Tributes to Late Paul Jacob Kumbo and Butheina Mohammed Saleh
By Elia Joseph Loful
The entire staff of Juba Monitor Institution would like to pay heartfelt tributes to fallen colleagues in the media fraternity; Late Paul Jacob Kumbo and Butheina Mohammed Saleh who passed on within a very short time as members of the media. The Late Paul Jacob has served for long time as the Director General of information in the Ministry of Information, Communication Technology and Postal Services before his recent appointment as the Undersecretary in the same Ministry.
On the other hand Last week Friday, South Sudan Broadcasting Corporation (SSBC) and the country at large lost a long serving Journalist, a Radio Presenter Butheina Mohammed who died in Khartoum as well. As South Sudan media fraternity mourns the two colleagues who have gone and will not be seen anymore, this has negatively left a big gap behind which is very difficult to fill. As we face this tough moment for losing such dedicated colleagues, we as media houses should acknowledge that the two have contributed immensely to the people of South Sudan and media and we too should endeavor to fill the missing gap.
