this a good time to see who to trust and who not to trus. the wew clearly visible.
Kiir kills your kin, women and children and you eat at his table?
what will it take for you to see? malong raping your mother?

lueth killing your father? and still you dont care…..
what sort of people are these men?
so blinded by greed and wickedness.

Taban the ultimate Judas. Sticking the knife in his brothers back.
no honor there. Machar should degrade him to Corpral. Corpral Taban, king of the loosers, without soldiers
