    Riek, where are the state governors? Why are you blocking the appointment of governors? The people need some leadership in the states and you are blocking the appointment? If you do not know, your already scathed credibility is going down the wire because the mess that is happening in many states can be attributed to the lack of leadership and that will be counted against you.

    The people who support Riek Machar Teny are traitors and unpatriotic people. Riek Machar use to get 2% of oil in Unity State and he didn’t build a Secondary school in Leer county leave about the rest in Southern Leich State. Professor David De Chand said, Riek Machar love money and poor leadership refers to events he has done.

        I have known you guys for awhile, the Nuers people can’t accepted the truth even when it is written in the document. Are you denying the fact that, the 2% of the oil in Unity State were giving to three people, 1 Riek Machar, 2 late Paulino Matip Nhial and current vice president Taban Deng Gai?.Please keep singing about me but at the end of the day, you will acknowledge that, I am no

          Please asking your people near you and you will acknowledge that, I am not educated man but also uniquely respected and knowledgeable guy. You guys should be ashamed for building propaganda, lies, rebellion, destruction, killing innocent people and exposing the whole South Sudan nation. Please keep singing about Dinka but at the end of day, you will be the one to tell.

          Mayendit,
          So if 2% of oil in Unity state goes to 3 people you mentioned, then your Kiir Mayar is a slave to Dr.Riek b/se there is no way a vice president can get oil money from Finance officially as you claim. I knew now why you Dinka hate Dr.Riek like that, not only of his PHD but also you were thinking he own SS resources.

            Again, you missed the point here and this is why we told you you guys that, the Nuers people are lacking understanding and patience. They claimed 2% of oil money because they said, the oil is located to their Region. About PhD of Riek Machar Teny is worthless. We have a thousand holding PhD just right now. Third, your uncle PhD is an Old school and he left 3 classes unfinished.

              Mayendit,
              If you have thousand PHD then why do you allow primary Dinka ’’INU’’ to rule? I know only Late Dr.John Garang, Dr.Lam Akol and Dr.Riek Machar and late Dr.John Luk Joak, the rest are just roaming PHDs. And your foolish Kiir accepted the deal of giving 2% oil to individual? You are kidding me actually. Your greedy and low education has caused much pain.

    Riek Machar
    He did signed oil production with the Khartoum government led by former president Omar al Bashir and he was given a million dollars every Month when the shipment was completed and he didn’t help his militia who were left wondering how they will get food this is why the late general Paulino Matip Nhial took most of his fighters. Nobody hopes about him because we have known him for year

    The correct duration of Riek Machar Teny from watching is 35 years. I don’t know what respective he is talking about?. Who will respect Riek Machar when a very father’s and mothers Sons for his political actions so he should know he destroying his reputation and his records are going to hunt down his own family..I think vice President James Wani Igga will be respected forever and his families have
