        Hi Tong,
        Every time you are hoping and calling for death to Kiir Mayardit, you are actually asking God to prolong his life for 12 months each time, and you are asking for God to shorten your life by 12 months. So, be prepared to face the consequences of your hopes towards others and President Kiir includedc.

    Any coup today will be legitimate and worth supporting from people of all walk of lives. It’s only genius that can change the history of South Sudan. Any officer who does this initiative with positive way forward will always be the greatest hero of Republic for generations.
