Cross-town Traffic

In the UK or US it's normally a pretty big deal when a politician switches party. Not in Southern Sudan.

Southern Sudan is divided into ten states, and one of these states, Warrap, just had the whole National Congress Party defect to the SPLM. That is 120 people.
"The NCP office is closed down because we have gone away with all members of the National Congress Party in the State. No one is left. All our youth and women have come with us," said Abur.
My SPLM colleague in Juba just shrugs and says "there weren't that many of them anyway".
