April 26, 2018 (PW) — KWAK (as in the picture) is Kiir-Wani-Awet-Kuol conclave, the only top SPLM/A High Command Council members remaining alive and in Juba.

The KWAK Conclave has been hijacked by ‘NCPLM’, an intermarriage between NCP of Bashir and SPLM of Kiir, bringing us a hybrid system of the bloody ‘SALBASHIR RULE’ in Juba, with ten tentacles under handpicked governors thrown on the neck of the of the fledgling country, then mutated to 28, now 32 ‘Kiirlets’ controlling the periphery through ‘dekiirees’ and reign of terror in this era of error.

This misrule will leave Salva Kiir in the ugly pages of modern African history. I call it the ‘divide-and-ruin policy’, a predatory type of nation building process practiced through division of communities into ethnic administrative units called ‘states’ instead of networking these ethnicities into one monolithic nation state.

The negative sweep generalization of Gogrial’s communities is an act of dishonesty: South Sudan is bigger to be Gogrialize “haters should be told”.

April 26, 2018 (PW) — As the nation continues with it polarization, the situation continues to collide tribe against tribe, communities against communities and individuals against individuals. The war characterizes by political interest and tribal affiliation continues to deprive our nation a unity we have been yarning for since the beginning of the war.

However, the polarization has gone beyond expectation as some opposition figures specially the attention seekers, recognition seekers young aspiring opposition members who terribly failed to differentiate the differences between the communities and the government have it on social media that president Salva Kiir is working toward Gogrialization of South Sudan.

I wonder how feasible that statement is, but the nuisance knows better. I am not depending president since he is capable of depending himself but the truth should be told. Communities don’t appoint people to any positions in government. (more…)
