It's about talent and keeping intelligence at greater heights as well.STA website writers last week urges Junubin who can write great poems or passing a great message to Junubin as long as it's non political can be send to them and shall be publish  here. Below is a message to fellow junubin artists  by your own artist who have dropped a musical mic and took a new turn to enjoy the fruits of education we learn in school for a nation for long had been hidden behind the clouds of war and social injustice.

I'm so happy for you guys cause you are working so hard to unite our people musically. And I hope one day you guys will  thwart tribalism and unite our people.

But, I'm solicitude for you guys to study. Go to school so that you will write a pragmatic lyrics. I know that we are facing financial crisis, but if you have a chance,  please don't lost it. And I know we barry according to our backgrounds, some of us come from penniless familes while some of us come from rich families.

Urging you to study doesn't mean that I'm against your job (music),  but I want you to do both of them together cause music is your talent. Why would you quit it? Go to school and let music be your part time job. 
Later on when music fails, it is gonna be easy for you to find a job.


rrMany people are “speeding down the highway of poverty in a luxury vehicle.”
We are working hard to keep up with a lifestyle. We are aspiring after and admiring people who we perceive to have this lifestyle. We are getting into debt to fund this lifestyle. Then we cheat ourselves that because we have a great lifestyle we are wealthy.
You may have a flashy lifestyle but be the poorest person in the room. Having a great income and lifestyle can cheat you that your financial life is headed in the right direction but in actual fact, it may not be.
Someone at the event asked me what the signs that someone is headed towards poverty are.
Here are some of the signs to watch out for. If you are early in your working life this is still important so that you do not get into the trap that many have found themselves in.
You cannot live without your salary. If your salary was delayed for a week you would be rioting in the streets. We all start out like this and indeed we may be here.
We need our salaries to pay rent, food, entertainment, school fees, etc. This is called dependence. However this cannot be our long-term plan. You need to be actively working towards being able to live without your salary.
To do that means portions of your income (the older you are the more the portion) should be going towards savings and investments rather that simply moving to a bigger house, going to a more expensive bar or buying a bigger car. The bigger car is simply making you more dependent on the salary you earn.
Your Flossets exceed your Assets. The value of your cars, personal belongings, spend on holidays and so forth exceed actual investments such as property, shares, businesses etc.
If that is the case, you need to reverse this even if it means selling your flossets. The reason is simple: Flossets depreciate in value while assets appreciate in value. Have more of the things that will appreciate in value and less of the things that depreciate in value.
An asset can fund a flosset. For example, the investment property you buy can give you income to fund a holiday, but the car cannot fund the holiday. Do not sell your assets to fund flossets.
A friend of mine who is in real estate told me how she has been finding it odd that her clients with the huge lifestyles and big job titles are the same ones unable to raise deposits for the properties they are buying while other people who come across as very simple are able to, and many times pay off the properties in a couple of months in cash.
You spend to impress. Many times, we spend to impress other people. We falsely believe that the phone, the, neighborhood, club, car gives us respect or elevates our social status. Usually, you find it was not respect you got but short-lived attention.
To get the attention again when excitement over what you bought has died down, you will need to buy something else. This becomes a never ending cycle and a prison. Spending is not necessarily bad if it is line with your personal values and choices.
When you spend to impress, you are spending for other people not you. There is a difference between buying the car to be seen in that car and buying a car because it is something you decide you want to experience.
You have a high level of consumer debt. This means you have taken loans to fund lifestyle. Consumer debt includes credit cards, salary advance, school fees loans, furniture loans, car loans.
Any loan that did not result in money being made is a bad debt and you must keep these kinds of debt to an absolute minimum. At the end of the day, these debts usually mean you spent more than you were earning.
You bought clothes you couldn’t afford with the credit card, you took your kids to a school you can’t afford through a loan, etc.
You don’t have a plan for your life. This is actually the biggest clue that you may be speeding down the highway of poverty. In fact it also may be the reason that you find the points raised above apply.
The Bible says that people without vision perish. I have ended with this point but it should actually be where you start. I don’t believe anyone can tell you the vision you should have for yourself.
What I know is that the steps you take in life should be taking you towards your vision. You need to be able to tell how your current job or business is propelling you forward.
When you have these goals, you can then see why taking control of your spending is important, why exorbitant spend on lifestyle may be getting you further from the life you actually want and what the things are that have value to you that you would spend on.




The power for the successful liberation of the South Sudanese people is solely based on the willingness of our youth to use peaceful, non-violent and anti-tribal methods to end this conflict. We cannot expect the very hand that killed our mothers, sisters, brothers and elders to lead us into a peaceful future (both government and rebels). The power to end tribal hatred is in the hands of the South Sudanese youth. And so is the power to end the conflict. We must distant ourselves from the violent nature of politics we are subjected to, in order to avoid the mental enslavement.

We cannot sit at home behind our computers, and fancy phones constantly posting about wanting to end the conflict, while we also at the same time engage ourselves in the blame game for the current predicament the country has been plunged in to, yet don’t want to physically do something to end the conflict. That’s a cowardice act.

Our fore heroes did not sacrifice their lives fighting a common enemy to liberate our people so we can turn against each other. They would be very disappointed to see us choose greed and violence over our peaceful wellbeing.

We are all relatives, regardless of our tribes, or political affiliations. We share the same blood. We share the same skin color. We share a common struggle. And we carry the same interests for a peaceful South Sudan. Therefore, I urge all of you to stand against tribalism that our fathers and uncles have subjected us to. We must unite and stand firm against the tribal injustices we are going through. We must come together as we carry the same dream, to live in a peaceful country.

We must unite our communities and make them understand the importance of peace. We must educate our communities that we can all co-exist, prosper, develop, and be successful as one big family of over sixty tribes. We must guarantee our children and little siblings a promising future.

Right now! Right now is the time to make that positive change!

Dear foreign countries,
We (South Sudanese) are truly sorry for bugging you in your respective countries. We are sorry for coming to your countries in large numbers looking for a safe place to stay in while we try to fix our problems back home. We are very sorry for being too much in need of your help.
We are sorry for overpopulating your countries.
And we are sorry for having the worse leaders in the region. The leaders who are too greedy to put our people's interests forth.
We are truly sorry, especially to Kenyans, who have been extremely nice to us, and to the few Kenyans who grew tired of us.
And to Ugandans, and Ethiopians, we are sorry for having the most problems in the region.
And also not forgetting the U.S.A, Canada, Australia, UK and the rest of the countries affected by our current conflict.

But we do promise you this, we shall solve our problems soon regardless the magnitude of our conflict. We are very strong at heart, and we believe in the impossible, we may fight but we are quick to shake hands and move forward.
Currently, we are having a slight misunderstanding that escalated too fast, but it shall be ended soon. We are very hopeful that our country will one day enjoy everlasting peace, just like the rest of the countries.
Trust us, we are working towards ending the current violence in our country. I can't promise you that we will leave your countries for good once peace comes back home, but we will all go back to build our country. And you'll all be welcome and be treated with absolute kindness and hospitality.

Therefore, just be patient with us for now.

Yours truly,
 South Sudanese child.
