(NSV) - Samson Lukare Kwaje, the minister of agriculture and forestry in the Government of Southern Sudan and a great freedom fighter succumbed to his sickness on Saturday in a Nairobi hospital, where he was admitted with kidney complications for about three weeks.

On Saturday, President Kiir made a trip to the home of the deceased in Juba, to console his late comrade’s family  and to shed tears on behalf of a grieving nation.

“South Sudan has lost one of its great dear leaders,” Kiir told a small gathering of mourners at late Kwaje’s residence, according to a report written by Larco Lomayat for the SPLM Diaspora forum.

“The name of Dr. Samson Kwaje has been added to the list and names of martyrs, heroes and heroines who were martyred for freedom and justice.”

Reacting to the horrific news from Washington, Ezekiel Lol Gatkuoth, the head of the GoSS Mission in the USA expressed his “shock” to NSV.

He said the passing of Mr. Kwaje was a “great loss” to the south.

It’s a wake up call to all of us,” he said. “It should be seen as a way to unite ourselves and reach the promised land” in 2011,” he added.
