January 7, 2018 (JUBA) - South Sudanese Media Authority Monday ordered Al Watan Arabic newspaper in Juba to stop publishing articles about the ongoing protests in Sudan.

Al-Watan which is supportive of the nationwide protests in Sudan used to cover extensively the political developments in the neighbouring country and published on daily basis opinion articles against the government of President al-Bashir.

Also, Sudanese charge d’affairs in Juba Isam Idriss Ibrahim wrote an article on 4 January in response to a feature article written by Al-Watan Editor in Chief Michael Christopher on 3 January.

The diplomat blamed the latter for his editorial line hostile to the government of President stressing it does not represent the position of the South Sudanese people, alluding that he supports the Sudanese opposition as he pointed to a number of Sudanese contributors.

Aware of the situation, the media authority in Juba summoned Christopher to appear in person before a hearing committee at the premises of the media on Monday.

Once he was heard by the media regulator, the committee handed him over a letter a letter where it referred to three articles that Christopher published on 3, 4 and 7 January and ordered him to stop writing about the political situation in Sudan.

The "Media Authority warns Al-Watan Arabic Newspaper to stop with immediate effect writing anything on topics relating to the ongoing protests in Sudan, which is an internal political issue of a friendly neighbouring country," read a letter signed by Sapana Agyuli Abuyi, the acting managing director of the media body seen by Sudan Tribune.

Abuyi further ordered the Arabic newspaper to publish an apology to the Sudanese embassy in Juba within 72 hours from the date of the warning letter.

Despite the independence of South Sudan, the two countries host hundreds of thousands of Sudanese and South Sudanese. Also, people in the two countries follow the situation on the north or South Sudan on daily basis.

        N Sudanese affairs are not our business. Eastern and his alike doesn’t have a say about fixing South Sudan. I wouldn’t bother to respond to him.

South Sudan is our country, we liberated it, we will do anything we want in our country. If you don’t like, go to the hall. You are cheap and coward. Barking like a dog is your job.

          This guy called Eastern is a big mess. He was in Juba during our civil war with fake Arabs. Fake Arabs were sleeping with Karo men inside Juba. The reaction of Karo people was that they formed militias to fight beside fake Arabs against SPLA, so these are the people we are dealing with. Cowards, weak, messy and monkeys too.

You have no shame of telling lies about Arabs sleeping with men because it’s something not uncommon in your community. You were taught by the Arabs.

        There is work to be done; wiping jienge vagrants out of Equatoria. All peace-loving Equatorians must support NAS/PDM/SSNMC that is the most urgent matter now the rest is irrelevant. As for "these tailless chimps" howling, they should try their luck along Juba-Yei road. Perhaps they will get some ripe mangoes to eat. But gaping hollow jienge nigga mouth 👄, that may be difficult.

      After intelligence encoding and analysis of several articles of both Pakuai and South South, it is clear that South South is NOT a jienge and therefore NOT a SS. Like all jellaba NCP, South South has been found to be either a Darfuri or Nuba fugitive. Worthless remnants of SPLA-N disguised as a jienge. If anything, he could be a bastardised jienge what we in Juba call "nus bul jellaba".
