Wasswa Biriggwa has pulled out of the Forum for Democratic Change –FDC
party presidential flag bearer race.
During the FDC national council meeting held on Thursday at the party
headquarters in Najjanankumbi, Birigggwa said he does not want to divide the
party like it was in the previous elections.
//Cue in: "We’ve been travelling…
Cue out: “…most importantly.//
//Cue in: "Ng’abantu banti nnyo...
Cue out: “...party Yaffe mumaaso.//
Patrick Oboi Amuriat expressed gratitude for Biriggwa’s action and admitted that he had underestimated
Biriggwa’s leadership skills and loyalty to the party five years ago when he contested
for the chairmanship of the FDC.
//Cue in: "Nearly five years…
Cue out: “… I take this flag.//
The FDC party’s Electoral Commission Chairman Toterebuka Bamwenda later officially declared Amurait the FDC flag bearer. Bamwenda lauded Biriggwa for
his great love for the party and also appreciated the two candidates'
willingness to avoid clashes during the joint campaigns.
//Cue in: "They traversed...
Cue out: “…to that end.//
The party Vice-Chairperson Roland Kaginda noted that Biriggwa’s
gesture is an indication that FDC’s democratic institutions have grown.
