The four members are Hon Barnabas Tinkasiimire, Theodore Ssekikuubo, Winfred Niwagaba and Mohamed Nsereko, who lost their seats after being dismissed from their NRM party over indiscipline.

The Constitutional Court recently ruled the Members’ presence at Parliament was illegal and ordered the Electoral Commission to arrange for fresh polls.

Speaker of Parliament Hon Rebecca Kadaga has since heeded the Court’s orders to disallow the affected members from accessing or partaking in any of Parliament’s activities.

Hon Nabila told press on Monday that FDC was in utmost solidarity with the embattled MPs and that it would do anything possible to help them retain their seats.

“We are ready to burn our fuel and traverse with them through their constituencies, to assure voters that these are the kind of leaders the country needs,” said Nabila.

“It’s not a formality that any political seat that goes vacant, FDC must front a contestant. When we identify a person that we think, in spite of party differences, fully supports good governance and democracy, there is no reason why we cannot support them.”

Nabila further said FDC doors remained open for the rebel MPs, if they wished to join the biggest opposition front to uproot the existing government in the 2016 elections.


The MPs were accused by NRM of openly confronting the president, party policies and structures rather than using the available internal avenues to vent out their grievances.


The MPs have since appealed to the Supreme Court despite EC’s rollout of the programme for the by-elections.
