    Sunday the General
    Which military college or how long did it took you to become a general?
    To be a General requires you accumulate alot of displine so that you can command the batalion but promotted just in the bush for tribal purposes will not creat displine look at Banga soro he was promoted to filled the gap of equatorians who were less in SPLA during garang time He is still not a displine man today infact he destroyed western equatoria by imflamable language which let him into exile
    So talking of capturing cities in the boder which didnt exist is a false claim which will not meet any good but distruction
    Lies like capturing Lasu capturing Commissioner of Kejikeji killing of soldiers is a false propaganda even in liberation time SPLA didnt lie they always tell the truth
    So you sunday and the 200 false self promotted Generals by riak join Taban and you might have some of those stars

      I was talking to some cousins in Congolese Military Intelligence they have detained some of your tribal militiamen who cowardly abandoned their positions and crossed into Aba in Congo. Your kinsmen will be taught lessons while at the hands of Congolese Military.

    Mbote John Sunday

    You and the rest of the freedom fighters are doing great job. You keep up the good work. Your sacrifices will not go in vain. The enemy is underestimating the will of the people. It is matter of time before we deal them their own medicines.

    Sango nini Bana Equatoria,

    Oyo azi mossala monene !!. Liberation from Dinka colonialism is a must for every able equatorian. Too much has been done to humiliate, hurt and even murder the same people. Now is the time to spell to them their word.

    • Roberto says:

      Mbote Bismark

      Sango Malamu. Kiir ayoki lokota ya moto te. Ayoki lokota ya bondoki. Topesa ye bondoki. We ( equatorian ) must fight for our God given rights. No one is going to give us anything. We must claim what is ours.
