      It’s a very sad accidental news. May God rest his soul in eternal life. God gives and God takes! He’s shown what to do as a visionary citizen though he died. His name is in good records of history of South Sudan. My heart-felt condolences to family members of late Zacharia Lat and may God comfort them!
