Juba, August 5, 2013 (SSNA) — The ongoing political squabbling among members of the South Sudan’s ruling party has taken an unlikely turn. Leading figures of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) have ordered a clandestine restructuring of the party with intent to identity and root out any member whom the party sees as a menace.
The decision to reorganize the party was made and implemented without the knowledge of the entire leadership.
The latest development, if put into practice, will define the future of the SPLM.
In a memo circulated among party’s elites and obtained by the South Sudan News agency, the group tasked with finding the fix for the party’s internal problems has come up with a resolution that could mean either success or collapse of the party.
“Our main objective is to disown members of political bureau who do not support the vision of the party. Any member who doesn’t agree with party’s platform must be rooted out”, the 1493 words document reads in part.
The reorganization plan was officially launched on July 18, 2013, the South Sudan News Agency has learned.
