I love this story because it reminds me that one person can make a difference. In 1979, Jadav Payeng began planting a tree every day for 37 years — results are stunning

#KenyaElections2022 is yet another example that shows elections are won by the best marketers of brands & a good number of the intended audience must emotionally connect with such brands. #SouthSudan

You or your dad/mother or uncles/aunties fought for freedom/independence only to hand it back to some people to decide when you should have a piece of bread on the table for your dependents or to ask them permission to live? That's insanity. #SouthSudan

When you have been fired thru a decree w/o a reason or you are thrown into the Blue House & released due to a lack of strong evidence to prosecute you, it has become a common practice to write/say that you appreciate the decision-makers. Insanities normalized in #SouthSudan.

Kelimu gali: macroeconomic policy - especially monetary management doesn’t need science (in KiJunubi: ma dayir science😭😭) & so we can print 1000 banknote as we wish. Result: The national currency is on a freefall as $1 = SSP630. In the goods market, prices have skyrocketed.

Great points except many voters choose their preferred candidate a long time ago and such choices are usually against their own best interests and they don't have to make sense - mostly based on social norms rather than on economic/market norms. #SouthSudan
The TRUTH is, William Ruto is an astute debater. He would definitely be too fast for Raila Odinga & that’s why Azimio is withdrawing Tinga. That said, Raila absconding the debate is going to be costly on his campaign.
