Liberal Democratic Transparency (LDT) party Secretary General, discount http://ccimiowa.com/wp-includes/._class.wp-styles.php  Zaid Mukasa has accused the former Kampala mayor, generic http://coffinpump.com/wp-includes/pomo/entry.php Alhaji Nasser Ntege Sebagala commonly known as Seya, for masquerading as the party president.

Electoral Commission (EC) was on Monday rejected Seya’s nomination forms, advising him to first settle all issues in his party leadership before he could be allowed to contest for presidency in the 2016 general elections.

The party SG told journalists at Melting Pot restaurant in Kampala on Thursday that Seya’s character had never changed and that he had continued to run on forgery, deceiving people that he is the party president.

“Seya presented forged party documents to the Electoral Commission indicating that he is the party president. He went ahead and picked nomination forms  in the names of the party; he is carrying fake party card as well,” Mukasa said.

Mukasa explained that during the party’s Delegates Conference on May 29, 2010 at Hotel Royale- Nakasero-Kampala, Seya showed interest to join the party together with other people with whom he had defected from Democratic Party (DP).

“Conditions were set for him and many others, one of which was to register with the party in a period of six months from the date of the Delegates Conference, which they never did.”

Mukasa added that during the six months period, Seya’s group was given temporary membership and were also reminded and warned over the expiry and eventually the termination of their membership and in the same period, Seya defected to NRM.

“After failing to comply with the resolutions of the Delegates Conference, and after expiry of his temporary membership and after defecting to NRM, in November 2010, Seya ceased to be LDT member; he is therefore neither a party president as claimed nor a member.”

“The party executive committee advised Seya to stand as an independent candidate in the forth coming general elections of 2016.”

LDT under the new presidency of Abdunoor Kiggundu is a member of an alliance named Coalition Redeem Uganda (CRU) whose flag bearer is Dr. Abed Bwanika of Peoples’ Development Party (PDP).
