      We need to see positive things like this from both sides. Real peace has come to South Sudan.Next year, we will be talking about development in greater Upper Nile.

        Real peace will come only when respect for human lives is shown by all. The AU Hybrid Court must be established so that rapists, killers whether in IG/IO/NAS/PDM etc are brought to book and real reconciliation takes place. However, this is not the case now cuz the jienge regime don’t want the hybrid court. Killers still at large.

          We should agree to bring real peace first, then we move to others like hybrid court. You cannot start with hybrid court unless you want to kill the peace in South Sudan. Hybrid court these days is another way from western countries to colonize Africa. We have to be very careful about it,but justice should be shown in South Sudan. Real peace in South Sudan will last if we have justice.

          Hybrid Court was not created in South Sudan. So, we do not know anything about the hybrid court. We, as South Sudanese need to reconcile which is precisely what people do when they are seeking peace.

            Bullshit. Hybrid Court must be established so that no rogue criminals and bastards kill, rape and steal with impunity and think they can go scot-free. No. If that doesn’t happen, then we the honorable people must take the law into our hands. We will NEVER hesitate to hunt them down and kill them one by one or their kin.

      Kiir never released any prisoners of war(POW).All 20 plus incarcerated individuals are still sweating in NSS detention facilities.Others are afraid to have been killed by orders from Kiir himself.According to leaked informations,the jienge government wanted to pacify and lure Oppositions into believing the fake peace recently signed in Khartoum,more details coming up soon!

        Thank you for the update. Only after the IRC receives the freed political detainees and we get live video footage or confirmed and verified by independent journalists, all is just plain jienge bullshit. Trust only the dead jienge.

    You see, I have been saying all along that these predatory savages the Nuers and the Dinkas will unite. Yesterday they killed over 50 people in Bagari fighting is on going in Two. Yet this crook called Riek Machar is silent. Foolish Equatorians and Bahr el Ghazal do not understand.

      Whortti Bor Manza,
      I like what jubaone said yesterday.Let’s respect everyone opinion. We have two groups refused peace, NAS of Cirillo and PDM of Dario. We also have PDM of Lagu’s daughters and NAS of generals who want peace. We need to respect everyone here. If you don’t want peace, fine go ahead and do what want. If you want peace, fine, join the group who want peace, very simple.

        South South,

        That RESPECT needs to be wholesome; ancestral lands, culture and traditions need to be respected or there won’t be peace in South Sudan. The rights of Jachariah Ladu and that of Thakariah Mabior to their land and culture need to be respected.....
