11 Secondary schools (SS), including six (6) outside the state boundaries, participate in preliminary matches since last Thursday, Oct. 29, 2009 ending Tuesday November, 3. The competition, describe as only forward, began at knockout stages where a defeated team cease to continue in next matches.

Four secondary schools fully participated in Bor town competition with a fifth private school, Alliance High, only involved Tuesday to challenge final losers, Malek SS, after championship was declared. Bor Secondary school is the champion of these preparatory matches.

Malek SS defeated Werkok SS by 4-0 last Thursday. Bor SS beat Dr. John Garang SS in Twic East by 2-0. The final match, between Bor SS and Malek SS ended in penalties by 4-2 in later’s favor. Bor SS was declared the champion just before Alliance High School, a privately owned one by Dr. John Garang Institute students in Bor held Malek to a 1-1 draw on Tuesday.

Pibor SS, suited in Juba, Ngundeng SS, Fangak, Atar, Ayod and other schools suited in Malakal but officially belonging to Jonglei state, will send best players to Bor early December, 2009 to join state team, Abel Manyuon, director general state ministry of education told the Malek and Alliance teams on Tuesday.

Mr. Manyuon pledges that a neutral body will do the selection to get quality players for national tournament.

Volleyball and basketball teams are also going be selected based on the recent competitions.

The state sport teams, according to officials, will be camped in Bor weeks before the tournament could started to monitor their health and diet.

Challenges like lack of organized football pitch and medication during playing hours are some difficulties still hooking sport activities in Bor, the capital of Jonglei state but government says it is keen to promote constructive leisure.

            Happiness is not a dress that you can put on in order to show that your happy, people can reveal their happiness in different ways, happiness is an indivdiuals internal sense of feeling. Your fool to think that i don’t have pride in myself. A man with strategy plan and aim of MBO does not need to show his layout to the outsider criminal who may target you at some stages. Do you think dinkas has ever been proud of themselves? where and when, don’t hide the killing, looting, ridding, murdering of innocent people and all the barbaric act of born to ruin dinkas. See yourselves as miserable community , since Garang die your poor illiterates jump into his position with pride of self benefit not South Sudan benefit. Point out your criminal behavours to the World is like telling you to sit on a nail. You just want South to be jumble like a rubbish bin, stupid don’t think that everyone is interested to live your way of life. Sleeping in cow dung and feeding with raw milk. Now delicious foods in Equatoria and our clean environement is attracking you virus(dinkas).

      Jonglei-Bor Woes aren’t the making of its neighbors

      BY: Isaiah Abraham, JUBA

      NOV 5/2009, SSN; I hear some people blaming loudly the government of Southern Sudan leader and the JongleI State Governor for failing to protect civilians there from its neighbors- areas surrounding Jonglei-Bor. Insecurity has become an issue in that state, especially within Bor Area. People are killed and their properties looted at gun points. Government stations are under attacks from unknown gunmen roaming the area.

      Generally, the security for the larger South is very poor indeed than it has been during the war. Innocent lives are lost everyday by those who want to get rich quickly or on sheer hate for others. But even if the fingers are still being pointed to Juba for its decimal role to curb insecurity and to protect lives of its citizens, the matter in Bor is primarily something to do with some elements within that community; criminals who are out to deny our people peace they badly need.

      We have heard unprecedented lost of lives in Wernyol and Duk few months ago, just to cite few examples. We had then searched for answers and only end up assigning blame to our government for failing to protect innocent civilians. We might be wrong or right, but perhaps somewhere in between.

      May be the cause-effect law could have helped out, if we mean really business. And delving further here, there is no way anyone can laugh over that heinous act of taking away lives in the aforesaid two areas of Bor. It stands condemned and an act of evil. Southerners can’t be allowed to be killed just like that, it’s pointless and a shame on all of us. This is particularly so when we need each other most and when in fact we are already masters of our own affairs.

      But take the incident in Wernyol for example, do you read anything behind it, the same way I have come to deduce? If not, then look at this: an incident happened at the same spot barely a week or so, before the violent attack at that Payam headquarters occurred. Uror County Cashier left Bor town with big money on his bag, routing on his way back to Uror County headquarters; he was mugged and he lost everything including the money for the entire staff there. The attackers remain at large despite some wind that they actually come from one of the Bor geographical area. Simply put, their whereabout was exposed but hushed by local leaders/authorities.

      Could that be the cause that brought about those deaths and destruction, and if the answer again is no, then someone must go on a research and find out the whole truth on what actually prompted that attack when the cattle camp wasn’t around and nothing special could be the target for the criminals who attacked that Payam.

      The same scenario is true in Duk. It was again an attack on the car carrying Uror passengers, they were violently looted and their belongings taken away before the nose of the government security officers. No action was taken and the attackers weren’t apprehended. In the absence of law enforcers, the aggrieved took the law into their own hands and the vicious cycle of reprisal attacks we are hearing now daily ensued.

      These are two wrongs and therefore unwarranted to write a blame on Mr. President on this matter in Jonglei. Something is clearly wrong there; attitudes and values are in the deficit, just to not to waste your time. This is not what our fathers said about Bor community; they were known to be competitive and achievement-oriented people. Albeit, the today’s generation (below my age I suppose) everywhere in the entire South is a drip of moral decay and effrontery talents that drags to the edge of abyss.

      It is indeed very unfortunate to every aspect of our lives; it requires elders to sit down and do something about it and even ask for divine intervention. We have an invidious generation of boys, with older people sidelined. Southerner below 30 years then could not stand the words of any other older than him/her, leaving his older one in the family; this has fairly changed, thanks to crop of young ones whose social reverse is their papers and guns in their hands. They say they know it all and can do it again all. What a shallow foundation we are building!

      Imagine a couple of nights ago, a criminal from Bor was caught selling two little kids to Murle at the Juba Bridge Junction. The kids were returned to their parents in the same area, where that human trader comes from. What do you say is happening in that society, brethren?

      There are stories that you don’t need to hear, including the razing down of Mundari homestead and total scorched earth clearance of the Mundari people on the East of the River Nile. Of course Mundari were wrong by attacking cattle herders, but the disproportionate use of force with an intention to wipe out the Mundari altogether was uncalled for and totally unacceptable. The two communities lived side by side for time immemorial and even Lou Nuer and Bor are cousins. They have the same characteristics and shared similar values. But first reacts only when it is aggressed and doesn’t engage in clandestine cowardly activities.

      Someone has exaggeratedly joked by telling me that 40% of Southern internal problems are caused by elements within Dinka community with a big fraction from Bor people. I didn’t buy it because a land that has produced big figures such as the two Garangs (the bishop and the de Mabior) and Mulana Alier surely can’t be mistaken to have characters that secretly steal innocent children from one village and sell them across to neighbors under the disguise of being abducted ones.

      Sincerely, it is puzzling, for a land so rich with potentials such as oil, animals and enough land for agriculture, and human talents. Unbelievable stories; what a pity! Where are the community leaders, the very people our elders used to tell us about their positive things; the same people who claim to be on top of things? If they can’t control their dirty emotions/affairs, how would they expect others to take them serious?

      I thought the Good Book , Matthews 7:3 talks about the need to check yourself before you correct others. What makes this community so small in the eyes of criminals that they can reign on them, we whisper. Was it by mistake that Dr. Garang was born there? Really, you can’t expect others to lie low in the flying face of moral decadence in that community.

      Bor people, can you now deny that you are the problem, not your neighbors? People deserted you for a cause and will do the same as they inveigh in disgust on every move you will make.

      It’s neighbors have joined the bandwagon and if anything, the change everyone wants to happen must begin in Bor. That land should have been an oasis of peace and love, not the other way round. There is no way Bor should be a pariah among many other communities in our beloved land called Southern Sudan. It’s just good! It has to have at least one or two good neighbors.

      We have opened up for/against you because people love you and want you to change. The South is abound with wealth everywhere, one section of our society can’t dream of running faster than others.

      People of Bor and by extension those who taint the name of Dinka, I have bad news for you: other Southerners will continue to hate you and God above will send troubles ahead of you wherever you will be! You will not escape unless you beat a 360 degree turn (change) of heart; you are animals who will never learn from your mistakes. None could stand such hallowedness anymore.

      The Nuer you think is violent and knows no laws is a million miles ahead of you, they have the fear of what is unethical and wrong and are men indeed. Just live among them and try by yourself how humane and gentlemanly are they. On the contrary, you don’t even have a single alien that is absorbed from anywhere, the same way others have done it, find out, why. By association therefore, I hate you ya mujerimiin of Bor and haramiin of Bahr El Ghazal!!!

        Your article are not fitted and not appropriate for the Sudanese sport tournament, I am not against your contribution, but your stupidity and short minded, luck of knowledge and understanding may lead you into the dead sea. you must think twice and review your comment before hitting the apply button. No Article had ever been posted under article, it’s comment that come under article.

        thieleling:

        Your post informs on the inability of some to engage topical issues.

        Why in God’s name did you respond to this news headline with total non-sequiturs having nothing to do with the facts related?

        Non-sequitur arguments are a form of distraction in which you substitute off-point hogwash by changing the subject.

        Your post is a non-sequitur because it does not follow logically from the subject-matter.

        Your post is also a strawman, because it does not address the matter at hand, but rather tries to attack a claim never made.

        It is a fallacious form of argument, meaning it is not valid, and does not need to be addressed.

        The only reason for addressing it - would be that the person making the fallacious argument does not know any better, and requires to be talked to like a child.

        You really have the attention span of a fruit-fly.

        Contrary to popular belief Dr. John Garang is from Dinka Twic-east, NOT Bor. The Twic Dinka are a seperate county from Dinka Bor, and speak a different dialect, with different norms and principles.

        Confusing Dinka Twic-east with Dinka-Bor, would be akin to confusing the Gawar Nuer for the Lou Nuer.

        Dr. John Garang, Akuot Atem De Mayem, and Arok Thon Arok came from Dinka Twic-east, whilst Kerubino Kwanyin Bol is from Dinka Twic-west in Bahr el Ghazal. Even Nyuon Bany’s mother was Dinka Twic-east.

        Dinka Twic-east is a reclusive, peaceful and principled community- it has NEVER embarked on an attack on other tribes, and it does NOT embroil itself on the accusations entailed in your article against Dinka Bor.

        Ps: Should you feel compelled to rubbish Garang’s home, please address (Twic-east). Do NOT confuse Dinka Twic-east with Dinka Bor!

      Thanks alot,Mr. Thon

      These are guinine news for high schools to arrive at testing their strength though it’s not academically. This is also a challange to the public school to have isolated private schools from direct participation till they play just a match. Maybe Alliance High School would have even defeated all the schools if they were directly involved in the games.
      The MoEST and D/G is to blame not to instill the same mistake next year.
      Hope lies in Private schools to make education a goal in Jonglei since the former sec/schools were arabized.
      Thanks to administration of Alliance High School, though you are the only private sec/school: challange the public schools in all and in education outputs vividly.

      Cheers,
      Messiah de Lonyjueihok

    it is really very exciding to read if not to hear from Bor, that my fellow brothers are still showing ebullience in sport and i hope that their bona fides to soccer will still be high as it use to be in places like Kakuma Refugee Camp. Otherwise i would like to congratulate the players and the administration of Jongulei to officiate such events, sport is a part of school curricullum and for student to be motivated towards their studies then they need to participate in various sports so that they pursued their goals.

    sport is an intrinsic motivator to an individual but it depend somewhat on an individual to take it as an extrinsic factor to himself/herself base on how he/she rate the type of sport he/she is undertaking. I would like to wish you all the best in continuing with soccer and not to wane it away.

    Dear Logic dogs and Thieling,

    Bark as much as you need but last you will curse the day you were born and I am really meaning it guys.Otherwise you have to look out before 2011 and apologize Dinka Bor community as well as Dinka communities.There will be a ground in which we shall forgive you and remember what goes up comes down.

    Sorry,there is no a day and it will never ever happen for Dinka Bor to compete with useless Equatorians in Equatoria and I promise.What were they and what are they at the movement?Is it because we have liberated them from their masters Arabs who used to fucked ladies from Equatoria day and night or what then?

    Equtorians are known for only one thing in Southern Sudan as well as Sudan at large and they will never ever change for ever and ever.They are really known for hunting rats and grasshoppers.I would have vomited if I had taken tea this morning for I have mentioned grasshoppers and rats.They are for cats in Bor and not human being.

    I am ready to defend Dinka Bor community though they called me a man of tribalism,I know very well that I am not,but constant dripping of water swears a stone.I am too tired of Equtorians and Nuer community.I tried to turn deaf ears to their day today comments but they don,t want to change.

    If Logic dog and my house boy Thieling are not mad they would have not talked against pure hearted and hard hearted people of Dinka Bor.

    Anyway,it is something normal and usual that if the child cries for razor blade then you have to give it to him or her.

      bor u re against it becoz the Bor are the masterminded of ur survival here in southern sudan. Look,at the time of anyanya one it was Joseph Oduho the president of sudan africa close door unit(sacdu) which has been changed 2 sanu,but Joseph Lagu came up with his self greedy aggranziement and he achieve nothing at that time so pliz short ur mouth from Dinkas and dinka Bor in particular.
