    Sad that Salva Kiir alone has become the gatekeeper who lets Investors to enter the country for business. The country is made to look like it is property. Tenders to allow potential investors to compete for success in investment should be the way because it enables transparency. In addition no corruption it the matter succeeds. Where is our NA?

        South South,
        Even the Kiirminal knows, his jiengelands are hopelessly backward and will NEVER develop. Afterall, all educated jienges have fled to Juba, Nairobi, Kampala or Khartoum leaving behind the weak, dull and sick. He has NOT even built a water-bottling factory cuz thirsty jienges would break in and drink the water free-of-charge. No company will EVER invest in jiengelands, mark my words.

          Aweil is developing, Gogrial is developing, Rumbek is developing, Tonj is developing, Bor is developing, Malakal is developing, Renk is developing, Juba is developing and all South Sudan is developing. Sweet, sweet.

      Jiengelands has been at peace since 2005, if investors wanted to go there, they would. But jiengelands are backwards, the people wild, dull, uneducated without skills, no electricity, poor infrastructure. So why would any profit-making company go there? Equatoria is the heart, jiengelands simply shitholes. Period. Tell me of one single factory or industry in jiengelands? NONE.

        Jubaone you are the nagging wife of Jiengeor Monygieng and as usual, a nagging wife is left nagging until she sits her buttocks down. It is too bad for you Monygieng nagging wife. You either accept your man and be content or shoot up bitch.

          You must have overheard your jienge father cursing and scolding your mother in such a derogatory manner. I am not surprised that such ludicrous sexism is the reason your girls and women are treated worse than cows. Hopeless jienge. Only if your brains were slightly bigger than your testicles, you’d be at least reasonable, bush jienge.

          The black chimp should focus on it’s job of cleaning toilets and latrines. It’s just a bitter slave😂
