        If you’re going to repeat what is in the article, at lease give the original writer some credit as the source. What you did is called plagiarism. You need to write in your words. No disrespect to you sir, but you need to be careful lifting someone else writing and make it your own.

          Hey guys! I compell you read names of 78 AMBASSADRS, one
          person names are fakes.For example, the word ’MAKELELE’ is a kishailli word meaning TALKATIVE. While the last name NYAJOK is a female name in nuer. And the prefix MR. for male in english. I believed this is how nuer pay themselves twice. So afterall, what gender would you like to put the person?

Why Unconstitutional, the Speaker/Deputy was supposed to be elected according to the Article 65 Sub: Article (1) which reads “The Speaker and Deputy Speaker shall be elected among its Members from the first sitting”.The other opposition would have been the Members of Aug.

The RoSS was liberated from what they call Sudan through long struggle. In this regard, we still need to liberate ourselves from such wrong actions and Dictatorship.

      I think that 50% of of appointees are having close relationship to some of our ministers and Generals.
      They are:
      1- Kuol Alor Kuol- Brother to Deng Alor Kuol
      2- Deng Deng Nhial- Brother to Nhial Deng
      3- Akuei Bona Malual Brother in-law to both Nhial & Deng
      4- Arop Deng Kuol Brother to Pieng Deng- General

      What I know is that, a president has a right to appoint who ever he think can do the job not for him, but for the nation. Besides, if you are from Bor, I don’t see the analogy you just use that you and Nuer are left out.
      You can not appease Nuer, nor will they appreciate your love.

          To assure you that those appointees will not execute their in the interest of South Sudan. 80% of those who were have blood relationship with numbers of serving ministers. only three among 78 are competent because of knowledge and experiences and they are:1- Majok Guandon from Lou Nuer 2- Dr Akec Khoc From Yirol was to be appointed by late leader in 1984
          Gai Riak From Bor County.

          Probably conjuring up list of appointees as Bor Dinka shows your lack of knowledge about the tribe in itself. Who does not know that people like Chol Deng Alak are from Abyei; Chol Mawut Unguec is from Western Bahr El Gazaal; Joseph Ayok Ayok is from Bahr El Gazaal, just to mentioned a few? If you don’t know Bor Dinka intact, please restraint from issuing misinformation on public fora...

          Magoor, really made me laughed. There are no double names in Bor such as Ayok Ayok, I doubted the last name of Chol Mawut "Unguec." Never heard such name in Bor. Also Alier Deng last name would be in doubt. It would be either "Rual" or "Aruai" to qualify it as "Bor" name, but "Ruai" is rare. Isaac, Dr. Akech Koch is Bor not Yirol.

            Chol Deng Alak is a well-known South Sudanese leader from Abyei. Anyone who knows the history of Abyei and the Abyei Liberation Movement (ALM) which was started before the SPLA/M would know who Chol Deng Alak is and where he hails from. Abyei Liberation Movement was separated Movement before the SPLA/M started and before they joined the SPLA/M in 1983 and Chol Deng Alak was leader of ALM.

        You gravely were either intoxicated with corruption or wine when you make this unbalanced selection of ambassadors.
        Not to complain of other Dinkas who took the elephant’s share, I just want to point out that other minority tribes have been segregated in this process.
        By the way, what were your criteria of appointments?

    Once again, our president had confirmed that he can not read public opinion. The faceless men and women behind the list had betrayed their public trust. The powerful men and women of our country are entrenching their grip on power by nominating their relatives to ambassadorial positions. Authorities in south Sudan must know that the poor masses are watching their manipulation. Death to nepotism.

    Mr. President job well done. Let’s wish well. And hope these ambassadors have superior acknowledge of foreign affairs to represent the government of south Sudan. Any deviation from duties he/she must recall immediately. Just remember what Lam Akol did ??. The government does not need another one. Its a relief James Okuk, Lam Akol, and Justin Ambago names were not in the list. Whew!

      Elinah B. Elkan,

      Really. I did not know that you love me, Dr. Ambago and Dr. Lam so much so that you cannot think without us. What a good supporter by default! Thanks a lot for always being with us even by method of negativity and hatred. It is your freedom and with no quarrels from our side! Keep on the good job though a dirty one. Yours Sincerely. No signature.

        Mr. James Okuk,

        Fist, you need to disassociate yourself from the 2 individuals, who shall not be named. This is not a personal attack but a wake up call to get out the loop!. Your college days are over. You’re in the real world now so act like a grown up. You need to earn respect and not demand it by intimidation. I have no reason to hate you however, I have strong dislike for pomposity.

      Mr. Yasmeen,

      "Congratulations to Majok Guandong Theip. He truly Deserves this position". Nonsense, the word "deserves" has negative connotation attached to it. Either he is qualify for the job or it was a gift because someone got paid off. Is that you’re suggesting?. Please clarify to your readers, because this one liner of yours makes no senses.

    Dear Readers.

    Your opinions, reactions,and compliment about appointing Ambassadors by the President was fair and justices.

    First and foremost, my question is Why do you question the Presidential Appointment while the New Nation wants its people to be serve? what are your contributions? suggest what you think is good than making Hate Complaint and Speech.
    Think wise before your insults.

    By life.

    If true congratulations to the 78 Ambassadors who got employed with presidential instruction to the Foreign Minister to transfer and deploy them. Looking forward for more ambassadorial employment as a reward for having a new nation after SPLM golden liberation.

    But I failed to understand the difference and connection between tansfer and deployment. Not found in international diplomatic law.

      Mr. Okuk,

      Your contemptuous remarks—your "congratulations" can’t be sincere. In one hand you’re having doubts about the appointees on the other hand you’re congratulating them. Your entire apparatus comments want them to fail. Are you suggesting a "reward for having new nation" is a pay off to whom, all your readers know you’re being sarcastic. As for your last paragraph, what’s your point?.

        Elijah,

        What is sincere then? The point is portrayer of ignorance or incompetence about the bridge of reality and international diplomatic laws and norms. Am I clear or should I give you milk with fish to make you understand?

          Mr. Okuk,

          Sincere is being honest, and not act like muddy waters. If you’re looking for job with government of south Sudan-god help south Sudan. Sorry, but in my humble opinion you’re not qualify to be ambassador. You’re not a bad person but confused. If I have the ultimate power I will appointed you to a highway minister in the 10 states, and hope you will do a good job to travel in safety.

    Ladies & Gentlemen, let me draw your attentions please. You realy become to know that Dinkas are food lovers. Meaning, how come 98% of this appoint is from them.

      Mr. Ran Nathdial,

      Is this a comment or question?. If it’s a question will be glad to answer it for you?. It’s so obvious they are (Dinkas) greater in numbers. If you just want to demeaning "Dinka are food lovers" them you will never win this fight, and that’s fact. Just looking from the outside ... you people need to come together!.

    They are relatives to the ministers especially the grade 2 ambassadors, that is quite clear. I don’t doubt the illegitimacy of these appointments. But what can we as citizens do? Congratulations to those selected I guess....
