Nyaruach is not giving up on the search and her next move is to check in the United Nations Protection camps within the country, with the hope she would find him.
May be by lady luck the depressed young lady would smile upon getting her Gatluak.
Gatluak has never been a jealous guy and this explains why Nyaruach is not giving up on the guy who loved her and gave her the chance to dance and mingle with other men in the community without causing problem.
“Gatluak was free styled man who valued my happiness, he never cared about my interaction with other men because he believed in me, he is not like the men of today who are jealous and will never allow you stand next to another guy,” said Nyaruach.

Respect everyone’s career, Rapper Aripano says
The debate over one’s career being better than the other’s has been going on in the city and most educated and not educated youth always discuss it.
Other careers are respected more than others, leaving so many stranded of which career to take but for a South Sudanese rapper Aripano, all careers should be respected.
Qualification is not this rap song talking about women and drugs, it is one of those unique lyrical tracks preaching about the respect of all careers in the country with the argument that they all play a role in nation building.
South Sudan known for its oil industry has influenced many youth in deciding what careers they want to take.
Yearly, many join the industry with thousands of graduates, leaving other careers with few professionals.
Aripano, a Procurement and Logistics professional gave out many reasons supporting why everyone’s career is the best, and why it should be respected.
“The youth are torn apart on what career path they should take because of lack of guidance and because of what they hear, they get convinced that this and this career is better than the other and this has brought in so many attitudes,” Aripano said.
according to Aripano, some careers are not respected because of what people say, but that what matters is whether the career brings food on table or not.
He said instead of disrespecting other careers, people should be educated to appreciate life directions taken by others, giving example that not all South Sudanese can be doctors or teachers.
“What matters in any career or profession is whether it brings food on table and no one should feel inferior or superior because of their career,” Aripano said.
