    Recycling has no value. Yau from deputy Defense Minister, to wherever , minority leader to agriculture when guns are still roaring is not the solution to the problem of those who fought for their liberation from the north. Let me remind you Mr.Kiir, they fought for freedom, equality, justice and you have taken it from them after just 5 years of self respect. Time to restore all or leave.
