May 25, 2016, (SSB) — After all groups arrived safely in Polataka, we were not yet mixed with other children from other regions in Southern Sudan and the Sudan. The first group who left Bor in late 1989 until January 1990 was hailed from Bor alone. Each group began cleaned their own compound. There were old latrines used during elementary senior secondary school in Polataka. In every corner of Polataka, you can get these well designed latrines within and around Polataka. We also dug new latrines.

We began cleaned three big playing grounds. One freedom square among group two, group three, and marerek group. Another one was between group one, and the store. Last freedom square was between group five and group eight in the north, group four and group one in the south, while homes of Sebit William, Bol Dau and Dr. Deng Malual were in the east.

South Sudan Rebels: Nuer White Army Fighters

May 25, 2016 (SSB) —- Before the reward there must be a labor you plant before you harvest. You sow in tears before you harvest in joy in human nature who ever sacrifice to help you in crisis deserve respect and appreciation. When war broke out in South Sudan people thought that it is going to be a minor issue others who had seen 1991 war say it is going to be a disaster. Because it is obvious in South Sudan leaders are supported along tribal line and that is why there is tribalism in the country.

After the incident in Juba Dr. Riek opt to go to Bor since it is the usual place to capture after he rebels he gave orders to Peter Gatdet by then general Gatdet was the commander of division eight. General Gatdet did so by ordering all Dinka in Division 8 to be killed launch an attack in Panpandiar (SPLA) headquarters ‘Malual- chaat military camps around Bor, kills thousands of people there. Machar went and mobilized white army from Lou nuer to come and start a fresh attach on SPLA soldiers majority were children under 18 years of age fooling them that if you don’t go to war you will be blind according to biblical contexts of Ngundeng.

May 25, 2016 (SSB) — All of us need to develop our civil population not because we are as poor as you think but, it’s time to put in action all what we acquired along our struggle back as services to our beloved people in Aguok community and South Sudanese at large. There are so many ways we can develop our community without talking of Makiir money, or money that. As we have seen it in other neighboring communities bordering us.

What had happen in Gogrial town on 29/march/2016 was just a traders union Association and was not a community Association as it was claimed. Because  the leadership that was imposed on people of Aguok by the unknown  or outsiders people will be leadership for those who are known in numbered not Aguok Kuei community.
