In brief, my late father was a strong opposition for over 20yrs until he was appointed the vice president on the 9th of July 2005 by the United Nations Peace Team as an avenue to quench the 20yrs civil war in Sudan. He died on the 31st of July 2005 following a helicopter crash alongside with 12 others just 22days after his appointment as the vice president. What led to the helicopter crash is still unclear but I know that my father was the target.
