In the first place, Dr. John Garang De Mabior was killed!

*Interviewer:*
What? This is a very serious allegation.

*Ghazi:*
Killed!

*Interviewer:*
Why?

*Ghazi:*
It was a conspiracy against Northern Sudan because Dr. John Garang was the person working for the unity of the Sudan.

*Interviewer:*
So who killed him Ghazi?

*Ghazi:*
The same agents who are working for the overthrow of the system. I’m telling you this thing for the 1st time.
At the last Council of Ministers meeting, two more meetings after that, John Garang was meant to announce the GoNU in Khartoum and then the IGSS.
And then in the afternoon I got a call from Mansour Khalid that Dr. John Garang wanted to see me in the Presidential Palace at 3pm. I went to see John Garang at 3pm in the Presidential Palace, and he told me that it was something private and that he was going to Uganda. He told me that I should represent him at a conference in Cambridge.
Then when I came out of the meeting, I was stopped by Bakari Hassan Salah (the then Defense Minister, now the FVP). Bakari told me “this man of yours”, which man I said? “John Garang he said”.. If he’s going to do things the way that he’s doing them alone; something bad will happen to him.
“Why do you say that I said”? We heard he wants to go to Uganda and he has not told us, he said. But he’s now the FVP and every movement must be told to us. He is not a guerrilla any more. If you leave him to those people of yours, they will do something to him. He hasn’t told us officially that he’s going to Uganda. If he tells us, we must arrange transport.

*Interviewer:*
Where did you learn this?

*Ghazi:*
This is the first time I’ve talked about it.
