The so-called SPLM-IO Advanced Team plus their next Designated Vice President should have been force to accept Tolerance Support with out having ministers in the so-called Transitional Government Of National Unity because they have no respect for the government and people of South Sudan,but yes they are from South Sudan where nobody care of people.They should have only Support Kiir’s Cabinet until they have value of people.

I have told you that this country will never be the same again, but you always say it will never happen. It is happening right in eyes, nothing you can do but only cry as always. Reforms was on the top of my predictions and it is going to be passed, starting from tomorrow.

Welcome to Juba Dr. Riak, welcome home comrade Alfred Lado Gore……………..Reforms, reforms and reforms is what this country wants most. We start it tomorrow morning.

I am not like you who only watch government money,i don’t even care of government.

Beek December 20, 2015 at 12:46 pm

Barking about what while majority of our people are not at UMISS camps across the country. What Riek is going to change then,let us wait and see.

Freedom Fighters Movement-SPLA-IO, will and shall unreservedly implement the complete overhaul of the direly needed reforms in the security and defense sectors in South Sudan period.

Museveni, Malik Agar, and the Darfur rebels, will and shall imminently-permanently be evicted from South Sudan territories.

NO MORE wasteful-treacherous spending of national resources on hiring MERCENARIES period.

Bye bye-farewell to the mercenaries, traitorous Jenges.

oh beek the poor boy,

please try to keep your words. all these months you have insulting the peace loving people in many stupid words. you have been saying you are a strong dinka boy of the strong dinka triblism and dinkacoracy government. And just today you change your language the you do not care about your government. You told me you will send me into prison. Please keep your words and let us start now.

Yes I know very well that any of you is not in the UNMISS camps. And this is the reason why we must have reforms. Just know you are not going to keep us in the camp forever……………..At the other hand, I want you to know very clearly that I am not a nuer but I chosen to be among them because I am from GREATER EQUATORIA and all love peace. This is not a joke as you take it. The Unity Gov is going to be formed, followed by rapid reforms and definately the IDPs will come out of the camps. The coming of the IDPs out of the camps will show you that the jenge are unable to keep your dirty hands on any body. Then the judgement of those whom commited the mass killing starts and they go to real prison not displaced camp.

beek the poor………………….the massacre in Juba has destroyed the image of jenge completely. This event is commemirated all over the world even in Kampala and more the celebration of any jenge, this could have made you understand that the rest tribes of this country already hate you. A fair election is going to take place and not any body is going to vote for you. You do know not about this just because you are a donkey, but I believe you will understand soon for donkeys usually understands late. You promise to hunt me down, this time it is me going to hunt you. You already wrote you have killed many nuer in Juba. Please do not come to deny when faced with the truth

I am following the progress of the revolution of the NUER & some enlightened south sudanese. So far it is going well. Remember the your freedom fighters who fell to bring justice & democracy to south sudan. You have good leaders including Dr. Riek machar & others. Follow them. The leader should also check the heart of their supports & update them selves based on the feedback. Other wise, south sudan will not be the same thanks to your sacrifices. GOOD LUCK TO THE ADVANCE TEAM!
