It should be remembered that after losing to Gen. Mugisha Muntu during the party presidential race, dosage http://celiac-disease.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/photon.php Mafabi cited several election irregularities as the cause for his loss.

“I concede I was defeated by Gen. Muntu and I believe it was never my time but his time to lead the party; if any rigging takes place during the special party delegates conference, this we shall deal with it,” Mafabi told the press at his home in Kyambogo in Kampala on Wednesday.

“We shall do whatever it takes to ensure that these elections this time round are free and fair,” Mafabi assured the press.

This comes at a time when the party is handling several election petitions which must be resolved before the party delegates conference convenes on Friday, June 12 so as to elect the party leaders at the national level.

Mafabi denied leading any faction against the party president, observing that if it was the case, members of his camp wouldn’t have remained working within the current administration.

“There are no rifts within the party and any thoughts that I am standing as the party Secretary General with the aim of over shadowing Muntu are all falsehoods.”

“When given the mandate of being the Secretary General (SG), I have no ambitions of overshadowing the president since I am just a worker under him.”

Mafabi reiterated that his decision to stand as the party Secretary General is to energize the party so as to move forward and faster towards the goal of capturing power.

“There is no time for dilly-dallying but to move FDC forward. As party SG, I will join hands with the party leaders to mobilize resources for party and ensure proper accountability and transparency mechanisms are in place,” he added.

“I will make sure that all our party leagues are functional but particularly we shall ensure that these leagues constitute themselves into cooperatives so that apart from party work, they also have a livelihood. By doing so, these leagues will remain vibrant throughout the year.”

He added, “When elected, I will make sure that the party has vibrant and functional district offices as soon as possible, furnished with computers and internet to aid effective dissemination of information from the party headquarters to the grassroots vice versa.”
