Eastern Uganda FDC leaders call for Internal dialogues to resolve Party disputes

District leaders of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) in Eastern Uganda have expressed their concerns about the ongoing conflicts within the party’s top leadership. They called on their leaders to cease making malicious claims against each other, as they believe it adversely affects their grassroots support.

During a press conference held in Jinja City on Wednesday, the district party leaders urged top officials to engage in internal dialogues to resolve conflicts instead of airing their differences in the media.

They noted that publicizing such disagreements has tarnished the party’s reputation and resulted in a decline in active support from grassroots members.

During the conference, the leaders also addressed rumors surrounding alleged financial support from President Yoweri Museveni to the current FDC top leadership. They stated that these talks have made the party appear untrustworthy to their grassroots supporters and subjected them to ridicule.

They also challenged the party founders, particularly Rtd. Dr. Col. Kiiza Besigye’s faction at the Katonga office, to refrain from openly differing from the official party positions. They argued that such public disagreements cause confusion and discourage effective mobilization of support for the party.

Besigye had previously advised the current FDC leadership to postpone elections and focus on resolving internal differences, but the leadership proceeded with party structure elections despite this advice.

Eunice Namatende, the Bugiri District FDC party secretary, stressed the importance of quality managerial skills among party leaders. She encouraged leaders to allow sufficient time and space for their successors to effectively execute their roles, instead of engaging in endless influence peddling.

Jamal Wante, the FDC chairperson in Namutumba district, urged the top leadership to refrain from publicly abusing each other, as it diminishes their value in the eyes of party supporters.

Enid Nabukwasi, the FDC Women’s chairperson in Jinja City, raised concerns about the funding of general elections within the party. She highlighted the need for transparency and accountability regarding the use of funds during the 2021 presidential elections.

Joseph Chemonges, the chairperson of FDC in Kapchorwa, called for unity among all factions within the party. He believes that fostering a sense of unity will lead to progressive development within the party as they prepare for upcoming elections.
