    These is good thing if the government is not corrupted then, it must be divided to all 10 States correctly without bias in the State level. Last time on May/2014 the Col, Mawien Mawien Ngok known as Mawien Magol was confirmed putting his relatives in the National Security course while, he was denying others citizens within Warrap State. Such a people mention will not give a good things to citizens

    GOOD MOVE, I WISH THESE TRANSPARENCY WAS DONE LONG TIME AGO. MANY COUNTRIES OFFERED A LOT OF SCHOLARSHIPS DURING INTERIM PERIOD AND AFTER INDEPENDENT. HOWEVER, AS MENTIONED, THE CORRUPTION IN THE SYSTEM LET THEM GO UN NOTICED. HUNDRENDS OF VACANCIES WERE NOT FILL, EVEN THE INDIAN EMBASSODOR REMINDED THE GOVERNMENT OF S. SUDAN IN 2012 TO MAKE SURE THESE SCHOLARSHIPS DON’T GO EMPTY. OTHERWISE,GOOD J
