I am Abraham Garang the second son of late Mr. John Garang who was until his death the vice president of Sudan in Africa. In brief, my late father was a strong opposition for over 20years until he was appointed the vice president on the 9th July 2005 by the United Nations Peace Team as an avenue to quench 20years civil war in Sudan. He died on the 31st of July 2005 following a helicopter crash along side with 12 others just 22 days after appointment as
the vice president. What led to the crash is still unclear but i know my father was the target. If you wish to have more details, do visit this site on the internet:
