afford to maintain? Myself i want Olony to continue commanding Aguelek and suggest any Shiluk of his choice.

      • 19 June 16:12, by Chiir

        Nueri Diar,
        Come on, who is cheap? The 32 states would have been maintained if needed. The only thing that prompted Pres. Kiir to revert to the 10 states was only to promote peace. As with Riek’s appointment of governors, he is likely to make another mistake as he did with Achuei’s. He might want to please Shilluk by appointing Olony who only thinks about Padang as his only problem.
