    I thing People have now come up with new tactics of terrorism in Juba. There is no way that attacks can happen like this and no suspect apprehended this must be planned. I think the plan as changed from unknown gunmen to terrorist attacks. This tells me clearly that there is no government in the country, or else they are part of the plan. Just remember what goes around comes around

    The question is do South Sudan has capacity to tackle terrorism act? The government pushed so much and now is new twist. There’s rampage weapons every where and this only need good leadership to control the country. Moving around pickup mounted with heavy machinegun can’t fight such terrorism act. solution is Implement ACRSS with Dr Riek, Period! and situation will be normal, temperature reach 100

    All these attacks happened every where now worldwide, they should be terms as government has failed but it is the challenge of the entire world, only people need to cooperate with security, harbouring such elements can harm innocent people so people need to come out clearly and let the security know them and such situation will be dealt with.

    No who said the murderous JCE regime in Juba can investigate their own militia? Who Said these thieves care about lives? Who said the government can be trusted to handle such investigations? Who said they can keep juba Secure? Isn’t this the reason why we need June to be demilitarised and a protection force deployed?
