It is with profound sadness that I learned of the passing away of President Robert Gabriel Mugabe. On behalf of the people and government of the Republic of South Sudan, Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) and indeed on my own behalf, l offer our sincere sympathies and condolences to his family, friends and the people of the Republic of Zimbabwe who have lost a great leader, revolutionary and dedicated statesman.
President Robert Mugabe’s life has touched millions around the world with his invaluable contribution as a champion for democracy, equality, human rights, emancipation, peace and development. To the world, he is an icon.
To Africans, he is a Liberator and inspirational figure to what we are capable of achieving for this great continent. His commitment and determination will continue to inspire us for generations to come.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, loved ones and our comrades from ZANU- PF, during this time of bereavement and our solidarity remain with the brotherly people of Zimbabwe as we honor his legacy
May God Almighty rest his soul in eternal peace
Salva Kiir Mayardit
President of the Republic of South Sudan
