Death has robbed Terekeka State of this prominent Chief Makir Könyi. Chief Makir was one of the renowned Chiefs in Nyikabur village who commands the respect of his people. During the 2010 General elections, I as the Commissioner of Terekeka Country visited him to assess how he prepares his people to cope with the elections. I found him educating his people the method on how to vote and I got a huge people around him. This shows that he was a respected community leader around that area. The Mundari people have lost an important figure who has contributed immensely to his people and to the 2010 general elections as well as to the referendum that resulted in the new nation of South Sudan. God gives and takes, May his soul rest in peace.
