October 6, 2017 (JUBA)- South Sudan President Salva Kiir on Friday pledged unconditional support to the national dialogue, saying it was the option the country could stop the war and resolve all the grievances.

“My office is open anytime for any support you need to make this important process succeed. The people and the whole world is watching how you will conduct it”, said president Kiir.

The South Sudanese leader made comments while receiving the first document from the leadership of the National Dialogue Committee during a meeting with the members of the National Dialogue Committee. The Co-chair of the committee, Abel Alier and Angelo Beda paid the visit to the state house at which President Kiir appreciated the efforts made by members of the National Dialogue Committee and encouraged them to continue to work hard for sustainable peace in the country.

Francis Mading Deng told reporters after the meeting with the president that the document includes an analysis of the problems facing the country based on discussions conducted by the National Dialogue Committee. Deng explained that National Dialogue Committee was an independent body and the President has given them absolute freedom from day one to proceed with their work freely.

The veteran diplomat stressed that the committee was now exercising its activities without intimidation or harassment from anybody and people during discussions held in an environment of transparency.

The independence of the committee permitted them to travel to South Africa to meet with rebel leader Riek Machar and opposition leaders in the region because they want every estranged part to participate.

President Kiir during an interview with the state-owned South Sudan Broadcasting Corporation said the dialogue process would be an opportunity at which the people would decide the system of governance and number of states they want in the country.

“The discontented, we invited them to come and put their position very clear on the table, this is why the national steering committee went up to South Africa to dialogue with Dr Riek Machar, unfortunately, Dr Riek turned down to see their faces and to know who were they and what message they were carrying . The same also those who are in Khartoum like Dr.Lam Akol refused when the same subcommittee of the national steering committee went to Khartoum. Other steering committee went to east African countries Uganda and Kenya. So if somebody who calls himself or herself an opposition to the government and such an opportunity comes, we believe that this is where you come in and state your position very clearly. This is how the national dialogue can succeed”, he added.

    “Its Dinka dialogue” not a national dialogue Mr. President. A proper national will comes when the guns are silences and displaced persons returns to their homes.

    Please stop dealing with wise adults in that manner. Do not think South Sudanese are fools. How can appointees of Salva Kiir and Jieng Council of Elders be independent and unbiased in deliberating the issue about justice and peace in our country? Please stop taking people for a political ride. This dialogue is a Jenge thing and it will be so until it is changed by patriots.

      Jur,
      These senile and mentally degenerated men who have influenced politics in SS to the detriment and destruction of our country have no business talking about national dialogue. This is luakthrash and bullshit, a jienge village talk that is bogus, stupid and without substance. Revitalize ARCISS fully and your jienge nonsense dialogue is obsolete.

          Jienge scoundrel and human thrash, keep this jienge dialogue to yourselves bcoz intelligent people reason and think while tailless monkeys irrationally act on instincts like wild animals. Don’t force anyone to talk to you if he/she doesn’t want. Take this jienge national shit to Warrap or Aweil. Equatorians have tolerated this jienge shit and idiocy for too long. Time over👊

          Did you see some of your jienge relatives begging along Hai Cinema road or the University road or at the entrance of restaurants in Juba Town, Malakia? Without Equatorians and Juba, jellabas would own you as househelp and domestic servants. Now you can at least eat something. Jiengeland has no wat, yet jienges are naturally lazy and stupid and can’t cultivate. Why?

      These jienge criminal enterprise,jce must be hunted down and eliminated one by one. We have their names, know where they hang out, eat and grabbed lands and property. By God, we shall get them, bcoz they all idle and squat in Juba and can’t return to their stinking and shattered luaks. We shall use any means to get rid of them bcoz it’s they that have destroyed SS, so we destroy them.

          We the youthful Equatorians must deal with these jienges very differently from our forefathers. I don’t give a shit to SS, if this has let our women/girls get raped, millions sent to refuge, our lands grabbed and jienges expect us to keep saying. "Ngun kata" No. The jienge is evil and is Satan’s child 👶 on earth. We must get rid of him or he of us. There’s only one choice.

        Replying to South South every week can get rather boring, not so much for want of the energy to respond as for a sense of deja vu feeling and emptiness of thinking.

        Over the last couple of months, with the utterly ugly and disheartening events in and outside the South Sudan, I have been asking myself..

          Eastern,
          For those who grew up in Juba. Around Konyokonyo market in the early 80s. Wani the Bari man went to bath in the Nile. Thereafter came a well known jienge mad man popularly known as "Luak mojnun". While bathing, Luak snatched Wani’s pair of shorts he hung nearby. Wani sprung out of the water and ran after Lual, both naked ofcourse. All were shocked to see Wani the sane man running after..

            Lual the mad jienge man. Wani should have let Lual just run 🏃 away with the pair of shorts, bcoz now the people thought Wani had become mad like Lual. So Eastern, the more you argue with such jienge scoundrels like South South, the more you argue like him. You are sane and upright and don’t reduce yourself to such bogus MTNS 👊

    ....whether there is anything left to say about the retrogressive rule of the Kiir-Taban alliance in Juba.

    When you follow socio-political developments closely and comment on them weekly, there is a very high chance that some future trends and happenings speak to your previous analyses and projections. The natural temptation then is to wallow in self-congratulation.

    With a little bit of my personal diffidence, I would like not to go that direction. But the point that must be clear to all South Sudanese yearning for change is that the writing has been on the wall for far too long now. We ignore it at own peril. We are on a slippery slope and anything is possible. The clouds are gathering. This is neither hollow sensation nor alarmist rhetoric.

This is a very good reason for you to ran away from South Sudan. It’s not our business for you to write anything you want as long as you are 10000 miles away from South Sudan. Trying to touch power, red line.

    We are stuck with and trapped in a fraudulent regime in Juba, presided over by the most deceptive individuals in the dual form of Kiir-Taban who say one thing today and another tomorrow.

      Let me tell you this. I do not want any bad thing to happen to any South Sudanese. We all know our government in Juba is not perfect, but when some people organised themselves and kill innocent people just because they belong to one tribe, I have no choice at that point but to join my tribe. We can sit down and overcome everything in one day.

        Can Kiir single handedly mismanage the country without the support of his tribesmen. Paul Malong mobilised a large number of dinka youths to fight in defence of Kiir. The JCE continues to issue policy statements on governance. Government institutions are dominated by dinka. So you want the other nationalities to just sit and watch. Time for reckoning and honest soul searching is now.

          You can go ahead and kill innocent Dinkas because they are majority in the government to help gain power in South Sudan, but do not cry when they fight back to protect themselves. We all know, to join army in South Sudan is a volunteer job. Equatorians refuse to join army openly and everyone in the country knows that.

            There’s no government in South Sudan. What we have is a violent tribal kleptocracy..! There is no army either. There’s no any innocent dinkas in the country BUT IGNORANT once. If those dinka you called innocent knew their rights, they won’t allow themselves to be used as firewood by the kleptocracy in Juba. It’s only when the dinka nation deny the kleptocracy free access to manpower.

                  This was to be expected..! Last year, when social media was awash with news about Kiir’s health, he was quickly driven around the streets of Juba atop a pick truck to dispel the news as rumour. You don’t go to bars and you don’t drink alcohol. Kiir and all the sycophants surrounding him drink like and crazy yet they deny it, a trick they learned from their djellaba counterparts in the days past...

                    The most interesting part is that, when your insults don’t make a change you want you will not be with healthy mind anymore because you will not manage that bitterness on top of failure, independent of Equatoria will take longer than the independent of Palestinians

                      You should rather ask yourself, what will we as Jienges do once Equatorians break away? Don’t think Equatoria is going to babysit and wipe your jienge asses as big "babies" that have refused to physically and mentally grow. No. Use your numbers and stolen monies to develop your stinking luaks instead hiding behind Equatorians for identity and solace.
