Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party president Mr. Patrick Amuriat has called for disciplinary action against the party spokesperson Mr. Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda and six other party leaders over what he called hostility towards the party.

In a letter dated 8th/ August /2023 addressed to Dokolo district LCV chairman Mr. James Otto who chairs the party’s disciplinary committee, Amuriat says in line with article 28(3)(b) of the party constitution, a disciplinary committee must be convened.

The leaders include; Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lugwago (acting deputy president), Kennedy Okello, the acting deputy secretary for presidency, and Dr. George Okello Ekwaro, the acting deputy secretary for mobilization.

Others are; Samuel Makhoka W’Mugenyi (Acting deputy for international & regional affairs), Mubarak Munyagwa, who is serving as the Acting secretary for mobilization and Amon Ayesigomwe Rubarema, the secretary for works and transport.

Amuriat has meanwhile moved to appoint other leaders in acting capacity to replace the listed members.

The fights started when Ssemujju accused the party secretary-general, Nandala Mafabi and Amuriat of picking money from President Museveni to fund their 2021 campaigns.

The call for disciplinary action has followed another tough decision by Nandala to sack Ssemujju as the party’s chief whip in Parliament.

James Otto Apili said he received Amuriat Oboi’s letter and he will meet the seven accused persons next week.
