Vice President Dr James Wani Igga and the newly appointed Governor of Central Equatoria State Agustino Jadalla have reportedly reconciled their political differences for the second time to put an end to division among the Bari sections.

The reconciliation held on Friday was mediated by SPLM’s  2nd Deputy Chairman Daniel Awet, and Mary Apayi who is the party’s 2nd Deputy Secretary General for Administration and Finance, the Vice President’s press unit has reported.

Similar reconciliation was held in September 2021 when the Catholic and Episcopal Churches brought the two leaders together of political differences causing disunity within the Bari Community.

Due to the rift, the Bari cultural groups had for the past two years commemorated their founding father Jubek separately.

In February last year, dispute re-emerged during a memorial prayer of Late Alfred Keri Yoke, prompting former Juba County commissioner Charles Josepha Wani to close down the Bari Association, a decision the Chairman of Bari Community, Stephen Pitia Laku had described as politically motivated, and unconstitutional.

The office of the Vice President views the latest reconciliation as testament of true reconciliation and a symbol of Unity and Love to the Bari Community, Central Equatoria State, the SPLM at State level.
