On behalf of Bor County Diaspora (USA), we take this opportunity to give condolences to the family members and the entire Aweil Community on the passing of our statesman and legend Lt. Gen. Hon. Uncle Lual Diing Wol. Sadly enough, the death has once again deprived us of one of then few living icons and revolutionary African statesmen Uncle Lual Diing Wol, whose contributions and wise counsel to the leading members of then Politico-Military High Command of SPLM/A has led to the liberation and the founding of our new nation, Republic of South Sudan.
Uncle Lualdit’s list of accomplishments is endless and more so especially with his glaring presence and contributions toward the liberation struggle as epitomized in endless youtube and video clips standing side by side with the Chairman and SPLM/A founder Dr. John Garang rallying troops both in the boot camps and on front lines. What is less well known to all is the fact that Lualdit was one of the few members of then South Sudan Regional Assembly who ran unopposed on several occasions because his electorates believed in his leadership capabilities to represent them in Southern Sudan Regional Legislative Assembly. Uncle Lualdit served honorably together with our own Hon. Martin Majier Gai (Bor South, one of few MPs who also ran unopposed on several occasions), Hon. Ateng Alier Kuany (Bor Central), and Hon. Elijah Malok Aleng (Bor North). Uncle Lualdit’s passing is a loss to the entire nation as well as to the entire African continent. As a community, we stand in solidarity with Lualdit’s family, Aweil Community, and entire South Sudan during this moment of tremendous to our nation. We pray that Almighty God bless him and rest his soul in peace.
