    That is a great mistake Governor Gregory. Why do you appointed Akot Lual akot lower education (GED) while there are many educated people who can advise you with legitimate information. Also Akot took millions and millions public money in P. Kiir’s office last time. Therefore, you need to rethink about your appointee.

    Gregory is not clean either. He was named in the Sentry report as being the beneficiaries of the mess and has had access to State resources by the virtue of being the in-law of Kiir. He must appoint criminal like him. Education is not necessary. All those holding senior positins are semi-literate or completely illiterate, that’s why the Dinka Government failed to develop.

      Fair Man, there are two ways a person can gain experiences or leadership. One, by hand on training which majority of South Sudan leaders did during the civil war. Second, by education. Akol did not learn any leader skill during the civil war because he went to Refugee Camp in Kenya during 1990s when he was P. Kiir bodyguard and then for asylum. He came back after P. Kiir took office in 2005.

        Continue... therefore, governor Gregory had gained hand on experiences during the civil war. Also P. Kiir needs to be very careful when he appointed his families to the leadership positions because if Dinka communities rise against them. It will be disaster to the entire families. Dinkas communities are silent right now, but it will not last forever. Therefore, sharing the job is the wise things.

          Fair Man, I don’t have any problem with people who are elected to the leadership positions because community chooses them. However, I have a problem with appointees especially when you appointed your family members. I never choose my family members as my bodyguards or promoted them to the leadership position. I can do both of these things, but that is not the proper way for leaders to operate.
