November 12, 2018 (JUBA) - President Salva Kiir received a congratulatory message on the signing of the revitalized peace agreement from Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta who did not attend peace celebration on 31 October.

South Sudanese government spokesperson and Information Minister Michael Makuei, on 2 November voiced his government disappointment for the unexpected absence of President Kenyatta.

He said they were concerned that the Kenyan president even didn’t alert them of his absence or delegated someone to represent him at the event.

The congratulatory message was delivered by the Kenyan foreign minister who was accompanied by Stephen Kalonzo Mosyoka, Kenya former top diplomat, nearly two weeks after the celebration day.

"The Cabinet Secretary, Monica Juma outlined that President Uhuru Kenyatta extends his best wishes and support to President Salva Kiir in implementing the peace agreement," said a statement released by the South Sudanese press service on Monday evening.

Monica further reiterated Kenya’s commitment to strengthen bilateral cooperation.

Kenyatta was also absent at the signing ceremony of the revitalized peace pact on 12 September 2018. he was represented by Juma.

The Kenyan president was very involved in the mediation of the peace agreement of 2015 besides the Ethiopian prime minister.

    Thank you Mr. President Uhuru Kenyatta for congratulating our president regarding the peace agreement, and for him to accept 4 Vice president’s just to end the sufferings in our country, and also we hope you’ll send a congratulation letter to Riek Machar for singing the peace agreement and for him to accepting that the people of South Sudan are suffering in their hands. Thank you again

      Your Ex:President of Kenyan, your absence from not attending the signing of our peace agreement and from you not to attending our peace celebration, it is not a big deal, why? It’s because we the people of South Sudan do understand that sometimes things can happen to anyone that can prevent them from doing something. If we were the one who were absence from signing our own peace, than it was

        going to be a very big deal for us. We understand that you’re not leading yourself, but you’re leading a country with its population, so 100% political problem can happen
        in you office any time, and we do know that you don’t need to explain it to anybody because it is not everybody concerns to know about it. We totally understand

      President Uhuru is with us 100%. All our neighbor countries are with us. It leaves no room for a monkey called Cilliro to operate in the region. He can’t come to South Sudan and hide there, we will get him easily. As for internet warriors like Eastern, The Rhino and jubaone, we should pay attention to them. They will die down slowly. These are the biggest coward people on the face earth.

        You’re very and very right about that.. We have 4 unwanted Equetorans, 1 is Jubaone, 2 is the The Rhino, 3 is Eastern, 4th is Thomas Cirilo, the most Animal. We have 3 as an internet warriors, their ugly names are jubaone, The Rhino, Eastern, those 3 are nonsense talkers in the public, and the 4th name is an a exhausted bush man who drink water after monkeys, he is easy to capture

          One people,

          First and foremost, Uhuru Kenyatta knows how to play his card very well in the trade duel ragging between Washington and Beijing. Kiir being the village boy, uses his raw emotions to fight the war not his intellect, which he badly lacks. Why don’t you morons forget about these Equatorian nationalists, whom you barely know and continue with Wani, Lumoro, et al....?

        South South,

        SPLA morons don’t understand certain things. Uhuru Kenyatta was busy readying Kenya for the Nairobi to New York direct flight. The tomfoolery organised by Kiir and mad people like you did not bother him. Kiir even tried to postpone his joke by a day but that didn’t attract the attention of Nairobi. Kenya knows which capital matters between Washington and Beijing.....

          South South,

          The village excitement that continues to blind you that so and so is 100% with us is the main blunter of tribal regime’s diplomatic charm offensive thanks to the filling slots in the tribal ministry with people schooled in diplomacy. Once a village cattle keeper is able to dress in the best pair of suits, there’s no guarantee he’s a diplomat!

            I like that! We Equatorians were known to be civilized and dressed up. We taught these savages how to wear "mayo abu nandhara" and not come to Juba na Bari naked. Now these savages are on 3-piece suits in the scorching Juba heat and we have no need to wear suits anymore. Otherwise, people wont tell the difference.

        I can only gleefully smile and enjoy how you jienge miscreants are having nightmares and sleepless nights: jubaone, Rhino, Eastern, Games etc..We are Equatorians and NOT jienges. You can control, herd and slaughter jienges like cows not us. FYI: Where is your fugitive and renegade uncle Malong? I told you, jienge rebellion is worthless. Losers

          You are under control. This is the only reason who ran away from South Sudan. We have it all, but have nothing, only computer keyboards. Don’t waste your time to talk, come down to Juba and meet me face to face, wicked and coward.

            Well, just accept that you are a foolish jienge trying to be clever like an Equatorian. As long as you don’t know where your village is, or perhaps your relatives are and can only come and look for food, accommodation and shelter in Juba, we control you. You’re simply a vagrant, squatter and homeless. We shall feed you like babies cuz you’re incapable in everything.

    Million congratulations to Our President Salva Kiir for handling professionally and bravely the bullying Kenyan President Uhuru. All Kenyans including their president deceived themselves that they can bully South Sudan being a young country and being landlocked. President Salva Stood his ground and Kenyan greed and bullying is melting like ice.Keep it up Salva Kiir.

    Who can forget the Addis Ababa scene where Kenyatta was pictured ordering Kiir to sign the fake agreement? Who can forget the red carpet hero welcome of the bloody Rebel Leader Riek in Nairobi in 2014? Who doesn’t know the hostile media war by Kenya against and to discredit South Sudan?

    I really thank God that I was not created a dinka by tribe. I would have committed suicide for being jenge, because it is very difficult to differentiate between them and the cows. Jenge does not know what is right and wrong, yet they claim to be real humans.

    Landlice, the Great Dinka Nation do not need to be reminded about their self-worth. Being part of God’s creation they are as important and as good as anybody if not even more important. We are happy that poor elements like you suffering from inferiority complex were not part of our Great Dinka Nation. The Dinka stood tall and proud before the Turks, Egyptians, Arabs, and British and will continue

    to do so before any race, tribes or foreign power till the second coming of Jesus. We all know how some tribes behave in front of Arabs or white people just like little girls before young men. Go and prove this point in Khartoum for those trapped by ignorance and mental poverty there.
