  1. These news source is trying to create a tension between our people. No nyamnyam representives and other parts of Greater Upper Nile.

  2. The same people who caused the war have appointed themselves to continue the self imposition! And develop their clans, they will still do nothing to develop RSS, all the civilians who have been attacking fellow civilians basing on tribes should learn that thats political bastards are only self interests. Am tired of appointments

  3. There is nothing changed they are same thives coming back to enjoy with their children after they kill our beloved youth who joined the army because of unemployment due to personalization of public institutions and corruption but
    God will judge.

  4. So that is what they call formation of goverment of national unity equatorians are not even named in the goverment list so we are just waiting for the fedral goverment so that we have our own well structure goverment for peace and developent of beautiful fedral states of equatoria and it must be.

  5. Will the so call TGoNU compensate the citizens after forming this filthy government.
    All the time, wrong people in the wrong position.
    Am tired with the old goons systems.
    May change come soon.
    Meanwhile what I want is peace to prevail sooner more than it is later.

  6. Oh , but why SPLA IO are not given their positions that were been allocated to them in Ethiopian agreement ,it seem as there is something like hidden points with this cabinets ministries that were been announce by kiir govt

  7. Ministry of Land, housing and Urban Development and Ministry of housing and Urban Development is in both government and IO. to me they are of less difference.

  8. I bases my comment on IGAD+,not to oblige the TGONU under consideration of the Salva Kiir’s gov’ must be firm of the transitional government of national unity principles.Both waring parties are under formation TGONU no supremacy to any of the party as an eligitemacy law activist out of TGONU.Salva Kiir is unconstitutional president until formation of national unity is done and the draft constitution for national unity shall be justify where he will act as chairman of national unity under the articles of TGONU law.

  9. Bro Teng, padang are not United, how can you recognized someone who doesn’t know him or her self? See what the governor of Ruweng state did is completely awkward. Nepotism and clanism. Who is going to clap his hand again, we must all be slave of Nuer and BarElgazal.

  10. Call it Government of National Disunity (GoNDU). For this time, it is going to be the rest against the Chiefs. Hey S Sudan comprises of 64 tribes if want it put that way.

    Come on there forks in the government nominees who do not even know where to start from…….(you who i am talking about)…alas, they might only be thinking of adding more V 8s and the list of their wives……and yes, the other maths continues.

    1. You’re right brother. South Sudan needs savages, but Equatorians are not. They’ll need to start raising their dead warrior ancestors, or else they’re done. SS needs guns more than anything else. You’ll only be recognized when you kill lots of innocent Junubiin..God have mercy on SS!

  11. They problems are raising again in our country South Sudan sons and daughters.
    Our country is yet running with many issues, it will not going to stopping whispering from one end others

  12. The man who recruited and executed Juba massacre has been place temporarily as head of NS to cover-up any future investigations in the meantime. What after that, Hague to face the justice?
