John Garang who went from his quiet home in southern Sudan, to quelling a rebellion, earned a doctorate, became a rebel, and eventually gained the second most powerful position in his nation has died. This brings ups several very interesting points if you assume this was not an accident (I’m undecided).

  • How did his flight crash? I can think of a half dozen rather plausible ways to make it look like an accident. The list of people that could benefit from Garangs departure is probably longer than my arms.
  • Will this restart the civil war? There has already been rioting in which dozens were killed and injured.
  • Who will succeed Garang? And is this the start of the central governments attempts to purge the former rebels, or simply an attempt to rob them of leadership so that the southern region doesn’t rally around Garang and go independent in a few years?

Hopefully all these questions and more will be answered soon.

    Quite sad – reminds one of the Rwandan president’s death 10 or so years ago under similar circumstances.

    Suggest a more descriptive headline – will fix
