It is with deep sadness that CSPS management and staff received the news of passing on of Prof. Samson Samuel Wassara a senior fellow at the center on 29th December 2020 in Khartoum, Sudan. Prof. Wassara was an active Senior Fellow at CSPS and carried out important policy researches since he joined the center’s fellowship team. The country will certainly missed him both as a renown scholar and a nationalist who was a refined embodiment of a good citizen. His legacy as a knowledge producer and mentor to hundreds of Sudanese and South Sudanese students and academics will stay for generations. The center will certainly miss both his wisdom and kindness.He was one of the finest brain powers of South Sudan.We pay our sincerely condolences to his father, wife, children, the entire Wassara family and the people of South Sudan. Rest in enternal peace Professor.
