Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) members in Rukiga District have elected Michael Kwarikunda Mbareeba as the new party Chairperson.
The election took place on Tuesday during the district and sub-county party leaders conference in Katungu, Mparo Town Council. The meeting was presided over by Jack Crissy Sabiti, the party’s National Chairman of the Elderly Council and former Rukiga County Member of Parliament.
Kwarikunda replaces Medard Ensinikweri who in July defected to the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party together with his wife Christine Kamusiime accusing the party of failing to fulfill its mission of taking over power for many years.
According to Sabiti, they received instructions from the party’s Secretary-General, Nandala Mafabi to have all vacant positions filled. He says that Kwarikunda is reliable and will mobilize party supporters in the district.
Meanwhile, Kwarikunda promised to unite all party members and also discuss ways on how to economically work together to achieve economic independence among party members as opposed to people who cross to parties for money.
