25th July, 2021
It is with great sadness that the Office of the Vice President, H.E. Rebecca N. De Mabior, announces the passing of our Executive Director, Hon. Chaat Paul Nul. Chaat succumbed to terminal cancer in Nairobi, surrounded by his close family and friends, yesterday evening.
His kind spirit, sober wisdom, and avuncular nature created a loving atmosphere in our office, leading our staff to refer to him as “Uncle Chaat or Uncle ED.” Throughout his lifetime, he served the people of South Sudan without hesitation whenever the country called on him.
He was a courageous statesman who served his country with commitment and pride. As the cadre of our struggle, he proved what it means to live as the beacon of hope, joy, and love.
The Vice President, Mama Rebecca N. de Mabior, the staff of the Office of the Vice President and the government at large will miss him dearly.
We hope and pray that his immediate family will find comfort in the remembrance of his honorable life and legacy.
The office of the Vice President encourages the public to follow the family’s advice regarding the funeral and another arrangement for his burial.
