    We south Sudanese solidly stands behind this decisions of you Brigadier General Kochu! How on earth can we trust Kiir if he has remain stubborn and not moved a single inch in area o disagreement. He refused to do anything about the 32 miniature tribal states. IGAD is keeping RIek Machar under arrest and Kiiirs tribal Militia ccupying civilian places instead of going into cantonment.
