GENERAL SPANCHO
36 year old Lawyer Mustapha Santigie Turay, erstwhile Vice President of the Sierra Leone Bar Association has passed away this morning in Freetown after suffering from a mysterious illness. Popularly known as 'General Spancho', Turay had only spent six years at the Bar but his six years as a lawyer was legendary to the extent that he became elected as Secretary-General of the Bar [and later as Vice President] after only 4 years at the Bar.

His death has shocked not only the legal community but the wider community in Sierra Leone especially members of the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ) whom he regularly provided pro-bono (free) services for.

Several journalists were quoted this morning, in a very melancholy mood, as saying one of Sierra Leone's shining stars has fallen.

At his family residence at the Lumley Roundabout, where his late father, Alhaji Abu Turay, was the Limba Tribal Headman for Lumley, a massive throng of sympathisers have gathered to sympathise with the family especially the elder sister, Madam Harriatu Turay, Deputy National Women's Leader of the opposition SLPP and the other sister, Hon. Salamatu Turay representing the Lumley Constituency in Parliament under the ruling All People's Congress.

The late gentleman, born a Muslim, converted to Christianity shortly before his death this morning and he will be buried as a Christian. Funeral arrangements will be announced later.

Sympathisers may call the distraught family through Harriatu Turay on +232-33-284393

May his soul Rest in Perfect Peace.
Amen.
