New South Sudan

A lot has been happening in and around Sudan like it usually happens! However, when one comes across a ridiculous analog age decree so stupid it is laughable and the more, in a world where many lawless don Eden's suit and rags. A New South Sudan (NSS) could be in an offing and in style.

Anybody who has ever been to the New Sudan (NS) / South Sudan and seen it all, will agree that the decree orders 1, 2 and 3 of the Kapoeta County Decree No. 001/2009 is to an extent absurd and ironic to say the least.
Order 1 reads: No woman should be seen dressing (sic) [Read: Wearing] tight trousers and blouses with the navel exposed to the public.
Order 2 Reads: Skirts must below the knees.
Order 3 reads: Boys plaiting their hair to look like ladies is totally prohibited.
Needless and a hopeless decree indeed as long as it encroaches on some freedoms. So, Malesh Mr. Commissioner, your decree is also very laughable! Such decrees will weaken your leadership. And it is not a laughing matter. Some sections of the South Sudan are rewriting history.
