Former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC)party President, Rtd.Gen. Gregory Mugisha Muntu has finally on Tuesday officially quit the party with immediate effect.
Gen Muntu’s divorce with FDC leadership came following an emergency meeting with FDC president Patrick Oboi Amuriat at Fairway Hotel Kampala, which was concluded with out resolution.
It’s said that a group of FDC youth extremists stormed the meeting at Fairway Hotel and started calling Muntu a traitor and a mole.
“A section of the youth are against this meeting, what we need to appreciate is that Muntu’s activities were not sanctioned by the party,” Amuriat said before being whisked away by the youth.
In a statement that later circulated on Social Media which Muntu denied having a hand said through his consultations, he was advised to quit FDC.
“Fellow Ugandans, following our nationwide consultations that were carried out between 15/1/2018 and 7/9/2018, I today held a meeting with party president of the Forum for Democratic Change (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. We will be holding a press conference on Thursday the 27. of October 2018 to discuss this and our future plans in detail. God bless you all.
Maj. Gen. (rtd) Mugisha Muntu”
