As we are still at the state of shock by the announcement of the tragic passing of Prof. Dr. Wani Tombe Lako, our language fails to express how deeply and profoundly we feel pain in our heart, we express our heartfelt condolence to the family, particularly to elder brother Mr. Lawrence Modi Tombe, Mr. Steven Tombe Lako, the brother of Dr. Wani Tombe Lako, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and the former chairman of the Bari Community of Canada, the family in Juba, and to the entire nation of South Sudan in diaspora, and in South Sudan.
The immense suffering and hardship that Prof. Dr. Wani Tombe Lako endured for the sake of establishing a peaceful South Sudan will surely be recognized by the people of South Sudan down through the ages.
For this, we owe him a debt of gratitude, his magnificent work and vision are the things we must now all seek to realize, we are sure that his ideas and his teaching will long live in the hearts of the people all over the world, and his name will remain a symbol of kindness and tolerance.

Prof. Dr. Wani Tombe Lako had accomplished great work in incredibly various fields such as in politic, academic, and peace, and maybe much more, please be consoled by the realization that his life has touched so many in many positive and uplifting ways, he was an incredible man who left a deep and lasting legacy behind.
May the love and mercy of our Lord be bestowed upon the family during this unfortunate time.
