Kampala, Uganda | The Black Examiner – The Opposition Cabinet, led by Chief Opposition Whip John Baptist Nambeshe, has taken the decision to engage with both factions of the Forums for Democratic Change (FDC) party in an attempt to foster reconciliation.

The conflicts within the party arose between the faction headed by FDC President Patrick Oboi Amuriat and Secretary General Nathan Nandala Mafabi, and the Katonga-based faction under former party leader Dr. Kizza Besigye. The disputes revolved around alleged financial transactions involving high-ranking officials and their connections with the NRM camp. This divergence of views has led to a widening gap between the two sides.

The fissure also led to the FDC Secretary General dismissing Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, the FDC Whip in Parliament. Additionally, the Party President summoned several party leaders, including Erias Lukwago, the Deputy President for the Central Region, Ssemujju Nganda, and Mubarak Munyagwa, among others, to face the party’s Disciplinary Committee for alleged misconduct.

Nambeshe now discloses that the alternate Government has come to a resolution that the Leader of the Opposition, Mathias Mpuuga, should organize an Opposition Caucus meeting as a step towards reconciling the factions at odds with each other.
