March 20, 2017 (SSB) — For those whose Luanyjang is not familiar to, be informed that this community is one of the largest sections of Dinka of Bahr el Gazal in South Sudan. The community is situated in the then Tonj East in the defunct Warrap state. Luanyjang shared Tonj East with Rek Jalwau of a renowned sultan Gum Mading Akuecbeny until the idea of having many states and counties emerged.
Due to the creation of more states that led to the subsequent creation of unregulated more counties, Luanyjang was lucky to be divided into four counties of its own. Luanyjang is currently part of Tonj state. The community was known for its famous spiritual leader Aguer Adel Makol.
