    I was checking weather in Beijing today and it was a about 29 degrees. So I was wondering of why that idiot is wearing a hat in that boiling temperature.

      One wonder, if people like you ever went to school. What made 29 Fahrenheit boiling? If you convert it Celsius, it will give you only 0 Celsius, which is really cold. If you are jealous for the president visiting China, then you should have empathized yourself using different logical term. Savage beast ugly head. Bunch of parrot.

        I went to none Dinka school and we were taught that temperatures of 29 degrees is very hot. So I don’t care of how you calculated it, but Salva Kiir shouldn’t be at all wearing hat in that temperature

      forget the temperature, how about the 120 generals he promoted to whatever for a country that has no road, no running water, 80% of the population with no daily ration. the man is a moron nothing more. His priorities as a head of state are a mess.

      He does wear a Cowboy Hat always!!! I am doubted is he even take it off when he go to washroom, dinning room, or bedroom!!!
      Former PM of Sudan Sadig El Mahadi used to carry he microphone always; even place under his his bed so when he woke up, it was the first thing he search for! Not sure if he is still doing now after losing power to Gen. Bashir!!!
      Very interesting!!! Habits.
