Kampala, Uganda | The Black Examiner  РThe president of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party, Mr. Patrick Amuriat, has urged for disciplinary measures to be taken against party spokesperson Mr. Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda and six other party leaders, citing their perceived hostility towards the party.

In a communication dated August 8th, 2023, directed to Mr. James Otto, the chairman of the party’s disciplinary committee and also the LCV chairman of Dokolo district, Amuriat highlighted that as per article 28(3)(b) of the party’s constitution, the convening of a disciplinary committee is a necessary step.


Among the individuals in question are: Erias Lukwago, the Kampala Lord Mayor who also serves as the acting deputy president; Kennedy Okello, acting deputy secretary for presidency; Dr. George Okello Ekwaro, acting deputy secretary for mobilization; Samuel Makhoka W’Mugenyi, acting deputy for international & regional affairs; Mubarak Munyagwa, currently the acting secretary for mobilization; and Amon Ayesigomwe Rubarema, the secretary for works and transport.

In response to this situation, Amuriat has taken steps to appoint interim leaders to take the place of the aforementioned members.

Tensions escalated after Ssemujju accused the party’s secretary-general, Nandala Mafabi, and Amuriat of receiving financial support from President Museveni for their 2021 campaign activities.

This call for disciplinary measures follows another significant decision made by Nandala to dismiss Ssemujju from his role as the party’s chief whip in Parliament.

Mr. James Otto Apili confirmed the receipt of Amuriat Oboi’s letter and announced plans to meet with the accused individuals in the upcoming week.
