Costa said that “the South Sudan we would like to see is a peaceful and loving country through cultures. It is very nice to see brotherhood coming together and dance together. Today I see Dinka and Nuer dancing together, the Shiliuk with the Moro dancing together, celebrating the joy of peace – so it was really joyous day.”
She added that “seeing the unity of South Sudan in the students will bring peace and harmony in the rural and urban communities.”
Joseph Raymond, a member of the organizing committee and a Secretary General for Student’s Affairs at the University said that “no culture is above other culture.”

Raymond who was speaking very excited said he lacked words to describe the event but the event was expected to bring peace and harmony between the students in the campus.
He said “Exactly very wonderful day – people never expected that people would have danced together as it happened, see Dinka and Nuer and other tribe dancing together really recall the real South Sudan we aim to build. We need South Sudan that full of peace and respect to other culture. No culture is above another culture. We are important as South Sudanese and our cultures are very unique indeed.”
