That is right. We peace and security so leave Machar and his groups alone
since they are not willing to join peace. We need to open a new charter
with General Taban.

Bravo! Peace is the only option that makes better changes than war. Let
Riek Machar keep mobilizing for war & us for peace until time for eletion
comes. Dr. Riek with his tribal politics & tribal supporters can never
succeed thro their rebellous & sectarian ideology.

Jienge Defender General,
Nyagat will remain a nyagat. Lets see how far they can go without Riak.
Oh yes! there is peace when over 1 million flee the country, over 5 m are
starving, over 780,000 internally displaced, Kiir steals over $30 m, when
inflation is over 600%. Taban does not care for Nuer cos he is a jellaba
