South Sudan government is requesting women and especially those in diaspora to better their families than focusing on divisive posts and live videos on Facebook. The government is concerned that women driven by self-interests are spearheading potential disintegration of the country.
In a meeting held at J1 to air South Sudanese social lives on social media, The source said women are threatening the stability of the baby nation through hate comments and posts on Facebook instead of settling in their households and fill the voids in their families.
During the meeting, Aguer Panyang said, ”We do not need to discipline them because they have families they are looking after and we really advise they help even their extended families if at all they are happily married. We are doing our best to better our nation but a couple of figures out there are dragging us backward”
Aguer continued saying that the government has long arms and can de-horn women who are married to Facebook and causing public uproar but he brushed his point claiming it will not help the nation instead it will bring bad fortune to their respective families.
Salva Kiir summoned his colleagues for a dialogue on how to save the public from warmongers who have reached a level of attacking his family. The president puts it that they have the right to air their views but they should be on the ground to genuinely critique instead of spilling lungs on social media.
No names where released but rather pictures of which some are prominent figures on social media. Aguer concluded that it is just a request as they do not plan to discipline anyone but should the current norm persist, they will have no option but act accordingly to save the public from getting into skirmishes.
