    Yes!!!

    If true, this could be the beginning of the end of the evil dinkocratic regime. Arise Equatoria arise! Let the mother of lions arise! One day the freedom and dignity of our people will be restored. This is the time for Machiavellian politics of the end justifying the means. Commander Johnson Olony has done it spectacularly in Malakal and left the dinkocrats gasping for air in Juba. What I mean is it doesnt matter where we get the arms from to free ourselves from Kiir’s totalitarian dictatorship. What matters is that we should get rid of him by all means available. Another bloody nose in Mundri will be just fine. Where there is a will, there will be a way no matter how long it takes.

    How brave you are to expose your cheap lair in the social media. Be advised to contact one of your supporter in London Mr Rumbogo to tell you the truth indeed if your rebels capture Mundiri because that is his home town. You even ashemed him. I do not know how he will struggle to put right the SPLM-in Opp reputatition in London. Right now I am in Mundiri so tell Rumbogo to despute me and we suprise you with another TV footage. Are you not yet struggling to accept the reality in Melut which you people tried to destorted. How shame to walk the street of a would be depolmat. You made the Equatorians to laugh and even now to reliase that all your talks are nonsence and has not truth in it. Melut humilating defeat of the splm in opp have exposed your lies and have damaged the movement reputation. Hundereds of innocent young men have been luered by your lies to meet their faith in grusome way. You lured Ted in America to go and fight in S.Sudan he now suffering limbless and non of you is now taking care of his family in America. What a shame. Will Riek travell to USA to confort the family or he has just luered him and that is finished.
