    Dear commentators,

    Let all of us join hands in appreciating and encouraging our kids for their excellence performances regardless of whether they are Mundri, Kakwa, Acholi, Maban, Zande, Dinkas, Nuer, Bari, Taposea or any other ethnic groups in our country. Remember!! Brothers fight and at the end of the day, they reconcile and rebuild their lives. No doubt we fought the most idiotic and senseless war in our history as people, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. We will soon emerge from the ashes and rebuild our country. Let put aside preemptive politics and embark on reconciliation and peace building in order to reclaim our lost glory. We are great people with exceptional cultures and traditions and we should hold on to our true selves.
