    Why Kiir declared 10 March 2017 as a Public Holiday? Kiir abuse the Almighty God for nothing in Juba. Kiir will dies very soon. Who will prayers ?

      Kiir, Taban Deng, Wani Igga and Anthony Lino prayed this very Friday including many Bishops and retired Bishop, i.e. Paride Taban, Nathaniel Garang, Paulino Lukudu, Daniel Deng and many others. Why would you be wishing the President to die? You hatred toward him may be a blessing to him in other way. God doesn’t listen to the prayer of wicked people like you. Ya independent thinker.

        You must be one of people who don’t won’t peace to prevail in this country, because you have not tasted bitterness of war yet. Or else you you want to eat free think from the UN camps. All us in South Sudan are longing for peace and coexistence among our people. You need to repent for yourself or get condemnation.
