Former Forum for Democratic Change, FDC President Rtd.Maj.Ge. Mugisha Muntu has this afternoon announced his official withdrawal from the opposition party.
After a long meeting held between members of his camp and that of his successor Patrick Oboi Amuriat at fairway hotel Kampala on Tuesday, Gen. Muntu released a statement indicating he was leaving the party.
This has been anticipated by several Ugandans especially due to the different ideology of the former CDF against that of the party. While he believes in engagement of voters at grass root level, the other faction believes in defiance and demos.
“Following our nationwide consultations that were carried out between 15/1/2018 to 7/9/2018, I today held a meeting with party president of the FDC Hon. Patrick Oboi Amuriat to discuss our findings and resolutions. I hereby would like to inform the country of our decision to leave the FDC with immediate effect” he wrote.
Gen. Muntu added that he will hold a press conference on Thursday this week to discuss his decision and future plans.
Today’s intense meeting was also attended by Alice Alaso, new Arua MP Kassiano Wadri and Sewava Serubiri an FDC elder in the General’s campa. While Joyce Ssebugwawo, Wycliff Bakandonda, Hon. Mubarack Munyagwa also attended from the POA camp.
