    It is the most brisk, clear, and to the point news item: A Managing Director, Thelweng Mathiang Rok, is relieved of his duties after seven months and replaced by Chol Deng Thon Abel. PERIOD!

    The Honourable President who GAVE Independence, Freedom and Liberty to the good trusting people of South Sudan [1] knows best and thus not bound to explain his action. Anyone who is inclined to disagree should be prudent enough to abandon the country, living in exile, until his turn for the loot!

    Post Script By the way, it is cunningly shrewd for the photographer to capture half-facial photo of ‘somebody’ in the background! It says a volume and concludes about us AFRICANS. WE ARE WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TUNED TO BE!!! I beg you to prove me wrong (in a “civilized” manner)!

    Footnote [1] It is strange that INDEPENDENT FREE people, who fought for more than thirty years, cannot have indigenous name, thus clinging to geographical coordinates bearing the name of the old master i.e. The Sudan!
