August 4, 2016 (SSB) — Some two Months  or  so ago, the former SPLM/A-IO leader and former First Vice President went to pray in Emmanuel Jieng  Church  in Juba . He had a chance to greet the congregation.

There, people expected him to offer condolences to the aggrieved families of the deceased and to appealingly apologize for the consequences of 21 months war, instead, he defiantly and pitilessly made the Church a platform to give inciting or polarizing political speech ,  delivering his hypothetical side of the coin about the event of 15.Dec.2013, he landed, blaming his political opponents for the events that unfolded in 2013. Not necessarily, he too tried to partition the Churchgoers or congregation between him and his archrival by using parables and indirect kind of language.
