Thanks for this post. I am Diocese of Iowa coordinator for our companion relationship with Nzara. I try to keep up with the news from western Equatoria and was trying to confirm who the AB for the new internal province of Western Equatoria was. You provided the answer and Bp. Peni of Nzara told me the enthronement was today, Dec. 11, 2016. God Bless your work. Peace, Ray
