July 2nd, 2016(Nyamilepedia)  —– President Salva Kiir’s daughter, Anok, and David Deng Chagai wedded today at Kator Cathedral Church in South Sudan capital, Juba.

The high-class wedding was attended by the First Vice President, Dr. Riek Machar Teny, second Vice President, James Wani Igga among other foreign and local dignitaries.

Unlike the wedding of his first daughter, Adut Salva Kiir, in 2011 which sparked controversies for marrying a Ethiopian businessman and controversial arrests of many journalists, Anok’s wedding was conducted behind the spotlight.

  • Weddings,oh dear because weddings are too expensive especially for who are living in the West and divocres are on the doorsteps after a very few years. Why not Ethiopian businessman while rich businessmen corrupts with politicians in Juba. That was about money.

  • Very disgusting when Family are getting marryage with family in North Sudan and now Rich elites in South Sudan are getting marryage with their wealthy cronies.

  • Why women like money,they are good in South Sudan because they have no money. They are real EVIL,.

  • it was real fantastic and become bad to heard that new of shooting in same area where wedding was conducted a shame to those who are behind this.

  • MY brother Beek you had say it all. we don’t have leaders of the people, we have just selfish who attend their own needs. Looming spring of North Africa is on the the way

  • Congratulation David Deng for winning high competing marriage at this critical time of economics deteriorating in south Sudan God bless you!!!

  • Gatdarwich

    Killer nyankiir’s daughter wedding is no big deal and deserved no media attention.

  • Marriage is a gift from God. We pray for Anok, and David Deng Chagai Who have began a journey of life commitment to one another and that they may prosper in every way of life. God speed Anok, and David Deng Chagai .

  • South Sudan needs to disarm all the forces and enlist a fresh and rebuild the army with new ideology to work towards destiny of all the people of s.sudan.
