SOUTH SUDANESE JOKE: Who is more Intelligent President Kiir and Riek Machar?

President Kiir met with the Bashiir of Sudan. He asked him:

Kiir: How do you run your government? Are there any tips u can give to me? I want to help South Sudan.

“Well,” said Bashir, “the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people.”
Pres. Kiir frowned, and then asked,”But how do i know the people around me are really intelligent?”
Bashir replied, “Oh, that’s easy, you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle.
Bashiir called for Turabi. “Please send Turabi in here” Hassan Turabi walked into the room and said,”Yes, your excellence?”
Bashiir smiled and said,”Answer this riddle. Turabi, your mother and father have a child, it is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?
“Without pausing for a minute Turabi answered,”that would be me.”
Yes, tamàam,”said Bashir.
Kiir went back home to ask his Vice President Riek Machar Teny
Kiir: Answer this. Your mother and your father have a child, it’s not your brother and it’s not your sister, who is it?
Riek Machar :.”I’m not sure, let me get back to you.” He asked all his staff in the Office but none could give him an answer.
Finally, one day, VP Riek ran to Taban Deng Gai. Riek asked, Taban, Riek: Your mother and father have a child and it’s not your brother or sister,who is it?”
Taban answered sharply, “That’s easy, its me!” Riek smiled,and said “Shukron yaki!”
Then he went back to speak with President Kiir.
Riek: beny, I have the answer to that riddle, It’s Taban Deng Gai! Simple just;;
Kiir got angry,he said to Riek. “No wonder South sudan isn’t moving forward, I am Surrounded by NAS BILIID SAKIT.! The answer is Hassan Turabi!”


  1. Well, Well , Let me express my take away from this joke, and what it means to South Sudan. According to what I learned and got known, the people of South Sudan have been weeding out their Hassan Truabis [ LAWMAKERS AND CONSTITUTIONAL WRITERS ] of the nation since the beginning of Sudan ‘s civil war . So, do not be surprised with what’s going on in the country, but this is how South Sudan will end up if you had decided to murder or break pillars of the societies in cold blooded and claimed that you are the right person for the job. Those of Martin Majier would have drafted or wrote a strong constitution now and people should have not been thinking of Hassan Truabi who was a writer of Sudan ‘s constitution. When you did a mistake deliberately , make sure there are consequences of that action .
