      She can behave anyway she wants, but SSPD is under Kiir, commander-in-chief. Ministry of defense is a political position. Chief of staff of the army and commander-in-chief will have final saying.

    Wow! What are the qualifications for South Sudan Defence Minister? Can someone explains to us, please? Angelina Teny is defence Minister because she is Machar’s wife. South Sudan is going down and it becomes a full fail state similar to Somalia. I’m very sorry for my country. There are loyal, dedicate, and generals who are more qualify than Angelina. This is a horrible decision on P. Kiir side.

    Khent thank you for reminding him.
    What make Riek Machar Teny failed in his life can be attributed to the Nuers people. Most the Nuers people are anti Dinkas and some others tribes in South Sudan. In Nuers culture, if you are a killer then, people will be proud of you and they don’t know this is 21st centuries. Look Games is threatening while, they have been defeating so bad.

      We’re dealing with people that are strangley proud of their betrayal in the 80s and 90s. The war was concentrated in the South because of their alliance with Khartoum and Arab militias; they handed the oilfields over to Ignaz — giving them the resources to acquire advanced weaponry; tools that were used to devastating effect.
