Some called on the African Union (AU) to intervene in the ongoing crisis:
The AU should do something substantial than just saying they are concerned. #ListentoSouthSudanGoonerholic
Let's force Africa to accommodate South Sudan in their busy schedule.... #ListentoSouthSudanDennis Onsarigo
Others expressed disappointment that the African Union (AU)
members to condemn International Criminal Court proceedings against sitting presidents, but is not taking greater action against the violence in South Sudan:
While the people are killed, the AU is quiet, when the perpetrators are taken to the ICC, they turn up with opinions.#SouthSudanWarDr_evin jr.
AU's unity against the ICC demonstrated how strong and united Africans are more so when tested. SS isn't lesser. #ListenToSouthSudanAtemah Gor.©
Funny how all African Heads of State are united in protecting our own on ICC, is S.Sudan not our own too?? #listentosouthsudan @RobertAlaiTony Tric

Kenyan Government should impose sanctions against folks supporting warring factions in South Sudan. #ListentoSouthSudanKia Maina
