M.S. TURAY & ASSOCIATES FIRM PAYS TRIBUTE TO MUSTAPHA SANTIGIE TURAY ESQ.

Gone too Soon was Michael Jacksons track in tribute to a HIV victim. MUSTAPHA S. TURAY has indeed gone too soon. In his prime, he felt the compelling and irresistible call to the celestial.

 

Today the Law Firm of M. S. TURAY & ASSOCIATES grieves. We are saddened and ineffably grappling to come to terms with the incongruity of life and death. MUSTAPHA gave us no notice of his departure, actual or constructive.

 

He held closely to prayer sessions and emphasized his faith in God. He assured us of his communication with God barely Twenty-Four (24) hours to his demise. He felt some unprecedented inner peace, an experience he attributed to his closeness to God. Today, we are consoled that he has received a graceful welcome into eternal bliss.

 

MUSTAPHA SANTIGIE TURAY was born on the 7th August 1973. At 36 years, M. S. TURAY was Head of one of our Countrys Dynamic Law Firms; a Firm which was established as a Partnership in 2008 with MUSTAPHA S. TURAY, JAMES M. FORNAH-SESAY and SOLOMON A. J. JAMIRU as the founding Partners.

 

M. S. TURAYS astute leadership was unequalled. He conducted his legal practice from our aptly named SPANCHO CHAMBERS with such alacrity and consummate competence. His relationship with Colleagues, Judges & Magistrates and people across all strata of life bore no barriers.


Lawyer Mustapha Santigie Turay

When the Doctor confirmed the death of our dear Head of Chambers at the entrance of Connaught Hospital on Saturday 7th November 2009, it was attended with emotional grief and awe. It was around 02:30 hours.

 

Then the shock and speechlessness of Colleagues, Relatives and Friends who witnessed the sad occurrence, were heightened by the silence and ambience of the transition between night and morning. Now the cellular phone lines started to become busy as news of the event spread like the Monsoon winds.

 

Has this thing really happened? Minds have been juggling; reminiscence have preoccupied us of his phenomenal nature. This iconic figure has left the stage.

 

Now that the event has happened, and MUSTAPHA S. TURAY has taken his place with our fathers, we owe him the duty of upholding his legacy; the duty to uphold the legacy of devotion to Legal Practice and sensitivity to humanity.

 

Coming from a Muslim background, SPANCHO was a devout follower of Prophet Mohammad, observing the essential Muslim rites; yet accommodated and respected Christians and persons on the other sides of the religious isle (if you may permit). He loved and resided with his brothers and sisters at Lumley, their family house. He relocated to his own house and lived there barely 10days before his death.

 

As a Firm, we pay tribute to a Senior, the former Secretary-General and former Vice President of the Sierra Leone Bar Association; former General of the White Political family and a member of the Sigma, Liberals, Islands, Embala and other Social Clubs at the Fourah Bay College. SPANCHO will no longer lend his voice to our political discourse, which was one of his notable pastimes.

 

MUSTAPHA SANTIGIE TURAY, it was a life short-lived, but well-lived. May your contribution to our Legal System and Society at large ever find a sacred place in our hearts.  Rest-In-Peace.


M. S. TURAY & ASSOCIATES (SPANCHO CHAMBERS)
Freetown, Sierra Leone.
