Wani Igga appreciated the demonstration of the State’s leadership to work together with the national government leadership; commending building of the nation needs join hands of both the national and state governments.
According to Igga, intermarriages may improve relationship among the different communities and may strengthen further the unity of the people of South Sudan.
