The Forum for Democratic Change top leaders on Tuesday held a series of meetings at the party headquarters in Najjanakumbi to iron out challenges polarizing the party cohesion and strength.

The recently concluded East African Legislative Assembly election exposed the high level of disharmony in the country’s biggest opposition party that ended up failing to secure a position for its member.

Yesterday the National Executive Committee, http://corpuschristimiami.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-e-commerce/wpsc-includes/display.functions.php the Youth League and Women’s League convened separate meetings which preceded the meeting of the top party figures.

All the meetings were closed door and no media house was invited.

The President, http://comotenerunabuenaereccion.com/wp-includes/class-wp-site.php Mugisha Muntu sat down with the Secretary General, Nandala Mafabi and former Presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye.

According to sources, there is a likelihood of internal revolt in the party if the top leaders continue to bicker.

“The incessant misunderstanding exhibited by our leaders is killing the party. We have to accept that our popularity is dwindling and time for action is fast reaching,” a source who is also a member NEC told this reporter.

The meeting of the three top figures lasted several hours and ended towards midnight.

When contacted on phone, Gen. Muntu confirmed meeting Besigye and Mafabi but said they only discussed how to develop capacity and dislodge the ruling National Resistance Movement party from power.

“We had a meeting yesterday but it was totally a different subject not crisis management as you are predicting. We are looking into the ways of building extra strength to uprooting the current system,” Muntu told our reporter on phone.

When asked about the EALA debacle since the Tuesday’s meeting was the first since FDC was rocked by confusion on candidates to represent the party, Muntu said the mistake had already been handled.

“The EALA election was a small challenge that we handled long time.”

The S.G Mafabi declined to comment on the matter when our reporter met him at his office at Parliament.

“I don’t know about any meeting or what you are trying to talk about,” Mafabi who was visibly uneasy with the subject said.

Efforts to get comments from Dr. Besigye were futile as he didn’t pick our repeated phone calls.
