A Democratic Party faction led by Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has opened its first office in Luweero Town Council.
This was one of the activities undertaken by the group which boycotted the national delegate\'s conference now taking place at Katomi Kingdom Resort, Wakiso.
Lukwago, accompanied by hundreds of DP enthusiasts entered Luweero at around 2:30pm amidst pomp. He was accompanied by MPs; Latif Ssebaggala, Ssebuliba Mutumba, Mathias Mpuuga and Moses Kasibante among other enthusiasts.
In his brief speech, Lukwago said that today\'s events marked the start of efforts to save DP from slipping into oblivion and cause fundamental change ahead of the 2016 general election. He said the office located at Bwabye road off Kampala-Gulu highway will coordinate campaigns and DP activities in Katikamu North Constituency and Luweero district.

Samuel Lubega Mukaku, a former presidential aspirant says that party supporters were tired of running as spectators in Uganda\'s leadership.
The LC 3 chairperson for Luweero town council Charles Ssebyala says DP supporters in Luweero have joined Lukwago\'s faction after the mainstream party failed to address issues raised in the enormous petitions submitted to them.
Ssebyala accuses DP leaders in Luweero of engaging in electoral malpractices in order to manipulate representatives to the National Delegates conference in Katomi.
