UPDATE! Birigwa’s FDC National Delegates Conference Suspends Nandala, Amuriat

By Our Reporter





In the FDC Extraordinary National Delegates Conference that’s ongoing at Katonga Road, the National Executive Council has made a number of resolutions.



The resolutions read by Ibrahim Semujju Nganda at Katonga Road where a few delegates eventually gathered include appointing Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, as the interim party president as they ‘suspend’ Patrick Oboi Amuriat and Secretary General Nandala Mafabi .



Other resolutions include the extension of term of office and organs of the current office holders by six months from October 8th 2023.



They also resolved to fire the current Treasurer General, Hon. Ekanya Geoffrey and have him replaced by Hon. Francis Mwijukye while Harold Kaija replaces Nandala.



Fraudulent elections organized by Toterebuka Bamwenda be set aside.



That NEC should set up a disciplinary committee to investigate Nandala, Amuriat and Ekanya.



Put in place an interim Electoral Commission to organize free and fair elections. The names proposed are Chairperson, Hon Kabezurika, Deputy, Jack Wamai and Hon Ogong Johnson, Dr Elizabeth Kiwalabi.



Whether these resolutions are binding is a matter of debate considering that the High Court ruled this conference illegal.



The conference had Wasswa Birigwa and Dr. Kizza Besigye in attendance.



Earlier in the day, the anti-riot police had dispersed top members of FDC who had come to attend the national delegates conference organized by party chairman, Wasswa Birigwa today, September 19, 2023.



Images coming from Katonga road showed the delegates who had turned up scampering for dear lives after the police unleashed teargas on them.



The conference was planned to be in Busabala but it was shifted to Katonga Road offices as police blocked access to the initial venue.


On Monday, 18th September, 2023, the high Court had ruled against the holding of party delegates’ conference called by Birigwa.
