February 22, 2017 (SSB) — I’m writing about General Thomas Cirillo not because I’m not happy with the situation to what happened to my comrade General Thomas Cirillo, but extremely upset with his advisers. The aim of this article is to caution what so leaders in South Sudan and their advisers. We cannot afford for a long time to keep misleading our great leaders like General Thomas Cirillo to fall in the hole.

In my personal view, I strongly believe that rebel or people who were or are still against the government, particularly his own advisers had misled General Thomas Cirillo into this mess. The question to us is can General Thomas Cirillo’s case is a great lesson to some of us, particularly those share ill advice to our leaders like as General Thomas Cirillo?

According the current news on social media, Kenya government has freezes1. 03b shillings ($10m USD) which were looted by General Thomas Cirillo.

January 3, 2017 (SSB) —- The beginning of 2017 comes with many promises for our beloved nation, the republic of South Sudan. I have read few messages on social media about how quiet and peaceful it was in the capital city of South Sudan, Juba. To me, it was a blessing and promise that the year 2017 is a blessing and a year of peace for the South Sudan.

Second, first vice President, Honourable Taban Deng Gai and number of minsters including honourable Kuol Manayang Juuk, the minister of Defence and Dr. Elia lomoro, the minister of cabinet affairs managed to visit a notorious area of Yei State to promote peace to the residence of Yei River. This mission or visit should not be taken lightly if we are all looking for peace and prosperity in our nation.

Thirdly, President Kiir Mayardit has called for the national reconciliation and dialogue for all South Sudanese people. To me, it is an opportunity for all us to bring peace in our country, our communities and families. President has done his job by appointing all well respected elders, in my opinion. It is now left in our hands as people of the South Sudan wherever we are to promote peace and harmony in our communities and in our country.
