Reference Mini-review
NSS-GIB, 2013. Current political situation and its containment strategy [Operating document] National Security Service - General Intelligence Bureau. Accessed online.

This is apparently a leaked top-secret document which, if genuine, provides insights into the political events of later 2013. It is a funding proposal by the NSS-GIB to enhance their capacity to know about the potentially destabilizing activities of some politicians and their supporters in the run-up to the SPLM's Third National Convention. Also for organizing support campaigns in South Sudan and internationally. It includes a budget for USD 7m. It lists various political figures as suspected of running 'underground political campaigns' (see topic tags and the original document for names).
