“Civilians are the children of government, so how come you kill your children? So because of many reasons he wronged the citizens of this lovely country, we fought him and we will continue to fight him till he steps aside from the chair’’ He continued.
Meanwhile, two Sub chiefs of Kotkea Payam, Mr Tut Thichuong Lual and Bile Reath Tongyik appreciated the SPLM/SPLA Leadership for listening to their concerns.
