Governor Philip Aguer told the council of ministers this afternoon during the swearing in ceremony of the new deputy governor, Dr. Agot ALier Leek, political advisor Lith Aluong Kang, minister for finance James Akech Yen Alier and Ayom Mach Jok the education minister.

Some criminals have started opposing the agreement signed between the government of Boma and Jonglei State witnessed by UNMISS and other agencies on 4th December 2016.

    If the Governor of Jonglei Bantustan – Philip Aguer – was speaking in Juba, the people would have collectively chanted: Walee!!!! This is a chanting for a liar, am told….

    Mr. Governor, Sir:

    Have you returned the abductees of 2013 attacks on your own people in Pakeer and Ajuong Payams? Stop hypocrisy; you are a failure acting at the directives of Mr. Kuol Manyang and your brother-in-law Michael Makuei Lueth who installed you there to do things on their behalf. In Jalle Payam alone, as you know, these raids have happenned several times since 2011. It is as if Mr. Kuol Manyang, who was a governor for Jonglei and now a Minister for Defence has not yet satistified his profound revenge/vendette against the Juet people since his assassination of Cdr. Thon Ayii Jok in 1987. Only God knows what it is for General Juuk since am not aware of any historical anomisity between the Juet and his Pathuyith subclans. His acts have been the ones of a desparate man trying to rise on the skulls of his love ones including that of Justice Martin Majier Gai Ayuel. I understand ehy some folks would want to decimate the legacy of Akuot Atem and his Pakeer subclan. In 1972, those who didn’t fought in Anyanya to tue South, were so disturbed abiut what thos man had achieved. Aquila Manyuon’s legacy, even if long dead, us hated by Kuol Manynag and his other followers. Could he (General Juuk) learn something from Dr. Majak D’Agoot who never condemn his Uncle Akuot Atem – an Anyanya hero – whatsoever!!! Learn that you still need the legacy of Aquila to be somebody, Sir.




    • Ayii Duang Arop, I’m confident you are severely effected by something that is likely to take your life away. How did you connect the past events to the current situation !!!!!. It seemed that you went to school where you would molded yourself to system . I failed to comprehend you from your comment . Did you learn how the organization work ? Did you open your mind to know how the government function ? Were you able to grab a little of the organized system work in school , or even within the family ‘s role ? To me, you look as a collaborator of those who are committing atrocities in the state of Jok-lei.
