  1. south Sudan has nothing to do with money even, no security, roads schools, salaries so on, what substitutes will they rely on from loosing that visa fees? what benefits will they get from influx of Ugandans into South Sudan, our people take money to Ugandan for so many reasons, Ugandans interest is very clear and visible if at all people in government have minds to think rather than individual interests that stationed theirs families in Ugandan and made south Sudan as a working place but not home to be developed. I really regret that idea from government of self services in Juba. But they must know that one day in this South Sudan, SPLM be it IG or IO will be thrown into dustbin for failing south Sudan and the people.

  2. This is good progress!

    Africa oyeee!
