The Opposition Chief Whip and Party Spokesperson of FDC Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda
was responding to questions in regards to some of the FDC members abandoning
party activities and have turned to the Alliance for National Transformation
led by former FDC president Mugisha Muntu and People Power, a pressure group
led by Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi.
While in a tweet chat organized by Parliament on Wednesday at the Leader of
Opposition’s boardroom, Ssemujju says they see no problem when members
quit the party. He says that the important thing is that FDC will continue
with its activities despite the movement of people.
He says that the party is starting on massive recruitment of its members. He
says that although they can’t stop anyone from leaving the party, they will endeavor
to keep the members.

Cue out…growing the FDC”//
According to Ssemujju, they have overcome the conflict that had fractured the party
between Mugisha Muntu and Opposition Leader Kiiza Besigye.

Cue out:…as a team”//
Several FDC members have expressed concern at the direction that
the party is taking and have vowed to quit the party if issues are not resolved.
Many others have stopped paying their contribution to the party, while others
are seen to associate more with other political parties.
