“Eastern Equatoria State Deputy Governor kisses death”

And let him go and kisses Mr. Pope Francis (former Argentina scrounger) and his damned Catholicism in Rome if you damned can. But for all I care, you low lives are wasting our times and the South Sudanese people’s times. If you are tired, then go back to Democratic republic Congo (D.R.C) and be indoctrinated into Catholicism, come and come back to South Sudan and start your Catholicism again if you low lives really think you can and get away with it again
