    Machar doesn’t have money to pay his thugs. So he resorted to sending them abroad to avoid chaos and demand for salary payment. Enjoy your missions abroad traitors...

      What kind of assignment is this to the Caribbean, of all places, and what kind of support can be got from these holiday islands?!* This is just a disguise for resettling these traitors because they have betrayed the people of South Sudan and are too ashamed to return. Riek Machar as ever has always excelled in failure, and his so called opposition is totally ideologically bankrupt. What a loser?!!

        Riek Machar is a total failure and good for nothing. He wasted time visiting IGAD countries hoping they would support him, but it was just a waste of time because his record is clear since 1991 that he betrayed the people of South Sudan and has failed politically, militarily and diplomatically. Even the west has turned against him because he is only fighting selfishly for power. What a shame

          There is completely no doubt that the problem of South Sudan is Riek Machar and his extreme obsession and greed for power that has driven him to become a wild monster and the number one enemy of the people of South Sudan, since 1991 when he became a traitor, tried to kill Dr. John Garang and selfishly worked tirelessly to destroy the liberation struggle, at the expense of the people of South Sudan

            If it was not for this traitor called Riek Machar, who betrayed the people of South Sudan, misguided his people and stabbed the liberation struggle in the back, South Sudan would have attained Independence, long time ago during the 1990s. Since Anyanya 1 when Salva Kiir was still a young man, he has been struggling for the cause of the people of South Sudan, not because he wanted to be President.

      Aguer is the right choice to represent the interest of all South Sudanese living in Australia. He is the only leader that said Kirr must be judge in South Sudan instead of ICC. That will give closure to the people he murder their love one. Congratulation Aguer Gual.

      Dr. Fool Hopeless Riek Massacre himself needs to be appointed President of RSS because of his political record of 1991, 1997, 2002 n 2005, not democratically elected as it happened in 2010 or will happen in 2015 general elections. In his mind as he did, he appointed himself shortly after December 15th, 2013 failed coup attempt and gave orders to Peter Gadet and James Koang to start killing.

        I know dat Dr. Hopeless Riek Massacre is imitating Dr. John Garang de Mabior. When SPLM Chapters were opened across America (USA & Canada) in mid-1990s, Riek sent Ezekial L. as his representative in Washington, DC and others in States while he was in Khartoum. Upon his return to SPLM in 2002 the two Chapters (SPLM & SSIM/Nasir Faction) merged in Nashville, TN n Steven Wondu was appointed in charge

          Ezekial took over when Steven Wondu was called by the late Dr. John to come back in 2005 and a different appointment. Whatever Dr. Fool Hopeless Riek Massacre is doing is not a new thing. It’s up to the diplomats who want such appointments for positions and struggle to hide the record of Riek which cannot be be hidden from the general public. Riek must accept peace, n be forgiven as usual.

            If Riek wants to continue with de war as he sees IGAD or AU is toothless becoz of heavy reliance on financial support from his financiers, then they must cater for humanitarian cost n the war will continue until the dancers took refuge on individual basis to foreign countries as Riek himself did in 2002 when he returned to SPLM without notice to his forces/supporters in Khartoum.

    Well, if you refused to signed peace agreement then you done. Such a money which you receive from Nuer’s contribution and Hilde Johnson will be finish soon. Just to informing Riek Machar and his rebels allies groups, Riek Machar had been repeated denying planning to make coup on 15/12/2013. Now there is a spy audio Tapes coming on 09/22/2014. It will shown Riek is a liar, stupid man and desperate.

Do u think we don’t know dat this is a tribal and senseless war led by your Godfather who himself needs to be appointed President of Leer, leave alone de whole Nuer or South Sudan where elections matters.

Waaaaawo. Haahaahaahaahaaa. We r here waiting, not only for money contributed by Riek’s tribal supporters in the Diaspora but also the contributors to come home n have a gud dance in the front lines, Man.

          On diplomatic front, it’s a war between govt. forces/SPLA n de rebels while in Riek’s mind (for tribal mobilization purpose) it’s a war between Nuer n Dinka as revealed recently by James Khan who defected from de tribal rebellion orchestrated by Dr. Hopeless Riek. His supporters in de Diaspora r divided over appointment of a Dinka bcoz it’s a well known tribal rebellion, no Dinka dere

            And Dr Hopeless Riek Masacre desperately wants to rule South Sudan at any cost without Dinka in his forces except on diplomatic front as seen in de appointment of a well-known drug addict Mabior Garang, who cannot even imitate Uhuru Kenyatta. This is de typical thinking of a PhD holder whose hidden agenda is getting revealed, not only to domestic but also to regional n international audience.

    This whole focus on positions as the basis and the single most important aspects on the sides of the waring parties is stupid and undermines the very democratic principles the war has been fought for! No more talks about democracy, no more talks about good governance, no talks about development, but positions and wealth sharing....what the hell is going on?
