    Dear STDs, do not deceived the people of South Sudan for your useless SPLM-IO in Juba under Kiir. If you are the real chairman of SPLM-IO why you don’t stop the ongoing crisis in the whole country?. The people of South Sudan know you very well as a liar and professional silly. Very soon you will cry with blood. Your children will not be allow by Nuer Community for any position for 300 years.
