Re: Manute Bol aaga dunia akiwa na umri wa miaka 47
I am so sad to hear this. Before Hasheem Thabeet, there was Manute Bol.
I remember following his career with the Washington Wizards way back in the days, I mean way back when Manute Bol and Hakeem Olajuwon were the two Africans really representing. I think Manute Bol earned a place in Guiness book of records as the tallest NBA player. More important than his NBA records were his heart, his commitment to the Southern Sudan causes (which set him back quite a few million dollars actually, for the bottom line types) and his scandal free career .
Manute will be missed by not only the Southen Sudan massive, but all Africans and humanitarians the world over.
