Wanji, a member of the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) and a former chairman of specialized Committee for Finance and Economic affairs in the National Legislative Assembly, died on Monday in the national capital, Juba.

He was also a chairman of Public Accounts Committee in Sudanese government in Khartoum before South Sudan broke away and established an independent state in July 2011.

Late Wanji who was born in 1936 died at the age of 80, according to his family sources.

Wanji hails from Golo ethnic community in Wau county of Western Bahr el Ghazal state. He was elected to the parliament in Juba in 2010.

The late has been suffering from illness for a long time which resulted to his demise.

A family member told Sudan Tribune on Tuesday that the South Sudan national parliament administration was in contact with them for arrangements over the preparations for his burial in Wau, his home town.

Meanwhile, South Sudan president, Salva Kiir, has described Wanji’s death as a great loss to the people of South Sudan, “not only the people of Wau state.”
