      The president is looking for peace so badly, but rebels completely turned down his peaceful solution and start running around in bushes of South Sudan confusing him. But, I personally disagreed with the president since day, because whoever he sacked go straight to the Bush, we in the government are looking into this closely! So, calm down, and relaxed, peace is the only viable alternati

      When will Kiir be doing his job as president? Kiir is nominating, sacking governor(s), nominating and sacking mayor(s).What type of President is he. I do agree, he is confused if so let him resign.Failure is not shame. Get out and rebuild and come another time. He is still young.

    Riek Machar Rebels they always act like cheerleader when president Kiir removed or replace someone into the public office, they think that every person who is working with p Kiir is a stupid person or dumb person that can go and join them as soon as he/she gets remove from office, but they don’t know there are smart people more than P Kiir wants their names to be clean and they wants SSP to know

      that, they’re true leaders and they will never do anything to arm them. President of Egypt says, lion cannot eat their children and that is the true leader word right there

        John Akeen,
        Lions do kill their cubs for fear they may one day grow up to challenge and take over and so are natural fool and incompetent such as Kiir Mayar. Those who want to protect their good names need to stay away from rotten regime or be foolish majority serving a government you see not one of your own representing either in executive, legislative or judicial only to be damp like garbage.
