    Our country is really mess up completely, if people go back to the polling stations to vote again for referendum today I vet 90% will vote for unity rather than separation. Civilians lives were far much better before separation. I don’t see away of coming to normal life under this crisis, if Kiir go more messes can arise if he stays no solution for the problem we have. That’s why I said our country is completely mess.
