Joseph James Tombura (born 1929 and died before 1996),[1] a South Sudanese politician and member of the Sudan African National Union, was president of the High Executive Council of the Southern Sudan Autonomous Region, serving from 23 June 1982 to 5 June 1983, until the Sudanese central government revoked the autonomy of that region. Autonomy was restored in 2005, and six years later South Sudan became an independent nation.
