    You have to respect Major General Moses Obi, the immediate past Force Commander of UNMISS and a 37-year veteran.

    Imagine that he was part of this mission which looks like something from the era of the Nigerian Civil War..an involvement which ended 30 years!

    Nothing beats experience, gentlemen.
