May 4, 2018 (PW) — The midwives gathered in the birth city earlier in the week for the imminent reincarnation of the GOP or Grand Old Party as diehards recently referred to the SPLM. The process leading to the eventual rebirth had started in the year 2014 in Tanzania Arusha. Since then it moved to various capitals including Cairo, Kampala, Addis Ababa and Cape town at the bottom of the continent.  This is not an easy task.

You can go forward and back in a palindrome and find it the same organisation that has brought down a giant nation in a matter of three years after taking the mantle. Glad that we find people who are ready to explain the past events and how the same organisation got reincarnated over and over again.The fall out of 1991 followed by the rebirth of 2002. This time its believed to be the same except that one of those who founded the organisation and led it for 22 years is no longer there but his former nemesis is still a force to content with.

The Juba May 4th reincarnation event can be explained in the context and concept of the great Indian reincarnation. There is a small organ in the SPLM known as the National Liberation Council central to the genesis of the 2013 conflict within the party.

The faceless council for the second time now tries to break the news that the mission is accomplished. The secretary general who have been acting for 4 years know thinks that the reincarnation will bring peace to the party’s soul along with that of the country.

The Samsara doctrine of cyclic existence puts it forward that there is after life. This is call reincarnation. It is the fact of life that death happens too frequently. Transmigration another name of reincarnation allows life to appear in another physical form.

Its philosophy is that if one used to do good things, he/she can appear in a higher form to that he/she used to be. A human being who used to lead excellent life would be born as a cow. On the other hand, those who used to do bad things or led below par life would be born as lower creatures in form. Rats, cockroaches and even mosquitoes are some of those reincarnation result.

The second philosophy is found in the great Bible when Jesus was asking his followers that, how can anyone put the new patch onto old wineskins?

People of South Sudan know better the form the planned reincarnation of the SPLM would take based on the past physical existence of the organisation. This is informed by whether it was doing good things or bad in its former life pre – 2013.

The old SPLM at this point in time cannot be reborn as a whole and proper organ. SPLM IO (Riek’s faction) remains in the bush. SPLM Former Detainees under former SG are in and out of the government of national unity. Now, it’s the two fractions under Kiir and Taban that are attempting to coalesce in the test tube.
