After holding the National Executive Committee (NEC) emergency meeting on Wednesday, Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party has unleashed a ‘deadly’ team which will wipe out the recently named People Power countrywide coordinators.
After losing Hoima and Kaboong Woman MP by-elections, FDC party has decided to distance themselves from People Power, which is led by Kyandondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi aka BobiWine, who is determined to oust the old regime of bush war heroes.
After Bobi Wine announced his coordinators to garner him grass root support for presidential elections ahead of 2021, FDC’s National Executive Committee, which is the administrative organ of the party comprising 86 members, chaired by the party President Hon. Eng. Patrick Oboi Amuriat, has also released their team to also start immediate grass root mobilization.
Imbrahim Semujju, the party spokesperson, revealed Monday that the National Executive Committee (NEC) resolved that general mobilization which includes meeting of FDC grassroots leadership, recruitment of new members and meeting the public should be re-enforced.
“For purpose of this mobilization, FDC divided the country into seven regions and appointed teams to lead this new mobilization drive.” Semujju said.
He added that “The constitutional changes arising from the satanic Raphael Magyezi Bill, have affected our Roadmap as they have brought forward nominations of the president and Members of Parliament. The presidential nominations according to the EC are scheduled for August next year. The FDC organs will discuss whether internal elections are brought forward or postponed until after the general elections.”
