    November 25, 2009 (WASHINGTON) – The Sudanese first vice president Salva Kiir survived an accident today that was caused by the rupture in one of the tires on the plane he and his delegations were boarding, Ugandan media reported.

    However the foul play was ruled out. The incident brings back bitter memory on the death later SPLM leader John Garang who was killed after his helicopter crashed en route from Uganda.

    The pilot managed to steer the plane away from hitting the trees which was almost certain to cause harm to the passengers.

    The government of Southern Sudan sent another plane to instead of the Antonov 74 cargo plane.

    Kiir was in Uganda to discuss the border tensions with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.
