      Unhappy Manute Bol aaga dunia akiwa na umri wa miaka 47

      Former NBA player Manute Bol dies in hospital





      KANSAS CITY, Missouri (AP)—Manute Bol, a lithe 7-foot-7 (2.3-meter) shot-blocker from Sudan who spent 10 seasons in the NBA and was dedicated to humanitarian work in Africa, died Saturday. He was 47.

      Bol died at the University of Virginia Hospital in Charlottesville, where he was being treated for severe kidney trouble and a painful skin condition, Tom Prichard, executive director of the group Sudan Sunrise, said in an e-mail.

      “Sudan and the world have lost a hero and an example for all of us,” Prichard said. “Manute, we’ll miss you. Our prayers and best wishes go out to all his family, and all who mourn his loss.”

      Bol played 10 seasons in the NBA with Washington, Golden State, Philadelphia and Miami and later worked closely as an advisory board member of Sudan Sunrise, which promotes reconciliation in Sudan. Bol averaged 2.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.3 blocked shots.

      Janis Ricker, operations manager of Sudan Sunrise, said Saturday that the organization would continue its work building the school in Bol’s home village in southern Sudan. The building still lacks a second floor roof, she said.

      She said Bol’s goal was to build 41 schools throughout Sudan.

      Jamaa aligawa mamilioni yote aliyopata huko NBA kusaidia wasudani. Amekuwa anaishi kutokana na vyanzo vingine vya mapato nje kabisa ya mshahara wake wa NBA.

      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.

      Default Former NBA player Bol dies at 47

      Manute Bol, a lithe 7-foot-7 shot-blocker from Sudan who spent 10 seasons in the NBA and was dedicated to humanitarian work in Africa, died Saturday. He was 47.
      Bol died at the University of Virginia Hospital in Charlottesville, where he was being treated for severe kidney trouble and a painful skin condition, Tom Prichard, executive director of the group Sudan Sunrise, said in an e-mail.

      Bol, who stood 7 feet, 7 inches, was a contemporary of 5-foot-7 former slam dunk champion Spud Webb. He was also a former teammate of 5-foot-3 Muggsy Bogues, the shortest person to play in the NBA.

      "Sudan and the world have lost a hero and an example for all of us,'' Prichard said. "Manute, we'll miss you. Our prayers and best wishes go out to all his family, and all who mourn his loss.''

      Bol played 10 seasons in the NBA with Washington, Golden State, Philadelphia and Miami and later worked closely as an advisory board member of Sudan Sunrise, which promotes reconciliation in Sudan. Bol averaged 2.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.3 blocked shots.
      "Manute's impact on this city, our franchise and the game of basketball cannot be put into words,'' 76ers president and general manager Ed Stefanski said in a statement. "He ... was continually giving of himself through his generosity and humanitarian efforts in order to make the world around him a much better place, for which he will always be remembered.''
      Bol was hospitalized in mid-May during a stopover in Washington after returning to the United States from Sudan. Prichard said then that Bol was in Sudan to help build a school in conjunction with Sudan Sunrise but stayed longer than anticipated after the president of southern Sudan asked him to make election appearances and use his influence to counter corruption in his home county.
      He said Bol had undergone three dialysis treatments and developed Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, a condition that caused him to lose patches of skin.
      Prichard said the skin around Bol's mouth was so sore that he went 11 days without eating and could barely talk.
      Prichard said it's believed that Bol contracted the skin disease as a reaction to kidney medication he took while in Africa.
      Janis Ricker, operations manager of Sudan Sunrise, said Saturday that the organization would continue its work building the school in Bol's home village in southern Sudan. The building still lacks a second floor roof, she said.
      She said Bol's goal was to build 41 schools throughout Sudan.
      "We are in the process of still helping Manute build a school, and we will continue with that,'' Ricker said.


      Bol greeted referee Dick Bavetta during a game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Chicago Bulls at



      Manute Bol was drafted in the second round of the 1985 NBA Draft by the Washington Bullets. He set a rookie record with 397 blocks, an average of five per game, which led the league that year.
