In ehrvoller Erinnerung an Nelson Mandela werden die südsudanesischen Flaggen für 3 Tage auf Halbmast gehisst sein.
The president, Government and people of South Sudan are deeply saddened by the loss of Nelson Mandela, a man who had dedicated all his life to liberation and service of his people. Mandela’s death is a loss not only for his immediate rainbow nation but also for Africa and the whole world because he had become the epitome of love, freedom, equality, tolerance and multi –racial co-existence. As a mark of respect for the memory of Nelson Mandela, who died at 95 years of old, the president of the Republic of South Sudan, General Salva Kiir Mayardit , has send a letter of condolence to his brother Jacob Zuma, the President of South Africa , and ordered that the national flag of South Sudan be half-mast on all public buildings including our diplomatic missions abroad for three days.
We the people of South Sudan reiterate our sympathy with the people of South Africa and ask the Almighty God to give solace and comfort to the family of Madiba and rest his soul in eternal peace.
