The function, according to a public invitation notice, explains that the essence of the demonstration would to a send congratulatory message and affirmation of support to Donald Trump on his successful election as the 45th president of the United States.

This comes after President Salva Kiir appeared on the state owned South Sudan broadcasting corporation which he used a means of sending out his congratulatory to Trump on his victory.

The head of state offered to work closely with him to find a solution to the ongoing war in South Sudan.

He expressed hope that the new U.S. administration will be a new page and respectful bilateral diplomatic ties and cooperation to the mutual of the two countries and their citizens.

    What a wrong signal!! This is a Dinka demonstration. South Sudanese are in Ethiopia, Kenya, Congo, CAR, and Uganda are they demonstration too? LIES TO THE EYES OF THE WORLD.

      Yes, South Sudan government and its people had been supporting Trump candidacy since his endorsement time. So no surprise to do demonstrate in his support. I will also join there here.

        go and donate your free to clean street and farm if you have nothing to do. firstly Trump is not your president. secondly the guy is racist and divisive. you people are indeed epitome of what trump claimed about black people that they are lazy and the only thing they do best is sleep and make babies.

        pls guys don’t make fools of yourselves. even americans themselves are against electing trump to presidency. to me we don’t need anyone help but ourselves. we have resources and land, all we should do is to work hard. quit laziness and stop following others and work hard for your own.

    SSNYU, Donald Trump’s election victory is not South Sudanese president. Therefore, don’t waste your time, money, effort to demonstrate on street. You should demonstrate peacefully for President Kiir to step down and let other people take over the leadership because his time is expired. Don’t you think 12 years without roads, schools, hospitals, clean water, security, and disunity is enough for him

        eastern we would also like to see you denounce your support for Riek. cutting support to Riek and Kiir will create unity between warring tribes. kiir as no programs for the country and Riek is warmonger and mass murderer. they are both corrupt too.

      @ Dinka General
      I think you planning to make coup, for first ever to read your comment against Kiir and Government. On the same note, you are smart and wise and typical Dinka, off course Dinka culture don’t endure bullshit and I think you were supporting hoping that thing will be fine. At worse things gone from bad to worst and that why is you say today enough is enough. Fuel and food prices hike

        Dengda, Eastern, and many more critics about my position and feeling. To tell you the truth, I never agree with President Kiir after our independent in many issues. However, coup is not a solution to our problems. President Kiir is a great person, but his leadership is not taking us nowhere. We, the South needs someone who will build country and hold people accountable if they mess up.

    This is stupidity of the highest degree. Instead of focusing on your mess, here you are celebrating someone’s victory and to make things worse, the person doesn’t know you even exist. This is so pathetic.

    I will participated in demonstration on economic crises and high prices of commodities. Government puppets, trying to appease Trump to spare Kiir and support him. Shame on you will die poor and sycophant.

    I don’t see necessity of demonstrating the jubilation for having Dolnald J.Trump become president of America because the congratulatory message by president Kiir represents the country as whole.If you have nothing to do then be part of the procession otherwise keep away from it.Do you think Americans may do the same when a certain president of yours comes even those they think to be better? No.

    There is nothing good coming out of South Sudan as long as Kiir and his cohorts holding the country’s administration

    If these youth are wise, they need to demonstrate against the government failure to bring peace in the country, high price, no medicine, no road , no employment and so on and forth, and Kiir congratulated Mr. Trump on behalf of his administration but not South Sudanese.

          This is the work of the tribal chief to mobilize youth from his tribesmen to lure the trump racist administration to think he has support from a foreign govt known for thuggery, killing, looting, raping including raping American women. Like the racist Trump, Kiir is a tribalist demagogue & Trump is going to go after Kiir’s friends such as M7 and Mugabe so Kiir will not be an exception. Just wait.
