  • That is not very important to me.

  • Mabior Garang is good for Water Resources and Irrigation.

  • Dear Congolese young women,why young Mabior’s Garang getting old too QUICK!

  • Gatdarwich

    This is a very good news. The formation of Government of National Unity evidently killed the pseudo 28 states. No more pseudo Killer NyanKiir’s 28 states or Patriot Dr. Rieks’s 21 states.
    Only the 10 states shall functions during the transitional period

  • We thanks the coming of Dr. Riak and appointment made in South Sudan, because people are killing other people as the fertilizer for getting position in government rather giving people services. my consent is to Gen.Lodu Gore, well you got you position and you seem forgetting you backbone. This not the end of the war, let Gen Lodu refer to his dairy, If you forget, your remaining life is in danger.

    Dear Beek

    Why don’t you mind your own business and stop asking nonsense questions on this website? You better use your common sense only to thanks South Sudanese leaders by congratulated for this milestone achievement. They have done an excellent by forming long awaited transitional government of national unity . Your congratulations our leaders for this important steps by putting your differences behind and giving peace a chance.

    • For those who have died for Top Position for that OBESE guy should answer themselves in Grave. Riek Machar and his group are back and they are now ministers. What can we affected from them.

    • James Mulbah

      This guy is not a tribal agent as few perceived. All Reik Marchar wants is a better South Sudan with an inclusive and participatory government.
      These two guys can work togethe if given a chance to engage in a meaningful dialogue for the good of South Sudan.
      And perhaps, the Kir/Marchar ticket in 2018 is the best hope for South Sudan.
      And as a Liberian who is following the story of South Sudan closely, there is hope for South Sudan with Kir and Marchar working together.

      • James Mulbah

        I am a Liberian residing in the US and following the South Sudan story closely. Reik Marchar is perhaps one of the best freedom fighters Africa has ever had. Show me his cabinet ministers in this transitional government and I will tell you who he is.
        He loves South Sudan and if given the chance to make any impact, it will move the country forward beyond tribal lines and all South Sudanese will benefit from his visions.

    SO THE LION IS BACK HOME? THAT IS GREAT. NOW, SPLM IO LEADERSHIP & MEMBERS, LISTEN TO ME. YOU MUST BE CAREFUL. ALWAYS REMEMBER THOSE THAT DIED IN THE BUSH WHILE FIGHTING THE DICTATORSHIP.NEVER ASPIRE PERSONAL GAINS DURING THE TRANSITIONAL PERIOD. GET UNITED & WORK TOWARDS DEMOCRATIZING SOUTH SUDAN. FEW SALVA KIIR SUPPORTERS LIKE MALONG CAN ATTEMP FEW TRICKS TO DISTRACT YOU & YOUR MOVEMENT BUT BE STRONG. WORK HARD ON THE GRASS ROOTS SO TAHT YOUR SACRIFICE WILL BE PAID OFF. THIS WAS THE EASIEST THING THAT SALVA KIIR SHOULD HAVE DONE IN DECEMBER 2013 BUT THAT SILLY GUY REFUSED & TRIED TO SILENCE HIS OPPONENTS. ANYWAYS BECAREFUL OF UGANDA, BECAREFUL OF FEW OF SALVA KIIR SUPPORTERS. BUILD YOUR MOVEMENT STRONG AND YOU SHOULD HAVE PLAN B, PLAN C … IF SALVA KIIR PREFERS TO MISBEHAVE. BECAREFUL OF PEOPLE LIKE GORDON BUAY ALSO. TRY TO BRING BACK THOSE OF PETER GATDET YAKA BACK BECAUSE THOSE PPL ARE INNOCENT. THEY WERE JUST CONFUSED BY GOURDON BUAY.

  • James Mulbah

    Did any one think that Reik Marchar transitional cabinet ministers was going to be an inclusive one? His rebel was thought to be exclusively nuer and many would think that 90% of his cabinet was going to be nuer.
    Marchar is the best hope for South Sudan. And it is now time for those who are against peace to give him the chance to build a better South Sudan.
    Marchar can work with anybody including Silvar Kir in building a better Sudan.

  • What we need is Federal system in South Sudan. Without Federal system governing, South Sudan will not go nowhere.

  • Let’s praise God Almighty for the final implementation of the Agreement on the Resolution of Corruption in South Sudan.(ARCISS).
    I hope that Dr. Lam Akol will not also sleep and let our country descent to other years of hunger and later on blame the leadership as it was done by the SPLM SG. Pagan Amum.

  • James Mulbah

    As a Liberian who witnessed fourteen years civil war after which Liberia became a demcratic and pluralistic state, I think South Sudan has a better future after this recent war.
    Like Liberia, you can enact a constitution that will be based on the president serving two terms only,let say four or five years each and leave after winning one or two terms to give a better meaning to the war of independence and the recent war.
    Leave the presidency after one or two terms if you win the elections and allow someone to lead in similar manner.
    This will make you a great nation better than Uganda. It will make you better than Bashair Sudan.
    I love Kir/ Marchar South Sudan.
    Please don’t be like Uganda.

  • beek the stupid cow…………

    I told you right from the begining that we do not come to Juba to knock down your remaining teeth. We are here for business. Listen carefully, Alfred Lado Gore is an interior minister. Dr. Riak is soon heading this country. You have now lost some ministries to us. What do you say now? Of course nothing you can say only keep your NYALAMA shut but do not forget, we are not yet done until FEDERAL RULE is established in this country.

    Amen, tolio where are you? You need not to run away from Juba. Join us so that we fight your uncles the jenge council of awirin together. Where are these elders these days.

    • Actually who is Alfred Lado Gore? Okay Interior Minister for you to fight crimes in Equatoria, sure crimes are very high in your Juba,but also make sure that he will disappear like the others in a less than three years.Minister to me like a doorstep. You are very very poor since you insulted people you never met. ( My small $€ retirement Guarantee in 27 years when i retired and i can go back and settle where in want in South Sudan). We need people,but not about money. I think live in the Social Welfare are you never work in your life.

    • I meant. I can go back and settle where i want,but i can’t say that i don’t care about people because we need each others and also authority is needed to protect people and country. N.B. Make sure i don’t care how much money the government got like you. I think you will understand what i meant with my wrong English Social Welfare.

    • Change the way you behalve mr. poor boy,former Social Welfare and never worked.

    • ring anthony akok

      good guys to heard some native commments & postive comments,for those who are saying that the comming back of riek machar to south sudan will make change to the peoples of south sudan,no change,no change & no change ,itis known by the peoples of south sudan that riek was appointed vice president since 2005 and he did nothing ,so now what change are you expected riek can do.

    Marchar is a true nationalist. You look at his list of cabinet ministers in the transitional government and you will know his love for country.
    And out of the ten he is allowed to name 40% or less than 40 percent are from his tribe despite, his tribe receiving much of the beating in the two and half reform war.
    And he allowed more Dinkas to serve in his cabinet dispite the notion that the war was a Dinka-Nuer war.
    Kir on the other hand allowed 50% or half Dinkas to serve in his 16 member cabinet. And Nuer representation in his cabinet is disappointing based on the support he got from the Nuer during the political reform war.
    This is the time to enact a better constitution that will not allow tribal politics to distroy South Sudan.
    The president should serve for two consecutive terms after winning elections and be allowed to leave in order to give chance to another South Sudanese.

  • James Mulbah

    Marchar is a true nationalist. And just look at his 10 member cabinet you will see his love for country.
    Machar loves South Sudan.

  • James Mulbah

    South Sudan shall rise again.

  • Bol Gatjang

    No,international community,troika,United States of America and United Kingdom,Norway and your allied .Please, please,I’m begging to keep your eyes on Kiir in South Sudan, the current moves of kicking out Mabior Garang during the meeting session was politically motivated. It was first step toward another intention for second genocide against other vulnerable groups . eventually, Kiir is supposed to be abide by the new constitution of TGONU and use free and fair appointment within cabinets but yet after he drunk, he acts unilaterally. I don’t even understand why you support the drunkard man to rule the country with no well written constitution in the first place?
