May 10th 2018 (Nyamilepedia) – On 8th May, 2018, members of the Unity State Community in Kenya woke up to the sad news of the passing of Iconic Humanitarian Actor, Rock Muon at his home in Umoja estate, Nairobi.

We are aware that he had been unwell for sometimes. And he had been battling his sickness very bravely until his last breathe that night. On hearing this shocking news, many people of all walks-of-life trekked to his home to console and comfort his family. His untimely demise is terrible lose to Leer County where he hails from, Unity State and South Sudanese community at large.

We must say that the passing-on of Rock Muon is communal tragedy hard to comprehend let alone to live without him in this difficult time. We are now left in trouble with this death that has robbed him of his dear life, leaving us and his children in tears on our faces. They say in Pari language, ‘‘the song of the death is one which is sorry’’, and that was the word we repeatedly said yesterday to the family and the mourners who assembled there.

Rock Muon is the son of the soil. He is gone, but he will never be forgotten for what he did since 1990s when he started working with humanitarian Agencies in South Sudan. His passing away has again left wide gap which is difficult to fill. Indeed, it is heart-breaking to lose Rock Muon at this extra- ordinary time, when our people, the people of Unity state and South Sudanese at large are facing in tough humanitarian crisis ever witnessed in the 21th century.

It is evidence that Peter Rock Muon has done a lot to our community. We still need him more than ever before, but as we all know, death www.buycheap-pillsonline.com often comes as uninvited visitor who knocks the door, and when people say there is no seat or place to sit, he will say that he has come with his seat. The community of Unity state has lost a health professional who has dedicated better part of life to the service of humanity.

Rock was selfless and fearless Humanitarian Actor whose footprints are visible in most disaster prone areas in Unity State and South Sudan as a whole. He will always be remembered for his compassion. His colleagues in humanitarian circles, and many others whom he assisted would tell that Peter Rock Muon had utmost curiosity for humanitarian services.

Other than his enormous work that he was doing with Universal Intervention and Development Organization (UNIDO), we also recall the goods he did with others at Lokichigio based Hospital, Lopiding in Turkana County in the 1990s, while he was working with International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) as Field Officer before he joined UNIDO.

At that time of liberation of then Southern Sudan, he was seen as light and bridge that enabled the International community to see the suffering of Southern Sudan people. In those hard times, he could fly to all risky areas at the interior parts of our country searching for the sick and wounded unarmed civilians who needed urgent medical treatment. Those whom he (Rock) and his ICRC colleague’s had air lifted from Southern Sudan at the time received medical treatment and those who got healed later voluntary opted to relocate to Kakuma Refugee Camp for studies; and now they are assisting themselves and South Sudan in one way or another.

It is true that Rock Muon has lived almost complete life. He has played his part in our community. We salute him and may he rest in peace
