South Sudan: SPLM convention in Juba aims to reunify party

The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement, which fractured at the beginning of the civil war, is holding a reunification convention, but with leading figures absent, it remains to be seen what can be achieved.

South Sudan‘s ruling party is hoping to unite the different factions that split after the civil war began broke out almost five years ago.

It’s holding a three-day convention aimed at to implementing a 2015 agreement signed in Tanzania.
