    Egypt is a very dangerous predatory country. Sensing the likely change in the thinking of the IGAD countries, Egypt is now using food donations to the SPLAnyors as a bait! I know the only good that Egypt sees in South Sudan and South Sudanese is the Jonglei canal. The rent-seekers in Juba will stop at nothing than mortgage the country!!!
