  • This is not a government for South Sudan. It is a governement for Dinka. May be South Sudan people need to form their own government. Or the government should represent the whole people of South Sudan.

    Someone said, "when shame was distributed some tribes did not take their share". It is true, the Dinkas and others do not pause to reflect about the reaction of others towards their actions.

    Where are we in this government? The answer is obvious, we are out there creating more division among ourselves. We have limited ourselves to Collo philosophy square leaving the broader area unattended. This Collo philosophy Square of division and hatred is no more than distruction of Collo Kingdom. As a consequence we are always left out. I hope this will teach us a very great lesson. I am proposing that we discuss these issues critically. We have many challenges facing us at all corners. Have we thought of tackling them? Tribes are entering our borders and claiming part of our lands, have we challenged that?
    Since we have fought the war, it is our right too to enjoy the fruits of peace and governance.

    I believe without doubt that Southsudan is a tribal society. therefore if there is something concerns the whole people of that part , Should be based on tribalism. Iam not urging or encouraging this bad habit . But it is reality and we have to be realistic. Let me give you example . When splition occured in the early ninties peple supported Garang,Lam or Riak according to thier tribes rather than thier ideaologies. although i believe that we need to get rid of tribalism but at the moment we need to respect the feelings of our people.

    I bet, Shilluk Have now learned the most toughest lesson of all that they may not be included in ministers things of South Sudan as the President of South Sudan state.

    Let me tell you again. Shilluk Stand for Shilluk Kingdom, and to stand for Shilluk Kingdom, we must not only watch with our eyes open while Pres. Kiir is reappointing his supporters for minister positions of South Sudan.

    Her is some thing you may want to recall: People always say, "me first, follows by we."
    It is up to you to learn what our tribal president already started himself, but if he is letting us into the hole, we are better to pull back and search for our true root, and who we are. Are we really Southern Sudanese or Shilluk Kingdom's? If so or not, what can we do to stop all these tribalisms businesses which are mostly started by top leaders? Don't take this issue as easy for Southern Sudanese!

    Nothing was really new about the reshaffle. The same people were only shifted to different positions like thieves put to new shops without police. Will this reshaffle solve the problem of incompetency, laziness and corruption, which is zeroing GoSS performance? I doubt whether honey can flow down from the newly appointed ministers to the poor people of Southern Sudan!!!!

    Well, united we stand and divided we fall! Why are we crying now while we were not in the cabinet in the first place and did not protest? Very soon GONU will be reshaffle and peace be upon our kingdom! Folks, things do not automatically happen people have to campaign for them. Though the other tribes must be blamed for our marginalization I will boldy say that Collo shoulder the most blame for what is happening. He who has ears let him hear!

  • I think nothing left hidden for Chollo to wait for.Therefore, I urge all Chollo over the World including myself to start campaigning against Salva tribalistic government in all form of media.Starting with Sudan news paper whether English or Arabic. Gurtong, Sudannet,Sudanile, SPLM disapora, SPLM Forum etc.What ever type of media available.
    Chollo does not stand for escape goat.It stands for people.
    Note : No Ochollo or Nyachollo should reply or comment on other Chollo articles. We need to stand united against outsiders.

    Dear Cøllø!

    I am not certainly sure of what is about to hurt Cøllø from it ground-root to the tip of it tree, but speaking of campaign against the Vice and the President of South Sudan will result in no response from some media controllers. There are many possibilities you can try, and some may work, not other. A very formal, well touched, very reasonable article, which may stand against the President (Salva Kiir) and it tribalism may not be published. Because some of Cøllø have tried this several times, but their opinions are never being published or posted on any websites. So, Gïn acuki yïa ki kwøbø ba kinia, “Keløg yï dwata gwëdi tyëng ni møgani, gwedi nyingi ena nyingi jiani.” Ki bang menani, oge obängi gen. De bene gen møg acuki ki yïa ki tödi wun nyiamïa. De cyee, lebbe ko bëëdø nimi “Benha Ongyenyø, ge dwata bëdø ni bënha Lääl.” Kipa lääl bene en anyi pädhi ki døjø. That is way some time you see many articles (Written by Cøllø, but not a real Cøllø) being published with ideas that are misrepresenting us in the media.
    Try it and you will see the result yourself.

    Stick to the mission Cøllø!

    To the web politician gigs:
    Web developer: I hope there is no one registered from Dinka as member on this web that can read? I thought Chollo knew this was gonna happen before. I just don’t know why every one is whining! Do you guys think is kind of early for that?
    Let’s chill and wait for the country separation. It will be a lot comments posted on this web. I think it’s about time to step up us one Chollo.
    Carlo J. Chol I like your comment!! ;D
