Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party has re-opened offices in Arua district. After the 2011 general elections, FDC offices in the district were closed because the party failed to pay rent.
The new offices are located along Arua Rhino-Camp road.
Hajji Abdulhakim Molli, the FDC district registrar Arua told URN in an interview that they have already paid the office rent for eight months at a monthly fee of 250,000 shillings.
Cue in: â€œFor the last electionsâ€
Cue outâ€¦ â€œUntil the next five yearsâ€
The district registrar says the money was raised through contributions from party members.
Arua FDC chairman, Hamza Manzu says they have been struggling to survive in the last four years in coordinating party affairs due to the absence of office.
â€œWe will now fully coordinate our party activities since members and supporters of the party can easily access us,â€ Manzu said.
