The Warring South Sudanese Social Media Users Should Stop Their Cocks' Fight and Give Peace a chance

By Deng Kiir Akok

It's almost three years now since the war broke out in Juba on December 15, 2013 between the soldiers loyal to Gen. Salva Kiir Mayardit, President of the republic of South Sudan and his former Vice President Dr. Riek Machar Teny.

The war started in Juba and moved to States. And to the saddest, it moved to social media that are operated in and outside the country. Most of these social media fighters are having their bases abroad. How the war is being successfully fought on social media? They fight in this useless way;

Nuer in Diaspora: " You Dinka in Juba, we have finished your Mathiang Anyoor, now we are on our way for Juba so we could crush you with your president."

Dinka in diaspora: " Why did you run away in 2013 and on July, 2016 with your rebels leader, Dr. Riek Machar? You come and you will get us here in Juba, you will face us."

Have you seen that? All these Nuer and Dinka in Diaspora are the one fighting this so-called social media war despite the last August peace agreement. They are fighting nonstop war. If one reason well here, one will find that these guys in diaspora are just inciting violence so as the citizens would confront each other.

If at all these social media fighters were having good minds, they would have used media to preach the peaceful coexistence of the tribes. But to the dismay of everyone, they use it to spread hatred for the tribes. While they are busy there in foreign countries earning dollars or whatever for their families.

Neither of them had finished Mathiang Anyoor or will defence Juba. What's not good and the burning issue is that they use Juba as their battle grounds when the good number of them don't know to locate Juba. Don't export us your meaningless fighting that will only leave hatred for our tribes. The fighters don't negotiate to settle their differences in social media.

This war is being fought outside the country though there're fighters in Juba and in the states. But the war has its battle grounds in South Sudan. These fighters fear for the unknown to use their real names and instead they use faked names. Maybe they use fake names to make it difficult for the authorities in identifying them with their unethical contents they post on social media. Sometime, they called themselves freedom fighters. These fighters post bad contents on social media to destroy South Sudan.

They are wasting their time and energy to write useless contents on social media assuming they are fighting for the regime change. These fighters are just fighting cocks' fights and will never move an inch for a feather laying on the ground let alone removing an elected president.

It would have been better if they have spent their time doing other necessary jobs rather than to write nonsenses. Unless these fighters are hired to do this job. If so, then they have no choice but to do this such useless job to earn their living.

But for them to fight well and get credit from their masters, they should use the right channels to get their thoughts straight to South Sudanese whether within or outside the country. There, they should consider putting their real names, city and the country they're writing. Prove me right or wrong, if a man dies for a reason, then he should die with his real name on his forehead not on his backhead.

In conclusion, I have dedicated these below two paragraphs to social media fighters and warlords' consumption.

Why do you want to fight for your freedom using wrong names? To my understanding, You don't mean to fight for your freedom as you claim. Because you are fearing for your names not to be known by everyone that reads contents you post in every minute on social media. What if you succeeded in your fighting, will you change your names or not?

I wish I was the one hiring you to fight in your social media war, I wouldn't give you even a coin for your job done. Because you are cowards and weak to fight this cocks' fight since you withhold your real names while posting contents on social media.

Wedding in Juba - How can you tell if a bridegroom works for Nilepet?

By Deng Kiir Akok

The Nile Petroleum Corporation is a national Oil and Gas Corporation, which engages in oil exploration, production and marketing. Famous for its abbreviation Nilepet, has been a dream place of work for every South Sudanese that lives in Juba. Though the country's economy is nearly collapsing, the locals still see pastures greener in there. As a result, some of the institutions are losing their employees to Nilepet each day. Those job seekers think that getting employment at Nilepet will make them flourish like its current employees. Each one of them has a different dream from another and has to fulfil it once they are appointed in there.

For ladies that have got to Nilepet are by now driving the latest KIA models. Yeah, they have done with Arab as the saying goes for South Sudanese. Also on their wish list, include wedding in Freedom Hall, invite the President of the republic to wedding-Day, hire Juba-On-Time Studio photographer for coverage and spend the honeymo…

South Sudan should avert famine first and hold on building Ramciel

By Deng Kiir Akok

Famine by Dictionary.com is an extreme and a general scarcity of food, as in a country or a large geographical area. On February 20, 2017, both the government and the United Nations declared the present of famine in two counties of Mayendit and Leer in the former Unity State, blaming conflict and collapsing economy in the country.

Building Ramciel on the other hand, serves the vision of the late leader and founder of Sudan People's Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A), Dr. John Garang de Mabior who proposed it to be a new capital of South Sudan when he visited the place now located in a newly created Eastern Lakes State in 2003. His promise was later left unfulfilled when the leader died in a Ugandan presidential Mi-172 helicopter crashed in 2005. To revive the building of a new capital, the Council of ministers sat on September 2, 2011 and resolved to relocate the city from Juba to Ramciel. Thirteen months later, a young nation slid into civil war, which shut down …

Garang John of SSBC: The Man Who Reads Condolence Messages on his False Death

By Deng Kiir Akok

" R.I.P Garang John, wrote one mourner sharing his sorrow with Garang John's family. I can't believe Garang John has gone, wrote the other."

I was taken by surprise when I read a post wrote on his Face book page at 8.57am of January 8, 2017. The post appeared on social media while I was taking tea at Jubadit (Juba town).

" Garang John,  a TV journalist was found dead in a car with unidentified woman. He was shot four times on the head after the car was sprayed with bullets at exactly 09:00 PM few meters away from national television premises where he works, reads the post in parts." What the hell is this post telling me, I asked in amazement those who were around me.

The hacker whom Garang called a gunman went as far as convincing  public on Face book they used Garang John wall as their family members and for easy reach out of millions of his fans and relatives.

Just few hours after a hacker posted the saddest ever post, Garang's accou…
