Last Friday the South Sudanese government in its weekly cabinet meeting decided to stop the oil flow through Sudanese pipelines. On Monday the parliament backed the move and some rallies where organised in different cities besides Juba to support the decision.

At a press conference held at the state secretariat on Tuesday, the state Governor Bangasi Joseph Bakosoro said Western Equatoria is happy with the step taken and will strongly support.

"South Sudan existed in the past 22 years during the war without oil, and can exist without the oil since most people in the villages do not know anything about oil," decried Bakosoro.

He added that Sudan’s government had been stealing the oil for many years, and South Sudan has never benefited until after the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in 2005 yet what is given to the South has not reached 50%.

Bakosoro pointed out that some countries are existing without oil revenues, and having strong economy in place; citing Kenya and Uganda.

He went further to encourage the people of Western Equatoria to embark on farming activities as a way to boost the economic activity of the state especially this year in order to produce tones of cereals for consumption and sell to other parts of the country.

Furthermore, he urged the population of the state to join the rest of the country to hold a peaceful protest on Wednesday to back and support the positive initiative of the leadership of the Republic of South Sudan.

In related news, the Governor arrived in Yambio on Monday after joining his counterpart the governor of Eastern Equatoria, Louis Lajore Lobong, who had invited Bakosoro to attend his swearing-in ceremony and that of his new cabinet.

At a briefing to the state council of ministers upon arrival, Bakosoro disclosed that he held a rally with the people of Eastern Equatoria where he delivered messages of peace, love and unity for the people of south Sudan as a corner stone for nation building.

    The states that are taking advantages for 2005 peace are the three states of Equatoria. I supported that educational approached more than the greediness and selfishness in Jonglei, Unity states, and upper Nile states. In Jonglei, the only peaceful tribes are Dinka section but the rest are militia affiliations. In Upper and Unity,you still can not see Dinka attack others for food or cattle.

      Mr. Anynya One, Your comment(s) make no senses to the reader on this website. Did you say Mr. Joseph Lagu or Lago is master mind of the assassination of Dr. John Garang. Did you know Lagu and Equestrians intellectual had a meeting with Uganda president before Dr. John garang death. Are you suggesting there is conspiracy to assassinate the Dinka leaders. This type of language is very dangerous.

    I don’t a comprehend the reason why Equatorian ppl become happy and supportive about the decision made by Govt concerning oil yet their land contain noting of oil. Let the blessed tribes like Nuer-Dinka celebrate the decision . I m not segregating or discriminating pple coz I kno that oil is meant for the whole S. Sudan but I hate those folk from Equat who like to abuse Nuer/Dinnka ’s names in vai

    Abangosi
    I love qualities of leadership from Mr. Abangosi.He is the only man I knew who deeply enbraced his new country SSudan by encouraging peace, unity, love etc. Likewise, he warned rebels not to threatening his W. Equatoria as well as he captured one too. The president Kiir should sometimes lauded people such as Mr. Abangosi publicly as an example of God’s heart in people SS. God bless M

      Dear Friends and Neighbors:
      No family has gone untouched in this current financial crisis.
      Once stable providers are losing their jobs and homes — the elderly are struggling to maintain homes they have lived in for years — and our young are in despair, aware that the dream of home ownership seems to mean just that – a dream they will never achieve.
