    who will be blame,governor who appointed the commissioner or commissioner who ordered the army to kill the youth without clear reasons and the youth who took the laws into their hands without following the procedural ways.
    I do appeal to the community\relatives of sultan Madit Maker to maintain calmness and protect Ngop county from being destroyed by the relatives who lost their beloved son.RIP.

    Dear MYOPIC Troops,
    we people of Yirol are not "naughty’that myopic, reckless, barbaric and uncultured characterization is not in its place.
    i dont know why you people always rush to conclusions without diging deep to actually what transpired.
