It was a mixture of admiration, anger and bitterness when photos of the daughter of South Sudanese business mogul, philanthropist, and politician Bibi Ali who got married in a glamorous wedding in Kenya were shared on social media.
Hot in Juba posted photos on their Facebook page showing a chopper that was pouring rose petals all over the wedding venue.
Many girls who commented, said this was their dream wedding and wished such beauty and class could happen to them too.
“This is stunning congrats darling yala Nas juba girls, if your wedding is not like this, no helicopter dropping roses ,I beg please don’t post it because we won’t comment, as 4 me this the lastest stunning wedding, the rest are traditional period!” Grace Bismarck posted.
“So what should we do. Tell him street kids are dying in Juba coz of hunger,” Alazi Brenda commented.
“He is an MP representative of his Constituency as People’s voice yet his voters are starving to death because of hungry. He could have bought 2000 bags of Sorghum to distribute to vulnerable Communities in his village would have made a great change in their lives than such a costly wedding,” Nyanabun Mawien Kok commented.
However, some people on social media argued that he should have brought his daughter’s wedding to Juba instead of taking it to another country.
“Let’s wait to witness a wedding by helicopter soon in Juba, Us south Sudanese don’t need to be shown something like this… it’s a temptation to our Tycoons,” Lico Showman.
