A great man has died. He had the education to lead his people. Very sad – read his resume below. All that lost!!
Late General James Ajongo Mawut, January 1, 1961 – April 20, 2018
My Dear brother and Hero, James Ajongo,
I still remember the day I met you in your office on January 31, 2018, and I do also remember the great moment when you gave me more than an hour meeting with you in your office that day.
It is very shocking, sad and unfortunate to learn about your untimely passing away which up to now I could not believe. You are one of the heroes who sacrificed your entire life for the freedom of the people of South Sudan, the freedom we are enjoining today, would have not been there without your dedication and commitment to this beloved nation my brother. The people of South Sudan and the entire people of the world will not forget you, you will be remembered for ever and ever and generation to generation.
Rest In Peace My Dear Brother Till The Day We Will Meet In Heaven.
