“The two sides recognize the comprise peace agreement signed August 2015 between SPLM-IO and the GRSS”. This is the funiest news ever. These generals were really bought by president salva kiir. Anyways, that is better option. They can agree with the government & eat their dollar but If this group turns against the SPLM IO – which is the only hope of the NUER & south sudan, the NUER & all south sudanese people should act decisevely. They should be rejected. Shame Shame Shame

Mr karab you did not know any thing going a round the world or in south Sudan therefore your malicious comment does not have a place inside south Sudan arena because those generals would not betray nuer people by going to government but you know word memorandum meaning you should never said were sell out because communicating with your does not you betray your community as you believe. Those generals fight this war fortitudely to reciprocate against government who kill their brothers and sisters and sons and daughters mothers fathers they should not forget that even if it will take them twenty years and solely person who implored the government to accept the peace was Dr Machar because already exhausted and he desperate to reclaim his position as vice President.

Dhoal Larjin,

I thought your leader was Gabriel Changeson Chang. What happened to him? We Nuer we are all aware that you bribed by Kiir like Lul Ruai Koang. Gatdet and Gathoth Gatkuoth, destroyed the unity of Nuer in 1991 and now they repeated what they had done in 1991 in 2015. Shame on you brainless Generals.

Iual deng December 27, 2015 at 8:17 pm

You seem like you did not know the history because in 1991 Mr machar set under tree in Nasir and he did not achieved any thing , but civilians fought each other until the fighting reached his head quarter after he realized is capable of anything he decided to leave to join Dr Garang at the same time he left all his generals scrambling in Nasir including general Gathoth other and some of generals would never trust machar again. Now some of you claim general Gathoth defected in 1991,but he was disowned by machar,but history now trying to repeat itself because since juba carnage, many generals fought real hard general Gatdet,Tang,Gathoth they captured many cities ,but they were lack of leadership who could supply them with good ideas until they decided to defect rather than washing the same thing happened in 1991 is repeating itself. Now Mr machar realized there was no way out he strived to implore the government to accept the peace because he already exhausted as long as machar in charge there will be no justice for the people who were massacred in juba in 2013.

War is at the corner, every body is looking to come to Juba. Fine you will test the bitter of it this time

Gat.darwich December 26, 2015 at 1:39 pm

This is indisputably a pure memorandum of surrender-negotiations and bribery payment arrangements period.

Let them dash-rush to Juba soon to licks and kisses the asses-butts of NyanMayardit, NyanManyanydit, NyanAwandit, NyanLuethdit, and NyanAguerdit.

Tut Kew did a very commendable and splendid job to the NaathNation.

On behalf of Gatdarwich and the patriotic individuals, please wholeheartedly and an unremorsefully says Bye-Bye and farewell to the habitual-defectors, Gen.Gatdet, Gen. Gathoth, and the cohorts.

Seriously speaking, Which one was easier for these generals, Negotiating with SPLM IO or Negotiating with the government? Nonsense!

lokiden December 29, 2015 at 3:39 am

we are so confuse with what is real going in South Sudan, if the country is becoming nuer or dinka in which lots of agreements always been sign. Now I am telling everybody ( Dinka and nuer ) to sign an agreement with God for the sake of the remaining tribes.
