J. J. Akol (2008). Conference of Traditional Authority Leaders in Western Equatoria State

The three-day conference brought together, for the first time, the chiefs and traditional leaders of Western Equatoria State. Attendees included paramount chiefs, head chiefs sub-chiefs and other traditional leaders, representing all ethnic communities of the state. (See briefs).

Invited participants and observers included three paramount chiefs Dut Malwal Arop from Lakes State, Madelena Tito from Eastern Equatoria State and Dennis Paramolo from Central Equatoria State. As these paramount chiefs chair their respective councils already formed, they were pivotal in advising and guiding Western Equatoria Chiefs and Traditional Leaders in discussing issues among themselves and in the formation of "Council of Leaders of Traditional Authority" in their state.
