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 account was bombed with hundreds of condolence messages from his friends, relatives and his sympathizers. He had this post later at 2.30pm disapproving his death post.

" DISREGARD ANY RUMOUR ABOUT MY DEATH. IT'S NOT TRUE. I AM ALIVE. MY ACCOUNT HAS BEEN HACKED BY 'UNKNOWN GUNMAN' AND IT'S BEEN RECTIFIED. DON'T TRUST ANYTHING NEGATIVE. "

But what Garang has got here is that he had seen his mourners. Some of them perhaps were mentally prepared for his burial. He could say inside his heart to hell with those  who didn't sympathize with him. But as I observed, ah, bro you have thousands of mourners. You have really seen who could miss you in his/her life. But I could say no one minds about who will mourn or who will not mourn after one departed this world.

The moment I enjoy in the post content is when Garang John 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. What could be the worst to have four bullets in the head?

To make sense of this text why did Garang's hacker want him (Garang) to receive such many bullets in the head. If at all a bullet could hit anywhere on his body and could kill him if his days are numbered by the creator. No one knows when one's day will come. It might knock at the doors of those wishing Garang to die. May be those who masterminded the hacking will go first before Garang.

Lastly but not the least, you Garang should try to do something on protection of your account. Because it's not the first time your account has been hacked. Why do you always be a victim of hacking. I don't want you to compliant here and there on such issue next time. Should it happens again, I will be the first to share and type a big R.I.P (Rest In Peace) against it bro. Although you will have some blah afterward, I will not listen to them. In God will, you will live untill you grow grey hairs.

Opposite Greater Pioneer Operating Company (GPOC) building in Juba town is an incomplete five floors tower rarely called Amara-Pagan and falls south of Al-atiek Mosque.

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…
