Late Silvio Ajing Aba GocMay, 1935- July 10, 2012

Cause of Death: SILVIO AJING ABA GOC, passed away at the age of 77, on July 10, 2012 as a result of sudden collapse due to heart failure, in Malakal, Upper Nile State, and RSS. The condition started upon falling unto the ground on 26th of December of 2011, due to stroke; where he was flown to Khartoum for medical treatment. There, he was diagnosed with Spinal Cord Disc Disorder, for which he underwent a surgical operation in January of 2012 and was duly put on physical therapy treatment, designated to last for six months. However, the late AJING ABA started to complain of irregular and uneasy feet movement, which progressed to unsteady heartbeats on the day of his passed away. His children and family were by his side when he drifted off to be with the Lord. This is a great loss for the family and indeed the entire Chollo community. May God rest his soul in Eternal peace and may God give the family comfort at this difficult time.
