With due respect to you as one of the Elders of Collo people and one of those we the young people look forward for guidance, advice and aspiration, we are really shocked by this negative attitude you have taken to follow. You would recall that your first article was never answered to. I don't know whether you have asked yourself why? For surely, you were looking forward for any reaction from the parties you intended to hurt.



We were made to understand that your cousins and nephews talked to you very hard and tried to persuade not to writing again. Since your very near of kin spoke to you, most of the people respected that initiative and even those who were in the position to reply were eventually persuaded by this move and ceased to write. This was out of respect to you as one of elders of Collo people and the steps taken by your relatives in Sudan and abroad to alert you.


In my position as the Secretary General of Fashoda Organization and the submitter of the Urgent Appeal for Kodok Hospital, from where you based your "I stand for what I write" I am obliged to answer to part of your article especially the area where you talked about the 2nd All Collo Peace and Development Conference, the story of the presence of the President of South Sudan H.E Salva Kiir, His Majesty Reth Kwongo Dak Padiet and Kodok Hospital. That conference was organized by Fashoda Social and Benevolent Organization in collaboration with other Collo communities in Khartoum, Kenya, Malakal, Kodok, Renk, Wadakona just to mention some and not the SIC. I would like you to understand the difference. If you do not differentiate between politics and social issues at your age, then it is a tremendous disaster.

I personally do not know who the so called Shilluk International Congress is. In fact I am opposed to these ways of writings where unknown cowardice people write without exposing themselves. What they wrote was their own opinion, to which you people replied in the relevant manner. We the organizers invited both H.E. Salva Kiir and H. Majesty Reth Kwongo Dak as the guest of Honour and Patron of the conference respectively.During the opening of the Conference both did not come. None of our reports said that they were in full attendance of the conference. There was no reason at all why we should change the titles of guest of honour and patron since both have accepted the invitations. Even in their absence they remained the distinguished guests of the conference, and we are very proud of that. To make things clear to you, before the conference the delegation sent to Fashoda to give the programmes file were warmly received by His Majesty Reth Kwongo Dak Padiet. As for H.E Salva Kiir, he delegated one of his ministers who failed to come. He also donated an equivalence of $30,000 for the conference, which is now in the account of Fashoda Organization. As for the story of Kodok Hospital for which you asked for investigation, please go ahead. What we did is charity work and falls under our responsibility as a non governmental humanitarian organization. The donation was to Fashoda County and not to Upper Nile Government; therefore, there is no question at all about the Minister of Health to receive the items. It is not true that the nurse stood in the place of a doctor. What is meant here is that there was no doctor, for which the area deserves. This is a call to our people worldwide to sympathize with the situation and to experience the humiliation of Collo Kingdom putting Kodok as an example. On the administrative part, the commissioner who had to go to Malakal due to some border disputes with the Dinkas of Akoko, delegated the Executive Director to receive the items on his behalf. Mind you that the Commissioner was always present during the conference in Malakal, therefore he is aware of the donations.

The mocking way you compared between the authority in Great Britain with H. E. Salva Kiir and H.M Reth Kwongo is no more than sending a signal to H. Majesty that you know longer believe in his powers as King of Collo. You may have your own way of Analysis it and understanding but as for us Collo people if you are not one of them, Reth is King, ruler, inspirer, the guide and hope. It is through this throne that we have survived years of wars and through it we are one of the most venerated tribes in the whole world through our system of law and culture. As Collo we shall raise our king high even higher than any power on Earth. Who is now a liar, a misleader or a hypocrite? At your age I thought you would be an inspiration, but it proved now that you are just an opportunistic who found his way up in politics through luck and the absence of real educated people. If it is not you writing now that you are being labeled as an Abedh Ngony, nobody would have known that. You based this labeling on gossip from some people in Juba and Malakal without mentioning who those people are. Well, was it necessary at all to mention that if you have become one?

What you wrote about your achievements during your political life is the example the young and the pioneering politicians are after.

Udal Kur,
You seem to be in a different world. Mr. James Carlo is one of the 2nd all Collo conference organizers that donated items to the poor Kodok hospital and if you do not appreciate that huge step then you better hide and be silent in your hole. It is time to walk the walk and not just talk the talk. Now Adhidhyang is under occupation and we all need to unite to liberate that land, can uncle Ogilo take the lead? Have you read what was posted by Wad Awang? It time to do something and not dwell on negative talks that will not benefit the Collo. Dr. Lam has done alot for the Collo and you can not deny that unless you are from Collo Janjaweed who burn our land in 2004 and are nowing ruling in Malakal on SPLM tickets thanks to your good leaders.
Have peace!

Lam’s Loyalists are dividing Chollo Society and ready to open the gate of destruction in Chollo Society. This group of people must be dealt with because their deviant behavior could lead to very serious consequence in the Chollo society. It is shameful and ridicules because people like James Solomon, Dr. Peter Adwok, and Carlo James Chol, who continue making harassment and intimidation against Uncle James Ogilo for his opinions will not be tolerated in Chollo society. Let me make it very clear that you cannot and will not stop Collo from speaking out against those who continue to divide Chollo society and attempts to lead Chollo society into chaos for their political interest. These kinds of harassment and intimidation against Uncle James Ogilo and other Chollo for their opinion will not silence Chollo from speaking against those who continues to created political sectarianism in Chollo society. It is clear and obvious that Lam’s loyalists have made Pachodo Website a political living space to intimidate anyone who disagrees with them. You must change your behavior or seek elsewhere for refuge because Chollo will not tolerate your behavior any more.

Mr. Udal Kur,

Thank you for your uncouth comments. The language you used is no more than the one of the street boys. Be realistic, we did not insult Uncle Ogilo, but instead he did. Ours was just to answer him based on what he has written. When I wrote I was not writing the opinion of Lam as you think.

Please define to me who the Collo Society is? Is Collo Society what your uncle writes? What a shame. When your uncle agrees with those who burned and killed Collo People during the years of the civil war, this is the Collo Society. According to you, we who have been harassed and intimidated by the Abedh Ngony of your kind are now those against Collo Society.

Pachodo website is meant to educate, but since it is being misused by evildoers like you and Ogilo, then you should be answered through the same channel.

Mr. Udal Kur,
Please try to think with you mind! Who is Collo society? Are you, me and others with collo blood not part of the Collo soicety? If the people you so-termed Lam's loyalists are out to destroy Collo society then you are stupidly saying they are out to destroy themselves! Please can you mention who is going to intolerte Lam's loyalists and deal with Dr. Peter Adwok Otto, James Solomon and Carlo James? Don't be blinded by envious hatred (like the rest of Abethi Ngony) for H.E Dr. Lam and the Collo people who agree with his concern for the development of Collo Land!

Surprise! Who is now insulting the media and the people that use them? To me leaping upon other people with out know them physically is totally unacceptable.

You know, there is some thing we did know about this media thing. We did not know that some one can sign his/her name on the web with other person's. Let say someone used my name in the media, say some extremely gross abuse using my signature. What do you thing other will say about me? To me, they will response that I am a filthy kind of fellows. But it wasn't me, someone who just found my email and full name use it to hurt other. Media is not what we see in the real world.

We must not just take any thing we read in the media; we need to filter them better before we take any actions. And if we are confuse about what other say in the media, let's take them and store them behind our head for next time, and response when we are ready. If we response immediately, our response would be "take back your word(s)" or apologize for your misconducting language you use in the media, or rewrite or even back it up with comment say that you did no mean to say such things.

To me, if we want to insult other in the media according to what they say, the advice is to advise them with some hidden message that will keep him/them think(s) for a few moments. Or we could just email them we are guilty about what they say, but not in the public website like "pachodo.org"

We are not perfect, but we can be good if we winnow our "sorghum" before we start planning to prepare "Forage or Akelø" for our media

I think the language our writers tend to use these days have went below the ethics standards, which is expected in any writer as a social reformer, thinker, or community activist who bear good news in his or her mind for the entire community even to those who disagree with his or her views. We should check our language whether is an appropriate or inappropriate !!!!!!!!
Because even if you have a good message and you have communicated poorly as the language can tell, then you are driving people away from the mission, or other may choose not to take part in the process , not because it a bad idea but because of the ongoing confrontation .
Always a message carrier should have a patient and a long survival spirit toward the objectives.
I think we should close this topic and focus on the threats facing Podho Collo such as invasion of Jonglei state to Upper Nile State territory in Collo Panykang county, did we (Collo) ask the Governor as well as our assembly to take their stand? to confront Salva, the president who has appinted the Jonglei governor .
And if Salva did nothing ,then the state has the legal power to call the state forces and drive Jonglei authorities to its border. Although we did not ask our selves for almost 24 years, who are our governors and why?
I think this should be the mission we should focus on and the message President Salva needs to hear ,rather than internal Collo dispute. May God bless us all, and change our hearts and tranform us , so we may have the spirit of accepting one another.

Lwanyo Awang!

You are again right about the language we have been using in the media and you also mentioned that we need to put away some minor crisis and focus on what is facing Cøllø in the Kingdom today. We are not alone in the Sudan that are talking about the the problem that Land is being emerged into other states. The question is: Do Cøllø agree that their piece of their land should be locked out from the main land?
Wäd Awang! We are blowing the horn for our fellows to keeping bringing up the agenda regard to Our Kingdom to b isolatedt from other states, but other leaders are considering our words as a competitive to other people to leave our land. The may be: Do these people who are non-Cøllø like to live in to in Lägi Cøllø in Peace and not threatening the Cøllø Land and it people?

Cøllø, we are not alone in the media. there are thousands of educators (few Cøllø) who are against Cøllø to become a state in South Sudan or Republic of Sudan. To win this battle, of withholding those who are against Cøllø, we must not give up. "Winner never quit always"

Other may think that every thing they have conceived about the Cøllø to have their own state in the media are the media concerns, and we need to realize as well that "it" is now rotten and will not be fully recovered. I am totally sure that, because we are still living next door to the seducer, we will alway be threatened by their disloyalty and dishonesty brotherhoods of their.

We must keep pressing our educators and leaders in the media and in Lägi Cøllø to get our territory in our hand to secure our children from any catastrophe. Without the state to call ours, will never be free from these betrayers.

To ring a bell: Why some of our honestest leaders in SPLA/M or NCP are targeted by their political mates because of the positions they have?

Yes, you're right Mr. Akim, I believe having our own state is a good idea and solution that will secure the future of our children as you have mentioned. This mean our media should address our inspiration and put away Collo-Collo dispute that will not take us no where.
That does not mean there will not be oposition from other, of course I understand there will be, and our media-contibutors have to understand that too. Let keep doing the job and our today criticizers will be our tomorrow people, who will depend the vision. waht ever they right, we should not write back, and stick to the mission "Collo state" let educate our people !!!!!
