    Ya Taban
    There’s already peace in all junk jienge states. Just take your short-legged Chinese communists to these areas. I don’t understand this...."peace should come soon..." narrative. Must all these Chinese and jienges crowd in Juba? Jienges have at least 12-24 "pure" states for themselves. So?

      jubaone and Eastern,

      Two of you are not only traitors, but stupid enough. All Africa countries are doing big businesses with China and this does not take away their close relationships with USA. Anytime there is some good in South Sudan, a few Nyam Nyams will come out and cry
      "Oh, this is not good". Nimule is now developing and other places will get big development soon.

        Worthless jienge scum! Why can’t you take your Chinese communists to your stinking jiengeland? Cuz you are lazy, foolish and just dummies. Human baggage without use and have to be fed, taken care of like babies. Incapable of doing things independently. Even monkeys dare climb a tree to pick mangoes. Jienge!

          Do you know why foreign investors like to invest in Equatoria and not in jiengeland? Equatorians are intelligent, skilled, quick to learn, friendly and open. You jienges will remain the shitholes of SS whether you like it or not. That is why you’re homeless and likes to squat un Equatoria, loser. Worthless animal!
