Late Peter had joined The Niles journalism training programme in what were then northern and southern Sudan right at its beginning in 2009. At the time, he was working for the daily “The Citizen” in Juba, which has been shut down in August 2015 by the government. The team of Sudan Votes – now The Niles – got to know and appreciate Peter as a young and enthusiastic talent with a special drive for peace, truth and social justice, who went on to pursue a very promising career in journalism. Strikingly, the headline of one of his last articles read: “Army, Police to take up 60 percent of this year’s budget”. The 27-year-old political reporter was working for the New Nation newspaper and the Corporate Newspaper weekly.
