What is causing the second influx of Greater Bor residents to Guolyar Refugee Camp?

December 03, 2015 (SSB) – November 26th marked the nineteenth day since President Salva Kiir signed the Agreement to Resolve the Conflict in South Sudan (ARCSS). That was the end of three months of pre-transitional period.

The sponsors of the peace talks, the Troika countries of the United Nations, Norway and the United Kingdom released a press statement expressing “concern” about the delay to form the transitional government of national unity. That statement should have served as a reminder that time is running out.

G-10 at garang graves

G-10 praying at John Garang’s grave in Juba

December 3, 2015 (SSB)   —  I have to admit I was so shocked to hear that Rebecca Nyandeng Mabior attended church service at Emanuel Jieng Parish, just after two days after arriving to Juba, South Sudan with some members of the so called G-10+. What is wrong with this woman? Doesn’t she think?

Why is everybody throwing stones at the innocent woman who was not happy with the idea of the pastor-in charge praying for Nyandeng? From my credibly source and confirmed by the church’s press release, the woman protested said that Nyandeng is not to be prayed for; because she is not coming back to Juba for peace. If she is, she said, why didn’t she come with her son, Mabior Garang?
