March 25, 2017 (JUBA) – U.S. President Donald Trump last Thursday has extended the national emergency on South Sudan for another year, citing continuous threat being posed by South Sudan to the United States.

The emergency was first declared by former U.S. President, Barrack Obama in 2014, a few months after the eruption of conflict in Juba.

The order which Obama first issued in April 2014 has now been renewed by his successor President Trump, who continues to share the same concerns about the security of his country.

“The situation in and in relation to South Sudan, which has been marked by activities that threaten the peace, security, or stability of South Sudan and the surrounding region, including widespread violence and atrocities, human rights abuses, recruitment and use of child soldiers, attacks on peacekeepers and humanitarian workers, and obstruction of humanitarian operations, continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States," reads the statement.

"For this reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13664 with respect to South Sudan,” further stressed President Trump.

The extension ensures that the transfer of assets, in the form of property or interests would be blocked for some individuals whose actions are considered to threaten peace in South Sudan.

The measure would also affect those who threaten transitional agreements, expand conflict, commit human rights violations, and target women and children.

It also included those who recruit and use child soldiers, attack peacekeepers and aid workers, and those who help donate to such activities.

South Sudanese government official welcomed the election of the Republican President Trump saying the American Democrats including its candidate Hillary Clinton were hostile to President Salva Kiir.

If at all there are some people killing the Nuers, then why are the Nuers still here in Lake states, Warrap, Wau, Malakal and here in my home town of Bor and no one is killing them? Fellows, open your damn eyes and grow your own damn food. Because we are going to get rid of the UN, UNIMISS, their sleazy NGOs and agencies pretty soon.

Now we know that the jienge scoundrel is evil in nature and nothing will get us closer to them anymore.

We have power because of our blood.I am in Juba, you are not. Then who is a real owner Juba? Someone who lives 8000 miles away from Juba or someone who is right now sitting in his house in Juba? You are dreaming in DIASPORA. Juba is safe, no one can touch us.

                Equatoria1, Equatorians migrated from Congo to Uganda about 10 B.C.. Then, they moved to South Sudan and Kenya about 12 B.C.. During that time, Africa was not divide, but people knew their territories. Also people were friendly. Therefore, Equatorians are originally from Congo not Uganda. So, you should move back to Congo and leave us peacefully since you are trouble makers.

So those accounts are only applicable to you,your Jenges & those around your Luaks. If your cattle could talk I’m very sure they would have corrected u straight away.

                  Well that is jienge history taught in your luak schools. In our schools we were taught no one knows where they came from but could be the rest of evolutionary process where they shed off their tails as monkeys and started to walk upright. That is why they are still naked, just eat, sleep and shit 💩. They are different from other normal human beings.

      There is not a single evidence of jienge tribal superiority. They mix up between having a large population and civilization. They forget over 30% of all jienges have jellaba blood. In Aweil e.g. most are bastardized Darfuris or Messiriyas. Most are slave descendants. That is why most behave like the jellaba.

    Now know the predictions we made before that don’t celebrate Trump’s victory that he will save the poor economy and bad image of JCE/Dinka Government. Americans are not thinking like your kraal boys. They can hit you. Riek is already docked in South Africa and the next is to issue indictment and arrest of Kiir and Malong by ICC. A matter of time, they will be charged.

Secondly, you may need to admin that you are confused & don’t know what is exactly going on here so you are most welcome to sit there until you figure it out. As for us, we are going ahead countering the fabricated stories of these idiots.
