“That’s the information I have. So many NRM followers in western Uganda have in recent weeks been joining FDC,” Wafula told Chimpreports today.

It has also emerged that 300 members from the ruling party on Wednesday afternoon surrendered their party cards and t-shirts to FDC leader, Mugisha Muntu during a sensitization workshop at Thomas Hall in Bundibugyo Town.

According to Nyakato Rusoke, a senior member on the FDC Women League, “many Ugandans are dissatisfied with this system and Bundibugyo could not wait to pour out their hearts.”

Gen Muntu and his campaign strategist Hon Christopher Kibanzanga were not readily available for comment as their known mobile telephones were switched off by the time we posted this story.

Muntu has for the last three weeks been holding a series of meetings with youth groups and opinion leaders in western Uganda as part of a wider plan for a massive grassroots campaign ahead of the 2016 presidency.

The development is likely to send chilling currents down the spines of NRM bosses as secret campaigns for the 2016 elections heat up.

It also comes high on the heels of recent confrontations between Police and Rwenzururu King, Charles Wesley Mumbere.

Police said it blocked the traditional leader from traveling to Bundibugyo to avoid ethnic clashes between the Bamba and Bakonjo.

Political observers are likely to argue that Muntu took the advantage of the high tensions to drum up support for his party.
