Taban Lo Liyong (born 1939) is a poet, academic and writer of fiction and literary criticism from South Sudan.

He was born in Kajo Kaji, Acholiland, in the Equatoria region of southern Sudan, but taken to Uganda at an early age.

His political views, as well as his outspoken disapproval of the post-colonial system of education in East Africa, have inspired both further criticism as well as controversy since the late 1960s.
