    I disagree with the appointment of Anthony Bol Madut Bol as a governor of Tonj State, because he is too rude, alluding, favoritism, uneducated, a killer and nepotism who love to divided people even when it is simple thing. President Kiir made wrong choice. Victor Atem Atem was a good choice and best person on Gagrial State but Bol Madut Bol is unacceptable in Tonj State. There are educated in Tonj

    I think the appointment of gen, Anthony Bol Madut Bol indicated that, president Salve Kiir Mayardit is not looking for those people who are absolutely more qualified educators to help him shape up the meltdown that economic and broken government system. Bol Madut is a primary 4 late English and has nothing in his mind than killing people and there is nothing he will contribute to State building T.

      What else did you expect? Nothing and that is why your junk jienge states will remain just open luaks, chaos, disorderly and anarchy. Even monkeys have a degree of order and system. This explains the fact that, even without war in Jiengeland, with all looted monies, nothing ever will happen. You have to be developed bcoz, you can’t do that on your own. Worthless

    Salva Kiir made a good replacement in Tonj State, Anythony Bol Madut doesn’t play around when it comes to insecurity of people. Now that he is a governor peace will return to Tonj State, inter-clan clashes in Tonj State will stop. Bol Madut or Andrew Kuach Mayol replacement is a great replacement. People think they are not educated but they know the system of ruling people.

      Uncle J.
      Insecurity was been stop by former governor gen, Akech Tong Aleu. Bol Madut Bol had murders 36 people during the 21st civil war within Tonj communities but none from his community not among them. The governor should be someone who has education like Andrew Kuac Mayol, Akol Koor, Anei Kueidit, prof, Augustino Mayai Mourter, Mawien Makol Ariik, etc, but this man Bol Madut is stupid, rude.
