    All other positions for the state government are good, but 51 members of parliament for state Assembly are very many indeed and if it is so where shall we get money to pay them?

    This South Sudan’s government is not for South Sudanese people but it is belonging to people of interest only. It was clear when the former President of Sudanese Omar al Bashir noticed that, the rebels problem with her government was about money and the positions and there was nothing this is why he created five vices presidents just to make them too ashamed to the world.

    All people from either government or rebels nor opposition Alliance have no vision for the country by saying that, they don’t thinks about citizens wondering in the community. 555 National Parliamentary and with addition of national Ministers and you added 51 plus 17 each from 10 States and the others three Adminithree Administrators areas. How much budgets do they will takes?.

    I think the South Sudanese people are very likely to tear down this peace agreement and the leadership need replacement with new faces, because the ordinary people are not benefiting from the Khartoum peace agreement. The South Sudanese people will be happy to see Dr.Nhial Deng Nhial to set up the government system because he is the only person who that has more experience, skills, knowledge and

    I belief Abraham Nhial Deng Nhial will be the best South Sudanese President if the people wanted to have better leadership, smart government, good governance systems and he will repair Foreign policy and the country will move in the right direction hopefully if they South Sudanese want a good leader.

    There is no good person in this country to rule. The leader is still not yet born or still under age. Ever general now is wanted to be a leader by force in SPLM IG, SPLM IO, Former Detainess, SSOA and OPP. They all have no image of leadership to lead the people. Everyone want fill his or her bank account and the money are citizens. Shame on you all the parties mentioned above. Care for your own pe

    The rule of thumb to me is to do the little difference against corruption and and lawlessness and put up some system that works with the little power you have in your position. You wants a change in S. Sudan, start it in your position even if you are a guard or cleaner. Our trust have been betrayed beyond measure.
