FDC Secretary General Nandala Mafabi has rolled out the party’s strategy to take power in the 2016 elections, there http://demo.des.net.id/smpharapankita/wp-includes/deprecated.php citing a robust communication network among leaders; mobilisation of resources across the world; opening up offices in all districts of Uganda and a massive grassroots political education and mobilisation.

Mafabi said since he came to office on June 15, prescription http://cheaplikesfollowers.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-base.php 2015, troche the Secretariat has been busy organizing FDC Presidential Flag bearer elections.

“The office of Secretary General halted a number of activities because it did not want to interfere with the Presidential candidates’ countrywide campaigns. Since this is now coming to an end, other programs are now going to be rolled out immediately,” said Mafabi.

He was speaking at the FDC National Delegates Conference taking place at Mandela National Stadium in the outskirts of Kampala city on Wednesday.

Offices  

“We thank the districts with functional offices. As a party, we want to operationalise all district offices by making a humble contribution of Shs 100,000 per month for rent,” said Mafabi.

“We shall need agreements a twelve months agreement between the FDC district branch and the land lords with advance payment of 6 months.  Those with already functional offices can use this fund in running the office.”

Mafabi urged all districts to open FDC District bank accounts for ease of transfer of money, adding, “The party has greatly suffered from dishonest people within our midst and therefore, we want to make all transactions through bank accounts. Those who can negotiate for less rental fees, the difference will be used for the day today work in the offices.”

Mafabi said the telephones he pledged are ready for collection but quickly added that “this is Party property and will therefore be managed by the District General Secretary. Guidelines on the usage of these phones have been communicated.”

He also observed that the party is in the process of withdrawing all old stamps, to replace them with new ones.

The firebrand FDC leader could not leave the podium without firing a salvo at the NRM which he accused of heavily monetising Uganda’s politics.

Wolves

“Colleagues, I implore all of us to get up and work extra hard so that we are able to salvage this country from human wolves!  NRM is using money to buy support amongst the population and using propaganda that they are very strong as we can all see, it is at its weakest,” said Mafabi.

“Let us use our energies and the little resources we have to interact with the population in our respective places. It is during these interactions that we can preach the message of change. The population is now ready to listen to us,” he added.

Primaries

The Party Electoral Commission will conduct Party‘s Primary Elections at all levels between September 2, 2015 and October 15, 2015.

Mafabi said the most significant political development in the opposition has been the grand political alliance known as The Democratic Alliance (TDA) which he said is an umbrella of all democracy-fostering organizations to which FDC subscribes.

“It is important to note that the decision to join TDA was discussed and passed in NEC. Through NEC, the Party committed itself to fulfill all the conditions and requirements in TDA’s Protocol,” said Mafabi.

TDA is expected to decide on the joint presidential candidate against the ruling party in the 2016 race.

He described FDC as a “home built on the foundations of unity, peace, reconciliation, prosperity, accountability, transparency, commitment, mutual respect, decency, trust and open discussion.’

The FDC Secretary General said through the department of Publicity and Information with the help of Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD) and other Partners, the political organisation obtained copies of the Party Constitution, Party Agenda, and Strategic Plan.

“We are also developing a Party Brochure and copies of simplified Policy Agenda booklets. These documents will be distributed to all districts so that people can know more about what FDC as a party,” said Mafabi.

The Secretary General promised to visit districts to meet and discuss with leaders about pertinent issues necessary for bringing cohesion in the party.

He said FDC will as well train the Youth and Women in leadership on how to articulate party values.

Mafabi went ahead to praise the Democratic Governance Facility (DGF), Netherland Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD), International Republican Institute (IRI) and The Conservative Party UK for their continued financial support to the party.

He also praised the Government of Uganda through the Electoral commission for obliging to the Party financing Act passed five years ago thus releasing Shs 1,163,522,013 to FDC.

Mafabi said, “These resources have greatly helped us in building of our party structures and implementing other party related activities.”
