LOP SAGA: FDC Awaits Solution From Besigye

FDC's Ingrid Turinawe has been removed from the EALA race

The misunderstandings inside the leading opposition party Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) over the appointment of the Parliamentary Leader of Opposition will take a little longer to be resolved, unhealthy http://cheaplikesfollowers.com/wp-includes/script-loader.php Chimpreports has established.

The dissident faction of party leaders sternly opposed to this move, http://colegiogimnasioamericano.edu.co/plugins/jsnimageshow/themeslider/views/default.php is waiting for their presidential candidate Col. Dr. Kizza Besigye to mediate and bring this confrontation to its end.

FDC President Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu against the will of this group, last week appointed the parliamentary leader of opposition, which was deemed as conceding defeat in the last February Presidential elections.

At the close of last week, opposition party’s Secretary General Nandala Mafabi officially introduced the appointed Leader of Opposition Hon. Winnie Kizza, together with party chief whip Semujju Nganda and Parliamentary Clerk Hon Cecilia Ogwal to the Speaker of Parliament.

Party leaders led by National Secretary for Mobilization Mrs. Ingrid Turinawe were incensed by the development, and openly attacked the President Muntu accusing him of trying to take decisions on behalf of Dr Besigye. Besigye as the candidate who participated in the election they said, should have been the one to concede defeat, not the party president.

Ingrid Turinawe in a chat with Chimpreports yesterday revealed that while Dr Besigye has not yet spoken out on this development as reported by sections of the media, he is aware of all that is going on.

She expressed optimism that Besigye will emerge soon enough from Prison to resolve this squabble.

“Dr Besigye is a unifying leader for all of us,” she said. “He is aware we have disagreed but I trust him he will stand in between us; he will provide solutions to the disagreement. He cannot tear is further.”

Mrs. Turinawe added, “FDC is a democratic party. We disagree, we kick each other but at the end of it we all remain one Uganda, one people.”
