Manut Bol from the village stage to the world Stage
The grand tall Nilein/ Nileotic passed away, drawn from the Nile river its length, greatness and tyranny and drawn from his tallness the meanings of additions to life and contributions to humanity and basket ball as a universal star well recognized, death absented yesterday my friend and comrade/ Manute Bol in Virginia in the united states of America after Impressive victories in life and struggle with t illness, and Manute who comes from Rural Gogrial from (Tor Aly) the land where from its plains emerged many characters in the leadership stage (Martin Manyel Ayel), (Carbino Konyanw Bol), (Dr. Justin Yac Arob), (Domic Deam) and others.
Manute Bol the son of that village went in a long journey from the village stage to the wide international world stage and was known on the edges of the globe as one of basket ball legends, he did not stop there but actively and with high commitment was active on Sudan and the liberation issues, he opened his house in the American capital for the leaders of Sudan people Liberation Movement (SPLM) and the leaders of National Democratic Alliance (NDA) , he stood beside the right of the people of South Sudan to Freedom and equality, He was generous and loyal and faithful to the principle that a human being lives for the others and does not spare his money or himself , he was always a human being with dignity and high Self-esteem. Through all the times that I met him and over and over .
In hope and Change Campaign I participated in a forum at (Tor Aly) village with the leader Salva Kiir Mayardit and I said at the forum (that they should be so proud that their village gave birth to great women and men and in the forefront is Manute Bol). I met him after that in
Juba and told him.
Manute departed and
Sudan is moving towards its grand issue the referendum on the right to self determination and if death spared him some time he would’ve witness this event that he always yearned to.
Manute Bol who always lifted high the name of
Sudan, Baher Algazal, Gogrial (Twic) (Tor Aly) is Worthy celebrating. We appeal to Sudanese sport men and women and the intellectuals to celebrate the life of Manute Bol the Sudanese Icon that came from the village Stage to the world Stage,
Our condolences to his family, his friends, his colleagues, his beloved and the new coming Sudanese generations in spite of all the difficulties, and to the Rural population in a special way everything is possible and moves from the stage of the village to the top stage of the world is also possible and to the broader life good bye/ farewell Manute Bol.
