June 3, 2020(Nyamilepedia) — I met John Luk Jok in the mid 1970’s when he was working in Yirol as Range three Local government administrator and I was a student at Juba Commercial Senior Secondary School. We had a very good social and community relationship as John Luk Jok was fluent in thok-reel; a language akin to thok Naath. He was not the only Nuer that I had an opportunity to have a social and community relationship with. There was Samuel Gai Tut and Banek Riek Dong known as “Kuaclieth”, the son of the former Paramount chief Riek Dong of Dok. Both Gai and Banek also worked in Yirol as Local Goverment Inspectors. In the early 1980’s we met again with John Luk Jok in London. He was doing his Masters Degree; LLM as I was doing my LLB. We forged a political, family and social relationship which grew over the years.
