    • “In another development the Collo Consultative meetings at Wadakona proceeded the following day to ascertain and define the scope of areas constituting Collo land in preparation for implementation of federal arrangement within borders of 1956”.

      for your information, there was no pachoda state before or after the independence of the whole sudan. your dream of having pachoda state will not be achieved. not all dreams are achievable just because you dream them, some can take life time to fulfill them.

      your Dr. of DESTRUCTION called Riek Manchar is using you ( collo community ) as a tool to win back Pagan Amum and Uyayi Deng Ajak but they are not fool to follow him. they could have followed him when they were released from detention but they did not because they know what kind of person he is. Riek Machar will never rule south sudan till Jesus comes.

      you might call me a tribalist person but the truth must be said. As a matter of fact, the border between Dinka of Malakal ( Ngok lual yak, Dongjol of Akoka, Nyiel, Ageer and Abialang ) and shilluk is the River Nile. your place is the western bank of the Nile, you have no place in the eastern bank of the Nile.

      Riek Machar renamed Upper Nile state to be Pachoda just to please you so that you can think that Nuers are on your side. any way, the matter of creating 21 states is the last thing to be discussed because it needs consultations amongst the communities and for this idea to be accepted is like the leaking of an elbow

        I don’t think you are a tribalism guy. According to the article analysis context, the meeting was attended by 57 in individual, how can this number persuade the whole Chollo tribe? Machar and his group want to create a Chaotic environment in South Sudan to allow them achieve what they want nothing more.

  • I like to congratulate Mr. Tigwok Hadir for wining the governor raise in Collo state of Pachoda. I give many thanks to Collo community for being the first South Sudanese community who conducted peaceful election. I congratulate the Collo officials who monitored and witnessed the fair election. I also give many thanks to Collo youth and elders who participated in voting for the leaders of their choice.

    I final thanks Cde, Muzamil Ojwok Ajak and Brig. Bopwoc Kur Papiti for recognizing Mr. Tigwok Hadir as a winner of the governorship race for the Pachoda State.
