December 29, 2019 (LURI) – South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir has urged citizens to prioritize agriculture to boost the nation’s economy.

South Sudan President Salva Kiir at the launch of the new harvest season in Luri county, Dec. 29, 2019 (PPU)

Kiir made the remarks while speaking to reporters at the launch of the new harvest season in Luri county, west of Juba on Sunday.

He was flanked by the first lady Mary Ayen Mayardit and the country’s first vice president Taban Deng Gai during the launch.

Kiir, the presidential press unit reported, also witnessed harvest of beans, groundnuts, sorghum, maize and rice produced by Luri Farm Ltd. and Freedom Farm Limited.

But despite the huge agricultural potential it possessed, only about 5% of South Sudan’s land is cultivated, yet the country also offers abundant water resources in the Nile basin, and forestry assets are plentiful, with tens of thousands of hectares of teak and other high-value hardwoods available for sustainable harvesting.

In 2012, President Kiir announced a goal to achieve food self-sufficiency in the country. That year, the agriculture ministry launched the national effort for agricultural transformation, and started to identify agricultural opportunities for foreign investors and agribusinesses.

    This is your family farm. You are telling citizen you capitalize on farming while your Dinka people are killing farmers and the land owners do that they can occupy that land for grazing cows. If Equatoria was left peacefully you will not have any complain of food. UN should stop this food program in South Sudan so that we see who can survive. Parasites you.

                      You are very angry from me. This is natural because I make big decisions to everyone in South Sudan. I will continue doing that as long as majority of people want me to rule, bitter? Hard? yes, for monkeys, it’s very hard and bitter. What can we do to help them? Nothing, let them continue with their hard feelings. Soon, they will come back to Juba with their feet on their shoulders.

                            Jienge kaffir, perhaps you should follow your Kiirminal uncle to start farming and stop being fed by WFP. Jiengelands are fertile and vast, but lazy savages are so used to being fed. Always looking into the skies, hoping for some airdrops. That is why most jienge savages have stiff necks that has affected their spines and subsequently their thinking capabilities.

I am happy, that your states are still like animal zoos and you will definitely need Equatorians to fix that. Its like Equatorians cleaning up a monkey 🐵 cage cuz the monkeys alone can’t do that.

You can entice them with free food like wild monkeys and they will willingly come. See how empty their shithole lands have pathetically changed into human zoos.

                  Recently, a jienge mother brought to Juba Teaching Hospital her 12 months baby without the left foot and urinary organ. Very strange. Apparently, this jienge mother must have consumed contaminated WFP than led to this gene expression. Now with oyol pollutants in their areas, we will witness deformed and deranged jienges. But who cares anyway? Lucky ones are already on the run 🏃.

      Led us to an independent nation! You lazy jienge idiot. Independence doesn’t mean you can now sit idle and be fed like caged monkeys. You are still being fed like giant gorillas, you still get your health sector serviced by NGOs, you still have your security sector overseen by UNMISS, you jienges make 46-50% of all food refugees, your education is paid for by UN. Hopeless creatures.
