“When my father planned to fly to Khartoum, he tested positive for Coronavirus.” As a result, when he tested positive for Covid-19, he was unable to go,” Deng said.
“My father’s health condition deteriorated at home,” he continued. So he had to be brought to the hospital yesterday, where he died.”
Deng Mading, a senior member of President Salva Kiir’s Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM), was born in Abyei.
